  1. Just updated my 2.3.4 store to BS CE Frozen and whilst I was experimenting I accidentality clicked "Uninstall Ultimate SEO" The shop still produces the SEO URLs but the admin entry in Configuration is missing so I have no control. The configuration table has just 4 rows relating to the addon, if I delete them just those 4 return after clicking on a shop item. This worked perfectly on the old shop. Could the new shop, which has the same database as the old one with the exception of the configuration tables, be using a cache for the URLs so in fact it is not doing anything new?
  2. @BrockleyJohn 95% have two 5% have one None have three I am unsure which is normal or correct. I have no IPN errors from PayPal and non failed in the log on the PayPal site.
  3. Is two IPN responses correct as I always get 2 and everything completes correctly. PayPal app 5.018.

    Worldpay Hosted Payments extended

    On my setup it is the same as yours with these exceptions. The Shopper redirect field should be empty You should have an email address in the Payment Response failure email address field Be aware that occasionally I have instances of the cart not emptying but the payment completing OK. If non of the entries in the list has a green tick then that has probably happened. Martin

    Paypal duplicate orders

    I suspect it is a marketing ploy by PP to get you onto a platform with even higher fees. I have had my osCommerce shop since 2009 and had always had both PP (high fees) and Worldpay (a merchant account with much lower fees) as options. I had Worldpay as the first payment option and PayPal at the bottom of the list. As an experiment in February I disabled the PP APP thus removing that option. Sales have not diminished significantly and several of my regular PP customers have started using Worldpay thus saving me a significant amount in fees. PP has become the easy option as it stores the card numbers of those too lazy to enter them, but a lot of major internet traders do not offer PP as an option. Perhaps the time has come to bite the bullet and cast PP adrift, they might even lower their fees!

    I have installed this to replace an old version, it works fine but I cannot find where to alter the transaction description parameter, it does not appear in the admin section of the module. I would like to see what customers have ordered in the Worldpay email that I receive. Martin

    Paypal duplicate orders

    Yes it does. Using PayPal app 5.018 Subject and discussion of this topic is that PayPal appeared for a while to inform customers that their order was unsuccessful and that they should repeat the process. This resulted in two identical orders from the customer with different order numbers, Each of these orders produced one email, not two. The last time this happened in my shop was 19th October so hopefully PP have sorted this out now, unless anybody knows different...

    Paypal duplicate orders

    Thanks for the input Dan but they are separate orders with incrementally the next order number for the second one. I have always had that PP setting enabled. What is annoying is that although PP appear to cause this problem, when you refund the buyer for the second order PP greedily keep the 20p transaction charge for themselves. Naughty and sharp practice IMO

    Paypal duplicate orders

    I had a duplicate order on 17th October and had one a few weeks previously. Customer said that as far as he can remember PP took him back to my site and then he got a message that he had to do it again. He was unsure where that came from but I presume it could not come from my site. Both orders completed normally my end. I asked him if on the first order he had received the PP email and my stores one. He confessed that he does not look at his emails often, perhaps therein lies the clue. Modern society is obsessed with Social Media for their communications and emails may be going the way of written letters.

    Paypal payments through world pay

    If you log in to your World Pay admin, under "reports" you can run various queries. Or you can view them in your PayPal account Martin

    WorldPay Payment method

    You will need to sign up for a Worldpay Online payment Gateway account which they will then link to your business bank account. Your customers are taken to their website to pay thus reducing considerably your compliance requirements. You can create your own payment page on their website or use their generic one.
  16. How do you want them sorted, Name, value, price?

    How do I set the currency?

    Don't forget what I posted in #4

    How do I set the currency?

    Firstly GDP is not a currency so whoever set the store up has got it horribly wrong. In admin > Localisation > Currencies add GBP as a currency. Set the Exchange rate to 1 i.e. 1 GDP = 1 GBP, it should have defaulted to that Set GBP as the default currency Delete GDP only after having checked that the prices are showing correctly

    How do I set the currency?

    How is your installation set up on the Wordpay site and is your store in GBP Can you access the Worldpay admin on the Worldpay site?

    Looking for two add-ons

    Bank Transfer http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/285 Use the 10th Feb 2010 version by Fimble Works perfectly in 2.3.3.4 and does what you require. Another case of more recent add on modifications being a retrograde step

    What @@Tsimi said plus use this addon as the original Worldpay module in 2.2 will fail as it uses javascript which Worlpay now strip out http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7151

    How do I set the currency?

    I use Worldpay in the UK. I am not quite sure of your problem. Surely your store has GBP as the default currency? My overseas customers have no problem using worldpay as providing they have entered the correct country in their address worldpay will accept any currency and charge the customer the appropiate amount of Groats or whatever.
