    One Page Checkout Support

    Hi Steve! Yeah I guess I will need to do that. It is simply frustrating at times when you find a real cool mod and you can't get it to work on your site. And the fact that, as far as I can tell, you are the only one offering support for the OPC while the actual creators of the mod offers no support. Why bother creating a mod if you are not going to help people integrate into your site? Perhaps that is the point, they simply throw a carrot out there and wait for someone to contact them and pay big money for integration help. ;) In any event, I will give it a few more months. I do like the ajax mod, but unfortunately they do not offer any of the payment methods I currently run. I'd think that they would have PayPal IPN figure out by now, since they released their mod in February. I guess PayPal IPN is a big monster to tame :D I'm still trying to figure my OPC issue with shipping, just not as hard as before. I was getting burned out. I will keep at it as I love a puzzle. Should I have success I will report my findings and maybe it will help others with similar issues. On that note, I do have a quick question. . . . On your site, does the shipping method or charge shows up before you enter an address in the address field when you are a new customer? I know that it doesn't in the demo, but I had it showing in mine before I even got to the address. I don't know what that means yet, but I am curious. Thanks and have a great day! ski

    Hi Steve! Thanks for the suggestion and information. I guess I simply can't win :angry: I went ahead and did the installation of the Ajax module you suggested. Lo and behold, the shipping table did show and it worked flawlessly with "Shipping Zone" in the Table Rates selected. . . . Hurray! . . . . . But oh! . . . . not so fast! :( In Ajax, I cannot get my payment table to show (PayPal IPN or Google Checkout) :angry: I guess if I could simply combine the OPC and Ajax I would be able to have a fully operational mod :lol: Oh well, I guess it's not meant to be. I will give it a rest and keep my site as is. It has worked for 3 years without issues, so if it's not broken why fix it? As for reporting bugs. I did do that too. I reported the OPC issue and after trying the 2 Simple Page checkout I reported the issues I was having with that mod too. The creator on that one did write back, but he has not touched the mod for months and doesn't have any suggestions at the moment. He will work on the mod over the winter and see if he can make it standard for all shops. I guess we'll have to wait and see. In any event, I had enough of this. I have tried 3 different mods and none of them have worked for me. Perhaps in the future I will try again. Thanks for all you help. You have been very kind and patient with me and all the others who come in here for help. I commend you. :thumbsup: Best regards, ski

    One Page Checkout Support

    Hi Steve. Thanks for the info, I will take a look. As for my shipping table option not showing, I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction on where I can look for this anomaly. Last night, I remove the OPC entirely from my shop and installed a different module (2 Steps Simple Checkout) to see what that module did. Well, lo and behold, the module replicates the exact same problem :huh: The option to choose which shipping to use does not appear at all unless the shipping module does NOT have the Shipping Zone selected! :'( :angry: What gives????? My shipping Tables Rates work flawlessly so that a customer from Europe (i.e. France) will pay one shipping amount versus a person from Kansas. So I do not understand how or where I can find what is causing the problem if my shipping Zones is set inside all of my Table Rates. I sure could use some hints on where on the code or file I can look for this. I really would like to have OPC on my shop. Thank you and appreciate any help you may be able to provide. ski

    Hi Steve! Okay, I checked to see if my Table Rate had any modifications and it doesn't. It is the same old stock Table Rate (only a different name assigned so that I can see it on the admin side). Because I have different table rates for different Shipping Zones, I had to create different Tax Zones to coincide with the different table rates. I have one for the US (except for my State) and one for my state alone. Thus if you are from Maine I won't charge you taxes, but if you are from my state I will. Then I also have for different regions of the World (i.e. Asia, Europe, etc). I have been playing with this mod for at least 4 days (all day, mind you) and I have found other issues on my side: - Unable to input zero on quantity in the Checkout Table - No account is created under new customer in admin even if the password fields are filled out - Must have at least one shipping module that does not have a Shipping Zone selected to see Shipping Selection Table Aside from these problems, I have some questions for you. I notice that on the admin side under the OPC there are 4 fields: - Custom Column Box #1 Heading - Custom Column Box #1 Content - Custom Column Box #2 Heading - Custom Column Box #2 Content What are they? Are they supposed to show up somewhere? I have not seen them show anywhere and I was wondering what is their purpose. Just curious on this one. The other first issues I'm simply stumpped! Thanks! ski p.s. I don't know if it will make any difference, but I will remove all the files and re-install them using a PC this time. At this point I am trying anything ;)

