Problem:

WPEC Purchase Report

I’ve just started using WP-eCommerce (WPEC) 3.8.7.6.2 on a new site thats under construction. It appears that the layout of the Purchase Report email that WPEC generates and sends to the website administrator has changed from that of earlier versions. In WPEC it seems that every time something is changed there’s an improvement in one area but something else goes backwards.

On the plus side, the order number has been moved to the top of the email. On the minus side, they’ve removed the headings seperating the billing and shipping details and removed the spacing that made it easy to read. Within the billing details a line ‘Delivery State:…’ has been added – I’m really not sure what purpoose/point that has.

Hopefully GetShopped / Instinct will look into sorting this out a later release.

Here is comparison of the WPEC Purchase Reprt emails that version 3.8.7.6.2 generates vs 3.7 (I’ve had to edit that section for privacy reasons as it came off a live site).
