  1. Dear Brian, My store is now live from today. Many thanks!!! There still seem to be a problem that I don't know how to solve. When we sign in and choose Paypal Express we reach eventually somewhere on the payment page, at the last stage before the final confirmation, stuck in loop where it displays on a red bar the following error: "Please select a payment method for your order." That is also a pointer that sends me back to the Payment Method... Yet, if I do the checkout pressing on the yellow Paypal button present on the Login page, I do not have this problem. You may see our online store and the problem live here: www.verifresh.com/onlinestore The Credit card payment is fine. I would really appreciate any sugestion that may help pass over this loop. Best, Theodore

    2gether Discount

    Hi everyone, Is there a solution for this problem? All works nice but... The advertised discount is not removed from the total in the checkout. How can we fix that? Many thanks in advance! Theo
  3. Hi all, I installed successfully the last USPS shipping module. If I have at least 1 selection for domestic and international I get regular price quotes. But if I want to use only the international USPS and I have no selection for domestic USPS, then for a USA address I get this error: "An error occured with the USPS shipping calculations. If you prefer to use USPS as your shipping method, please contact the store owner" Is there a way to prvent this to show up on the shipping checkout page? Many thanks in advance Theo

    Free shipping

    Hello... I just installed the Freeamount 3.5. Thanks for your contribution... I have 2 questions... maybe you could help. 1. The default initial minimum sum for getting free shipping is $30. Even if I chnge it in the admin to something else in the OSC it still has the $30. Where can I change that value? 2. If the sum exceedes that limit and we get the free shipping ( the economy ground one) I loose the UPS (XML) air 2 days option... that was initially listed. How could I still keep that option listed when I have the free shipping enabled? Many thanks in advance! Theodore

    Multi-Stores Multiple Shops Support

    Dear all that have some experience with this Multi-Store... I am a bit lost... I need some help! Seems like a great contribution but I have some bugs .... After working for 3 days to carefully merge the code, to my shop that has already a number of contributions integrated, I configured the admin according to the instructions. I have selected the default store for the meantime and wanted to to see it alive. Yet, when I try to open the default store on the correct URL, I get an empty page... nothing after a second of reading something.... even when trying to open the index.php file in that catalog-multistore folder, the same..... I think that I have set up the correct paths in the admin and selected the default store... I am missing something.... What can it be? Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Best, Theodore

    PayPal WPP Direct Payments & Express Checkout Support

    Hi Brian, Sorry to bug you again with this problem... if any luck I would really apreciate it :blush: I just hope I will not run into problems with Paypal for not behaving by their policy (which is a bit weird in my eyes, especially displaying the Paypal on the Payment page after it was already exposed on the login page). You may have a look at my site: http://www.verifresh.com/onlinestore Many thanks again ;) Theodore

    PayPal WPP Direct Payments & Express Checkout Support

    Dear Brian, Really nice module.... Thousand thanks in advance! Here is the exact description of the problem: 1. Open http://www.verifresh.com/onlinestore 2. Choose an available, product for example our "Tongue Cleaner", click on it and its product_info.php page will open. 3. Click "Add to Cart", and the shopping_cart.php page will open. 4. Click on "Checkout" and this will call up the login.php page (nameed here "Account Sign In"). 5. Here you either choose to Sign in as an "Already a Customer:" and use our new testing account (use email address= popesail@gmail.com, passw =999999999 - just made that up, not a real one) or sign in as a "New User:", and press "Continue". 6. That takes you to the checkout_shipping.php (our Shipping Information page) where you may choose "Econnomy Shiopping" in the radio button, then press Continue to "Choose a checkout method. 7. It opens the checkout_payment.php (our "Payment Details" page) where I press on teh Paypal yellow button. 8. Now it takes you to Paypal login, you sign in to your Paypal account, and it opens the Paypal "Review Your Payment" page. 9. On this page you click on the button "Review Payment", that takes you back to our site, to the checkout_payment.php page (our page called "Payment Details") that contains the following text: "Fast, Secure Checkout with PayPal You're currently checking out with PayPal Express Checkout! Click Here to choose another payment method." Here, press "Continue" and you will get this additional red bar on top with a white text, saying: "Please select a payment method for your order.", ... and that happens instead of going next to the checkout_confirmation.php (on our "Order Details" page). NOTE1: if I chose to press on the "Click Here to choose another payment method." link it takes me back to the checkout_shipping.php where I can choose the "Economy Shipping option" and press Continue to "Choose a payment method". It opens the checkout_payment.php again, choose teh Paypal yellow button again, sign in Paypal, Opens the Paypal Review Your Payment, clicl Review Payment, back to "Payment Details" "You're currently checking out with PayPal Express Checkout!", press Continue, and only now i get to the next stage on the checkout_confirmation.php (on a page called "Order Details") that allows me to Confirm Order, and finalise the current trasaction. NOTE2: Yet, if I choose to checkout with the Paypal yellow button straight from the login.php page (our Account Sign In page) it allows you to checkout without the trouble above (no more "Please select a payment method for your order."), all the way to the confirmation in one shot. Best regards, Theodore (pope's mobile express :))))))

