  1. Shouldn't there also be tax rates for the HST-15 zone? And separate shipping rates for HST-15 and HST-12? I'm having issues with a book store that now wants to sell some DVDs. Creating separate tax rates depending on where the purchaser lives is causing me serious headaches.

    Let me see if I can walk you though it....here is what I did:



    Set up GST Zone for those Provinces where you'll just collect GST.

    Set up HST-12 Zone for BC

    Set Up HST-13 Zone for ON, NL and NB

    Set Up HST-15 Zone for NS


    Add each of the Provinces to the appropriate Zones. Each province will fit into one zone only. For example don't add BC to both GST and HST just HST.



    Set up your tax classes....I have one for Books, Shipping and Taxable Products. 3 in total.



    Set up the appropriate TAX RATES for each TAX ZONE and TAX CLASS....here is an example of how I set mine up...


    1...... Shipping....... Canada GST Zone........ 5%

    1...... Books.......... HST-13................. 5%

    1...... Books.......... HST-12................. 5%

    1...... Taxable........ Canada GST Zone........ 5%

    1...... Books.......... Canada GST Zone........ 5%

    1...... Shipping....... HST-13................. 13%

    1...... Taxable........ HST-13................. 13%

    1...... Taxable........ HST-12................. 12%


    Give that a try and let me know how you make out...dan


    Please note the Canada PST only zone which I would like to marry to the "GST Class Taxable Goods " class for items like books or childrens clothes.


    I'll add more later.




    Hey Rick,

    Incredible work! I've been struggling with this beast on and off for about a year now. How did you ultimately configure the Canada PST zone? I manage an e-store that sells books and DVDs.


    I'd also be curious to know how you breakout taxes on shipping or if you simply calculate the HST on the total once everything is added up.


    You (and Dan Cole) have given me hope!

  3. Just installed SiteMonitor on my 2.3.1 installation.


    I get this error when I try to update:


    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 666 bytes) in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/xxxx/admin/includes/functions/sitemonitor_functions.php on line 416


    Should I be talking to my web host?


    Any help would be appreciated.

  4. I've installed the latest version of Site Monitor on my 2.3.1 site as per the instructions but get the following when I try to configure:





    Internal Server Error


    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.


    Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@xxx.xxx and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.


    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.


    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.





    Any ideas? I'm running a fairly clean site. Very few contributions/modules aside from Security Pro, PayPal IPN, CDN Tax Order and Store Pickup.

  5. Did you manage to find a work around for your problem? I'm using the Table Rate method for shipping and even though I've set up the module to charge $10.00 for anything at 1 lb. it insists on charging the cost I've entered for 2 lbs.

  6. IPN seems, to be working, but aside from my confusion about Order Status. I'm getting the following text on the "Order Information" page. It repeats under the delivery and billing address titles.


    Warning: htmlspecialchars() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home/dcdc6815/public_html/shopdcd/includes/functions/general.php on line 42


    Any thoughts?

  7. I've got it working! The code edits in the "help" file that came with the install did the trick. Now I need to decipher the whole Order Status quagmire. Anyone able to give me what my setting should be here? Ideally, I want to confirm shipping and billing address before the order is packaged and sent out.





    Tried setting accidental payments to NO but no change. Doesn't appear to be an ID issue.

  8. I've installed the Paypal IPN module, v2.3.4.5. The purchase process (in sandbox) seems to work fine up until I'm asked by Paypal to click on the "Pay Now " button. The following message appears:


    Return to Merchant

    This invoice has already been paid. For more information, please contact the merchant.


    Not sure what I'm doing wrong here. All my settings are exactly as laid out in the install instructions. No shipping calculations, Auto Return "off". May be a possible cURL issue? Not sure if host supports this and don't really know where to go to find out.


    Any help would be appreciated. :blush:
