    Master Products - MS2

    This contribution looks to be (maybe) what I need. I've read much of this HUGE thread, but I'm still unsure if it can do the following, so I thought I'd ask... :) We sell small router boards that have various cards & options. Right now, we have pull down menus using the Attributes, which from the customer side is pretty much OK. However, from our side, shipping weights aren't updated with attributes (although there is a contribution for that I see) and attributes don't update quantities of the 'optional items', some of which we also sell as individual items, and some we don't. We want to have accurate real time stock quantities, and I think this Master/Slave contribution might be the ticket. Right now we have people order a bundle, but might not know that one of the 'options' is sold out. Also, we have the Qty Price Break contribution module installed, which is fine right now, EXCEPT that I'd like to allow customers to purchase in quantity blocks like: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, 25. Right now, if I set it at blocks of 5, then a customer that wants just 2 boards is out of luck. If I set it to 1 each, customers can order 13 or 19, which is a pain for me. And finally, some customers want to buy bare boards, while some want 2 or 3 or 5 options. I don't want to allow a customer to buy 1 board and then 50 power supplies at the special bundled price. However, if they want to order 25 boards but only 10 power supplies, that would be fine - so basically a limit that each of the slave options would be limited to the same or less than the master or primary item. Thank you for your help / suggestions.

    can my store send e-mails after paypal ipn

    Hi. I have a similar question... I had an improved order number contribution installed, which changes checkout_process.php to send emails with the order number in the subject, and to also send those order confirmation emails TO: me, but FROM: the customer, rather from the cart. With the number of orders we get, that helped 100% in keeping track, and in keeping customer email conversations clearly assigned to the right order number. However, since we've installed the IPN module, it apparenly bypassed checkout_process.php, and I can't seem to get it to send emails the same way as the cart used to before I installed the paypal_ipn module. Please, any help would be apprecaited. :)

    Zone Shipping by State, Ver. 1.0

    Well, ne habla espanol, ni Spreken zie Deutsch either. :) However, your ability to explain things in English is VERY good. I appreciate your help here. I had been looking for language files, but I didn't understand that each php could/would have it's own matching php language file. Thank you.

    Most excellent reply! I'm starting to put the pieces together, and you're detailed reply was very helpful, thank you. I'm not a PHP programmer, but did LOTS of programming in other languages in years gone by. Of course, being new to OSC and knowing everything there fits is a puzzle in itself. I think I'm pretty much good to go here, with the pointers you've given me here. Something I've been searching for the last couple hours for. When I go to checkout, it properly displays the shipping options.... Canada Post (1 box(es) to be shipped) Priority Courier, 2007-01-23 $15.06 Expedited, 2007-01-23 $7.48 Regular, 2007-01-24 $7.48 Zone Rates Shipping to CA : 2.75 lb(s) $8.50 But, where is the actual strings of the shipping method - 'Canada Post' and 'Zone Rates' held? If I do the multiple interstate as you suggest, then I'd want the methods to be called descriptors of 'Econo' and 'Fast' and not 'Zone Rates'. Thank you.

    Zone Shipping by State, Ver. 1.0

    Oh, and one more question if I may. :) Does this allow me to decide which products (on a product by product basis) I offer which shiping methods? In my case, some products are ready to ship and can leave same day, while others need to be programed and configured and might not be ready to leave for 3-4 days. It would be great if I didn't offer next day shipping on something that wouldn't leave for 4 days, yet to be able to offer next day on other items. Thank you in advance for your help. :) Todd

    Hi. I wasn't sure what the end result of this was for Don... Does this module work smoothly? My situation is that I'm a Canadian company and I drop-ship some of my products from a California supplier. I was looking for a way to setup UPS module without having an American UPS account, but this kind of module may be just the ticket. If I understand properly, I could have my shipping options called 'Surface', 'Express' and 'Really Bloddy Fast' if I want, and then if I have to ship that product from Canada via Mail, of if I have to ship that item from Californail via UPS, I can decide that when I go to ship. Is that correct so far? If so, does was Don's problems unique? Are you and others using the module without problems? I have the Canada Post module running correctly right now, but it's really only a solution for my Canada to Canada and my Canada to USA shipments. My USA to USA shipments are not calculated right now and I need a solution to that. Do you think this will do it for me? Thank you.

