oscommerce’s paypal module problem with downloads

I struggled a lapse of time today because my new customer’s store was delivering downloadable products for pending orders, using the standard_ipn module made for oscommerce rc1.

The whole problem is that the original Paypal_ipn module for oscommerce (since version 2.2 MS2 as far as I could track) DOES NOT  have an option to changes statuses when an order was approved (completed).

It simply have two statuses: Preparing (before the customer went to the Paypal gateway) and Acknowledged (after the customer returned from the gateway). So, this customer’s module was set to change the order’s status to “download available” when the module was just saying “Acknowledged”.

The fix: add a new setting to the module and edit the file ext/modules/payment/paypal/standard_ipn.php to account this new order status.

(if you don’t know what I mean, hire a good programmer to do it for you or contact me and I can help you for a small fee.)
