  1. Hi Satish, I hope you don't mind me asking this question. In trying to get PayPal Standard (with IPN) working I have seen multiple conflicting recommendations of what URL's are needed on the PayPal Auto Return and IPN URL's. The three files I have seen mentioned are: catalog/checkout_success.php catalog/checkout_process.php /catalog/ext/modules/payment/paypal/standard_ipn.php I trust your opinion over all the conflicting documentation and forum posts. Which URL goes in the Instant Payment Notification (IPN)? Which URL goes in Auto Return for Website Payments? Thanks in Advance, Tom

    PayPal URL Settings - Question for Satish?

    Thanks Satish, Which of the following goes in the Auto Return for Website Payments? catalog/checkout_success.php catalog/checkout_process.php I have seen both stated in posts and also have seen posts saying that previous posters were wrong in recommending one or the other. Thanks again Tom

    Missing ipn.php

    I am trying to install paypal_standard_1_0. The installation tips thread http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/331996-how-to-setup-paypal-website-payments-standard/page__hl__paypal+logo__st__20 refers to 12. Set the return URL to http://<your website>/catalog/ipn.php. I do not have that ipn.php file in my catalog and it is not in the paypal_standard_1_0 addon module that I downloaded. I am running an old version (to be upgraded 1/2012) but I need to get PayPal running. Where is the ipn.php? Thanks, Tom

    Missing ipn.php

    Hi Satish, Thanks for the reply. I am running an old version "application_top.php,v 1.272 2003/03/31 " of oscommerce. I downloaded the zip 2.3.1 and see all the files. However the catalog/ext/modules/payment/paypal/standard_ipn.php is in the EXT directory and my version of oscommerce does not have an EXT directory. If I install the file in my catalog/includes/modules/payment directory then the chdir('../../../../'); require('includes/application_top.php'); code will fail because the chdir will cd one directory back to far and the subsequent require will fail. Can I just change the chdir to chdir('../../../'); or am I opening a can of worms. Tom
  5. I'm an old member from 2003 and need some help. My client has a 1.272 oscommerce version with a 1.39 paypal.php installed. They have never activated the paypal module and the site is heavily modified so an upgrade to the latest oscommerce is not in the immediate future. Which version of paypal should I download and install/configure that will give me the best possible paypal system. Thanks in advance for your help and its good to be back in the oscommerce world once again. Tom

    Which PayPal module for old 1.2 Oscommerce?

    Thanks Chris, I have recommended the upgrade and they will be upgrading at the 1st of the New Year. Thanks for the info on compatibility. I was not sure if an older version of OSC relying on Globals ON would work with a new PayPal module.
  7. Hi Guys/Gals, Its been quite awhile since I have participated here, so I need your help. I'm running osCommerce 2.2-MS2-CVS and need to install an XML Sitemap that will be compatible with Google, Yahoo etc. I'm hoping to find an "EASY" to install/modify contribution since my site is heavily modified. Thanks in advance for you help and its good to be back. Tom
  8. Hi Jack, Do I need to have Ultimate SEO installed? Is it a prerequisite? Thanks, Tom
  9. Thanks George but that sitemap doesn't generate the full oscommerce URL ./catalog/product_info.php?products_id=2 Since each product has its own meta data I need a contrib that will create the full URL for the sitemap. Tom

    digital product with invoice number

    I'm not aware of any contribution..... However, I would think that you could change the download php file that copies the jpeg file to the download directory. Modify it to create a version of the jpeg with embeded text. Google for phpthumb and you'll find a nice GD compatible function that will create the new jpeg with the invoice number in it. HTH Tom
  11. Around line 258 in catalog/checkout_process.php find tep_mail($order->customer['firstname'] . ' ' . $order->customer['lastname'], $order->customer['email_address'], EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT, $email_order, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS); and make it // tep_mail($order->customer['firstname'] . ' ' . $order->customer['lastname'], $order->customer['email_address'], EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT, $email_order, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS); That should just skip the email to customer. HTH Tom
  12. Normally you just select the database in the left column, then a set of TABs will show up in the right side of the window one of which should be labeled SQL. HTH Tom

    Orders status never gets set to completed

    Hi Bob, Per forum rules, only the base oscommerce and contributions are supported here. Loaded versions of oscommerce are not supported here on the forum. You'll need to post your question on the creloaded forum. Good Luck, Tom

    ups AND usps not working after years?

    If you are on IPowerweb, then that may be the problem. I've seen lots of complaints like this in the past. They may be blocking that outgoing IP in their firewall. In any event contact your ISP and let them know the problem. HTH Tom

    USPS shipping not calculating properly

    Double check that your postal/zip code is correct in the admin area. admin->configuration->shipping/packaging->postal code. Then you must call USPS 800-344-7779 and have them move you to the production server. HTH Tom

    How to modify check module

    You probably have white space at the end of the following file. /home/username/domain-www/catalog/includes/languages/english/modules/payment/moneyorder.php Delete the spaces and/or newlines per http://www.oscommerce.info/docs/english/e_...ready_sent.html and you should be good to go. HTH Tom

    Download Controller won't download

    You need to add the "download" attribute to the product, zero weight, ftp to download folder and then make sure the order status is set to completed. Also highly recommend adding the "download controller" in the contribution section for easy admin of downloads (although it's not mandatory to do so.) If the payment on checkout was a "sale" and not just pending, then a link will be created for immediate download. Otherwise after you have set the order ot completed the link will be available in the customers order history. HTH Tom

    How to modify check module

    Same file - catalog/includes/languages/english/modules/payments/moneyorder.php find define('MODULE_PAYMENT_MONEYORDER_TEXT_EMAIL_FOOTER', "Make Payable To: ". MODULE_PAYMENT_MONEYORDER_PAYTO . "\n\nSend To:\n" . STORE_NAME_ADDRESS . "\n\n" . 'Your order will not ship until we receive payment.'); and change to define('MODULE_PAYMENT_MONEYORDER_TEXT_EMAIL_FOOTER', "Make Payable To: ". MODULE_PAYMENT_MONEYORDER_PAYTO . "\n\nSend To:\n" . STORE_NAME_ADDRESS . "\n\n" ); Do not use the oscommerce File Manager editor. It will cause parse errors by stripping the escape character \. Edit locally on your PC then ftp back to your site. If you still have parse errors then post the code for us to see and we will point out the error for you (hopefully). HTH Tom

    Product Attributes

    There is no sort in the standard oscommerce of the attributes. You are at the mercy of mysql and that is random at best. Try a contribution like attributes sort.... or check with the contributribution section for others that might be better suited for you. http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1690 HTH Tom
  25. UPS and USPS are different. UPS does not require a move to a production server. Check your zip code (5 digit) in admin->configuration->shipping/packaging->postal code HTH Tom
