    cannuck1964 got a reaction from John W in AIM Module - MD5 Hash Is Going Away. Is there an update?   
    For hosted forms.   For XML it is the preferred method of implementation
    The link I sent is for XML implementation classes
    Hosted forms have not been in use for a very long time now.
    cheers

    Distance based shipping
     
    This module will allow you to define a set radius from 0 to any other value in your selected unit of measure imperial or metric, (base radius).
     
    This defined zone around your shipping area can have a defined cost associated with it from 0 to any other value (defined zone cost).
     
    The unit of measure will be calculated based on the per unit of measure cost that is defined in the settings section in the admin.
    Distance outside of this defined radius will incur charges based on the following formula:
     
    shipping cost = (define zone cost + ((total distance shipped - base radius) * per unit of measure cost)
     
    Distance is rounded up to nearest KM or mile. Requests are sent in SSL mode (I may change this later but would fully expect people to use SSL in the checkout section)

    cannuck1964 got a reaction from avtohelp in Purchase Without Account   
    In regards to the PWA inclusion, I have a suggestion and one which I have implemented on many sites already. I took part of the PWA idea and converted it so that an account is created if one does not exist, this is done and is part of the checkout process. So if a customer does not have an account and they checkout, the data from shipping and payment are stored and an account is created. Defaults are used for newsletters and a random password is sent to the user.
     
    What this does, it removes the create account process (or redirect to it) allows for a login on the same page, saves the data for further marketing uses and streamlines the checkout process. I have also added both the shipping and the payment pages together and used javascript for dynamic updates to the costs based on shipping methods selected.
     
    This new checkout system has, one page for the gathering of the shipping/billing info (login if an account already) creates the account and sends the user to the shipping/payment page. Here they are allowed to edit the addresses for billing and shipping and select the shipping method and payment method, third page is the standard confirmation page. click it and complete.
     
    I am sort of wondering why you would not want to have an account created for the purchase, this has never really made sense to me as the vast majority of the info is saved anyways, and generally leads to more issues then it solves (order tracking and comments etc). I understand that the redirect and the three additional pages is not a good idea, but removal of the account totally does not make much sense either.
     
    I propose that a streamlining of the checkout in a similar fashion would lead to a more robust checkout and ability to market to these people in the future, which is what sales are all about.

    cannuck1964 got a reaction from Pronux in New BSD License   
    Hi,
     
    I am wondering a few things on the new release being based on BSD License.
     
    There are several flavours of BSD ( see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSD_licenses ) , which is going to be used ?
     
    What will this mean in terms of code, will code still be required to be released with both the source code ( for binaries ) and no encryption?
     
    Is there a reason that a move away from the GPL has been done for ver 3 ?
     
    I have been using GPL based code for many years and just not positive of all of the changes that this will bring about in terms of requirements on code development and releases.
     
    cheers