  18. Brian hello, There was another small question about a piece of code that was added for Paypal pro in the create_accout.php, if the same should be placed in the create_accout_for_fast_checkout.php (for chackout without account). Many thanks in advance again! Theodore Below the block of code in discussion: //---PayPal WPP Modification START ---// //$check_email_query = tep_db_query("select count(*) as total from " .

    Paypal Express hanging in the process

    Dear Brian, IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!! GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MANY MANY THANKS!!!! I made 2 successful transactions on Direct and Express Paypal. best regards!!!! Theodore
  20. Dear Experts, I would be really grateful for any advice... I am so "LOST IN SPACE" now... Stuck for a long time.... I have added a help request as well on the Paypal forum that may be viewed at this site: http://www.pdncommunity.com/pdn/board/mess...message.id=1998 Also the text of the questions below. I did very carefully everything that was written in the instruction from this contribution... I feel that I need a tiny fix or explanation to make it work. We are ready to ship the products but stuck with the Online Store.... PLEASE heeelp!!! Many thanks in advance... Theodore ============ I have installed Paypal pro ( contribution paypal_wpp_0.8.2) in OSCommerce, and using it in the Sandbox. The trasactions made with Paypal Direct using Credit Cards are seen clearly in the sandbox. Yet when I try to test a checkout using the Paypal Express, it opens a login page under Paypal site... see below: https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webs...N45148K1903380D Or see the image below... My Webpage After signing in, I get to this address: https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/w...e8ebc06a6158b81 and get to the following screen which actulaly prompts me to open gain a login page... also it looses all the information about the products in the cart.... that were never listed under Paypal... not to talk about the shipment details... and a possible option for free shipment if the customer bought over a certain sum.... It is still a mistery how it should work.... On this page I would have expected to see the details of the transaction - the content of the shopping cart - and have a confirmation button, after which to be taken back to my Online Sotre to the shipping page, possibly to set the shipping or the the Final confirmation page if the shipping was set with all details in the Paypal page.... still the option for UPS and for a free shipping is being lost in the Paypal?... Instead of finalizin the transaction in Paypale It gives only the option to review payment and when I press the orange rectangle it takes me back to the sign in to the Paypal account but out of the context of this transaction... Please help understad how it works and what I should do to fix it and make it work... Many thanks in advance and please excuse my ignorance if I am missing the obvious....

