Hi

I am using 2 payment methods (paypal and check)

In the order notification email i would like to include an addtional check information section for customers paying by check. This should not be seen for paypal customers.

Can you confirm how i do this?

thank you

Hi,

That should already be the case by default.
The text you add in the "information" setting of the check payment method is automatically added to the email sent when the order is created.
Now maybe you're talking about another email ? If so which one ? The "order notification" one which is sent when you click on the "email" button on the backend ? Or the "order status notification" which is sent automatically when PayPal confirms the order, or when you change yourself the status of the order in the backend and activate the notification to the customer ?

Hi

Apologies i should have been clearer - it is the order status notification where i would like to include the additional check information section for customers paying by check. This should not be seen for paypal customers.

Is it also possible that if paying by check the order status notification is bcc'd to a different person than the paypal order status notification?

thank you

Hi,

1. Then you want to take the code which does that from the preload of the order creation notification and paste it at the same place in the order status notification via the menu System>Emails:

	ob_start();
	if(in_array($data->order_payment_method, array('banktransfer', 'check', 'purchaseorder'))) {
		$amount = $currencyHelper->format($data->cart->full_total->prices[0]->price_value_with_tax, $data->cart->order_currency_id);
		$paymentClass = hikashop_get('class.payment');
		$payment = $paymentClass->get($data->order_payment_id);
		$information = $payment->payment_params->information;
		if(preg_match('#^[a-z0-9_]*$#i',$information)){
			$information = JText::_($information);
		}
		if($data->order_payment_method=='banktransfer'){
			echo '<p>' . JText::sprintf('PLEASE_TRANSFERT_MONEY',$amount).'<br/>'.$information.'<br/>'.JText::sprintf('INCLUDE_ORDER_NUMBER_TO_TRANSFER',$data->order_number) . '</p>';
		}elseif($data->order_payment_method=='check'){
			echo '<p>' . JText::sprintf('PLEASE_SEND_CHECK',$amount).'<br/>'.$information.'<br/>'.JText::sprintf('INCLUDE_ORDER_NUMBER_TO_CHECK',$data->order_number) . '</p>';
		}elseif($data->order_payment_method=='purchaseorder'){
			echo '<p>' . JText::sprintf('PLEASE_SEND_PURCHASEORDER',$amount).'<br/>'.$information.'<br/>'.JText::sprintf('INCLUDE_ORDER_NUMBER_TO_PURCHASEORDER',$data->order_number) . '</p>';
		}
	}

	$content = ob_get_clean();
	$vars['ORDER_SUMMARY'] .= $content;

2. Setting the bcc dynamically based on the payment method is also possible with custom code in the preload of the email.
Here is a thread about that:
www.hikashop.com/forum/4-how-to/872622-a...firmation-email.html
But it's up to you to do it or have a developer work on it for you.

thank you

I have successfully edited the order_status _notification email

but ....

Only customers who pay via paypal are receiving it - those paying by check are not. For internaI processing reasons we have set the check payment method to automatically approve and and the status is therefore set to confirmed but i would still expect the order_status_notification to send to the customer

If the customer pays via paypal they receive the order_status _notification email

what do i need to change to achieve this?

thank you

Hi

Refernece part -

2. Setting the bcc dynamically based on the payment method is also possible with custom code in the preload of the email.
Here is a thread about that:
www.hikashop.com/forum/4-how-to/872622-a...firmation-email.html


Can you confirm where i associate the bcc mail address with the payment method. eg the bcc address for check payment is different to the bcc address for paypal. There is not a setting on the payment method to define the bcc address?

thank you

Hi,

1.
Did you activate the "Order status notification" setting of your check payment method ?
If not, then the order is directly created as confirmed and thus only the order creation notification email is sent.

2.
There is no setting for that. It can only be done with adding PHP code to the preload of the email as explained in my previous message.

Hi,

1.
Mm, I had a look at the code of the plugin and it's correct. I've also done a test on my end and it worked fine.
Can you provide a screenshot of the settings of your payment method ?

2. I don't see what else I could give as pointers besides writing and testing the code myself. But that will require some time as I'm not sure of the code here. Unfotunately, coding services is outside of the user support we're supposed to provide as part of the support included. Please contact our partners for help on custom development:

Hi,

I see what's the issue.
Change the line:
$this->modifyOrder($order->order_id, $method->payment_params->order_status, @$method->payment_params->status_notif_email, false);
to:
$this->modifyOrder($order->order_id, $method->payment_params->order_status, (bool)@$method->payment_params->status_notif_email, false);
in the file plugins/hikashoppayment/check/check.php and that should help.

Hi

That part now works - the status notification email is sent to the customer if you pay by check - thank you

But the additional check information section for customers paying by check is not displaying in the order status notification email . (Note this check information should not be seen for paypal customers.)

I had added in the code as you previously suggested and the preview version of the email implies it is there but it is not visible in the email i receive

Are you able to check this part for me?

thank you
Caroline

Hi,

That's not a bug, that's done on purpose.
The order status of an order determines if the order has been paid or not.
When the order status of an order is "confirmed", it means that the order has already been paid (based on the default configuration of the order statuses in the menu System>Order statuses).
So of course, the payment method information text (which contains information to allow the customer to pay the order) is not displayed in the order status notification.
The code I gave in www.hikashop.com/forum/payment-methods/8...on-email.html#292651 is only taken from the order creation notification preload. You need to adapt it to the code of the preload of the order status notification.
Please understand that this is custom development work, not user support. I've already given all the necessary information for a developer to do that. If you need someone to help you with that, please contact our partners:
