    PayPal fee changes

    Totally off oscommerce topic but ecommerce related. Who has noticed that Paypal has changed their fee structure. I noticed this earlier today after browsing another forum. In the UK they used to offer a small percentage discount if sales were above certain levels, plus a 20p transaction cost. Well no more discounts, level is set at 2.9% which is less than the usual 3.2% but I was already getting 2.9%, but the transaction fee charge has increased from 20p to 30p per transaction. Be honest - who noticed.

    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.
  3. Sorry for the long post but no matter what changes I make to the user.css file on my latest version of Phoenix nothing changes. I have refreshed the cache on my hosting account by clicking the button in cpanel. I have refreshed the cache on my browser by using Ctrl +f5 and a few other suggested ways. I wanted to change the h1 tag which is the main page headers on nearly every page in the site from what it is in bootstrap to something different. so entered into the stylesheet. I also what to change the size and colour of other h tags but again nothing changes. .h1 h1 { font-size: 30px; color: #0099ff; } Nothing changed. I have also tried important to it and nothing changed. I have checked that in the hooks-shop-sitewide-styleSheets file and its in there in the right order assuming that the one listed last is selected last. Using the inspect element feature in Firefox the user css code is crossed out which means that something later than the user.css is being used and that is the _typescss is currently controlling the font size and the colour change is not listed anywhere. I have tried removing the user.css file and creating anew one on my hosting account and that does not work either. Am I doing something wrong?

    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.
  6. @BrockleyJohn What ever you did has sorted it. @burt thanks for releasing the fix so quick. CSS changes now work.

    @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.
  12. @burt It was John that contacted me for more details. Thought a post here may generate a bit more help or at the very least a few ideas.
  13. I has been pointed out that the user.css file is called before the bootstrap files, rather than after. Viewing the source of the page I see <!-- stylesheets hooked --> <style>* {min-height: 0.01px;}.form-control-feedback { position: absolute; width: auto; top: 7px; right: 45px; margin-top: 0; }@media (max-width: 575.98px) {.display-1 {font-size: 3rem;font-weight: 300;line-height: 1.0;}.display-2 {font-size: 2.75rem;font-weight: 300;line-height: 1.0;}.display-3 {font-size: 2.25rem;font-weight: 300;line-height: 1.0;}.display-4 {font-size: 1.75rem;font-weight: 300;line-height: 1.0;}h4 {font-size: 1rem;}}</style> <link href="user.css" rel="stylesheet"> <style>@media (min-width: 576px) {.card-group > .card.is-product {max-width: 50%;}.card-deck > .card.is-product {max-width: calc(50% - 30px);}.card-columns {column-count: 2;}} @media (min-width: 768px) {.card-group > .card.is-product {max-width: 33.333333333333%;}.card-deck > .card.is-product {max-width: calc(33.333333333333% - 30px);}.card-columns {column-count: 3;}} @media (min-width: 992px) {.card-group > .card.is-product {max-width: 25%;}.card-deck > .card.is-product {max-width: calc(25% - 30px);}.card-columns {column-count: 4;}} @media (min-width: 1200px) {.card-group > .card.is-product {max-width: 25%;}.card-deck > .card.is-product {max-width: calc(25% - 30px);}.card-columns {column-count: 4;}}</style> <!-- fa hooked --> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.10.2/css/all.css" crossorigin="anonymous"> <!-- bs hooked --> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.3.1/css/bootstrap.min.css" integrity="sha384-ggOyR0iXCbMQv3Xipma34MD+dH/1fQ784/j6cY/iJTQUOhcWr7x9JvoRxT2MZw1T" crossorigin="anonymous"> Shouldnt the user.css stuff be after all the other bits. If so how do we change the sort order of the hooks?

    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.
  16. I believe that the reviews area got a rewrite and update and for some reason the button to write and create a review has been removed. I asked Gary about this a week or so ago and was told that Its being made available to only the supporters in a module for the product info page.
  17. That's why we should stick to being a shop owner and leave the coding to those that know what they are doing even if it means paying someone to do it. All you have to find is a coder that will listen to what you want and do what you want, not what they think you want. Thats the hard bit with some. I have enjoyed a bit of a play with bootstrap 4. There are so many features that can be used and changed easily in all the areas of the code. All it takes is a quick read on the bootstrap code pages or w3schols sites and a simple change can make all the difference.

    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.

    PayPal Credit option

    I think its more of an option for those that have a PayPal account as it gives your customers an option to buy from you using the credit account they have set up on their account, but I may be wrong. My problem is that I dont use paypal to pay so never see the option, plus I only ever make small paypals online so never go over the £99 minimum.

    PayPal fee changes

    We got hit when we stated accepting Stripe as a payment method as they are cheaper as well. I wish everyone would pay using Stripe but some do love paypal.

    Ancient Coin Traders - Phoenix

    Look who is making the comments. Its Henry again. Been allowed back in for some reason. Just block or ignore his comments.
  24. On my current site I went through loads of the tables and made them responsive just so if I choose to use my phone to view the admin pages they are easier to read. Only did the most accessed one though.
  25. @JcMagpie On a small device you are right. It looks like its coded as a responsive table but I dont think it is.
