  2. I haven't but I am probably going to be looking into something similar in the near future.
  3. Hi there. I am wondering if there is a module for recurring payments for subscriptions, restricted areas etc. There looks like there is a module from 2008 for PayPal recurring payments, but I definitely don't want to go that far back because of the debugging challenge and because I am concerned it will be obsolete from the PayPal standpoint. Outside of the world of completed contributions, I am wondering if any others have implemented a system for monthly subscriptions controlling access to certain content pages within the oscommerce framework and how it was accomplished. Thanks!

  10. JcM Manufacturers QR code V1.0 Phoenix This is a simple add-on it will allow you to Place a Manufacturers QR code image on each product page. It requires NO core changes so just copy over the files provided. Once it’s installed simply go to admin and install and turn on. You can change the styling in admin it uses stock BS Class’s. You can also select the placing of the text within the container it’s added to. That’s it enjoy. It has only been tested on Phoenix 1.0.3.0 only. Can be seen working on this custom test site

    Do you still get double-processing with the app? I've not seen it in my clients but lots with the previous modules, so I believe it's better now at least if not eliminated. Yes, a different status for paypal cheques would be a good thing. My stock interfaces have to interrogate the order history to find out whether the payment has cleared or not. I don't get the obsession with consecutive order ids (which you can never achieve totally anyway). If you want to track sales consecutively, why not allocate a consecutive sale/purchase/invoice number when an order is paid? Much simpler and the way that many other systems work. This is an issue right across osc and not confined to the paypal module.

    What is the current version? (I need to upgrade)

    The latest version is the Phoenix version. You can download it from here. Be sure to scroll down to that link. You can't really update an RC2 version to Phoenix. While it is possible, it would be a mess (code-wise), require many more edits than with starting over and you would probably still have security issues. The best option is to install Phoenix, convert your RC2 database to work with it, install whatever addons you want and change the appearance to your liking.

    Thankyou. I am still clueless to the cut and paste error in Notepad++, I also used the compare in it and, sent to notepad for clear txt. Still the attachment has fixed this for me. And allowed me to move on with the site. So I did this, hope you do not mind I donated to Burt. Thankyou again Raiwa.
  15. I have Version: V2.2 RC2A ( V2.2 RC2a) , which was installed by a vendor who is no longer in business. What is the current version and the date it was released so that I can hire someone to update. Thanks, David

    forgot password implementation?

    I only get complaints only from some of the customers, not all of them. I tested on my own personal email and it works without any problems.

    HoneyPot Captcha

    At the end.............. You go figure it all have to do with it. That you are doing THAT ( so what you do). There is much room open for many others to tackle that. To goal is to prevent. To monitor ( what means storing form $_POSTS................ mwaaaaaaaaaaa , i think that is a most unwanted subject of the cause). At the end............ if it is HoneyPot, a GUARDIAN SYSTEM, or google reCaptchaV2 or google reCaptchaV3 ( you tried v3?). osCommerce users simply do not like to be spammed. If put that first and can agree on that. That would might be a step forward for the whole community.

    @Supertex I wanted to stay further silent in this thread but I believe you are right .. It seems like a differnece between coding and real-life running a shop. All the examples you give we had to "code" around ... - Stock-deduction : we do extra checks - Customers clicking back and forth betwen payment-processing and checkout: we check order_id and status so there is not a new order number - Payment statusses for non confirmed Payment / and or abandoned payment: we do extra checks So - improvements can surely can be made!
  21. Great contribution to OSC! thank you!!!

