    Hello baddop & multimixer, It was about not being able to figure out how to down load add-ons. Because my store was still not operational, it quickly turned into about setting up a store with OS Commerce ver2.2 RC2. Specifically, Editing out the text in the center white block on the Front Page Adding information about my PayPal account so that once the Front Page is changed so that it looks like a store Ben - Thanks, I will go back and try using the information that you supplied. Be Well, GreyWolf

    I don't believe it

    Perhaps I lack the intelligence to build and operate a store as it seems you indicate. Hmmm, Where would I find a programer? I seriously doubt that I would look in the local yellow pages. As I understand it, I am not permitted to offer payment anyone here on the forum, (per the policies in place) so ..... PayPal offers an area to build PayPal buttons, though they only function on html formats, not php. But maybe this would work: 1. Create a link on the Front Page of Your Ssnctuary Gift Shop (operating with OS Commmerce) that takes the customer to a HTML page on the primary site 2. Create shoppingpage.html page on primary site with each of the items listed with an item number below a picture of the item 3. Place a note at the top of the page informing the customer to record the item number AND purchase price of each item they would like to purchase) 3. Build a PayPal button that can be place on the shoppingpage.html that I believe would link them to my PayPal account so that they can purchase the items they desire by entering the item number of each item and the price of that item. 4. To cover shipping costs I would also need the customer to enter either a NATIONAL or WORLD WIDE flat rate shipping cost AS IF IT WERE A PRODUCT and then enter the number of items purchased as the QUANTITY so as to ensure that sufficient funds are collected to pay for shipping. Ponders the situation. If I contact my host, and get a ssl I would then have encryption with my site being a https:// instead of http://, by doing that will the situation be improved? Maybe I am over thinking this, but it seems a difficult situation. Another possibility would be to open a store on eBay. Quite frankly I am wondering isn't that why I got this software? GreyWolf

    Um, because I don't have access to any of that information on my PayPal account pages. I believe for PayPal to function then OS Commerce must have a method of incorporating PayPal into it's software. Speaking of software, I received some communication from a staff member whom conveyed to me some corrections needed to be made by me. I am stymied on how to inform the staff that there seems to be a glitch in the forum software regarding the profile area, specifically Signatures. You see, there are words in the signature creation area that shouldn't be. Here are those words (in case someone else knows how to inform OS Commerce that perhaps they may want to tweak the forum software to correct this over site). ----------------------------- Signature Restrictions Your signature may contain: * Any number images * Images of any size * Any number of URLs * Any number of lines ---------------------------- Take Care and Be Well, greywolf

    Alright guys. Sheesh, are you forgetting that first I have to try crashing the Front Page? *sighs* Will do what I can as fast as I can and by the way, FYI, I sent an email to PayPal regarding the information I needed from them. That email is as follows: Hello, Here are what is needed, Enable PayPal Website Payments Standard = True Do you want to accept PayPal Website Payments Standard payments? E-Mail Address = yoursanctuarygiftshop@gmail.com The PayPal seller e-mail address to accept payments for Payment Zone .= none If a zone is selected, only enable this payment method for that zone Available choices are: none Florida Set Preparing Order Status = Preparing [PayPal Standard] Set the status of prepared orders made with this payment module to this value Available choices are: default Canceled Delivered Pending Preparing [PayPal Standard] Processing Set PayPal Acknowledged Order Status = default Set the status of orders made with this payment module to this value Available choices are: default Canceled Delivered Pending Preparing [PayPal Standard] Processing Transaction Method = SALE The processing method to use for each transaction. Available choices are: Authorization Sale Page Style = (unknown) The page style to use for the transaction procedure (defined at your PayPal Profile page) Debug E-Mail Address = yoursanctuarygiftshop@gmail.com All parameters of an Invalid IPN notification will be sent to this email address if one is entered. Enable Encrypted Web Payments Do you want to enable Encrypted Web Payments? Set to FALSE Your Private Key = (unknown) The location of your Private Key to use for signing the data.

(*.pem) PayPals Public Certificate = (unknown) The location of the PayPal Public Certificate for encrypting the data. Your PayPal Public Certificate ID = (unknown) The Certificate ID to use from your PayPal Encrypted Payment Settings Profile. Will see what they reply. Take Care and Be Well, GreyWolf

    Will do. After all I have nothing to loose this time if I have to delete and re-install again (last time I had all my inventory in and when I edited the Front Page, we got a fatal error). SOLVED for now. Be Well, GreyWolf

    Hi Ben, Thanks for replying. Rather than explaining it all, I have modified my signature. I have edited and double checked the links in my signature. Within it are the following links: The Main Portal at www.asanctuary.net The OS Commerce gift shop, and something I threw together to give an idea of what is wanted, I call it a preview. That is not the layout desired, but when I was adding inventory to the first OS Commerce, the pictures were about 700 x 700 pixels, definitely not good. I hope you will take a look to see what I mean Thank you again Be Well, GreyWolf

    Perhaps I should throw in the towel. :( I clicked on every link after reading about an add on and not one will cause a download. :angry: So how much per hour for a programmer? Couse if I recall right, they charge about $150.00/hour. :'( So with my current mark-up of $1.00 per item or 5%, I should get out of the red in about 3 years. :o GreyWolf
