  1. Thanks @Malcom and @@rpdesign for your answers! Looking forward to having shipping tables for guests as that's how we want to sell - we will want the customer to create an account to follow their order status and capture their contact data (we're not using the newsletter/email engine on OSC) but only after they make the purchase. The thought is get them to buy first and not let signing up for anything before the sale is completed become a deterrent in making the sale.
  2. Howdy @@rpdesign! I'm running 2.3.4 with Better Checkout. I did the install from ver 1.85 and then ran upgrades for 1.851 and 1.852. It took me a bit to figure out where the sql files were from that point but I discovered that I had to get them from an earlier version and then run update1.5 and update 1.8. (there's no mention of importing the SQL files in your documentation, btw... grrrrrr) There's a problem with Step 5, which says The problem is that there's no DIR_WS_BOXES in the column_left.php file. In fact, the string require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'modules.php'); exists no where in OSC 2.3.4 so the person installing the add-on has no idea what to do at this point. Perhaps something is different with 2.3.4 (if so, it needs to be mentioned in the install) because after skipping 5 and 6 (not running PayPal) and installing the module, the box in the left column appears within the admin area. I've ran the .sql files I have but there's now this problem, as @Malcom pointed out previously. Am lost at this point. Is there a .sql file that should be imported that I am missing? Is it something from an earlier build that didn't get included with the Full Package on 1.85? Does anyone have a copy of this SQL that I can import? If you need more info, let me know. Thanks, Chris

    Cross Sell for 2.3.1 (X-Sell)

    Thanks to @@Snoopy10 for creating and @@Mort_lemur for carrying on with this add-on. I've got two issues which may be minor. a) images within the admin module are broken. Image URL is pointing to admin/images where my images are in /images. I've done the changes that @@Mort_lemur referenced to in her post with regards to changing DIR_WS_IMAGES_THUMBS to read DIR_WS_IMAGES I've also removed all instances of p.image_display and p.image_folder. b) I need to be able to place the x-sell prompts/offers between checkout_shipping.php and checkout_confirmation.php - how can I do this?

    I want to skip "What's In Your Cart"

    Thank you kindly!
  5. Hi all, My store flow is simple - one item that is presented on the home page. Click on "Buy Now" and go straight to checkout and BYPASS (skip, pass, etc.) shopping_cart.php. There's no reason for the customer to review their purchase until after they enter their billing and shipping info. The customer MAY in the future be presented with upsell, downsell, x-sell (cross sell) items after the checkout_shipping page. I did get Better Checkout to present the billing and shipping info on one page and allow the customer to register with the site only if they want to. Basically it's "Show them the product, get the billing and shipping info, offer upgrades, review purchase and then finish" Does anyone have any idea on how to pass the shopping_cart.php page? Or combine the shopping_cart.php and checkout_shipping.php pages and hide the "What's In Your Cart?" portion so the desired product id is passed on from "Buy Now"? Thanks, Chris

    So are you not going to be creating a newer version? Until you said something, I did not know you were no longer answering questions (aka supporting) about a script you had written.
  7. This is in regards to http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/9142 Under Modules -> Orders, I have the following: "Login without Account Form" which is marked as FALSE for enabled. "Login Form" which is marked as FALSE for enabled. "Create Account Link" which is marked as FALSE for enabled. When I click on Checkout in my store, I am taken to /login.php where I see "Welcome, Please Sign In" and there's no button to continue and no boxes to fill out. So I go to "Login without Account Form" in Modules -> Orders and mark it as TRUE. I now get the following on /login.php: Purchase without account Your introduction text....Change in includes/languages/english/modules/content/login/cm_pwa_login.php and now I have a Continue button.. which takes me to account_pwa.php which asks me for my personal data. What I want to do is allow the customer to buy as a guest (hence "Purchase Without Account") but it looks like you have to have an account this way. I'm baffled. (and I did all steps in the instructions text file including the Optional (thankfully I saw that step 2.4 was after the Optional information but it looks like it's part of Optional so it's easily skipable). Shouldn't my customers be able to go from Cart to Checkout without creating an account using this Add-On?

