    Hi there,

    The date of purchase is a purchase property – you can access it the same as any other purchase property, like purchase ID.

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    I’m using the following to show the order/purchase date

    <?php echo ECSE_purchase::get_the_purchase_prop('date') ?>

    However when testing via the back-end I’m seeing the following being generated

    Order Date : 1355937181

    The above looks like random numbers and not dates is there a way to fix this

    Hi,

    That number looks like a Unix timestamp. If you’re not familiar with the timestamp standard for storing date information, have a look here:

    You should be able to display the date in whatever format you want.

    Thanks I got it done

    For those who will be looking to include the order/purchase date use the following:

    <?php echo $formated_datetime = DATE('d-M-Y, g:i:a',ECSE_purchase::get_the_purchase_prop('date'));?>

    hm I get a fatel error when I use that code above…

    Fatal Error: Class ‘ECSE_purchase’ not found in /home/directory/directory/wpsc-email_style.php on line 3

    What am I doing wrong?

    The code is exactly as above

    It sounds like the plugin’s classes haven’t loaded by the time you’re making the call. What file are you putting the code in?

    The code in my wpsc-email_style.php is:

    <html><body>
    <h2 style="color:#016E0F"><?php echo ecse_get_email_subject(); ?></h2>
    <?php echo $formated_datetime = DATE('d-M-Y, g:i:a',ECSE_purchase::get_the_purchase_prop('date'));?>
    <?php echo ecse_get_email_content(); ?>
    </body></html>

    Ah, that clarifies things.

    wpsc-email_style.php is your all-purpose email wrapper, where you can put a branding container, social links, etc, that apply not only to purchase receipts but also to blog subscriptions, password resets… So you can’t use purchase-specific code in that file.

    Instead, if you’re templating content you should be using the content template for purchase receipts.

    Does that make sense?
