    Payment Modules & Merchant Accounts

    Hi guys & gals, I've recently dealt with customer orders through PayPal and I'm wondering what's everyone's solutions on customers orders. For instance I use paypal and they take $0.30 + 2.9% per order, but the problem I'm having is how do you do only a partial refund, without the customer getting charged $0.30 + 2.9% if you send them money back. Also how can you do cc orders over the phone, because theres no where on paypal to do manual orders, the only way i know is by requesting money, but this takes time and buyers can't just pay right over the phone, you have to make sure they check their emails and pay. Now I was thinking of getting authorize.net merchant account, but they don't list their prices on their website, you have to call them. Is that because each person gets charged different prices? Also is it possible to do manual orders through their website or get a external cc processor. I'm looking for the most efficient and cost saving way to get a small business running. Anyone have any suggestions?

    You don't put the above code in phpmyadmin, you just edit the parts where it says changeme into ur info

    I think msn and aol have their own shopping feeds too.

    Batch Order Center Update 1.1

    Actually I think it's standard osc bug error, since admin/invoice.php or admin/orders.php doesn't show it correctly either.

    I have tried 1.4.4 and it seems fast with about 1500 products.

    If you could pm it to flyingmonkey that be great. Also thanks for the info for the other comparison engines.
  9. I believe the sql error is for the image height and width for the line with the error, just change it from '' to '300' for both of them and it'll give u the next error which is '112' just change it to ''

    Ok Found MySimon, it's located at http://www.mysimon.com/4002-5-5099734.html They sure know how to hide it. Especially when their FAQ's point to the wrong page.

    I interpret offer_id to be products_model. For those who aren't using easypopulate, they probably wouldnt use offer_id.

    I think adding offer id is fine, especially since I bet most of you guys are using Easypopulate, which requires all products to have an unique id anyways. For those of us using master products and EP, our masters id number can be copied over, but as in your previous froogle, i believe you got rid of all duplicate products. Also people wouldn't usually change product id numbers as it'll create a double item with two different product id's in osc.

    For those of us who don't know how, how do you enable advanced options? I don't remember seeing an option anywhere
  16. looks like you already have a customers info there. when you tried to enter sql statement.

    I wouldn't mind being the first to test 1.41 hopefully if the master products thing works out.

    Master Products - MS2

    Has anyone gotten froogle data feeder contrib to work with master products?

    Mibble: Thanks, FlyingMonkey: That would be a cool idea, since some people don't check stock levels and some do. For shipping as mibble said i guess I would leave it blank and I noticed that BizRate lets you select FedEx standard rates.

    I was just testing out BizRate, as i'm waiting for Froogle to approve my feed, but I was wondering about # on Hand, if you set your stock level to off, mine shows 0 for all items. Also what are you guys doing about ship cost, since I guess most people would base it on weight. Thanks.

    Although it's probabbly pretty simple to code in master products, it'll probably take me a while to figure it out, if you could give a shot at it, it would be great. Also I was wondering for Froogle's encoding, do we use UTF-8 Latin-1 , i don't remember seeing it on the thread or readme. Thanks.

    i'm not familar with master products, but i assume there is some sort of database table that keeps track of the master products and it's associated slaves. you'd have to write an sql query to retrieve this information, then write code to tell it to use the associated master product's description if the product is a slave of a master. also to avoid the master products from displaying you'd have to write a check for them. Yeah that's pretty much it, it associates by using a 1 or 0, for master or slave, and the slave points to its associated master. I just gotta figure out how to write the sql statement now, hopefully it'll be useful for others using mp as well. MP is a great tool for big volume sellers.

    I'm just installing this as well and will let you know how it goes. But mines a little different from everyone elses since i use master products along with a lot of other people. So perhaps someone can help. First off the excel created fine and all my active products show up, but my master product holds the description for my slave products, so right now my slave products aren't showing the master product as the description. Also for my master product I have the price as 0 and active, but don't want it to show up in froogle, because its a place holder on osc for the slave products. That's pretty much all the problems I have so far, i could modify it all by hand, but then I already have 2k lines of excel and planning to add 3-5k more. Anyone know the best fix for this?

    both the directory and file chmod to 777? temp, feeds, and outfile.txt? Also is outfile.txt suppose to be your "froogle accont name".txt

    Do we have a yahoo store manager on oscommerce to save 20% off on cost of feeds? Thanks.
