Invoices Should Be Marked As Paid

Hi,

We’re in the process of testing EE with PayPal Express using PP Sandbox accounts.

When a transaction completes, the invoice shows the message

Please send this invoice with payment attached to the address above, or use the payment link below. Payment must be received within 48 hours of event date.

Invoice Should Be Marked As Paid

This should be marked as paid once payment is made via PayPal.

How can we change that?

Thanks

Phil

Hi Phil,

Currently, that text is pulled directly from the Invoice payment method instructions:

Event Espresso -> Payment methods -> Invoice -> Instructions

There is no check on the transaction status when displaying the text so it can not change to show something different based on the status, for that you would need your own custom shortcode that does pretty much the same steps as the current shortcode but also pulls in the transaction object and checks it’s status.

Hi Tony,

Thanks. What’s the current shortcode? Where can we see the existing code to try to write a new one?

Thanks

Phil

What’s the current shortcode?

[INVOICE_PAYMENT_INSTRUCTIONS] is the current shortcode

You can see that in Event Espresso -> Messages -> Default messages templates -> Invoice

Where can we see the existing code to try to write a new one?

See here: https://github.com/eventespresso/event-espresso-core/blob/master/core/libraries/shortcodes/EE_Transaction_Shortcodes.lib.php#L661-L666

Note, please do not edit EE’s own core files, you can add your own shortcodes via hooks, editing any of EE’s file prevents us from providing support and will be lost each time EE updates (same as any other WP plugin).

I’ve previously posted examples of how to add your own message shortcodes here:

https://gist.github.com/Pebblo/dc011b43b461064a831d

The library your checking for would be EE_Transaction_Shortcodes

Here’s an example of how to add a shortcode specifically to the EE_Transaction_Shortcodes library which also shows you how you can get the EE_Transaction object:

Thanks Tony. Will have a read through all that later today.

Thanks
