    Help With International Shipment Weights Error

    I am also having a problem with the USPS shipping module. I display the weights of my products as decimal values because the scale I own reports weights this way. Yesterday I received an order from Australia (I am in the US) and one of the shipping methods listed for the customer is Global Priority Mail for $6.00. When the customer selects this shipping method, the order total page displays Global Express Guaranteed Document Service for $53.00. Something is amiss here. I'm not sure if it's the same problem or not. I am an experienced programmer that has created a few modifications to my cart, but I'm not sure I can figure this one out on my own. I am going to try to look through the code to see if something pops out, but I won't bet on finding anything anytime soon. Can someone who's a bit more experienced help out here? How about the osCommerce team? Is there someone out there that helped write this module?
  2. Yes, it appears that the documentation was wrong. I had it the way the documentation suggested. Glad you are up and running.
  3. After some digging through the support site here I believe I found the solution. Check out this link: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?sho...c=52161&st=1190 The last respone on this page was how I solved the problem. When I changed the sort order, I got the check box! HTH!
  4. I am having the same problem after installing this contribution last night. Coupons work fine. I am not able to apply a Gift Voucher balance to my order. I don't get a check box upon checkout, I just get a box to enter the Gift Voucher code. Can't do this because I've already redeemed it. C'mon guys, someone out there must have had this problem.
  5. I just installed the admin side of the Credit Class & Gift Voucher contribution and noticed something weird. It's not a real problem, I'm just curious why it happens. I can now see the Vouchers/Coupons item on the left side of the page. When I click on it, the items underneath it are displayed, but the page does not change. This doesn't work like the other items which display the page for the first sub-item beneath them. For example, when I click on Tools, the Backup item (first sub-item) page is displayed by default. Again just curious why this doesn't happen with Vouchers/Coupons. Maybe I did something wrong during the installation?

    USPS Module

    A short while ago, I requested to be moved to the production server. After I received the e-mail confirming that I was moved, I changed the setting in osCommerce and everything works fine. Thanks for the assistance! Chris :D

    USPS Module

    I would like to use the USPS shipping module with my store, but I can't seem to get it working. I have signed up for a WebTools account and received my username and password. In osCommerce Administration, I installed the USPS module, entered my username and password, and set it to the "test" server. The problem is that when I test the checkout process, I get the following message: An error occured with the USPS shipping calculations. If you prefer to use USPS as your shipping method, please contact the store owner. Am I doing something wrong or is there a problem with this working? Any help is greatly appreciated! Chris

    Paypal IPN

    I am very new to osCommerce, but I do have extensive experience using PayPal's IPN. Here's some information that might help: PayPal will notify you via e-mail when money has been sent to you. It will send an e-mail to the address you used when you set up your account. This is nice for people who only sell one or two items on eBay, but for those who run e-commerce sites may need more than just an e-mail. That's where IPN comes in. In addition to sending an e-mail, PayPal can send an Instant Payment Notification (IPN). It will send this notification to the URL you specify, the "PayPal IPN Notify URL" you mention in your message. This URL is the path to a script you or someone else has written in PHP, ASP, JSP, etc. There are plenty of free scripts out there, but you do have to customize them to your specific needs. PayPal sends the details of the transaction to the IPN script. What details you ask? Well, if you are using PayPal's shopping cart (which I'm sure osCommerce does not), it will send you a list of the items purchased. Again, this is only if you use PayPal's shopping cart. You can put "Add to Cart" buttons on your site and let PayPal keep track of the cart for you, but, of course, osCommerce does this already. If you are using PayPal's shopping cart, the IPN your script receives can update inventory levels, etc. in your database. It can also activate subscriptions if that's what you are selling. In the test that I have done thus far, it appears as if osCommerce simply uses PayPal to collect the total amount owed, so your IPN script will just receive that information, the amount that was sent to your PayPal account. I'm sure you can, however, go into the administration area of osCommerce to see the detail of any orders placed. I am just getting into osCommerce and I think it's wonderful, mainly since it's free. I am planning on using PayPal to start and see if it works out with potential buyers. I think PayPal is great, especially since they just removed the requirement that a buyer must have a PayPal account in order to use the service. If PayPal doesn't work out, I will look into getting a merchant account. I hope this helps. Chris
