    Shipping cost not showing on Pay Pal

    I'm confused, did you use a mod or did you hand mod it yourself? I'm not advanced to figure out the mods from scratch myself, but I can handle applying an existing mod... I just don't know which one to use that will work?

    Shipping cost not showing on Pay Pal

    I have never been able to get this to work correctly, and I don't even see how it can? When you click the express checkout button from the shopping cart it takes you directly to Paypal.... so how can a customer ever select their shipping method?? I have been messing with this for months, and even managed to break the site so badly trying different modules in the hopes of fixing it that i had to do a fresh install. I've searched the boards and I find a lot of people who have asked similar paypal questions who just haven't gotten a response. Surely people have this working, so I am very confused :( http://discountwitch.com/store/

    One Page Checkout Support

    I followed the installation instructions, and everything seemed fine. I checked the site right before doing the database queries and the only thing that was funky was that my paypal express button had disappeared. So I copied, pasted, and executed the database queries using phpmyadmin, and now I can't access my site or backend at all I've never actually run a database query before, but it seemed super easy when I did it I don't see how I could have done anything wrong? It was just paste, and press go. I used the backup I created from my Cpanel and clicked restore tables, and it still shows the same error message? Any clues?

    Easy Populate & Products Attributes

    Fabulous contribution!! I have a supplier that adds new items frequently, at least once a week, and updates their stock values daily. I currently spend many hours comparing their spreadsheet to mine, then copying the updated info into mine. So I was thinking that if I could just upload the stock values to update the quantities it would save me the time of the process I use now, and if I could have a default category that new items would automatically default to I could handle those separately after doing the update. I have two questions: 1. Which headers need to be in the upload in order for it to work? For example, if I wanted to change the quantities on a set of items could I upload the file with just the v_products_model, v_products_quantity, and EOREOR columns or would this cause an error? 2. Is there a way to set a default category that items would default to if a category was not assigned during upload?

    ULTIMATE Seo Urls 5 - by FWR Media

    I installed this and thought it was working fine. After moving on with my customizations for my site, I discovered my search box wasn't working. I would get the following message when I attempted to search After some help from kymation on the forums, and some searching on my own, I discovered that the only time I had modified the product_listing.php file was during the install of the SEO URLs 5 add on. So I replaced the misbehaving line with the original then changed to The site can now search again, but this shows up on the right side when I perform the search Any thoughts?

    Usps module

    Try this page http://www.usps.com/webtools/htm/Development-Guide-v3-0b.htm#_Toc205879397, it has step by step instructions and working links. The actual sign up page is here https://secure.shippingapis.com/registration/. Just an FYI, the sign up form has an option to use this account for more than one website, according to USPS documentation and the guy I spoke to on the phone about it, this is not the case. If you run multiple sites you must request an id for each site. Additionally, once you install the module be sure to contact USPS back and have request activation of the production server. You can reach them by calling 800-344-7779 and selecting option 3. Hope this helps you! ~Sandy
