    Time for a Bottom Up Rebuild?

    Every business has startup or running costs and website development for an online business should be included. But if you are just playing at websites then I see your point it can work out expensive. I had a look at opencart and there developers release a free version of a full addon that does not include every feature as a taster. Great idea and one that should be done here, but part of every sale should go back into the pot to help pay for future core code updates and changes.

    Time for a Bottom Up Rebuild?

    I have said for a very long time that the core of oscommerce needs to be fit for today's market. It has to offer the features that are needed in today's harsh selling environment. It has to do everything well. Recently I have been looking for other software as a replacement module for the old Stripe payments was not available and was in the hands of Harald, so was never going to done. There are lots of carts out there, some more popular than others, but all offer standard features not available to oscommerce which are needed to run an ecommerce store and generate sales. This has been known but ignored by those in charge for years, and another thread moaning about what should or should not be included will not have any effect. There is a lot of grounds to be made up and without someone to lead a marketing push, which should generate interest from new developers and new users, then I am afraid that the project will just fizzle out. There is nothing stopping people creating modules and submitting them to be considered to be put into core, but they have to be coded first to show what they can do and they have to work. Its wrong to expect one person to do it all as much as its wrong for one person to want to do it all.

    You are right there. There are loads of members very few of which are helpers so it could have been, and should have been kept in the open public forum.

    Time for a Bottom Up Rebuild?

    That's what the Phoenix club is used for although not everyone can join. A lot of ideas have come from discussions there.

    Time for a Bottom Up Rebuild?

    @valquiria23 we gave to agree to disagree. People cant wait for someone else to do everything. The so called team (Gary) needs all the help he can otherwise development will stop or slow. He cannot be expected to do everything that everyone wants.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    I have just placed a test order and added a comment to the order. That comment shows on the invoice at the top of the comments section. If I knew what I was doing I would look at the PayPal module and see why that only shows the customer order comments and not any of the other stuff it saves. Like I say the old module for Stripe used to do this so nothing lost. I just wondered if it could be removed. Thanks for taking the time to look.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Many thanks @raiwa for the quick response. There are some comments showing where the order comments should be n my invoice. This is the only payment module to show them. The old original module also showed them. I have circled the comments. What I dont have is an image with the standard order comments showing that a customer can add to the order process.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    I have just tested the most recent version with live and test payments and all seems to be working as it should. I did uninstall and remove the old stripe code form the site before testing so things must be looking up. My only comment is that payment details are showing again on the invoices. Is there a way for this not to show, but to be saved somewhere. In some of the earlier versions this dint happen.

    How big do you think this active team of developers is. At the moment its Gary on his own. No Harald nor anyone else as far as I am aware. If people want these payment modules, get them coded, tested and let those that can add to the core see what you gave done. It may get added if its good enough.

    Royal Mail shipping module

    Compare your RM files with the files from a standard oscommerce shipping module as I believe they were created using the flat rate as a base. I expect there has been a PHP change somewhere. You should also be able to find out why the module does not work by looking in your php error files.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Link to latest release version Latest version Is it a case that all the files in this latest release need to re-uploaded to the site or is it just the odd one or two. Upgrade instruction would be nice.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Just out of curiosity, is there a way to make the area where the card details are entered look a bit better. At first glance I didnt quite know where to enter the card number, and if I didnt know I am sure some of my older generation customers wont know either.

    Stripe v3 module for SCA

    Just uploaded and installed this addon. After having an error which was my fault as I missed a file out when uploading to server, everything seems to be working well in both live and test mode. Many thanks to those that wrote the module and tested it. I wish there was a way to buy someone a beer.

    Advice needed on shipping module

    I had a similar problem but it was on a very small scale. I send very few items by courier and then very few are heavy items, just over the 2kg limit of a small parcel with Royal mail so courier costs are not that high. I decided to keep things simple and just added a small percentage onto the cost of all courier deliveries to cover the additional costs to the far flung corners of the UK. I then push no additional charges for these far flung places. A bit of a cheat and not what you wanted, but it gets around a problem and looks good to those in the funny places in the UK that couriers dont like.

    Strong Consumer Authentication (SCA)

    Stripe are still saying that users should install their latest API, and upgrade to a new version as it includes all the 3d secure stuff that previous versions didnt. Users without the 3d secure may be penalised as the risks of charge=backs will increase.-

    Updated Stripe payment module

    Just be patient.

    Updated Stripe payment module

    I tried a while ago to get a developer to recode the module, but not one that I could find would actually do it and allow the code to be released on the forum for free or donations. In the end I gave up. Hopefully something will be done before the deadline as I got another email today from Stripe letting me know I needed to do something. All we can do is wait and see.

    Updated Stripe payment module

    I use the version from 20th May 2014 My site is only running Edge at the minute but I see no reason why it wont work on Frozen. https://apps.oscommerce.com/1x52L&bank-transfer-payment-option

    Royal Mail shipping module

    Thats the addon that I use for my RM shipping. I do only send out either large letters or small parcels up to 2kg so it was easy to adjust the price brackets to suit my site. There is no parcel size option as used by RM now but it can be made to work. I have set the site to show different options depending on total cost of the order as RM compensation is so low now, (over a certain cost only signed for shows) but again have no problems. Customers love that it is easy to use and selects to what is available depending of weight and order value. Any orders over 2kg use a courier module that was in the earlier version of this addon, but for some reason was removed. Just get the files from an earlier version. Its just a shame that there is no third zone for international postage which is something that I may look into creating. Updating prices is easy once you get the hang of the way they are listed.

    Expired Product Not Removed

    You may struggle getting people to test this as it includes many core code changes, which many people do not like doing now. If you could figure out a way of building this as a quick install module, then you may get support.

    Updated Stripe payment module

    Already have a BACS module on the site. Its the littlest used of the payment options that we offer, but great when it is used as no fees to pay. PayPal is the second most popular as that's what people recognise and Stripe is the most popular for card payments for now until the module no longer works as payments will be refused. Have removed cheques since the local branch closed and its too far to drive for one cheque. May have found an alternative if there is no one that feels that they can update the Stripe module. I have even put the job on People per hour and got many replies but very few that could answer the follow up questions so that didnt work.

    Updated Stripe payment module

    @JcMagpie Been using them for ages now. Cheaper than paypal and as I found out one day great customer support. No complaints here. Just have to be patient and wait for your money, but that will change apparently when the new modules are used as the risk for the processor changes. Opencart module has been updated as have a few others so some can do it. Above my pay grade though. Code does look a nightmare though. Hoping @HPDL gets on to this as he is now back. Other payment modules may also need changing to comply, but who knows.

    Updated Stripe payment module

    I received the following in an email from Stripe. Dont know how it changes things but if two factor authentication is required a new module will be required. Speaking to Stripe they say I need to speak to a developer, but as I have already tried that looks like I and many others may need a new module or a new cart.
  25. It would be up to the developers of the BS4 admin and the CE version to get together and discuss this. It is one area that Gary openly admits to not having the time to do too much with, but the code will have to meet his standards. The only problem I see with updating the admin are is that every admin module or report will also need to be updated. Thats a lot of work in someone fancies doing it, but none will. There is also no room here for another fork of the software. It just wont be allowed and any posts relating to it will be removed. May be there is potential for someone that wants regular updates to post the ones that are carried out on Github so the forum members can see what is being done. The CE version is constantly being worked on so there are loads of updates happening. We cant all expect one person to do it all.
