    Cannot make TLS 1.2 work

    Hi, I've been getting problems this week, I've found this info from Paypal, but will the above fix work for me? I have no idea how to update the buttons! re: Things don't appear to be working at the moment. Please try again later. After contacting PayPal support by email they told me this: We have recently upgraded our security certificate at PayPal. This has caused some PayPal buttons to stop working. Please re-create your button and copy and paste the new HTML code on to your website. This will resolve the issue. Re-creating the buttons fixed it.

    Credit Class & Gift Vouchers for 2.3.4

    Hi, I'm running this, and when I select the start end date for the voucher, the lack of available years is beginning to cause a problem. the drop down menu only allows a year selection from 2010 to 2018, can anyone tell me how I change this to essentially remove the earlier years and add some later ones, i'e so I can run the dates from present to 2021 at least. thanks
  3. Hi, This contribution looks perfect, but with 13 pages of comments/errors/updates I'm a little worried it might be too complicated for me! Essentially my site is already a mess due to the clumsy addition of a dresscode theme. Is this contribution difficult for a non-programmer to do, and is it likely to 'break' my live site if i do something wrong? Windows 10 has just 'updated' my pc, and resets my printer on a document to the last printer i used. I usually have one file open to copy/paste my label info to, whihc is then sent to a thermal printer (small labels), and my invoices go off to my brother A4 printer. Now if I have to change the printer setting each time to the one i want as it no-long saves the printer choice for the document. Hence the reason i need a batch printing method! thanks Kellie
  4. Hi, Pretty sure there isn't any admin switch. I used to remove the yellow paypal button and you do have to edit the code.

    Paypal Express Missing Address Line

    Scrap that! I did get this to work on a brand new unmodded install, but on my live website, which is now fully up to date, this fix doesn't work. There are actually numerous places/files which mention the Street_address, but fail to mention company or suburb. I have tried to add these in, and still it carries the address, minus the company and second line of address. If anyone has come up with a solution please let me know

    blog module?

    Hi, Czymborjeff@gmail.com did you ever figure this out? I got the same error. Messed about for ages with it. There were spelling errors in a couple of the files though, but even after fixing them, same error (a few places title was spelt 'titel') Given up! But MrPhil, I did want a simple blog - just for news, like 'blah blah fabric back in stock!' etc Kellie

    Paypal Express Missing Address Line

    For anyone who is suffering the same issue I finally got this to work! the code above I added 'street_address' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOSTREET'], 'suburb' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SUBURB'], But there is also 3 other places in the code that need the 'suburb' code adding. Essentially I copied the code into word, did a search on the word STREET, and then where ever there was 'street' code that looked relevant added copied and pasted and edited to 'suburb' code.

    Paypal Express Missing Address Line

    I also note in my papal express the code looks like this: $sendto = array('firstname' => '', 'lastname' => '', 'company' => '', 'street_address' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOSTREET'], 'suburb' => '', 'postcode' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOZIP'], 'city' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOCITY'], 'zone_id' => '', 'zone_name' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOSTATE'], 'country_id' => '', 'country_name' => $HTTP_POST_VARS['SHIPTOCOUNTRY'], 'country_iso_code_2' => '', 'country_iso_code_3' => '', 'address_format_id' => '');

    Paypal Express Missing Address Line

    Hi, This is a problem I have had for ages and the fix didn't work for me. When I put the address in as comapny First Name Last Name Address 1 Address 2 City+, DN4 0RD state, UK it carried to paypal as : Delivery addressFirst Name Last Name Address 1 City+, State DN4 0RD - it then adds this address to the customer address book Do I have to remove and re-install the module after making changes? I am presuming I would, and did so, but I am actually having difficulty figuring out which module I have actually got installed! any idea why this isn't working for me, I am on osCommerce Online Merchant v2.3.3.2, but will update when I get a few free hours!

