Thank you for you quick response, I really appreciate that.
I will test further to get past the “Thought” experiment point of failure, but it would appear that this is an architectural design decision made by the creators of WP eStore for which real life run-time has proven not to be an issue. I will test further and let you folks know. Given the low number of anticipated concurrent orders for my system, it will most likely be a “LOTTERY” scenario for it to be an actual problem.
I see the trade-off in the WP eStore implementation to not prevent an order from completing just because someone else is sleeping on their keyboard or left their shopping cart in an open state but forgot. Makes sense. A fair design decision. As long is everyone is aware of the timing black hole that it presents.
