    Payment Rec'd but No Order?

    we just launched our new site about three weeks ago. PayPal orders seemed to be working fine, but today this same thing happened to us too- the PayPal payment came, and it was even broken down into the item price and shipping charge, but there was no reference of the order in our osCommerce admin area. I am going to search the forums for a while, but wanted to add this reply to see if anyone knows of a fix. I tested it out myself and signed up for a new account and then selected to pay by PayPal and the same thing happened...

    shipping table and free shipping possible?

    You can mandate free shipping on orders above a certain amount by going into your admin area and selecting Modules from the menu- then click on Order total, then click on Shipping, then edit, and change "allow free shipping" to true and set a number in the "Free shipping for orders over" box.

    FREE Shipping

    I have been searching long and hard myself for a way to put free shipping on certain items. I have not found the exact solution I want, but I did come up with a workaround that allows free shipping, I hope this can be of some help to people. My store sells products and web hosting, and I needed a way to turn off shipping for hosting accounts. I didn't quite achieve that, but what I did get was an addtional option when checking out, right above the list of pay-per shipping charge selections, that says "Shipping Not Applicable- Only select this option if you are purchasing a hosting account- if you are buying a product, you must select a pay-per method below" Right next to this text is a radio button with the text $0.00. When the customer selects this button, they are then allowed to proceed to making payment and no shipping charges are added to the order. This is how you do it: Go to http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,598/page,4 and download this contribution. I did not create this contribution, but thanks much to the person that did. This contribution is so that you can enable an instore pickup option in your shopping cart. The instructions are in another language, but you just have to upload each of the files to the respective directories the files are in when you unzip them. Once you have uploaded the files to the appropriate directories, go to your OScommerce admin page, click on Modules-Shipping, and then click on the one that says "pick up" and then select "Install". Once installed, click edit, and then select True to enable pickup shipping. Then click update. Now open this file: catalog/includes/languages/english/modules/shipping/pickup.php Find the line define('MODULE_SHIPPING_PICKUP_TEXT_TITLE', 'Pick up'); Modify the text to whatever you want to say. For example you can say: define('MODULE_SHIPPING_PICKUP_TEXT_TITLE', 'No Shipping Charge- only select this option if you are are purchasing a service, not a product'); Basically you want to use this text to let customers know they have to select a shipping charge unless they are buying a service from you, or an item where free shipping was advertised. You may also want to add that if the customer selects "No Shipping Charge" on an item that does not qualify for free shipping, it will delay their order and shipping charges will be added on anyhow. You want to repeat the above step on this line, which is right below the above line: define('MODULE_SHIPPING_PICKUP_TEXT_DESCRIPTION', 'Pick up'); This is important- if you are creating an item that is a service or that will otherwise qualify for free shipping, make sure to give the product a weight- setting it to 0 is not recommended, especially if you are running the UPS or FedEx calculator plugins. I know these instructions are a little longwinded, so please post any questions you have.

    [Contribution] Ship In Cart

    bsnrjones wrote: "I just did the install. Seems to work only it breaks the middle cell in my cart. It forces the width of this cell, and screws up the display. Any thoughts? " ---------------------- I had this same problem but did not see a posted response. I think I figured it out so I thought I would post here in case any one else has the same issue. The problem is that the middle cell is too wide and extends past the browser in 800 X 600 display mode. The solution is to modify catalog/includes/modules/shipping_estimator.php Search for "nowrap" (without quotes) It should be found in two places. I just changed it to "wrap" (without quotes) and now the whole thing fits in the browser just as every other page does. There may be a better solution, I don't know, but this seemed to fix the issue for me.