    Simple Blog 1.0

    Hi, I've been messing about with this for a while now, and I too cannot get any joy! I get the following as soon as I try to add my 'news' I've tried all sorts, and i'm pretty sure there is an error in the installation instructions or a file missing. Warning: mkdir(): No such file or directory in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 46 Warning: fopen(www.corsetmaking.co.uk\catalog\news/2015/20150301152354.txt): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 47 Warning: fwrite() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 48 Warning: fwrite() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 49 Warning: fwrite() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 50 Warning: fclose() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/corset/public_html/catalog/admin/admin_news.php on line 51
  11. Hi, I'm having a problem with my current paypal module, would one of the other ones work more effectively? I send my customers to paypal, as I do not have a 'secure' site, and I wouldn't like the responsibility of their card details anyhow! My current problem is below: Thanks, Kellie Posted Today, 12:10 Hi, I'm having problems with the paypal address overriding the customer address. When they pay, it carries the Paypal address over to the 'shipping address'. Often this address is incomplete. I think it is doing this because people are 'streamlining their experience' with Paypal (that is saving their password), but it must also be a paypal glitch - which they refuse to accept. It doesn't always carry the Paypal Primary address, it often carries the last address from their address book. These addresses are often missing street names or door numbers. Essentially, some sites have a box for the house number, another for street address, but Paypal only have one line for both, so I think only part of the address gets used and the other disposed of! So, to cut to the solution! Can anyone tell me a way that I force MY website to use the address the customer has entered into my website, and not use the Paypal address? Thank you Kellie My paypal module is: Paypal Express Version: 1.2 (online status) API Version: 60.0
  12. Hi, Yes, they have a model number and it is unique to each item. I used the EP with my current website, but the more recent add on seemed different and it was with the latest install. I did not run an SQL when I installed this one, though i'm certain I did last time, but it was a while ago.
  13. Okay, I see now that it didn't add some of my items as they were categories without products. I added a couple of products to the empty category and it did download. I then duplicated a couple of those products, changing the product number, and re-uploaded. the new stuff did not show! It will not download categories that have no products - that i can live with additional products added to a category don't upload - that makes the add-on pretty useless! starting to give up now1 maybe it is not compatible with the latest install? I used EP_V2_77a any help would be appreciated
  14. Hi, I have installed this on a new install. very few mods. I am having the same problem as RMD27, it would appear that is only downloading and uploading the first line of my database. So my spreadsheet shows the headers and then one row. If I add further rows they do not show. If I add extra categories/products manually and then download using EP, i still only get one row! I note the suggestion above about MB but i have no idea what/where i would look to see if this was my problem, and I have made so few changes to the installation I certainly haven't been deleting code. Any ideas?
  15. Hi, Can anyone help please. I've just set up a new install and added the store mode (only add on so far). I have currently set it to 'closed', and if you add the product to cart and choose checkout you go nowhere - all correct. However, if you press the yellow tab 'paypal express, you can checkout! The paypal express has been the bain of my life on my other website, and paypal overides my shipping addresses on that one, so i'm thinking this will do the same. On my old site, my only remedy was to make the express button invisible so no-one pressed it! Because the paypal express module is pre-loaded on the new install I cannot believe that there is not a solution to the problem to prevent people checking out - or is it that the store mode is simply not compatible with paypal express? I do find closing the checkout when necessary totally essential and really feel this option should be pre-installed anyway - I cannot live without it!! site is www.corsetmaking.co.uk Thank you - and Happy New Year Kellie

    Prohibiting Shipping to States/Countries

    @@Jack_mcs Thank you for the info. I would like to allow my existing customers to remain, and that doesn't seem viable with these options, so it would mean upsetting a few people! I'll wander through the contributions and see if there is any way around it! @@14steve14 - yes I use the RM shipping and that works fine. The problem is if an order is over 2kg it may have to go via courier. I recently sent an order to Korea (Rep) and it was stopped by customs who want Tariff codes for each item. There was over 40 different items! The codes are difficult to figure what goes with what. E.g - you get in the section for Textiles and there is a different code for embroidery fabric, and for nylon and for cotton, etc. My fabrics are often mixed fibres, sometimes I don't even know what composition they are so its impossible to know what Tarrif code it is - and i'll be damned if I know why the hell it makes any difference to customs! In the end I gave up and they returned the package too me. It seemed that had I done the codes customs would have charged ME for exporting - sod that I pay enough tax for things coming in! Kellie

    Prohibiting Shipping to States/Countries

    If I delete the countries from as above, will this only affect only NEW customers? Will the existing customers still be able to order? thanks Kellie

