03 March 2017 - 19:27

Hi All..


Attached is a patch that makes the PayPal App v5.010 compatible to v2.3.4 BS. It would be great if this could be tested and feedback provided so it can be pushed out in the online update channel.


The PayPal App should be first updated to v5.010, then the contents of the zip package should be copied to your catalog/ directory, overwriting 9 files.

We wish everyone a great holiday season and a fantastic start in 2017!


Special thanks to the team, our community members, and our partners - thank you for your continued support in not only helping us, but also continuing to welcoming and helping new store owners joining the community.


Our highlights during 2016 include the launch of our new Live Sites website, our new German website, and the development of a new osCommerce Online Merchant v2.4 Joli release series currently in beta.


The upcoming v2.4.3 version will include a tool that inspects the database schema to display the differences with the installed database structure compared to what is expected from the core database structure of the release. This plays an integral role in supporting upgrades and migrations from our earlier v2.3 release series, and also supporting database schema changes Apps need to perform.


Our awesome community members of the month for 2016 are:

osCommerce Online Merchant v2.4.0 Joli Beta

11 November 2016 - 21:18

We're extremely proud to announce the next osCommerce Online Merchant release series is rolling out now starting with the beta release of v2.4.0 Joli! This is a developers release that has a rapid weekly release schedule to finalize the framework API and to build on to the v2.x series with quality production ready releases.


v2.4.0 Joli Beta includes the community led effort by Gary Burton to modernize the frontend with a responsive Bootstrap template called Sail. This not only aims to improve the customer experience on the site frontend to encourage and improve sales, but also on the site backend with a more user intuitive interface to work with the business side of sales.


The OSC\OM framework that was introduced in the v3.0 developer series has been backported and invites developers to start migrating their add-ons to the new self-contained App infrastructure that not only allows for more secure and easier installations of third-party software, but also online installations and updates through the Administration Dashboard (coming in a later beta release). This involves a tight integration into our new App Marketplace that will be launched in the near future.


v2.4.0 will be the only public release of the v2.4 beta series - all weekly updates during the beta phase will be delivered through the online update feature to get the online update feature tested on as many server configurations as possible.


There are still a lot of changes planned during the beta phase that will break the framework API and is the reason for the beta release series. All changes between releases will be documented to keep developers up-to-date and to help them finalize their Apps for the production ready release.


We're committed to Open Source and are continuing our goal of moving from the GPL license to the MIT license. This is the first release in the v2.x series to be completely licensed under the MIT license.

The PayPal for osCommerce Online Merchant App is bundled with this release. The Braintree for osCommerce Online Merchant App can be downloaded separately at:




It will be possible to install and upgrade Apps directly in the Administration Dashboard in an upcoming beta release.
