  1. Thanks a million for the reply! To answer your question, what we figure would cause someone to not pay for a winning bid is when they literally wanted to slow the non-prof down. Giving the item to the next highest bid isn't a punishment for them as they don't care. As for your other options, they are fantastic. From a programmers perspective they seem like the way to go, but for the UX perspective maybe not so much. Is a customer going to enter their credit details a second time to increase a max bid 10 bucks? Maybe, maybe not? Our major takeaway from your reply is that awarding t
  2. Is not an option. There, now that I have your attention, I have an interesting problem. We are a portal for non profits. We have no leverage over what payment gateway a non profit uses. We need to token-ize credit card details, regardless of the gateway. Whether a gateway supports this process , even without first having a successful transaction seems to be a flip of the coin. For example, paypal pro and stripe will return a token during the checkout process, but you have to go through that process, with a dollar amount. Authorize.net and transnational allow you to "vault" the
  3. We want to help non profits run auctions, sometimes these non profits use paypal. We won't know a final price until the auction is over so we cannot just authorize a payment of $x. With gateways like authorize.net, you can submit billing details and get a token back. Than, when ever the customer checks out you just submit that token instead of credit card details. I need to do the same process with paypal and per the documentation it is unclear if this is even an option. Unfortunately getting these organizations to leave paypal is generally not an option. I know you can authorize a
  4. Ok, I apologize a million times. I'd delete this post completely if I could figure out how. I am normally a laravel developer and most of our projects are laravel, except this one which is cakephp. Regardless, I realize now that when I need to look into is event listeners. I should be able to find more targeted documentation on this and maybe solve my own problem. Thanks anyways!
  5. Oh my gosh!! I'm so sorry. This is a cakePhp project. Not a laravel project. Wishful thinking...
  6. I think i may have accidentally stumbled on a clue. https://laracasts.com/discuss/channels/eloquent/listen-to-any-saveupdatecreate-event-for-any-model
  7. Hi! I'd like to create a function in an eloquent model that gets called whenever create() or save() is called on that model. This function updates an "updated_at" time stamp in a parent table. I don't even know what to search for in google that will lead me to a tutorial, or documentation explaining this. For example: I have 2 tables, Conferences (has "updated_at" timestamp field) and Maps (When ever a new map is saved, or existing updated I want to update the timestamp field "updated_at" in the Conferences table). I know I could create a class with a function that does this and
  8. Maybe a year ago php freaks shut down? I cried! phpFreaks was my go to when I was learning php! You guys and gals had been with me from the start! phpFreaks is back and today will be a good day!
