Timing of booking – backend

Currently when someone books into an event from the front-end the booking data is created in the back-end at that point in time they enter the details and click confirm – then it takes them to the payment page. Is there a way to edit the code so that the booking details are not created/stored in the back-end until the final payment page (invoice or credit-card selection) has been processed?

Hi there,

No, its not possible to delay the save until the registration has been finalized.

EE creates the registration, transaction and other related objects early on and then updates them as each step progresses, there are multiple reasons for this design choice but one is to allow you to capture details from registrants that don’t complete and contact them to see if they need assistance.

May I ask why you want the data unsaved until the end?