    Hi Steve! No, no STS. Here is a list of the contributions I have on my site (this is a live site): Options as Images PayPal IPN v2.3.3 USPS (not installed) Fedex (Fedex1 not installed) Google Checkout for OsC That's about it! My original Table Rate is not called that anymore, but that was a change in the language file description only. The table is still the original one. I will do a compare to make sure and should I find any modifications I will post it here. I have done my best to keep my site as simple as possible and thus I don't install as many contributions to avoid conflicts. Simple, in my case, is better! :) Thanks again. ski

    Hi Steve! Yes all of my Table Rate have been modified according to these duplicating Table Rate instructions. All of them have been working correctly for over an year now without a hitch. The tables still work fine in OPC as long as I have at least one of the shipping modules without SHIPPING ZONE selected. So I am pulling my hair out, because I have no idea why that is the case. :angry: Another thing I also have come across and you can see that for yourself on the Test Page. Is that if a customer decides to delete one of the items in the shopping cart inside to the OPC (by entering zero for the quantity) the item does not get deleted, however the total for that item is now zero (you can see that on the test page). On my site, however, I am unable to change the quantity to zero. If I enter the value zero, it automatically changes back to 1. I can increase the quantity amount fine, but I cannot changed it to zero. It always defaults to 1. The only way I can change the quantity to zero (or delete the item) is by leaving the OPC and going to the cart and remove the item from there. I love this contribution, but I am almost ready to give up. I know enough php only to get me into trouble, so I am by no means a php guru. I'm simply good at following instructions and occasionally solve small php problems. :D Thanks again for your continued effort in trying to help me solve this puzzle! ski

    Hi Steve! Yes, all my table rates are stock OsC RC2a. I have copied the stock one and rename them so that I can use them with Shipping Zone. I do have other shipping contributions, but I do not use them. I strictly use Tables with SHIPPING ZONE. I don't think it is a Table Rate problem. I am pretty sure that it is a SHIPPING ZONE issue as I explained on my last post. I have tried the stock Table Rate and Flat Rate and they only work if I DO NOT select Shipping Zone. Furthermore It doesn't matter if I try to create an account by setting up a password or not! In my case, I MUST have at least one shipping method without "shipping zone" in order to work! Does your Table Rate have Shipping Zone selected? If not, try creating a shipping zone and see if you get the same result on your site. (Please make sure that all of your shipping methods have a "shipping zone" selected) Thanks again for all your help. ski

    Hi Steve! Great call! :thumbsup: It works, but ONLY if I use at least one shipping method that does not use "Shipping Zone"! I initially thought I had to have the Flat Rate shipping activated, but after extensive testing I figured out that it does not matter with shipping method you use as long as at least one of them does not use "Shipping Zone". I have tried with and without the modifications from emmet11 and noticed that his modification indeed works best! I think that the reason I initially had issues with his modification was due to the cache not being emptied. I have since meticulously tested after clearing the cache, cookies and browser history to make sure. My shop sells worldwide, thus the need for Shipping Zones in my case. And now that I get the Shipping Method Table to appear showing the shipping options only when I have at least one shipping module without a "Shipping Zone" I few I'm making progress. :) Another thing I noticed is that the information all gets send to PayPal (I use PayPay IPN module v2.3.3) correctly, which is good. However if a customer decides to go back to the website by either hitting the "cancel and return to shop" link or the back browser button all the information entered on the OPC is lost, which is bad. The cart information is not lost, but the shipping, billing, etc. information just entered by the customer is gone. Is that supposed to happen? (note: only tested on Safari . . . I'm a Mac :) ) Any ideas on how I can bypass this "NO shipping zone" in at least one shipping module requirement in order for the Shipping Method Table to appear? Thanks for your insight. That was a great call ;) Best regards, ski