Options PayPal_Cory PayPal Staff Posts: 37 Registered: 06-07-2006 Reply 2 of 3 Viewed 18 times I think you may be misunderstanding how ExpressCheckout works (or I am misunderstanding your question): ExpressCheckout allows PayPal users to select their PayPal information for use on your website. So when a PayPal buyer goes to PayPal, they only select shipping and financial options and are then returned to your site. From your site, you offer your buyer various shipping methods, discounts, etc and then submit the transaction for final processing - i.e. we can not provide any shipping details, discounts or coupon information because we don't know what the final order will look like until you submit it from your site. Once you submit it, you receive a response of whether the transaction was successful or a failure was generated and can then respond to the buyer immediately. The flow would be like: 1 Buyer chooses PayPal option on your website 2 Your application redirects the buyer to PayPal using the token received in SetExpressCheckout 3 Buyer reviews financial information and chooses shipping address (if required) 4 Buyer is redirected back to your site. 5 You gather buyer details by using GetExpressCheckout using the token and payerId data returned to your site 6 You offer any upgrades, shipping options, discounts, etc, - adjust the totals as needed 7 Verify the order data is correct with the buyer. If your buyer mistakenly chose the wrong address, you can loop them back up to step #2 using the existing token 8. Submit transaction for final processing. 9. Your application then responds to Success or Failure and directs the buyer wherever you want them to go. This is very different than Website Payments Stadard processes where the entire flow is hosted on PayPal. We listened to our customers who wanted a way to control the transaction with more granularity and have the buyer back on the site before committing the transaction. ExpressCheckout is the solution that both shortens the entire interaction process with PayPal and gives merchants the control they need over the payment flow. 02-07-2007 09:13 AM Rate this message: 1 2 3 4 5 (Best) Reply Mark Message as New Add This Message to My Bookmarks Add This Message to My Subscriptions Subscribe to this message's RSS Feed Highlight This Message Print This Message Print to End (Max 50) E-Mail this Message to a Friend Report Abuse to a Moderator Re: Problems with Paypal Express checkout... Options brahms2 Contributor Posts: 12 Registered: 01-15-2007 Reply 3 of 3 Viewed 3 times Dear Cory, Many thanks for your detaliled answer. The problem is that I am not a an PHP programmer and even though all you say seems perfectly logical to me too, I don't think I know where to go to do the apropriate corrections. I have used an "out of the box" contribution for OSCommerce which was alegedly doing all that job correctly. There is no one to blame except for myself choosing these solutions. It seems that, as you can see, teh system is hanging on your Stage 3. I guess (also not able to review financial information without loosing the initial information), and is not "redirected back to my site" after that. I am "lost in space" right now... since I have no clue how I could get this right... Is there any additional practical suggestion form your side? If that would help I could let you try live our site to see what is actually happening... Many thanks Theodore 02-10-2007 01:03 PM

Thankful, Theodore

    Paypal Express hanging in the process

    Weird... I set up the ssl. Used the shared ssl on my webhost. Basically moved all the catalog tree under ssl folder, and made all the urls, relative and absolute paths corrections in the includes/configure.php and admin/includes/configure.php. The Online store workes just fine. I even see teh padlock and the https when getting on the checkout pages. Yet, I still get the same error. Any ideas where I should look for the problem now? Thousand thanks... as usual... Theodore

    Paypal Express hanging in the process

    That should ne good news for me, necause it seems that the only thing that was not set up in that configure.php file is the https site and to turn the SSL on. I am actually working to install the SSL on my site now. Is this what you suggest? BTW, do you know how can I check if my web host has th cURL enabled? Many thanks again, Theo

    Paypal Express hanging in the process

    Dear Brian, I have gone live this time (no more sandbox). ...set up the live credentials for our OSC, the username, password, and certificate uploaded and the absolute link in the admin. Created myself a real paypal accunt and tested the Paypal pro. Here is the scenario where I get stuck, and have no clue how to debug... your help would be of tremendous value since we are trying to go live asap. 1. I choose a product and do checkout. 2. That takes me to the login page where I have the Paypal yellow button to checkout (btw the same problem occures if I hit the Paypal yellow button from the Payment page) 3. If I hit the Paypal yellow button present on the Login page it takes me to the Paypal login page. 4. I log into Paypal with my real Paypal email address and password. 5. Papal opens the "Review Your Payment" page. See here the page (i modified my real numbers): Paypal - Review Your Payment 6. Here if I click on the Review Payment button (the yellow rectangle at the bottom of this page) it takes me to an error page https://www.paypal.com/row/cgi-bin/webscr?d...d1e24bdaa002beb ... saying "The page cannot be found" (HTTP 404 - File not found . Internet Explorer ) I was expecting to open a page where be able to review my payment and then be forwarded back to my site to finalize the transaction. If you could give me any suggestions, hints, what, where, ... that would be really great! BTW I did not installed an SSL certificate yet, could it be related to this? Means on my site everything is still on http (not https yet). Is there any Authority not prohibitely expensive that you would recommend? Many many thanks in advance, Theodore

    Paypal Express hanging in the process

    Dear Brian, Thank you for the explanations. What is not clear is how is the user supposed to return to the site on the shipping page, since in my testing in the sandbox, when on the paypal site and press "review payment" it looses the innitial thread. Also the Button Return to the site doesn't take me to the Shipment page but to a different one. I was wondering if I give up the sandbox and start testing on the real Paypal account, things would work smoother. Many thanks again, Regards, Theodore
