Feature request: Send admin notification BEFORE and after payment is received.

  1. carbgf

    You have a checkbox for: "Send admin notification only when payment is received". I check this because, after payment is received, the user gets redirected to a download page to download the item she purchased.

    I would like to get an additional notification: "Also send admin notification after form is filled in" i.e. before payment is received . This will tell me how many users got as far as filling in the purchase form, but failed to complete the PayPal payment. This will be very useful - it will also tell me if my PayPal payment system has failed for any reason.

    Can this be done?

  2. I would like this feature as well. Any idea when we could get this logic in place?

  3. I think you could probably do this now by using a function hooked to gform_after_submission - once the entry is created and the normal notifications are sent (in this case, none are sent yet based on your condition) you could write a quick wp_mail function to just say that someone had started the checkout process.

    You could also use Google Analytics to see where they are dropping out of the process.
