  1. Hi I have paypal IPN 1.1, ccgv 5.14 I have an ssl server like so : https//mysite.com/ question 1) do I need to bother with OSC's paypal ipn encryption since both my site and paypal use encryption? My hunch is that it would help to prevent spoofing but some confirmation or other reasons would help me understand the purpose. question 2) I have the contribution working but I can NOT get the encryption to work. Paypal says that "the email address is not present in the encrypted blob". I have tried doing the certs several times and in several different ways using openssl. I found a posting suggesting like this openssl genrsa -des3 -out privkey.pem 2048 openssl req -new -x509 -key privkey.pem -out cacert.pem -days 1095 and the paypal documentation says like this openssl genrsa -out my-prvkey.pem 1024 openssl req -new -key my-prvkey.pem -x509 -days 365 -out mypubcert.pem In both cases when I upload the public cert to my account profile in paypal under encrypted settings, paypal seems to be able to read the email. But, when I go through the checkout process, after confirmation I get the encrypted blob errror message from paypal. I have read posts, that people have resolved the encrypted blob problem by having the host give them a certificate. But there were then questions about what to actually ask of the host. Should I ask for a private and a public key?? How will they know the email account that paypal uses to identify the payee? Is the email address one puts into the open ssl public certificate the same as the vendor email address?? Thanks for any assistance.

    hmm, I installed it yesterday and do not have this problem. my guess is that something funky is going on in here in includes/modules/payment/paypal_ipn.php may be one of your email settings has unbalanced quotes in it that is throwing something off??? I think I remember people having problems with SEND_EXTRA_ORDER_EMAILS_TO so you might try searching on that if no one gives you better info. c ya tep_mail($order->customer['firstname'] . ' ' . $order->customer['lastname'], $order->customer['email_address'], EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT, $email_order, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS); // send emails to other people if (SEND_EXTRA_ORDER_EMAILS_TO != '') { tep_mail('', SEND_EXTRA_ORDER_EMAILS_TO, EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT, $email_order, STORE_OWNER, STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS); }

    See if this works ... Go into your paypal profile turn on the setting for auto return /.. don't remember where it is exactly also ... under Instant Payment Notification Preferences put : Instant Payment Notification (IPN) On Instant Payment Notification (IPN) URL: http://yoursite.com/catalog/checkout_success.php

    Paypay ipn 1.2 ?

    Hi, I don't know if it's my brain playing tricks on me or ... Last week I installed paypal ipn 1.2 because v1.1 did not work correctly with CCGV (even if I added paypal_ipn fix suggeted in the CCGV listing) About 2 weeks ago, I noticed that it was in a different category than the "team" paypal ipn module, then it seemed to be added there in the "team". Now, I don't see it at all. I searched on the author's name but did not find a lot by way of explanation. If someone took it off, could that persson or some one in the know also place an explanation in the contribution listing ... with a recommendation about whether people who downlaoded 1.2 should keep it or not? I looked in the bug reports, but I only see something about PIVA and about downloadable products ... not sure if this second one relates to the module generally or a particular version. Thanks,

    Total amount customer was charged?

    I am kind of new to OSC .... but have been mucking about in CCGV and developing a custom I am developing a custom order_total module ... so I have also observed the strange way that the total versus coupon is presented by CCGV and logged in the order_total table. unless there is a payments table that I have overlooked, I don't think the number you are looking for is stored anywhere. It could be ... if you made some changes to both ot_gv.php (or the coupon one) and ot_order_total.php But that would be hard. If the orders table shows which order have been successfully processed, I can think of ways that you could use filemaker or acess to query the order_table so that you end up the the sum of the total less the coupon value. (extract lines with total and coupon, change the sign on the coupon value if necessary, and then sum with group by on order_id) there's my two cents.

    Apply discount percentage??

    OK I am pretty new to this but here are my two cents ... I haven't used that contribution but if an order_total contribution is written as one would expect, it will deduct the amount from the total and that total would reflect what the customer will get charged. In otherwords, the authorization takes place after the total is calculuated. There is another contribution called ot_xmembers that could also be helpful ... but now that I think about it, it would not work for you because new customers would not be members without you setting them up as such (unless there is a default that you can set so that new clients are already members ... or if you can configure mysql to auto set the member field)

    Credit Class & Gift Voucher HELP

    Hi, You have to open the database with a program like phpMyAdmin or if you know how to use it the mysql command line. Then, you take the .sql file and run it. In phpMyAdmin there is an SQL window ... just cut and paste the full contents of the .sql file in that window. This will make all the changed needed to your OSC mysql database. However, if you are using the same 5.14 that i used some of the text imported into the database (and used in the admin section) will be in french. Also, in that version, there was some code that that was inadvertantly pasted into some the language files. if you find my posts in forum program you'll see further explanation. c ya,
  10. Hi Folks .... I am trying to get encryption working in both live and sandbox for osCommerce-PayPal_IPN-v1.1 I have followed instructions from the docs and previous posts (e.g. http://www.lunarforums.com/forum/index.php...27705.msg218110 ). But I am getting this error on paypal "The email address for the business is not present in the encrypted blob. Please contact your merchant." I have seen that this error was raised in the above posts, but I don't see an answer. I have tried to make it work in both live and sandbox with same result. Thanks for any assistance ...

    Import stops after first product

    I think what you need to do is ... put EOREOR as the field name but also EOREOR in every cell below it. I think this tells ez pop that this is the end of the record.

    Easy populate

    I had problems with easy populate. If I remember correctly, I fixed them by making sure I had the right delimeter set up in the config file and by making sure that the products_model ( think that is what this field is called) field was filled-in and unique. In my case, I use an msaccess query and build the products_model field from the products_description field. I still have not figured out how to use the upload feature in admin ... instead I use FTP and then run the import.
