Need option to have no entry created until PayPal is complete

  1. I've read this post ( and understand how you have set things up. Also understand I can sort my entries sheet into Processing and Approved.

    But with my previous system (DT Register in Joomla), no record was created at all unless PayPal approval came back. I would really prefer that as an option here, so as to save a lot of double checking to be sure people have paid.

    That, and a built-in method to prevent double-submits, creating double records.

  2. As you know, the way it currently works is that the entry is created regardless of payment status, then the payment status is updated when payment is complete. We'll leave this as a feature request so we can refer to it in the future.

    You can use this code to disable the submit button after the first submit, which may cut down on duplicate entries.

    That code goes in your theme's functions.php
