    Need Help with USPS module

    7. If you're shipping internationally, you'll need to fix a bug caused by changes in the USPS International Rates API. For details, do a search on "+USPS +International +API"--there are plenty of postings on the topic.

    Helllpppp meee!

    If you're using the osCommerce File Manager, don't. It is buggy, and will make you crazy. Get a text editor with search and line numbering, edit according to the instructions, and upload the files via an FTP client program.

    1. v2.7d is recent--but not so recent that nobody has had a chance to find bugs--and it's a full package, so it should be a good version choice. 2. The instructions are in the included file USPSMethods_2.7d.txt. First make back up copies of any files that it asks you to modify. It is also a good idea to read the Contribution Support thread before installing, to get an idea where other people have banged their heads. Cheers.

    Yes, chargebacks happen with credit cards through a gateway too. But RW speaks the truth that Paypal's Seller Protection Policy is weak. Almost useless, in fact. For credit card purchases, we depend on the MaxMind fraud detection (free) service. You'll get nothing like that with Paypal. http://www.maxmind.com/app/ccv_overview http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,2115 OK, off the soapbox now... :P

    What payment method is best?

    Agreed, offering only one payment method is not the best. We offer Paypal, credit card via gateway, Check/Money Order, and Bank Transfer. We find the vast majority of customers prefer to pay by credit card, but we limit this option to countries with relatively low fraud rates. We offer Paypal only to N. American customers. For countries with higher fraud rates, we offer only Bank Transfer and Check/Money Order.

    How do you install a ssl cert?

    Incorrect shipping prices??

    Regarding installing contributions, you'll find some sort of instruction file within the contribution itself. The instruction quality can vary, but most are straightforward. To prevent a shipping module from showing up for certain countries, you need to create a Tax Zone (in admin under Locations/Taxes) containing only the desired country/countries. (In my case, I have a yellow folder titled 'USA' that contains only one country, the United States, and another folder called 'World' containing many countries.) Then go back to your Table Rate module and pick 'USA' as the Shipping Zone. Likewise, select 'World' for Zone Rates.

    NO modules set-up - how to get paid?

    Short answer--you'll need to get a merchant account for credit card processing, or the money won't go anywhere.

    PayPal IPN problem with bogus orders

    Don't know which version of Paypal IPN you are using, but the version I installed way back instructed to add "Pending PayPal Notification" in Orders Status. Select the new status in the module's "Set Pending Notification Status" dropdown, and all should be good... The bogus orders show up with "Pending PayPal Notification", clear as day.

    Quickie about ZONES

    Since you have another Free Ground Shipping module present (but not "Installed"), perhaps that one would better meet your requirements? You might also find other free shipping modules in the Contributions section. Cheers.

    Quickie about ZONES

    Part of the problem is that it looks like the "Free UPS Ground Shipping" module you are using does not have a standard Shipping Zone setting (look at the UPS and USPS modules to see what I mean). That sucks. You might want to find the support thread for the free shipping module, and see if anybody else has a solution. Also, by my method you would not create a Tax Zone folder called Hawaii (presumably containing only a single zone for Hawaii), but a folder called something like "Mainland 48", containing a zone for each of the 48 states to which you want to offer free shipping. But that point is moot if your shipping module doesn't offer a standard Shipping Zone dropdown... :(