    Custom Shipping Module Needed

    Hi. Did you get a solution? I have a similar (but different) situation. I need to calculate UPS shipping rates, but I don't have a UPS account. The shipping will be done by our supplier, so we don't need a UPS account for any reason, but still need to be able to calculate and charge the customers for their shipping. I'm new to OSC, so would some sort of table or flat rate or zone shipping allow me to calculate UPS rates?
  8. Hi. I am a Canadian Company, and I have a Canada Post module working. (YAY!) The short question is that I also need to install a UPS module, BUT it needs to caculate rates for shipping USA to USA (or wherever) shipments. The deal is that I ship some products from our Canadian address, but I also blind drop ship products from USA Vendors directly to USA customers. A couple of our products are only available from our Canadian store, so they will always have to ship from Canada to both Canadian and USA addresses. That last factor (the couple products that always need to ship from Canada) may be something we can fudge if there end up being no other better solution. So, in a nutshell, I need to install a UPS Module along side our Canada Post module, but with rates for shipping from a USA address (California). The problem is, when I call UPS to setup an account, USP Canada can't calculate rates from USA to USA, and UPS America can't open accounts for non-USA companies. Of course, because I'm actually drop shipping and the vendor themselves does the actual shipping, I won't be incurring any charges from UPS myself, so I don't need an account from a billing/payment standpoint, only to be able to correctly calculate rates. So, I guess if there is a UPS module with a static rate chart, and one where we can put the shipping zip code in the module itself so it knows to calculate rates from USA and so it doesn't look at our company address, then that would probably be a solution. I have looked at Multi-Vendor shipping, which looks close, but it appears to need a working UPS module ahead of time, and I again run into the problem with not being able to setup a UPS account since I'm Canadian. :( Ideally I'd like to be able to specify what products ship from where, and in what lot quantities, and what shippers are valid on what products, but that's not a huge deal in itself. My immediate needs is to be able to install a UPS module along side our Canada Post module, and for that UPS module to know about USA to USA rates. Also, (I don't know if this is taboo) I'm willing to pay for someone's time to get this functional in our cart. :) Thank you for any help. :)

    My Canada Post Module is saying XML parsing error.

    I have a solution for this xml parsing error - at least for the version of the error I was getting. It was simply that my cart was not collecting State/Province information when the customer was signing up, and it wasn't transmitting that to Canada Post as a result. Which means that the module was probably setup perfectly in 20 minutes, and I've fought for 5 days over a missing province. Argh.

    Canada Post Module Postal Code Illegal

    Hello Druid, you seem to be the only one that's answering questions about the Canada Post module. :) I have 2.2-MS2 and the 3.7 module with Dimensions, and if I understand the installation instructions properly - I've copied the files into the proper directories and copied them over the files. I've run the SQL query to append the database, so that all seems proper, but when I go to checkout, I get XML parsing error Any help, from anyone, would be greatly appreciated. :)

    My Canada Post Module is saying XML parsing error.

    I know it's nearly 2 years late, but my CPost module is doing the same - XML parsing error. Did you figure out the problem and have a solution?
  14. BTW, Catherder and I are friends, so I'm yanking his chain here. I'm not actually insane. :) However, I really genuinely am having problems with the CP with Dimensions module ver 3.7. When I go to check out, I get an XML parsing error. Canada Post XML parsing error. If you prefer to use canadapost as your shipping method, please contact the BuyWispGear.com via Email. I contacted Canada Post, and they say from their end, the cart doesn't look to be sending all the required data, but as far as I can tell, the module is correctly configured, port 30000 is open, and the Canada Post account (Venture One) is setup. I would appreciate any feedback, any ideas, any suggestions, any brainstorming, any discussion...
  15. Since you are the author of the Canada Post Contribution module, I thougt you could give me some help. It's good to know that you are willing to support your module. ;)I'm getting an 'XLM Parsing error' when I go to checkout. I'm using the 3.7 Module with dimensions. If the 'if and when' is right now, that would be good. AFAIK, all my settings are correct and I have my Canada Post customer number in there correctly, but still get a simple 'XLM Parsing Error'. Port 30000 is open, and I've tested this by changing ports to something else, and I get an 'unable to connect to canada post' error instead. OH, BTW, I have osCommerce 2.2-MS2
