    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Is there a separate sort order for the Stripe module, as on all the other payment modules it works correct. Out of Paypal, BACS, Cheque, COD and free its onlt Stripe that messes about. Sorry to be a pain, well its not really me its my book keeper who keeps complaining.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Was this change to get the order totals in the correct order on the invoices as I was getting them in any order and now that are all in the correct order byut updside down. Total is at the top P&P is in the centre and sub total is at the bottom. Any way to get them the other way around.
  3. Same with me as with both Dan and Lee. I so far have not changed any core code, but I am going to have to just to get what I consider to be basic functionality that is required to run my store, which is not currently available or possible with the current core code (not bashing the core code though), its more the fault of the availability of addons. Some apparent addons for Phoenix still require core code changes either because the developer has no idea what they are doing, or there is no way around it. I cant afford to keep putting off an update, and I cannot keep paying developers to carry out addon updates, when many are not that interested in doing it (the original addon creators I mean). As with others I will update the live store with the version that I am currently working on, and when time permits, carry on updating in a test site until I feel that its right to upload and update the site again, and then start the test site all over again when new updates become available.
  4. I think the strategy is sound of stopping at a certain release. At some point us store owners have to get on and do other things like run the business even though times are getting a bit tough at the minute. Its easy for developers to keep changing things, but it takes time and money to get things changed and converted and not all of us have bottomless pits to pay for code work as addon developers are not keeping up as they have businesses to run to.
  5. I decided to use as thats just before loads of major changes took place. You are right though, development is moving fast and I could not keep up with it so just decided to get on and use the version where I was. I will update again in something like 12 months time and keep doing that now, rather than add every incremental update.
  6. For the first time last month I had more sales through Stripe than I did for PayPal. At the end of the day that are only giving back something they recently stopped giving anyway.

    Guest checkout for OsCommerce

    If you have just started using oscommerce, bin that version. Use the latest Phoenix version. Its so much better and there is a Purchase Without Account mod that is easy to instal and well tested, and is still beig improved and updated. Even if you have been using your version for a long time consider upgrading to something better. If you want to continue using your outdated version search for PWA in the addons area where you will find a PWA mod, but you will have to find a verion that will work with your old OSC version.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Cheers Rainer. I thought it may have been something I did. Will try the newest version again and let you know how I get on.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    The only thing I did was to upload the module files and got this error. I didn't even look into it.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    I updated this module earlier today and on testing both live and test there is the following error 1054 - Unknown column 'billing_nif' in 'field list' I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the module but still get the same error even after clearing the computer and server cache. To get everything back working correctly I reverted back to a copy of a backup of the includes/modules/payment/strip_sca.php file. Has anyone else seen this error?
  11. I had that very same erro that @JcMagpie mentions and it was a case of changing the admin configure file as he mentions.

    Reliable Payment Provider

    For the first time last month my sales through Stripe exceeded those through PayPal. The only problem with Stripe was that they kept your money for up to 7 days, but for some customers its down to three now just in case of chargebacks. On the one occasion I have to contact them for payment suppport they were reallt efficient and helpful. Not too sure that their charges are negotiable though unless you have a huge volume.

    Attribute Addon

    Again moving on and hoping someone else has done something rather than you doing it. I give up some people just are not prepared to improve things and want it doing for them.

    Attribute Addon

    Well pay a coder to do it then the same as we all have to instead of waiting for someone else to do it. Its easy for you and others to sit there and make these sort of comments that something would be good for your site, but there are only a few of us actually investing in the code and supporting the forward movement of oscommerce as you are fully aware.

    Attribute Addon

    Well get it coded then. Then you could release it back to the community for others to use.

    Change Finalise and pay for my order

    What ever you change that text to, make sure that it complies with local legislation. If you are in the EU then you have to be careful what buttons say as you have to make people aware that the next step of the procedure is to checkout and pay for the order.
  17. I had a similar problem when I first did an install of a test site. Check your hosting is not caching your site. Mine were using supercacher which was causing it. Once a full clear of the cache was done everything worked as it should.
  18. Or as most business will do suck up the costs. I am not too sure that the Consumer Contract Regulations allow for withholding part of a payment, but there may be clause in there somewhere. I know several business that in calculating final selling prices of goods add in a percentage for returns, so this will just get added in to that. Stripe and other payment processors are also doing the same. I also think ebay are doing the same with their fees. Its not their fault the customer cancels or returns products so why should they give their costs back. Luckily I am in a low return business. Got to feel sorry for clothes or shoes sellers.

    New Installation

    Hopefully you or your hosts will have a backup of everything to a point before you started any updates. I would like to think that you have the store backed up before you started so just delete all the file son the server and replace with the backup. Then get your hosts, or you use your backup of the database and restore that. Once you have done that everything should be working as it was, then you can either leave well alone if you are unsure of what you are doing and get someone that is sure of what they are doing to complete the update.

    Attribute Addon

    There used to be a computer creator addon that has not been updated for many years. I used it on a custom computer store that I used to run. It did exactly what you are looking for, and it would only allow options if the products were already in stock. At the time all those years ago people used it for many other things, including a custom shed website. Probably need too much work now to get it working on Phoenix. Its here https://apps.oscommerce.com/5NEUS&custom-computer-creator or there was another one that I never really got to work https://apps.oscommerce.com/FwS4E&pc-pro-creator

    Price list

    Thanks @Jack_mcs Jack. I will look at both of those. I tried doing a catalogue a few years ago and it was a nightmare from the very start so binned the idea. I got software to link into the database but it meant rewriting all the product descriptions as they were sill cut-off to a certain length. Apart from that it was not too bad but expensive to print and could not be converted into a PDF for download. Restrictions on the software without paying a small fortune and an arm and leg to get the full version.
  22. I am after a bit of help again. I have searched the addons area and cannot really find anything suitable that actually works. I have tried 3 or 4 from the addons section including some early versions. Does anyone know of a good simple price list addon that creates a page listing all the in stock products in the store with their name, model number and price. Not wanting image or anything too complicated. I cant find anything that is basic and easy to alter or change to work with Phoenix Would be nice if customers could save a file copy of the list and a print facility would be good but not a requirement nif its hard to do. Any help on getting something sorted for Phoenix would be appreciated. I am prepared to alter code to get an old addon working with Phoenix if that's what it takes.

    Price list

    Thanks for all the hints and tips. I have decided that with over 3500 products, a page of products is not that good and looks horrible. I have decided to search for an admin addon and create a downloadable sheet that customers can save and use if they want. Seems easier and saves server resources. The stock taking addon looks to do something that can be saved and converted to a PDF that looks much better.
  24. All mine end up as Shipped or Download Available. Anything other that those can be deleted as they are not completed. The incomplete ones remain as the recover carts still register them. After a set time they are deleted.
  25. I had exactly the same happen with all my payment methods. (Stripe and Paypal) Unpaid or uncompleted orders remain at the Preparing stage but still count towards any totals in the store. I just deleted all these orders and the totals were corrected. You also have to watch that if you send a refund or partial refund that does not get deducted in any of the payment reports either.
