  1. Make sure that:


    1. You send a session id to HSBC. "Force Cookie Use" should be turned off if you use HSBC.

    2. When tesing make sure that the total purchase price, including postage, is less than 50 pence.

    3. If your site uses a template it's likely that the session id may get lost before checkout_confirmation, so do a "View Source" to make sure the session id is present

    4. If your server is based outside of the UK then the server time zone will be wrong, and the code need to be adjusted for it. One hour, plus or minus GMT is all that HSBC will accept.



  2. The RC versions of osCommerce are Register Globals and Register Long Arrays 'off' compatible, due to a compatibility layer fix. PHP 6 will also have Magic Quotes 'off' and I'm not sure yet how that will affect the RC versions of osCommerce.


    MySQL 6 is already released.



  3. osCommerce MS3, Alpha 4, is not a production release and it certainly does not include a Gift Voucher capability.


    MS2 can have those abilities added to it, but it is very old now and showing its age.


    As to whether there will be an Alpha 5 and 6 - your guess is as good as anyones.



  4. I have to approve this account before they can login


    That's correct. All new customers are assigned to the Retail Group by default, but they can make an application to become a wholesaler when creating an account. You get notified of this application and you then have to approve it.


    If your site is wholesale only then set up a Wholesale Group and make that the default for new customer sign-ups.



  5. I'm guessing that you have an old .htaccess file in the 'admin' folder of your site which was used to password protect the admin folder on the old server your site was on, and that this is what is causing the Internal Server error.


    Go to your web hosting control panel and use the Password Protect or Directory Protect link to apply new password protection to your 'admin' folder and it should overwrite any old .htaccess file.



  6. <?php
    for ($i=0, $n=sizeof($languages); $i<$n; $i++) {
    		<td class="main"><?php if ($i == 0) echo TEXT_PRODUCTS_NAME; ?></td>
    		<td class="main"><?php echo tep_image(DIR_WS_CATALOG_LANGUAGES . $languages[$i]['directory'] . '/images/' . $languages[$i]['image'], $languages[$i]['name']) . ' ' . tep_draw_input_field('products_name[' . $languages[$i]['id'] . ']', (isset($products_name[$languages[$i]['id']]) ? stripslashes($products_name[$languages[$i]['id']]) : tep_get_products_name($pInfo->products_id, $languages[$i]['id']))); ?></td>



  7. In the default osCommerce there is a "Per Item" shipping module.


    You set a price per item and the shipping charged will be based on the number of items in the shopping basket.


    No need to install another module or to use workarounds for something that already xists.



    I'm trying to look for a contribution that is able to give shipping cost according to the no. of items purchase..but couldn't find it...

    would anyone has any idea?


    please let me know...appreciate all ur help.


  8. What you have to realise is that Amazon spends Mega Millions on developing their website, with a team of highly motivated and very professional coders.


    Far too many people come here expecting to be able to replicate that experience on their osCommerce website for free.


    So the answer is - "Yes, if you've got the money to spend then it can be custom coded", otherwise the answer is "No".


    "Limited PHP Knowledge" won't allow you to modify the Wish List add-on, which isn't very good anyway.



  9. The problem is with Pay Pal. They updated their systems around a week ago, and being a USA firm they only checked it was working for US Dollars. Transactions in other currencies are failing left, right and centre.


    They are aware of the problem and working on it - but as to when they resolve it, your guess is as good as mine.


    They messed up big time!



  10. I am working on this site for my client


    Should you be taking on a "client" when you don't know the basic shipping modules?


    1. Flat Rate shipping module = one rate for each full order (not per item)


    2. Per Item shipping module = a flat rate charge per item irrespective of weight.


    Both are standard osCommerce shipping modules and are found under Modules -->Shipping in osCommerce admin.



  11. Yes, there is one. It's rather old and I can't remember the name of it now, but what it does is to provide three boxes with drop downs in them e.g.


    1. In first box select car make.

    2. Then is second box the drop down is populated with car models you can choose from, but only from that make.

    3. Then in third box you get a drop down with years in which that model was made.

    4. Click on one of those and you get an Advanced Search result limited to the pre-selection.


    You'll have to search for it though.



  12. If you get your Internet Merchant ID from Barclays Bank then it's likely that the server your site is on will have to pass a PCI Security Scan, which you have to pay for - even if you don't store card details on your site. Barclays are now requiring this of customers with Internet Merchant ID's.



  13. But My client wants to HTTPS path for whole site


    Then you have a fool for a client.


    Google, like it or not, is the most important search engine, and they do not give Page Rankings to https pages. So by making the whole site https your client is damaging their business.


    On top of that https pages take longer to load and place more strain on the server because of the extra work required.
