i want to create a quote request that is emailed for my project rather than run through the payment process. Bare with me as this is my first time using the ecommerce module. (version 0.70).

in it's current state email just returns the word 'order' in the email rather than that ordered items or quantities. How can I get this data saved in the database properly and emailed? Any help much appreciated, Thanks.

these are my functions in the CartPage.php

function SubmitEnquiry($data, $form) {

$order = ShoppingCart::save_current_order();


//$Enquiry = new Enquiry();

$email = new Email;
$email->to = '';
$email->from = '';
$email->subject = 'New Enquiry';
$email->body = $order.'<br />'.$form->forTemplate();


// Redirect to a page thanking people for registering


function Order() {
if($orderID = Director::urlParam('Action')) return DataObject::get_by_id('Order', $orderID);
else return ShoppingCart::current_order();
