  1. You skipped step 2. You need to install http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6634
  2. Re: With PayPal Website Payments Pro (US) Direct Payments v 1.1 found at http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,5659 Problem: When customer enters credit card number with spaces or dashes the process fails and error message presents like "Acct: Invalid Parameter" If anyone knows how to get this field to ignore spaces and dashes, please explain how. Thanks
  3. Since there is no mention of any support thread for this contribution on the contribution page and I can't find anything when searching the forum, I am assuming there isn't one and so I'm starting one. These things are probably best started by someone who writes and supports the contribution. I am neither. I have tried to help myself and failed so it is very unlikely I can help anyone else. That being said, I will do my best to share whatever I do learn from others and by experimentation.
  4. Dude! Thanks for that! Mine was commented out for some stupid reason too. And uncommenting it out fixed it. And I was using version 2.02 from 12/14/2007

  6. Okay so you've given me some new information. I did understand the purpose of level 2 and that's alright as long as I get ALL the customer info. And the badge doesn't do anything for me so I'm not willing to do anything or give anything up for it. So as long as this module and google populate my customer database with all the usual information including a real complete email address and phone number and my customer does get a customer account, a welcome email, a login and password, and can login to check order status then that is fine. But if not then this module doesn't work for me. Is there another google checkout module that would work for me?
  7. So good that it passes the payment confirmation info from google back to osc. To clarify what I was saying .... Its fine with me if the customer chooses google on the checkout payment page once they have seen all the options. Its not okay with me to give the option before they have seen all the other options. And it is definitely not okay with me to give them the option to checkout with google without creating an account in my store. So instead of having the option to select google checkout on the login page and then leave my site without creating an account, I would just like to put the google checkout logo there that assures them that they can checkout with google once they create an account, which is allowed in the google checkout TOS. Similarly instead of offering google checkout from shopping_cart.php I want to offer it on checkout_payment.php Now, once they select the google checkout payment option, I want the account information they entered in oscommerce to populate the fields in google checkout so they don't have to reenter what they have just entered. As far as I can tell this is acceptable to googles TOS but just not the way the module is written. I need my customers email address and phone number so I can communicate with them directly. And I want my customers to see all their payment options before choosing.
  8. Okay so if you are using google adwords there are some benefits to using google checkout. Okay. But at least the google checkout module in oscommerce could be written so the customer has to create an account and gets to choose from all the options on the payment options page. And we should be passing their account info to google for their convenience. And then when the transaction is complete google should be sending them back to us and oscommerce should know the google transaction is complete so it can send out the usual order confirmation.
  9. Okay so I can see how it is to goggle's benefit to bypass our checkout system so they get customer data and we don't but how is it to our benefit as store owners not to know our customers names, addresses, phone number, order history etc.? So I want google check out to be an option in the normal check out process like paypal or whatever else I offer and not to bypass it at all. Once they have created an account in my store and reached the payment options page they can pay by google checkout and be returned to my store and the order payment is confirmed. Just today fearless leader (Harald Ponce de Leon) released 2 new pay pal modules, pro and express that do this beautifully. And since google checkout isn't free (now 2%) why would I settle for less. I wonder if this google module is set up like it is, in googles best interests not ours, because it was written by someone paid by google to write it. After all I see nothing in their TOS that says the checkout process needs to be bypassed.
  10. I have not seen any evidence that "It's against Google's TOS to have it as a payment option on the payment page." Please quote your source. I'll quote what I found in the rules so far that seems relevant: You may place Checkout buttons after login pages if and only if the following conditions are met: * You display the Google Checkout Acceptance Logo on your website You must display the Google-hosted Checkout acceptance logo before the login pages of your website so buyers know that Google Checkout is accepted after login.
  11. Installed and working fine if using the google checkout button on the shopping cart page but if go through regular checkout and select google on checkout_payment.php it doesn't work. It goes to confirm then when hit confirm it returns back to the cart. Any ideas?
  12. For some reason you and I and others in the forums seem to have installations of osc affiliate that want an affiliate_category_id field in the affiliate banners table but the sql file didn't have it so we get errors like 1054 - Unknown column 'affiliate_category_id' when we try to create a banner. I think I'm using 2.7 and I think it is needed for 2.7 but I don't know for sure. Run this SQL and it will replace the banner table and include the missing field: DROP TABLE IF EXISTS affiliate_banners; CREATE TABLE affiliate_banners ( affiliate_banners_id int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment, affiliate_banners_title varchar(64) NOT NULL default '', affiliate_products_id int(11) NOT NULL default '0', affiliate_category_id` int(11) NOT NULL default '0', affiliate_banners_image varchar(64) NOT NULL default '', affiliate_banners_group varchar(10) NOT NULL default '', affiliate_banners_html_text text, affiliate_expires_impressions int(7) default '0', affiliate_expires_date datetime default NULL, affiliate_date_scheduled datetime default NULL, affiliate_date_added datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00', affiliate_date_status_change datetime default NULL, affiliate_status int(1) NOT NULL default '1', PRIMARY KEY (affiliate_banners_id) );
  13. Does this module allow me to choose to send my vendor consolidated daily emails of orders instead of an email for each order?
  14. I can't figure out how to make this recognize my fck editor, which I have installed. These instructions don't make sense to me because I can't find any files to rename: 9.1 A) Download and install the contribution FCKosc : http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...l/search,fckosc B ) Use the files marked to be used if you want to use this WYSIWYG contribution renaming them to .php and you are done!"
  15. I'm looking for a patch between tell a friend and CCGV that: a) includes in the tell-a-friend email a unique on time use 10% discount code and if and when the friend makes a purchase the system emails the referrer a unique 1 time use 10% discount code. This is a viral marketing device that encourages referrals by giving the giver and reciever of hte referral an incentive. I've seen this in use by successful companies. Anyone know if this exists already or anyone want to get paid to write it?
