Support » Plugin: WordPress Simple PayPal Shopping Cart » Verification email sent from wordpress@

  • Resolved Randy Grothues


    A customer who purchased an item from our website contacted us with questions. There were two problems. 1) the FROM address was ‘wordpress@’, which is not a working address. Luckily we monitor using a catchall program, so when he responded to ‘wordpress@’ we caught it. 2) For some reason the items he had purchased weren’t listed, which is why he had contacted us. We had to check paypal to verify his order. Here is the quoted text from this customers reply to the purchase confirmation email:

    Is there a way to configure the FROM address, and is there a reason why this customer didn’t receive his order information?

  • I failed to mention that the customer was responding to an email which appears to have been autogenerated by WP Simple Paypal Shopping Cart.

    I’m assuming the problem started in version 3.8:

    version 3.8

    Added a new orders menu that will show all the orders that you are receiving.
    Added an automatic order confirmation notification email feature. Your buyer will receive an email from this plugin after the sale.

    This confirmation email is being sent from ‘wordpress@’ and I don’t see any way to change it.

    I want to turn off the notification email, it is causing me problems. How can I do this?

    We are going to introduce an option in the plugin to configure these emails and also the ability to turn it off. It will come in the next release (hopefully withing a few days).

    In the meantime, you can use the following plugin to configure the from email address of your outgoing emails from the site:

    WordPress Plugin – Change WP eMail From Details

    With respect to the automatic email notification, how can this be turned off? PayPal’s notification to the customer is sufficient without a second confusing notification, I believe. I noticed several option settings in the wp_shopping_cart_settings.php file, but these are not brought out to the plugin settings. It would have been nice if your wordpress-plugin-change-wp-email-from-details-1883 would have included an option to disable the automatic email feature. I am using Version v3.8.6 of the plugin.

    Thanks for all of your plugin support.

    Pardon me. There is a check box for sending out an email in the email settings tab. Great job on this simple cart.
