  1. Of all the modules PayPal is the easiest to be installed.

    IPN stands for instant payment notification and is used now a days with all PayPal modules.

     

    I recommend using 'PayPal Website Payments Standard' which is available in rc2 version.

    Satish,

     

    This will work for v.3, too? If so it would be great news!


  2. I had a fairly cart that blended with the rest of my site.

     

    Unfortunately, I don't see any of the customization documentation in 3.0 that was available for 2.2, so I am having a hard time migrating all of the edits I had made to my old site. It appears that I have to edit the templates rather than the top, bottom, main pages, etc.

     

    Can anyone point me in the right direction, please?

     

    Also, the install package from OSC didn't even have all of the icons bundled with it; any idea where I can download these? I don't like all of the broke links.

     

    Thanks,


  3. 1. Log out

    2. Log back in

    3a. If you log in using the link that sends you to create a label once you log in, then you will be fine

    3b. if you log in using the USPS page link, I think you have to follow their links to create a new label until you get to their form

    4. Then you can go to the usps oscommerce form and submit it.

     

    I think their new program is too smart, so that if you haven't gone to the start a label form yet then it runs into trouble.

     

    Where do I make these changes???


  4. Tony,

    USPS now generates a package ID as a hidden input field when the form is generated that gets submitted along with the return and delivery addresses. I haven't figured out how to generate one that the Click-n-Ship server likes yet. If you leave it blank, you get an error. If you put a constant in there, it will just overwrite the first label in your cart.

    So, are we good to go tonight?


  5. Kinquchi,

     

    It is possible. I had to do this on my own install.

     

    Unfortunately, it was one of those bleary-eyed coding sessions, so can't quite remember what I did.

     

    I believe that it was in the includes/languages/english/shippping folder. Look for the entry whose name matches the contribution.

     

    Then, carefully hunt through the code and change one thing at a time (making careful notes of what was changed) and toggle back and forth between the code view and the live page results.

     

    That's how I did it.


  6. I have it working - Domestically.

     

    Even though I have specified shipping methods for international shipping, when I leave my site and hit the USPS site it tries to conform the address to US standards, which doesn't work.

     

    Any ideas? or do I need a separate contribution?


  7. I got mine working on the first pass - all right first pass and a half.

     

    What I can't figure out is it starts out with a three-pound package and then adds the weight of my items to it. A bit expensive for my customers!

     

    Any ideas? I only offer Priority and Express mail (they give free packaging).


  8. Okay, I'm abandonning artistry and going for speed.

     

    The only problem that I'm having is Julian's basic contribution doesn't complete successfully. It has a problem with the SSL page it bounces back to indicate success.

     

    I had a similar problem with the URL in the update e-mail and had to change "SSL" to "NONSSL" in the references to one of the pages.

     

    Does anyone have any ideas??


  9. Just two tweaks,

     

    1. I'd like to be able to print just the address label. I can see from the Post Office Guide what needs to be passed to change the formatting, but does anyone know where the variables are stored?

     

    2. I'd like the postage field to print as blank as opposed to "Postage Required" when I don't purchase postage from the Post Office.

     

    The USPS Mailing Assistant software can pull off both of these tricks, other than writing the tracking number back to my database (okay, I can dream can't I?) I love this contribution.


  10. Thank you.

     

    The basic module worked fine, but the "transparent" module is the one that has caused my (lastest) round of fits.

     

    It kept sending to my former processor AuthorizeNet, I couldn't find out where EProcessing Network was pulling the URL to AuthorizeNet, so I deleted all of the authorizenet files and kablooey, no more ability to enter configuration information in the Credit Card Portion of my Admin module.

     

    Do you have any idea where I should begin debugging? The good news is that I just found an old sql backup and was able to restore my 950 customer entries, which I was sweating like bullets.


  11. You can charge a customer's credit card in advance of shipment provided:

     

    1. The merchant has every reason to believe that s/he will be able to ship the product within 30 days; or

     

    2. It is clearly communicated to the customer that the item will not be shipped at the time the charge is processed, but will be shipped at a future point disclosed to the customer.

     

    BTW, I have learned today from AuthorizeNet that if a merchant has an active shopping cart and is trying to upgrade to the new AIM system, AuthorizeNet will provide the merchant with a separate "Testing Account."

     

    In my case it allows me to test my new osCommerce cart while my PerlShop cart continues to process orders through WebLink.


  12. I just got off the "Chat" with AuthorizeNet.

     

    I was told that I could be testing AIM, while my current cart is using webconnect.

     

    So, taking her at her word, I submitted a credit card that she provided and got a white screen with the following:

    3,2,14,The referrer, relay response or receipt link URL is invalid.,000000,P,0,,,12.87,CC,auth_capture,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,EA8193360AC

    3730ea,109,13

     

    Does this mean that I'm any closer to getting this on the road?


  13. Stamps.com? I used to use them when we first started, but eventually the romance tired.

     

    Send me a PM and I'll send you the balance of my labels, they're just gathering dust.

     

    I'm hoping that in one of the replies to this post that I'll learn that osC is actually keeping the tracking numbers. I know that many sites where I shop, when I get an e-mail, I can just click the link and it takes me straight to the shipper's tracking page and sometimes even just pops up with my results. That's what I'm really hoping to achieve with this Contribution.


  14. Got everything running and printing!! Hurrah!!! I have two flys left in the ointment:

     

    I would like to use the option to seperate the shipping label from the tracking slip (print one on label stock, the other on plain paper). I can see how to specify it from the USPS literature, but can't tell where to enter it in this Contribution.

     

    Also, is the USPS tracking number maintained in any of the databases (so I don't even need to mess with filing the tracking slips)?

     

    Thanks,

     

    Tom

  16. Needlessly confusing? Agreed! It's baffling to me and I only figured it out because in another forum, someone mentioned having to download the earlier version and then overlaying the newer version because the revisions didn't have everything necessary to run. Who do we have to talk to???

     

    I do have a response set because I was using webconnect. Unfortunately, AN's solution is to change the settings on my account, which will kill the cart currently in use.

     

    Needless to say, best done at 2 AM!

     

    Unfortunately, I can't make the cut over yet, but can't cut over until I know everything is working.
