    Payment methods

    Any intention of adding Barclays EPDQ to the list?
  2. Gives the ability to create new customer accounts from the admin area. The Customer then receives an e-mail with randomly created password Gives the ability to manually create an order for a customer via admin. Invaluable for entering telephone orders onto your OSC Site. From 2 seperate 2.2 contributions - all credit to the original authors. Needs Order Editor to be installed for this to work, Download at: http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/7844/v,23 Yhe code could do with cleaning up to comply with 2.3.1 standards - but it works on my site, I wrote the install after I had actually installed, apologies if it contains errors.

    Paypal / OSC Rounding Totals

    Hi, I have noticed a bit of an anomaly sometimes when customers use paypal to check out. The order comments come back that the order value does not match the payment total - this is only ever by £0.01, but never the less its quite annoying - all I can think is that its something to do with rounding. I am using stock Paypal Standard module and my checkout process as far as this is concerned is also standard osc I never encountered this on my 2.2Rc2a stores using paypal IPN A screenshot is below:

    Google XML Sitemap SEO

    Hi Jack, Couldnt find anything on this during a quick scan of the previous pages. I have just added .htaccess code to my site to redirect the whole site to SSL as per post #9 of this thread: http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/410451-time-to-get-secure-if-you-havent-already/ When I generate a new sitemap it generates the links as HTTP - is there a way I can change the sitemap so it will generate all links as HTTPS ? Many Thanks

    [CONTRIBUTION] Sloppy Words Cleaner

    Installed the latest version (21 Nov 2015 by @@raiwa) and its working great - thank you :) I would like to take this a step further as follows: I use Create account and Manual order maker, to allow me to input telephone orders, counter sales, and transfer over ebay sales for invoicing etc. In a lot of instances this involves cutting and pasting address, name etc. This mod has its own create_account.php located in the admin folder, which links to an admin/create_account_process.php Im pretty sure that this can be modified in a similar way to the catalog/create_account.php without much effort. My question is will I also need to add the file account_word_cleaner.php to the functions folder within admin. Many Thanks

    Header Tags SEO

    @@Jack_mcs Hi Jack, Spending some time trying to boost my SEO, and have noticed something: I have added Header Tags Categories Description to my categories (the large box at the bottom) and it only appears on the lowest level category and not its parents - where is the code located that adds this below the category titles? as I may have accidently removed it when carrying out changes to my site. eg: Home Page Category: Clothing (does not show) Child Category: Mens (does not show) Grandchild: Trousers (Description shows) Many Thanks
  18. @@Dan Cole Im actually using PP Express without the app - as the app seems to have teething problems, and nobody is answering support threads on the app - its @Haralds baby and he isnt around much these days. I have noticed a sharp rise in the number of people checking out with paypal rather than my card system since the facility for login with paypal and instant update were enabled.
  19. Paypal standard should not skip the usual OSC checkout process. Also I think the Paypal App brings the buyer back to the site to confirm the purchase even when using PP Express.
  20. Spent an hour on the phone to the adwords people - great service and they gave me some great tips - now converting even more :)

      Good for you. I can't say the same for the G consultant I had spoken with in the US. I thought they only called to ask me to increase my spending. I addressed them a question that I am concerned of the increase of bounce rate as my spending increases as I can imagine bounce rate could play a part in the overall ranking? No answer. They have out of the can answers such as you landing page has issues. Nope, I like to tell them to start sending me real customers. They have "big data"...

      Have you tried FB yet? I can't get anyone on the phone for the life of me... But the cost of conversion is OMG so much less than G
