I am Not sure about sales_order_place_after event.

But checkout_submit_all_after is always fire for multi shipping checkout .

But there are some logic change at parameters default checkout onepage and multi shipping checkout's checkout_submit_all_after event.

multi shipping checkout

For multi shipping checkout's ,you goto two parameters at observer.

First one is Orderids of your checkout by $observer->getEvent()->getOrders()

Second,one is quote object of your checkout by $observer->getEvent()->getQuote()


Mage::dispatchEvent('checkout_submit_all_after', array('orders' => $orders, 'quote' => $this->getQuote()));

Default onepage checkout

Getting 3 parameters:

  • Order object of current place order : by $observer->getEvent()->getOrder()

  • Quote object of current place order : by $observer->getEvent()->getQuote()

  • recurring profilesobject of current place order by $observer->getEvent()->getRecurringProfiles()

See at:

Mage::dispatchEvent( 'checkout_submit_all_after', array('order' => $order, 'quote' => $this->getQuote(), 'recurring_profiles' => $profiles) );

So there are some logical changes are need at your observer