    Guest Checkout options for v2.3.3 ?

    Howdy and thanks for replying! We would be taking billing and shipping info along with credit card info but we want to avoid making the customer create an account but checkout as a guest (for lack of a better term). I clicked on the link that you had for bettercheckout.com/demo but I get a 4.0.3. Site at bettercheckout.com works ok but doesn't say 2.3.4 (probably needs updating if 2.3.4 is supported). It looks like there has been installment add-ons in the past but have not been updated in a very long time but then again I could be using different terminology when searching the add-ons. Upsell would be an add-on and I pretty much figured I wouldn't find a one-stop solution to everything (a guy can dream, right?) so I've posted a message on Gergery's upsell forum topic. That was last week and haven't heard back but then again it's not paid code support so... I looked at http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8852 but the customer is not going to have a store - just one item that's being pitched with a buy now link which will take them to the checkout page. Sounds like I will have to put my initial site page within the OSC system to have a link to the desired product - was thinking at first I could create just a normal PHP page and make my graphical Buy Now button go to the item in the OSC system

    Guest Checkout options for v2.3.3 ?

    Hey Joli, I took a look at Better Checkout after posting my desired site flow (http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/398177-add-on-guidance-for-osc-234-desired-site-flow-pwa-upsell/) but I see it's for (I'm using 2.3.4) so I don't know if it's gonna work for me. There's still the matter of upsell implementation in the flow that I don't see as part of Better Checkout. Need to avoid account creation completely (yes, even at the end of the checkout process). We also choose the shipping method here so it's out of the hands of the customer (we charge a set S&H rate). Also need to be able to do payment installments (1/3rd at checkout PLUS S&H, 1/3rd in 1 month and 1/3rd in 2 months) I'm posting this here as part of the PWA thread because PWA is part of my desired site flow and you've posted here (is there a Better Checkout forum or not because it's a commercial product?)

    One Page Checkout Support

    Last version for a One Page Checkout system is for 2.3.1 and we're on 2.3.4 now. Anyone able to get a OPC to work on 2.3.4 and if so did you need to do any changes to the code?
  11. Hi everyone, I've got 2.3.4 installed with no previous versions on the server. I've installed PWA for 2.3.4, Upsell and Add More Fields but have had problems with each. I've posted questions to the developers of Upsell and Add More Fields and gotten a response from Add More Fields... have not posted yet about PWA but have had problems getting it to do what I want.| I thought I would ask for some guidance for what I need to do - I can edit code and things like that but I want to make sure I know what parts I need to download for 2.3.4 and what's not been updated yet. Here's my desired site flow (using an Apple as the item example): Home (one product only with order now button) Cart checkout page with current order total, payment and billing info fields for customer to fill out. Is shipping address different question asked (if yes, a shipping info box is shown) Upsells are presented to customer (preferably in ajax to reduce number of page loads. Only one upsell at a time is presented. There's 4 - 5 upsells (not just one) with the ability to order quantity of each per item. (Apple corer you can add with yes or no, polishing towel you can select the number that you want to add to your order) Secure checkout page with totals listed (qty, price (apple is paid for in X installments), S&P and total). Shipping, Billing and Payment info are also on the same page with payment dates (since the Apple is being billed at 33 cents today, 33 cents in one month and 33 cents in two months) After order confirmed page is displayed, a pop-up to take the customer to the Apple Eaters of America club is presented. Membership is only for those that have bought the Apple, is not charged for and is just an enrollment page. That is a separate item from OSC and is just listed as part of the site flow. Here's what is happening currently.... Home (order now button) What's in my cart page shown Sign-in page (I am having problems with PWA) Create Account page Account Created confirmation page Delivery info and shipping choices are displayed Payment info is displayed Order confirmation Order completed / processed Is my desired site flow capable? Customers do not need to create an account (less steps the better!) and I want to make it as painless as possible. Thanks, Chris

    Add More Fields

    Thanks Jack. I will hammer at it for now to see if I can get it to work.

