    I would like to be able to on order being placed intercept this function run some logic then have the order proceed as normal. I am trying the same logic I used to extend the registration form however I can not get that logic to work for the checkout process.

    Has anyone done this or have any insights into getting this done?

    Hello Rick,

     I hope today finds you well.

    If you want complete control over the checkout process I'd urge you to take a look at our open source one-page-checkout example. The blog post can be found here. And source is on Git Hub.

    Additionally you can hook into the pre-process order event. Our documentation for this is here. It fires before the order is placed. In short it's like this:

    public class Global : System.Web.HttpApplication
        protected void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
            Bootstrapper.Initialized += new EventHandler<Telerik.Sitefinity.Data.ExecutedEventArgs>(Bootstrapper_Initialized);
        private void Bootstrapper_Initialized(object sender, Telerik.Sitefinity.Data.ExecutedEventArgs e)
            if (e.CommandName == "Bootstrapped")
                EcommerceEvents.PreProcessOrder += new EcommerceEvents.OnPreProcessOrder(EcommerceEvents_PreProcessOrder);
        private OrderValidator EcommerceEvents_PreProcessOrder(Guid cartOrderId, CheckoutState checkoutState, Customer customer)
            OrderValidator validator = new OrderValidator();
            validator.IsOrderValid = true;
            validator.StatusMessage = "Order is valid";
            return validator;

    The documentation also includes information on all of our event methods.

    I hope this helps. Greetings,
