    inflated delivery costs!

    Chris - you're a star! Thank you for your help. That was it! Mind you - it seems to still be 30 to 50p more than what my spreadsheet is showing, but i dont think that should matter. You've been a great help. Thanks again :)

    inflated delivery costs!

    Hi everybody i have just installed the Royal Mail international and european shipping module. I am having problems with the postage rates at the checkout stage. They seem to be over-inflated. In the admin area of my store - under the European Option, I entered the following string: 0.01:1.24,0.02:1.24,0.04:1.24,0.06:1.24,0.08:1.24,0.1:1.24................etc etc For some reason, it gives a high value for delivery on a product which weighs 250 grams (entered 0.25 within the product listing). This high delivery cost doesn't correlate with the entered rates from above. This also happened when I tried to install the UK 1st Class option. The delivery rates seem to be over-priced. Where am I going wrong?? What do I need to change in order to get this to comply?

    ERRORS! Please help...

    Thanks Chris I've double checked and I'm pretty sure that I've uploaded to the correct directory. I literally went into the Catalogue folder of the download and uploaded the folders that I could see, straight into the root of my store folder, via Filezilla. I then also uploaded these folders into my admin area just incase aswell... its still listing all those errors. They seem to revolve around line 131 of that modules.php file? Does some type of code need to be inserted? Does something need to be defined? Please feel free to offer alternative advice thanks again

    Easy Meta tags

    Hi there, I downloaded the Easy Meta tags 1.7 and installed "very easy v1-2-4" and followed the instructions... I replaced <title><?php echo TITLE; ?></title> with <?php include(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'easy_meta_tags.php'); ?> in index.php, product_info.php and product_reviews_info.php I then added (in index.php) : <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=<?php echo CHARSET; ?>"> <title>WEBSITE NAME|BRAND NAME|BRAND NAME|BRAND NAME|</title> <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en"> <meta name="description" content="DESCRIPTION OF MY WEBSITE AND THE STUFF I SELL"> <meta name="keywords" content="KEYWORDS RELATED TO THE STUFF I SELL"> </head> <?php include(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'easy_meta_tags.php'); ?> i found that the "title" of my website changed to the desired "WEBSITE NAME|BRAND NAME|BRAND NAME|BRAND NAME - mozilla", whereas before it was simply just "website name -mozilla firefox" The problem that i have is that i can't see the description or the keyword content that i added ... is the above way correct or not? what do i need to enter for my decription + keywords to show up on my website? I'm quite a stuck newbie, so any help would be much appreciated. many thanks.

    Paypal checkout problem

    just read this whole thread... I was having a lot of trouble with my checkout values not being forwarded to paypal so i tried a few things suggested by the clever folks here, and seems to be working alright now - which i'm over the moon about!! I still have the problem though, and that is of not being able to see the item description in the checkout process (it just states my website's name) or the actual quantity of items ordered (its stuck on 1 for quantity). Anyone know how i can solve this issue??
  14. i have oscommerce 2.2 ms2 and the ordinary paypal version...
  15. Hiya everyone! When I add items to my basket and then go to checkout, choosing paypal as the payment method - the values of the item & postage do not show up at all, all there is 0.00?! Also, the real quantity of items does not show either nor does the title / descriptions of the items. Instead, it asks the customer to enter a value - like, pay whatever you like!! :blink: How can I get the values from the basket transferred over to the paypal payment stage, along with the items' titles? Any help would be really appreciated!! Thank you.