    Add More Fields

    Hi Jack, I've downloaded your version that's last been updated Oct 24, 2011 from http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/8073 I'm running 2.3.4 and am running into the same issues as outlined earlier where code was missing and so to skip it. Has there been a version released since the Oct. 24 2011 version? If so - where is it? If not, what needs to be changed from that release to work with the latest version of OSC. As I said - I know that these may have been asked before but that was 2 - 3 years ago and versions have been changed since then. } elseif (tep_not_null($HTTP_POST_VARS)) { $pInfo->objectInfo($HTTP_POST_VARS); $products_name = $HTTP_POST_VARS['products_name']; $products_description = $HTTP_POST_VARS['products_description']; $products_url = $HTTP_POST_VARS['products_url']; I take it we skip the above code? } elseif ($action == 'new_product_preview') { if (tep_not_null($HTTP_POST_VARS)) { $pInfo = new objectInfo($HTTP_POST_VARS); $products_name = $HTTP_POST_VARS['products_name']; $products_description = $HTTP_POST_VARS['products_description']; $products_url = $HTTP_POST_VARS['products_url']; } else { $product_query = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, pd.language_id, pd.products_name, pd.products_description, pd.products_url, p.products_quantity, p.products_model, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_weight, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, p.products_date_available, p.products_status, p.manufacturers_id from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p, " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd where p.products_id = pd.products_id and p.products_id = '" . (int)$HTTP_GET_VARS['pID'] . "'"); Can't be found in 2.3.4 - DO WE SKIP THIS? Closest thing I have found is: } elseif ($action == 'new_product_preview') { $product_query = tep_db_query("select p.products_id, pd.language_id, pd.products_name, pd.products_description, pd.products_url, p.products_quantity, p.products_model, p.products_image, p.products_price, p.products_weight, p.products_date_added, p.products_last_modified, p.products_date_available, p.products_status, p.manufacturers_id from " . TABLE_PRODUCTS . " p, " . TABLE_PRODUCTS_DESCRIPTION . " pd where p.products_id = pd.products_id and p.products_id = '" . (int)$HTTP_GET_VARS['pID'] . "'"); echo tep_draw_hidden_field('products_url[' . $languages[$i]['id'] . ']', htmlspecialchars(stripslashes($products_url[$languages[$i]['id']]))); The above is not found in 2.3.4 In the instructions for product_info.php you have the following code you need to find: <p><?php echo stripslashes($product_info['products_description']); ?></p> However in 2.3.4 it's been modified to: <?php echo stripslashes($product_info['products_description']); ?> Which might make it hard for someone to find (posting in thread for future coder usage as reference point. Please correct if wrong) When doing the edits to admin/categories.php and pushing it out to my server, the categories.php page was blank. I'm sure that this is a /Facepalm moment but was not sure if it's the version that you have up as a contribution not playing nice with 2.3.4 or not. Thanks, Chris

    There's several questions about this contribution that need to be answered so that developers can install and use the add-on without issues. Unfortunately this happens with coders all the time (me too). Here's my questions: Iframe or Modal is needed. Are there add-ons for this or is it a matter of getting any third party script to use? If third party script is needed - do you have one you can suggest? If there's an add-on, what is it and can you link to it? If you have written code to make the iframe or modal appear - why not include it in the add-on? You've had 2 bits of changes to your code after 1.10. Why not push those through the add-on as a update? I only found them via a forum post. What if we want to have multiple upsell items? Right now, there's only the ability for one - can we create multiple add-on instances to work around this? We've got 4 products we're trying to upsell to our customers (ie: buy the clock, get the batteries for $1.99, buy our hanging kit for $3.99... ) Can you establish where the pop-ups occur in the checkout process? When using the funnel, this may need to change Are we to use the code provided in the add-on within a iframe or modal script? If so - which ones? I am sure that a lot of these questions may seem simple to you but you're the developer that's been using this system - I'm not asking you to do my work for me, just info on how to use what you've already created. Thanks, Chris
