    New task for order editor

    I think the order editor tool is great but if you can't get the payment modules & shipping modules integrated so that the admin can process payment, then an invoice should be generated that can be emailed to the customer so that they can pay the difference (if required).

Has anybody found a merchant account/payment processor that will a non-US customer to initiate a wire/bank transfer online? What about sending payment via their bank account (like an eCheck)?

    QBI Quickbooks Import

    Hi Adam, I am still a little confused.. My question earlier was: I record all sales paid for with a credit card as a sales receipt/not an invoice and our osC order numbers are not in sync with our Sale No. as we use QB to record all sales (not just on osC). Is their anyway for the import to find the next available sales receipt number? Your response: I suspect that QB's behaviour is a bug, but in this case it looks like it will do exactly what you want. For sales receipts, they will always be sequencially numbered, whether done offline in QB or imported from the iif. But since the Sales Reciept number doesn't match the Order number in osC, I've made QBI add the order number a a comment line on the invoice, so you know what osC order it goes with. Thanks, Adam Right now I am manually entering all the sales data from osC into QB so when I open sales receipts it automatically brings me to the newest (next available) sales receipt .. What about this? Could I somehow tell your import tool what sales receipt number to use when it creates the IIF file? Have you heard of a company called BigRedConsulting? They offer an excel plug-in tool that allows me to download sales from PayPal and import via IIF into QB.. It's very basic and doesn't handle multiple items that are paid for together well but they offer a free trial so you might want to check it out.. Once you have the tool/plug in installed, you open a blank document in excel, click import from PayPal and you see a small interface that allows you to update your QB lists but also lets you enter the Sales Receipt number.. Please let me know if this makes sense of if you need any clarification.. Thanks..

    NY Sales Tax Headache

    Hi.. I also sell & ship out of New York state and because the NYS tax rates are such a disaster and the tax dept. does not provide any help to online merchants, we decided to only collect one rate (for us the NYC rate of 8.625% which is the highest). The real issue is this.. New York State has about 60+ counties and each county has a different rate. You can't use the zip code of the shipping address to accurately report/collect sales tax as some counties have multiple zip codes so the only 2 options I see are: 1) add a county dropdown box to your checkout and allow the buyer to select the county 2) build a database with all of the counties (the tax dept. has a pdf available which lists all of the counties) but after looking at it (and speaking to a rep at the tax dept.) it still doesn't seem foolproof. The problem I see with option 1 is that if the buyer is not from New York State (maybe they are sending a gift) they will not know the county for the shipping address so you will probably loose the sale.. I don't know of any online store in New York State that is collecting tax accurately at this point.. HOpe this helps..

    QBI Quickbooks Import

    Hi Adam, I haven't installed the contribution yet as I have two quick questions.. 1) How does QBI know which sales have already been imported so you don't record a sale twice? 2) I record all sales paid for with a credit card as a sales receipt/not an invoice and our osC order numbers are not in sync with our Sale No. as we use QB to record all sales (not just on osC). Is their anyway for the import to find the next available sales receipt number? Maybe I customized my sales receipt (it's been awhile so I don't really remember) but on the sales receipt I have the following 3 boxes below the Date & Sale No. Check No., Payment Method and Order No. I use the last box (Order No.) to record the osC order number. Will I be able to use this? Thanks. Stacie

    Authorize.net not setting cc_type, etc in ORDERS

    does that mean if you use Authorize.net, you can't store the credit card type (Visa, MasterCard, AmEx or Discover) in your order.php page? If you click on an order, you see the Order #, Order Date & Time & Payment Method.. Is it possible to have the CC Type appear under Payment Method?

    How does Bank Transfer Work?

    Can an option be easily added to the My Account section/order history so a customer can login and enter in the bank transfer confirmation number and a few details: date of transfer, total amount, etc.. and then the admin would be notified of the new info?

    NEW! Complete Order Editing Tool!

    This contribution sounds great but is there any way to create an invoice that can be emailed to a customer if changes are made and additional fees need to be collected? Say they originally paid $50.00 and they are exchanging for a new item that is $25.00 more and we need to collect the additional fees. It would be great if we could email them an invoice and they could pay it through your checkout.. Think this is possible?

    Recover Cart Sales

    Has anybody taken a shot at fixing some of the bugs in the recover cart report? The tool part is working great - e-mails are sent out and I had a customer make a purchase the other day after receiving the email but the report isn't working. It looks like it's examining records but that recovered cart/sale is not appearing on the report... Any ideas on how to fix this?
