Receipt Date Formatting

Receipts still use the US date format after I have changed my site to a different locale. 

Dates/Times are stored in the database in the locale the DB is set to use. Even if the front-end is set to a new locale, if the DB is still on en-US, the receipts will be in US format. 

In your notification.receipt.xml.config file, find this line: 

<xsl:value-of select="OrderDate" />

...and change it to: 

<xsl:value-of select="aspdnsf:FormatDate(OrderDate,'en-US','dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm:ss:tt')" /> 

There is information on different date/time formats at http://authors.aspalliance.com/aspxtreme/sys/demos/datetimeformats.aspx
