I suppose if a problem occurs with vb
during a payment process, there isn't much to loose as the user can just try again. The PhotoPost user, however, just spent 25 minutes putting together a top notch ad, proceeded to "checkout", the payment process gets jammed, and voila, ad stuck with the admin to decide what to do with it. The user sees it in his ad list, but when he tries to edit it, he is told it is awaiting payment, yet he has no way to pay for it. If I was that user, I'd be irritated at best. It seems that if the system can tell you that it is awaiting payment, that it could just as easily take you to the payment screen so you can try again, yes? no? All wet?
Thanks for giving it some thought!