    Hi Steve! As promised, this is my report on my findings :) I did a file compare and found no modifications on the catalog/checkout_shipping.php (aside from simple page formatting), it is basically an OsC RC2a stock file. So, I am stumped on why I do not get the Shipping Selection Table to show. :'( Here is what I was able to observe however. I noticed that although I do not get the Shipping Selection Table to show, I do see that the Shipping Method (from my table rate) does show on the "Shopping Cart" and "Add Comments About Your Order" Tables. Please see figures below! Image showing Shopping Cart Table with correct shipping and taxes charges Image showing the absence of Shipping Selection Table Now, if I make the changes suggested by emmet11 on post 1449036, I no longer get neither the shipping nor taxes information to appear on either of the tables (Shopping Cart and Add Comments About Your Order). I would put the images here, but I do not want to make this post gigantic and besides, I am sure you understand what I mean. ;) Thus, at least in my case, this is quite puzzling. I will keep at it and see if I can discover more info to share. (Please note that I am using the latest OPC, version 1.08) Thanks again for all the help you and others have been given us. It is much appreciated! :D

    One Page Checkout Support

    Hi everyone! First of all, thank you for this great contribution and for everyone who continues to help on making it better. I have read most of the posts, and either I missed it entirely or this has not been an issue with anyone, but I am unable to get this contribution to work with Table Rates. Is that a known issue? Does anyone have it working with table rates? I have several tables and that is all I use for calculation shipping! This is my issue: Whenever I try to go through checkout I don't get the "Shipping Method" table to display. Instead if I click on the "Continue" button at the bottom I get a pop-up window that says "Shipping Selection Error" with "You must select a shipping method." . . . . . Well duh! I would if I could get the shipping selection table to appear. Any help on this issue will save some of the few hairs I have left :) Thank you! p.s. Issue is independent of browser or platform Mac or PC

    One Page Checkout and table shipping

    I have just installed the latest contribution (http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6646) as well and have hit the same hurdle. I have not tried to figure it out yet, as I only installed it last night. But I will take a crack at it and should I find the solution, I will be sure to post it here. I have, however, contacted the developers of the contribution and did report the "Bug" to them with screen shots and all. Since they do not support it (for free anyways) I doubt that they will get back to me in a timely manner. Oh well, I guess we are on our one on this one. :( Perhaps, someone with great php skills will help us out. We can always hope, right? :D Cheers!

    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    Hi Nixo. Thank you very much for the reply. I will try your fix and post the results here later. My only problem has been the lack of the Order # on Paypal. I did check the database and found that my orders_total, orders_products and orders_status_history tables is being correctly populated with the order_id there, but somehow that order_id is not being passed on to Paypal. Since I do have a couple of stores I use a single letter (i.e. M) to identify each store as suggested by Terra so that there aren't duplicate orders. However, oddly enough that single letter does show on Paypal but not the number (order_id) that follows the letter. In any event I will try this and see what happens. Thank you again for sharing your fix. Best regards, ski NOTE: No changes had been made on the Paypal mod and the order id just vanished from my orders without me doing a single thing. Very weird. Must be the dreaded Godaddy ghost!

    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    Hi Nixo. Could you please elaborate a bit more on what modifications you had to make in order for Paypal to show your the order #? I've been ignoring the issue for a while now, but I sure would love to have it fixed. Thank you. ski

    Official PayPal IPN Support Thread

    Hello. I have upgraded my site to the latest OSC version 2.2 RC2a and I have also upgraded to PayPal IPN 2.3.3. I have one little issue that I'd like to see if anyone has encountered or if anyone have a fix. When a customer places an order and pays via PayPal my order number is not passed on to PayPal correctly. I have made the modification suggested by Terra on a previous PayPal version and when I upgraded to the current 2.3.3 version I merged that modification to reflect in the new PayPal 2.3.3 version. So when PayPal sends me a notification, instead of having my order number listed in the "Invoice ID" all I get is the Unique Letter suggested by Terra's modification. The order number appears fine in the OSC admin side, but not in PayPal thus I believe that perhaps the IPN is not passing the entire information (at least the number portion of the order). I did not have this problem in the previous version, so I am a bit lost here. Could someone please help me solve this issue? Thank you! ski