    My comments aren't regarding policy...but rather what I see in the code. Now, I may be a little fuzzy, but I do know that special accommodations with regard to the timing of order creation during the checkout process are altogether different for PayPal. There are vast sections of code that are duplicated and run 'a step sooner' just for PayPal. I've not experienced much in the way of payment modules, but that much I know for certain. I've installed (and used) authorize.net, PayPal, and the 'wire transfer' module. Wire transfer creates the order at completion, and the order is posted as "awaiting payment" in the admin list. Authorize.net does NOT create an order number. In their interface...there is only an amount...no correlating order. However, when you return to the store, you'll find an order number. When I dug deeper to see why, it was revealed just how simple the module is (there was no order number being sent because it didn't exist yet), and by comparison, just how complex the PayPal module is. But again...don't take my word for gospel here. @Harald Ponce de Leon is the guy that can answer these questions without conjecture. My main point is to address the stated concerns about why order numbers were changing - and it's because the customer is altering their cart AFTER having chosen PayPal as the payment method. Also...there will be a number of customers that don't ever actually place the order...and when they do that, that order number will be 'occupied' indefinitely...the site will skip over it and continue on generating new order numbers from there. The solve for me was simple: create an order status just for these "temporary" orders, and have your orders.php query exclude that status from displaying normally. You can always specify from the drop-down if you need to view them. There are other issues that you may find more problematic with the PayPal app...like inventory counts being off, for example, because there are 2 opportunities for the site/code to 'complete' the order - one when the customer returns to the site from PayPal, and again when the IPN lands on the site. I find that both MUST be used, because sometimes a customer will click 'pay' at paypal, but will close the browser before they ever return to the site. Can't really rely only on the IPN either, because there are times - fairly often - when the IPN is delayed. On occasion, it's been hours late showing up. And of course in this case, the customer returns to find an 'unpaid' order. Well, when both are used, it just so happens that they CAN land close enough to each other that BOTH try to complete the order (stock decrement, etc.). This happens pretty often. And the only tell-tale sign that you have, is that the site will have sent 2 order confirmation emails, which you can see in the status updates for the order in your store ("customer emailed - green checkmark"). This is a long thread, but go through and read up on it. I've posted numerous times in numerous threads about this...provided images of the backend, database content screenshots. And here's another kind of major issue with PayPal. OSC isn't set up to distinguish between payment statuses as returned by PayPal. Just because a customer completes the payment, doesn't mean that PayPal has approved the payment. I've seen it return 'Pending' payments...not pending order status....pending PAYMENT status. The site can't tell the difference. It processes the order just like PayPal approved the transaction. I've posted numerous details about this too. You can potentially ship what you think is a paid order, only to find out days later that the payment actually was never approved...good luck getting your product back. And now that they are no longer refunding fees ...you as the business owner will get stuck with paying fees based on what the original transaction amount was...not the total after you issue a partial refund. Maybe not a big deal if your average sale is $100, but wait till you have to refund $1500 of a $2000 sale...that'll get your attention. We're moving away from PayPal as fast as my fingers can type. In other news...the Square module seems to be working very nicely...

    Ok - but that sounds unnecessarily complicated - and btw checkout_process is too late as previously discussed.

    @BrockleyJohn Thanks! I was kind of jumping in without reading all posts ... My bad 😉 But I didn't mean / say to create the whole ORDER but only the Order Number (order_id) on checkout_payment.

    @azpro He's agreeing (mostly), just not with the reason for creating the order on checkout_payment. Actually in the current system the order gets created when checkout_payment is confirmed, at the top of checkout_confirmation, and if you go back to checkout_payment the order gets deleted again. Which is where this whole discussion started...

    Offcourse - that's why We do - And I can tell you it has saved us a significant number of phonecalls - AND clicking between Payment provider back to Checkout. It seems people are confused if on the payment-page of for example a bank there is no direct referall to the order (in this case the order number). In fact - if I do online purchases myself I am reluctant if it only gives a general desciption like "Purchase online at ZZZZ-shop" at Payment Porcessor / bank.

    can't login in shop admin

    If the problem is the password in the administrators table, just delete the whole row. Note that sometimes the problem is the htpasswd. If that's it, move out the .htaccess file and .htpasswd_oscommerce file from the admin directory and recreate them again afterward.
