  1. To All.


    I too found this mod to be of great help as I have the ability to give a dealer price so they can purchase off my site instead of directly as they wanted shipping costs immediately.


    However I had a hard time getting the checkout_confirmation page to show the discount. I install 2.8 and had to go back and add all the mods up to that point.


    What I eventually found was that in the configuration file the file name ot_discount.php was missing from the MODULE_ORDER_TOTAL_INSTALLED configuration key.





  2. is there someone out there that can help me understand the process of how the UPS module figures the costs.


    I have multiple boxes per product that need to have the costs figured per box and then added together for a total on the shipping page.


    I have a file set up that tells the weights of each box for each product. I have a function that reads the shopping cart and gets the weights for the products in the cart.


    However I can't seem to figure out where in the ups.php or shipping.php or other program where to insert the code to get the individual costs of each box. Or what function gets the cost.




  3. I really screwed up. I am trying to make a new add on or modify my programs for a shipping problem I have. I copied my files from my hosting company back to my local machine that I do my coding and testing on. I over wrote the configure.php files. I have spent 2 days trying to get it to work and I have gotten the admin to work again. However there is no shipping, order total or payment options in the configuration panel. After searching this forum I have found this thread and one other that I thought would help. However they don't. What is happening is that the values in the configuration table keeps getting overwritten by one of the modules. I suspect it is the modules.php file. The files are there but they don't show up.


    here is my admin/configure.php file



    // define our webserver variables

    // FS = Filesystem (physical)

    // WS = Webserver (virtual)

    define('HTTP_SERVER', ''); // eg, http://localhost or - https://localhost should not be NULL for productive servers

    define('HTTPS_SERVER', ''); // eg, http://localhost or - https://localhost should not be NULL for productive servers

    define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', '');

    define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', '');

    define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', '1'); // secure webserver for catalog module

    define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', ''); // where your pages are located on the server.

    define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', 'admin/');

    define('DIR_FS_ADMIN', 'admin/');

    define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '');

    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', 'secure/store/');

    define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/');

    define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'icons/');

    define('DIR_WS_CATALOG_IMAGES', 'images/');

    define('DIR_WS_INCLUDES', 'includes/');

    define('DIR_WS_BOXES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'boxes/');

    define('DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'functions/');

    define('DIR_WS_CLASSES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'classes/');

    define('DIR_WS_MODULES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'modules/');

    define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'languages/');

    define('DIR_WS_CATALOG_LANGUAGES', '../includes/languages/');

    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_LANGUAGES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'includes/languages/');

    //define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_IMAGES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'images/');

    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_IMAGES', 'images/'); // modified by dcs

    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'includes/modules/');

    define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . 'backups/');

  4. I am using the version 177 at this time and am having a similar problem. The addresses (Billing and Shipping) are not in the email the store sends me informing me that something was ordered. They do show up in the order file.


    It does NOT however add a new address to the files if it is different as I thought it did. the other thing that is a problem is that the shipping method is missing and in the database it is showing up as HTML code "<table width="100%" border="0" c"


    any ideas??

  5. I am using the paypal add-on for OSCommerece I host with Network Solutions.


    I am using the Paypal Sandbox

    I set up a user with the paypal info and others test users as well.


    When I go through the process the shipping and billing addresses from the Paypal account (different than OSCommerece account) is shown on the confirmation page. However when I receive the email from OSCommerece the addresses are blank.


    See below


    *********** beginning of email ************

    Sub-Total: $15.95

    United Parcel Service (1 x 3lbs) (Ground): $9.61

    Total: $25.56


    Delivery Address







    Billing Address







    Payment Method


     The safer, easier way to pay


    *********** end of email ******************


    As you can see the "Payment Method" is also blank


    Checking the test (Sandbox account) in Paypal shows the transactions as being correct.


    Does anybody have and suggestions? I have looked at several programs of the package to try to isolate the problem but have not been successful.

  6. Is there a method or add/on to have multiple boxes and weights for 1 product.


    I have products that need to be put together/assembled and the boxes are of different weights and sizes.


    I think I am going to build a shipping box table and get the weights from it. However the main problem will be getting the ups or fedex costs on each box.


    I could build a table of ups zones and determine the costs from the table. Those tables are available from UPS



    Any suggestions.

  7. What paypal build/version is the most current. I downloaded what I thought was the most current version. it turns out the version says 177 and I see that there are some that are 181.


    I down loaded it from the paypal site last week.


    I also am having the problem that the addresses both shipping and billing are not showing up in the email sent to the store owner and customer for conformation.
