    UK VAT - Zone Activated Mininum Order Amount

    If anyone else wishes to begin restricting what countries they ship to, due to the current and possibly upcoming VAT regulations, here's a list. Countries in the UK: England Scotland Wales Northern Ireland Countries in the EU: Austria Belgium Bulgaria Croatia Cyprus Czechia Denmark Estonia Finland France Germany Greece Hungary Ireland Italy Latvia Lithuania Luxembourg Malta Netherlands Poland Portugal Romania Slovakia Spain Sweden (I guess Greece never did make it out, did they?) At one time, there was an add-on that allowed quick and easy administration of the available countries through Admin. https://apps.oscommerce.com/aKZPh&active-countries Unfortunately, it has not been updated in years, and required massive core-code changes.

    UK VAT - Zone Activated Mininum Order Amount

    In that case, I guess we ALL shops outside of the UK that sell internationally will need the header-tag module (or hook) that does what @burt stated: One additional suggestion ... have the module block the check-out function if the total is less than the specified amount (adjustable in Admin). ( hint: maybe a supporter code module?) M

    @puddlec Perhaps, but then again ... Sometimes, it's easier to ask for forgiveness, than it is to ask for permission

    UK VAT - Zone Activated Mininum Order Amount

    (emphasis added) Wouldn't an online store with a shopping cart (even if based outside of the UK) be considered a "online marketplace" ? Or, am I misinterpreting this? M
  5. @Kofod When you say you are "editing an order", what do you mean? Are you changing an order status (ie: from 'processing' to 'shipped')? Or, are you actually changing the order itself (addresses, products, etc)? And yes, you should instruct your colleagues again (and again, and ...) 😀 Malcolm

    @spacegremlin What I think you are asking is, "If the site is displaying English, I want the drop-down to say "X". But, if the site is displaying Dutch, I want the drop-down to say 'Y'. Is this correct? M
  7. @zeeshop Unfortunately, JcMagpie passed away a few months ago, so he won't be able to help you.
  8. @dculley You will have to contact @burt directly. There is also this: HTH Malcolm
  9. @dculley JCM passed away a few months ago. So, as @René H4 mentioned, he will not be updating his code. And, not speaking ill of the dead, his code was often not considered 'up to standards'. If there is an alternative, such as the one @René H4 suggested, I would recommend using that. Stay Safe! Malcolm
  10. @kennethchow One last thing ... Why the need to upgrade from PHP v5? Is your host saying that they will no longer support PHP v5 (as many/most are)? How much time do you have? Malcolm
  11. @kennethchow While @Jack_mcs answered you question, I might suggest that the effort to upgrade your old site to PHP 7.x is not the best use of your time. When/if you manage to get your site running under PHP 7.x, you will basically have created your own fork of osCommerce, and no one will be able to support it but you. In addition, there are many security holes in the older versions of osC that will still remain in your site. Lastly, unless you have done some other extensive modifications to your old shop, it will not be responsive (ie: adjusting the screen display for smaller devices such as phones and tablets). Google will penalize your site for this. I strongly suggest you upgrade your shop to the newest Community Edition of osC., called Phoenix. It is not an in-place upgrade ... you will have to install it in it's own directory, and migrate your data (customers, products, sales history) over to it. If this is something you do not think you can handle, there are developers here that can do it for you. Stay Safe! Malcolm

  13. Phoenix In-house WAMP server running PHP 7.0.33. Paypal App 5.018. Both Paypal Express and Paypal Payments Pro modules installed and enabled (although I only want Paypal express, it says I need to install both). I'm rebuilding an old live shop. Testing in-house. Copied all of the API credentials from the original site. In Admin, I can get both live and sandbox balance. But, in the shop side, either clicking on the 'Check Out with Paypal' button in the shopping cart, or selecting Paypal as the payment method in checkout_payment.php, I get the above error. Happens both in live and sandbox. Suggestions? TIA Malcolm
  14. @Jack_mcs Thinking about this some more, perhaps another (better ?) option might be ... Only two shipping modules ... Flat Rate and USPS. 1) If the customer is in the US, AND the contents in his cart are only small items, use the Flat Rate module. 2) If the contents in his cart contain one or more large items, OR the customer is international, use the USPS module. Thoughts? TIA Malcolm