    Prohibiting Shipping to States/Countries

    Hi, Thank you. Deleting countries definitely seems the best way to go. I'll take a look at the database - not a place I go often - but less scary than messing with the code! Kellie

    Prohibiting Shipping to States/Countries

    This is rather an old post, so I just wondered if any had produced a contribution or an 'easy' solution to this problem? I'm in the UK, and due to the complications of shipping my products outside of UK/Europe, just simply want to excluded the 'worldwide' option on my postal options. With an explanation! Kellie

    PayPal Address Overriding Customer Shipping Address

    Hi Harald, It is possible I have a setting wrong somewhere because my customers HAVE to be logged in before they can checkout as I removed the Express tab, but still it sometimes over rides, and not always with their primary address, but with some random address which has been sucked into their address book! Personally, I think its a paypal glitch. They have got a little (more) greedy lately and now want everyone to 'streamline' their accounts, which means your password is saved and the minute you press the buy now button - its bought, no 'are you sure' or 'please confirm'. I have been very careful not to tick the box and 'streamline' with two teenage boys browsing ebay my Paypal account would empty very rapidly! If you think of a way to make the shipping address use the one entered by the customer (the invoice address does use that), that would be great because I also added the sloppy words cleaner, and it cleans up the addresses entered onto my site, but when the paypal address is dragged over it can be all mishmash letters and looks very sloppy! I have made the shipping address appear in a larger bold font and on the left side, so I can fold the paper and use it has a shipping label - hence it is quite essential the address is complete. In the mean time i'll just have to keep checking them I guess, but a good 15% of addresses from paypal are actually wrong/incomplete! Kellie

    PayPal Express Checkout and Shipping

    Hi, I'm having a similar problem. Recently, paypal introduced a 'streamline your payments option'. You may have noticed that you can remain logged on now on your mobile phone, whereas previously you had to input your password every time. When people buy on ebay and pay, they see a paypal page and are asked to tick the box. this saves their password (with paypal), and next time they buy it pays automatically, no confirming, no 'are you sure!' When people have saved their password is when I get a problem. Firstly it imports their main paypal address, which is invariably not complete, not the address they wanted, or input very sloppy. The second problem is when the attempt to upgrade their postage on paypal. i.e, it doesn't take the extra payment, shows on paypal as though they have chosen that postage, but still says he same on the invoice (the correct amount). On my site everyone HAS to register before going to checkout, I removed the 'Express' link (this allows people to go to checkout with out logging into your site, creating a guest account after they pay) - it is still there but not visible! I think that is why I am having less problems than most of you. However, the problems seem to be Paypals though I spent 1 hour on the phone to them and got no where!
  22. Hi, I have just updated from v2.3.3.1 to v2.3.3.2 and now my easy populate file will not upload. It downloaded fine but after changes when I upload it I get the message: File uploaded. Temporary filename: /tmp/phpqebtD5 User filename: EP2014Jan21-0202 lacetrims14.csv Size: 11428 But no changes to my stock list. I notice there is a new ~EP add-on, but this seems to be a new install not an update. Do I just install over the old one?
  23. Hi, Can anyone point me to an add on to sort the items in the basket upon checkout. Previously I used to paste the order into word and sort on column 2 (the description), but as i'm printing directly from the screen now I'm not able to do this. My customers buy 20-30 items each time and they are located in different places, sometimes I miss an item and have to go back to the same place twice (which may be my outbuilding or upstairs!) its very time consuming. As they checkout I'd like the basket to sort itself in order, so all the 'elastic' for example is together. When I list items I list them in a way they automatically sort on my website: i.e Elastic - Strap - plush backed - 12mm, Black, per metre. and the next items may look exactly the same, but be white, red etc. Anyone know of such an add-on? thank you Kellie

    Thank you so much. That works perfectly and will save me so much time. Kellie

    Sorting items in basket for invoice

    Thank you so much for looking at this for me. I have a terrible time with the coding as it makes no sense to me. I am kind of dyslexic. I have no problem with the English language - I guess cos I've had 40 years at it, but coding or numbers, because they appear quite random to me, I find it really hard to see the wood amongst the trees. It takes me hours!!! Hopefully I've done the quote thing right! [/
