Magento and PayPal payment doesn’t set Delivery Address

Apr 13, 2011

I came across this minor problem when a client running a Magento website wanted to enable the paypal checkout. Once I enabled paypal express checkout and started to run through some test orders the custom module I had written to export their orders ready for their warehouse/dispatch system had a few problems. The problem is that PayPal doesn’t use the same naming for its addresses as Magento. In Magento the customer is asked for billing and delivery addresses and where they opt to use the same address the details are simply repeated.

Magento 1.4.2 Newsletter Bug

Feb 3, 2011

Magento newsletters templates don’t work. When you Queue the newsletter the body of the email isn’t brought through from the template. To fix this you need to copy the following your file into your local code and make a small change. Copy… /app/code/local/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Newsletter/Queue/Edit To… /app/code/local/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Newsletter/Queue/Edit And then change the code that sets the value of the editor field for the newsletter message to get the template text and not the template text preprocessed.
