Can'T Redirect To Checkout.Php After Paying - Chapter 19

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

 

I can't get a redirect back to the "checkout.php" in chapter 19.

 

I am using a personalised paypal button.

 

Firstly; are these lines correct in checkout.php?

// customer is logged in and this page has access to the customer's ID:
session_id)£id);

// this page receives the order total: $subtotal = $_SESSION['cart'][$row['print_id']]['quantity'] * $_SESSION['cart'][$row['print_id']]['price'];

Secondly; heres the code from view_cart.php with my paypal button, but the problem is that it's not directing it back to checkout.php (above code may be incorrect?)

    <!--- this is where the user comes back to after they finished making the payment --->
    <input type="hidden" name="notify_url" Value="http://wolfcut.co.uk/checkout.php" />

    <!-- Specify details about the item that buyers will purchase. -->
    '.$string_of_item_names.'
	'.$string_of_item_amounts.'
    <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="GBP">


    <!-- Display the payment button. -->
    <div align="center">
	<input type="image" name="submit" border="0" align="center" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynow_LG.gif"
        alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online">
    <img alt="" border="0" width="1" height="1" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" >
	</div>

Any advice is appreciated. Thanking you!

"session_id)£id);" seems like a syntax error. So does the following (unless you're starting your echo statement somewhere not in your code):

'.$string_of_item_names.'
'.$string_of_item_amounts.'

Hi HartleySan

 

Yep, I've just spotted that typo too, should be:

session_id($cid);

the view_cart.php with the added paypal button looks like this - which is not linking to the checkout.php after the customer presses the buy button:

		echo "\t<tr>
		<td align=\"left\">{$row['artist']}</td>
		<td align=\"left\">{$row['print_name']}</td>
		<td align=\"right\">£{$_SESSION['cart'][$row['print_id']]['price']}</td>
		<td align=\"center\"><input type=\"text\" size=\"3\" name=\"qty[{$row['print_id']}]\" value=\"{$_SESSION['cart'][$row['print_id']]['quantity']}\" /></td>
		<td align=\"right\">£" . number_format ($subtotal, 2) . "</td>
		</tr>\n";
		 $string_of_item_names = $string_of_item_names.' <input type="hidden" name="item_name_'.$count.'" Value="'.$row['print_name'].'" >'; # build item name string of all items in the basket
  $string_of_item_amounts = $string_of_item_amounts.' <input type="hidden" name="amount_'.$count.'" Value="'. number_format ($subtotal, 2).'" >'; # build string of prices for items in basket
  # use count as a reference to match names with prices in paypal
  $count++;
	
	} // End of the WHILE loop.

	mysqli_close($con); // Close the database connection.

if ($_SESSION['userid']>0)	$checkout_button = ('<form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">

    <!-- Identify your business so that you can collect the payments.

</form>');
else 
	$checkout_button = '<a href="login.php">You must be logged in to purchase or please sign up.</a>';
	// Print the total, close the table, and the form:
	echo '<tr>
		<td colspan="4" align="right"><b>Total:      </b></td>
		<td align="right">£' . number_format ($total, 2) . '</td>
	</tr>
	</table>

	</form><p align="center">Enter a quantity of 0 to remove an item.

.... you see these parts in the script; they are meant to bring the user back to checkout.php after they press the pay button.

<br /><br />'.$checkout_button.'</p>';

and this part:

<input type="hidden" name="notify_url" Value="http://www.wolfcut.co.uk/checkout.php" />

I was trying this; to link the checkout button;  which didn't work either:

<br /><br /><a href="checkout.php"'.$checkout_button.'</a></p>';
