I'm trying to figure out how send an email confirmation of an E-Junkie order to a specific email address (for my client).
This email can't be the PayPal email address. Even though those are perfect and have all the info we would need (name, address, items, total). This email address just needs to get order confirmations and not all the other PayPal emails, like the ones you get when you make withdrawals.
This email can't be the E-Junkie email address, either. I know I already get order confirmation emails to this address, but they just look like big "variable dumps" and my client was confused by it.
I also played with generating those "Thank You" emails that E-Junkie lets to attach to individual products. Those are pretty nice because you can put variables inside them (like name, address, etc) and then have them sent to you as well as your customers. I figured I could do this and then just auto-forward them to the email address through my own email client. This didn't pan out just because you get one of these for each individual product ordered, not the entire order, which was also confusing to the client.
Then I tried messing with PayPal IPN and trying to have a script on my server that would blast out an email to the client email address when a successful order was placed. This is just an extremely complicated solution to a simple problem and honestly I didn't have very much success getting it to actually work.
Has anyone else need to do this?
It just seems like it should be a pretty simple thing to do, just getting order emails to go to an email address.
