    Terra, Alex and Tigergirl, So is this the best option you guys think for not driving people away and assure them that you dont really need to have a paypal account to pay and/or complete your order. The reason I ask is that I have also had many folks coming and than calling me that they dont want to use paypal to complete the order. I just want to know what can I edit and which codes to tell people that " YOU DON'T NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO COMPLETE YOUR ORDER". Please suggest what are the best options and I am going to implement it also. Best regards, Amit
  4. I have UPS and USPS both shipping modules installed on my site. The UPS and USPS shipping modules both display the correct shipping charge in the oscommerce cart on my website but as soon as I am transferred to Paypal the shipping rate changes and the incorrect shipping rates are transferred to Paypal. Does anyone have any idea whats going on or any suggestions ? Please help.

    So is this something being considered in the next upgrades ? I guess Terra you would be the one to answer that or is this an inherent problem with osC and cannot be solved as of now ?

    Tried everything but only the aggregate option works, otherwise shipping total is higher in the orders, no clue why. So i am switching back to aggregate, if there is a way to transfer items without messing up the total it would be great to know. Thanks Amit

    So does anyone know whats the issue of using aggregate vs. Per Item transaction trasnfer to PayPal. I know there is a problem because it does not work and the incorrect shipping amount is transferred with some multiple item transactions. Is this a solvable issue and something being worked on by the coders. I just hate not to show the customer any order details when they are ready to pay for the order. Is there another way out of this. Can we display items or other details of the order during check out at PayPal without messing up the shipping total or some other problem. The per item option with a multi-item order transfers an incorrect shipping charge to paypal and thats a problem.

    Terra, The problems seems to have been solved by switching to "aggregate total" transfer to paypal. But do we know why this error occurs and why is it recommendable to transfer "aggregate total" instead of "per item" transaction to paypal. The reason I ask is if I am the cutomer I would really like to look at what I am paying for instead of just a total displayed to paypal when I make my final payment, its a good sense of comfort. Is there a way to display the items in the shopping cart without going to the " per item" format. If not, are we trying to solve this bug in the next releases of the paypal IPN. Thanks for your input as always. Amit

    Terra, What code is to be added and where ? I am little confused as I could not find email('myemail@mydomain.com', 'order variables', print_r($_POST, true)); or is that what I need to add, if yes, where ? Thanks Amit

    Hi Terra, Thanks for the suggestions. I have overide profile settings and allow transaction based checked so it should override any profile based shipping. It still seems to calculate the shipping wierdly. The shipping is correct if you order only one quantity and or multiple of the same item generally or atleast thats what I have observed till now. Any further inputs ? Is there a way i can catch the shipping value being transferred to paypal and see where the problem may be occuring ?

    After PayPal checkout, merchant doesn't receive item info...

    Satish, Any idea about this situation ? I have a wierd problem. My shipping rates are not transferred correctly for some of the items. i.e. the shipping rate calculated by USPS or UPS and displayed in the oscommerce cart is not the same amount transferred to paypal. Again this is not true for all orders. If you get the time try it on my site, www.underthesunstore.com and try buying two of one kind of handmade printable paper and 1 another kind of handmade printable paper. Choose priority mail in USPS or ground in UPS see the amount of shipping displayed and see the amount of shipping transferred to paypal. The amounts are different . PayPal shows a much higher amount transferred for shipping because of which people are almost completing their orders but going away since there is mismatch of shipping between our website and paypal. Remember it does not occur for all orders so try what I described above and you will see what I am talking about. Thanks in advance , hope you can check it out. Amit

    Terra, Whats the recommended PayPal IPN version or module to run ? I currently have PayPal IPN Payment Module v1.3 which does seem to have some bugs. It would be great if someone could recommend a better version which is more efficient.

    Incorrect shipping rates transferred to Paypal

    The site is www.underthesunstore.com. The problem somehow does not appear with every transaction so try adding two of a kind printable papers and one of a kind and you will see the issue. Well I hope you do see it. The shipping calculated by either USPS or UPS in the cart is not the same amount transferred to paypal and I have no freaking clue whats going on. Thanks Amit
  17. What is the latest version of PayPal IPN with least bugs ? One problem I am currently having is that the correct shipping amount is not transferring to Paypal at checkout I don't know whats going on ? But in any case it would be good to know the destination and location of the latest and greatest PayPal IPN with least number of issues. Thanks Amit

    Paypal Issues- Please help

    I am very new to osCommerce but had been using paypal buy now buttons on my site before this. Installed paypal payment module and have the following issues, 1. No, order detail on the confirmation page for customer, no order details transferred to paypal before payment. Customer only sees the name of the store and order total which is very unfriendly for someone who is going to go ahead and pay you an amount. Is there a way to fix this so the customer can see the order details and pay comfortably for the order ?? 2. I am receiving order details in my oscommerce order module even before the payment is made which is very risky as we could ship an order even before it gets actually paid for in PayPal. What is the best way to link a successful payment in paypal to an order completion or order processed in the oscommerce shopping cart. Do I activate paypal IPN in my paypal profile tab and if yes, what URL or how do I connect that to the osCommerce shopping cart to reflect a successful payment completion. 3. Is there a dummy paypal credit card or email id paypal provides to test transactions on paypal. I donot want to keep charging my credit card to see how transactions go through in PayPal. Are there even any ways around these issues or is it a lost case ? Please help as without this it will be difficult for our store to go online. Thanks Amit
