    Discount Modules - Any Views?

    Quick question to see if anyone has views on which discount code module to use on a 2.3.4 site (not BS) Im not looking for anything fancy - just a way to give a discount code to a customer that allows a discount to be applied to the order total (after shipping and tax have been applied) eg. Subtotal £10 + Tax £2 + Shipping £3 = £15 Apply discount code of £5.00 would give an order total of £10.00 Views appreciated.

    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 2.3.3.4. I never encountered this on my 2.2Rc2a stores using paypal IPN A screenshot is below:

    Recover Cart Sale for CE

    will probably need a change to ensure you only email people who have agreed to newsletters - GDPR etc............ I stopped using recover carts for this reason.....
  4. I have noticed recently that an increasing number of customers are not having their name recorded when either logging in with paypal or checking out using paypal express. The name is captured in the Shipping Address and Billing Address but not under the Customer Address. Has something changed recently ? Im using 2.3.4 with the latest version of the paypal app and paypal express. attached is a screenshot showing the blanks from today and part of yesterday. Any ideas? Many thanks
  5. 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 not registering Customer Name

    @ruden Thank you, a couple of weeks on and your solution solved the problem
  8. This subject has got us all racing round (again) making changes to our websites to comply (or at least what we understand as complying). I seem to remember us all doing this with the cookie law..... This makes some interesting reading: http://barker.co.uk/cookielaw So lets do all we can but not get too paranoid........
  9. @puddlec Thanks for the link. A lot of my customers are old farmers who do not use the internet - so email etc is out of the question. The link ou provided gives details on recording verbal consent - which I will do in the order comments box when compiling their order. Anyone got any further comments?
  10. OK I think I am almost there, apart from one little thing that does not seem to have been covered. Scenario is that a customer places an order by phone and we then enter his order on our website (manual order maker and order editor) this allows us to produce the invoice and process his order as a normal web order - problem is that he will not have seen our privacy policy or any of our GDPR statements. The only way I can see round this is to read each customer a rather long and boring statement such as Any comments or alternative solutions would be welcome....
  11. @14steve14 Thanks for the info on the analytics opt-out tool - I have now added a link to the privacy policy to point to this. I have MATC installed at the checkout confirmation page which I point with links to the Privacy Policy and the Conditions of the website plus I have added text to the create account pages with links to our privacy policy. I also have the system set up to attach a pdf version of our terms and conditions, shipping terms and privacy policy to all customer order confirmation emails Many Thanks
  12. OK I think I have done all I need to do?? Stopped using Google Analytics and deleted the code (I dont use it much anyway) Revised my privacy statement using the examples shown here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-data-protection/privacy-notices-transparency-and-control/privacy-notices-in-practice/ Added an option in the "My Account" section for customers to delete their account Unsubscibed ALL customers from the mailing list Sent email to all customers explaining about GDPR, Giving them links to our privacy policy, delete account function and telling them how to re-subscribe if they so wish Added a mondial popup to the site informing visitors about our revised privacy policy.

    Paypal not registering Customer Name

    @ruden Thank you - I have just made the changes - will see if it solves the problem over the next few days.
  14. Im taking a more proactive / drastic approach on this.... I intend unsubscribing everyone at a database level, then sending the email informing them that if they want to receive newsletters then to re-subscribe. I will also include a link to our revised privacy policy and a link to the account deletion page.
  15. Another scenario that I have been considering is that when a customer places an order by phone - we then enter his details on our site...... Im considering having a printed statement to read out to them regarding data collection etc.
  16. I guess we are al going to have to cease using Recover Carts Modules?

    PayPal App for osCommerce Online Merchant

    I have just installed the paypal app on my 2 sites - the first one went without issue and works as it should. However, I have installed on the second site and everything works as it should in Admin. BUT when a customer tries to add something to the shopping cart (or view the cart) just a white screen is displayed. The error in my error log is: PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class paypal_express in /home/myaccount/public_html/includes/modules/payment/paypal_express.php on line 17 Line 17 of paypal_express.php is as follows: class paypal_express { Any pointers on this would be greatly appreciated as my site is essentially now losing orders. Many Thanks

    Dashboards

    @@Dan Cole More "got it working" rather than updated - it still needs work - but it works well for my purposes of keeping my eye on orders at various statuses (awaiting approval, approved, in pack, despatched, delivered together with what is on each order without having to open the order up. To me a dashboard is a screen displaying the info I want at that particular time.

    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
