    Well, you are probably going to want to work in includes/classes/order.php is you want to mess around with the data that is sent to the ORDERS table.

    But if you gave more information about what you are actually trying to do then you could get more specific help.

    No I still don't see why you would want to fill your database up with orders that are never paid for because the potential customer has no intention of actually placing or confirming an order.
    Lots of browser put "stuff" in their carts and may even go to paypal but they have NO intention of actually completing an order.

    If you are having problems with orders being completed at paypal and no record in your database then that is a different problem that has been discussed before and there are threads that fix that problem.

    Otherwise if you want to harass your customers over abandoned orders then the mod I mentioned in the "other" thread will do the job.

    Better to use the Express Checkout module instead, since it doesn't rely on after-purchase-notification to tell your store about orders. They are recorded immediately.
    I want to confirm when zencat do the insert db job,before or after paypal.com? if after, when internet is block, the db has no order record ,then how to know customer had paid ,and had buy what things?

    Um ... so ... are you ACTUALLY USING Express Checkout?

    Or are you going contrary to the advice given, and using IPN/WebsitePaymentsStandard instead?

    We can't help you if we don't know what you're really trying to do. And when you do something other than what we recommend, it's very frustrating to bother offering additional help.
