    AIM and SIM have reached End of Life

    I am canvassing the support (as opposed to demand) for a phoenix module and have done some preliminary scoping. It is pencilled on this year's list of things to do if I think it's worth it (ie if I'll get paid for them:) AIM is still only deprecated with no end of life date announced, so no need to panic just yet.
  2. That's only a bug if the order is recorded in your store but the payment is not taken. Otherwise it's just how it works.

    OSC 2.3.1 how to fix paypal express checkout

    Lets start with: what exactly are the errors it shows?

    UK VAT - Zone Activated Mininum Order Amount

    https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/sites/taxation/files/vatecommerceexplanatory_28102020_en.pdf (July - limit 150 euros for the products bit)

    UK VAT - Zone Activated Mininum Order Amount

    OK - yes - total value of products in the consignment (not including VAT either). Plus if you're shipping from the EU there's a bunch of new extra paperwork.

    UK VAT - Zone Activated Mininum Order Amount

    I don't think anyone has it figured out - including the respective governments! There's extra complication because some of the UK is sort of still in the EU - and maybe the 70k threshold still applies only to selling from the EU into Northern Ireland rather than the rest of the UK, which was the context of the last conversation that I had about this. This is the main landing page for EU businesses for changes due to brexit: https://www.gov.uk/eubusiness If I read the following page correctly, it means that if you sell orders under £135 into UK then the new system will be that you collect the VAT and account for it with the UK. It is supposed to be moving from the existing system of collecting the VAT on entry to the country to a system where it is collected at the time of sale. Once this system is active it will apply equally to EU and non-EU merchants who are not selling through a marketplace. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/changes-to-vat-treatment-of-overseas-goods-sold-to-customers-from-1-january-2021/changes-to-vat-treatment-of-overseas-goods-sold-to-customers-from-1-january-2021 If this were organised sensibly, your UK tax registrations and payments will be handled through your local tax handling rather than directly with UK tax authorities, but I have no faith that the practice will be sensible!!

    UK VAT - Zone Activated Mininum Order Amount

    If you are selling into UK from outside the EU, the VAT rules have not changed for you. Only EU businesses selling directly to consumers in UK and selling more than £70k goods into UK per year need to make changes, otherwise they continue to charge tax at their local rate and account for it locally (unless they choose to register for UK VAT).

    Order sometimes disappear from admin/orders.php

    This is a perennial intermittent problem. Sometimes you get a glitch during saving the order and the order status gets set to zero. When there's no matching status value the orders disappear from the list. The easiest workaround is: - create a new order status with a name that's meaningful to you (e.g. "Error - reset manually") - use phpmyadmin to edit the record for your new status in the orders_status table and update the value of orders_status_id to 0 (zero) hey presto - they magically appear in the list. The next time it happens, the order will still be visible

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    I am afraid that I don't know! We did do some bug fixing around shipping calculations and their tax in the spring. This may have had some impact on other order total modules such as discounts, but I didn't investigate the behaviour. If you can try the latest version and report back specifically what doesn't work if it's still wrong, I can have a look for the cause.

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    yeah, probably v1.2.8 which is when core changes were no longer required

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    Long overdue - I have uploaded a new version of the addon to https://apps.oscommerce.com/Apps&wwEZ9&order-editor-for2-3-v1-0 which includes all the fixes posted to the thread through this year. It installs on Phoenix offering full functionality without core modifications. Many of the php notices and warnings have been fixed. A little adaptation for customer data modules has been applied so that it doesn't throw warnings or offer the fields if you don't have modules like suburb installed but not all are handled (eg. state) - you can extend along the same lines if required. A future version could use the new modules properly, along with the rationalisation and autoloading of classes but that will involve an extensive redesign that might end up being a different addon altogether.

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    There are no core code changes required on any Phoenix version since

    No button on Order Confirmation page

    PP standard using the app? Which version of phoenix?

    ship2pay for 2.3.x

    Plan would be putting it over strongly - I have been thinking it could do with revisiting now for all the changes in checkout. It could probably do with a redesign now that there are hooks all over the place - and maybe for the newly abstracted shipping & payment modules. And of course a bootstrapped admin page. seems like you've got an interim solution though

    Paypal FUBAR

    I'm guessing from the reference to the account balance that you're using the paypal app with pp standard. Do you get anything in the paypal log for IPNs or notify_sync?
