Could you please tell me if this is behavior you would expect? I am using the free version of Pay for Post and WooCommerce. I put a link to the protected item (a webpage) in the purchase notes for the item.
1. User purchases a Pay for Post product using an iPad and Safari and Paypal
2. Because the payment approval to Paypal has a delay, the purchase notes generated right after the sale, during the browser session, do not show the product link. (This is a known WooCommerce behavior – WooCommerce checks to make sure the order has been paid for and is complete before outputting the purchase note.)
3. User goes to their Gmail app to look at their purchase receipt email and clicks on the product link
4. User is asked which browser to use to open the link, selects Safari
5. A Safari tab opens, User is sent to the “Restricted Content” page and told they don’t have access to the content they just purchased and need to log in.
Is this what you would expect to happen, and if so — is there a way around this? If the person logs in, and if they go to My Account>Orders and access the order, they can use the link found in the purchase notes to successfully access the protected webpage. It’s very confusing for them to make the purchase in their browser, go to the Gmail app for the link, go back to their browser, be told they don’t have access, then have to log in again and navigate to their Orders history to access the link. Basically it seems like iPad users will never be able to use the purchase notes link in their email receipt to access their content. Is that accurate?
Thanks for your help and insight.
