Multi_Vendor_Shipping new thread

Recommended Posts

Going to start over from scratch. Did the catalog side today using compare and merge. Saw no diffs except for possible differencies in 2.3x and 2.33. Must be on the admin side.

 

What version is the alpha version based?

 

thanks!!

That was done on a heavily modified 2.3.1. I haven't had the time to clean it up and port it to 2.3.3. There should not be that many differences with 2.3.3, and probably none inside the MVS change blocks.

I didn't find any diffs in the MVS sections. The hardest is the admin/category file. MVS, Header Tags, SEO URLS and Add More Fields like being in the same places. If you look at the checkout_ files and compare them from the files in 2.3.3 you can see some changes, but I doubt that's what's causing the problem since I have tried using the files from the mvs package and still get the same errors.

 

Pretty sure its on the admin side.

Merry 1st day back to work after Christmas, fellow MVS-ers!

 

I seem to have lost track of how vendors_prod_comments is ever displayed to the customer. I've been digging through old files and old downloads of MVS but I can't figure it out.

 

Am I mistaken? What is this field used for and where does it show on the customers side?

 

Thanks in advance for any insight.

I haven't ever used this field, but I think it was intended to only show on the Admin side. You could make it show on the store side if you wanted to add some code to do that.

I have a photography website that I made using iWeb on my macbook. I am now trying to get to the point where I can set things up to sell prints, canvas prints, and photo books on my site. My host provider has oscommerce as one of the options to utilize.

I think I have the products portion okay, but am having difficulty understanding the shipping portion. My plan is to utilize the same shipping methods and rates that my online lab utilizes. Those are USPS, UPS 2nd day, and UPS overnight. Each seem to be set up with a basic rate for one item and additional per unit above that. I would like to have my customers place the order on my site, pay, hopefully using the paypal system (which I still need to add onto my site), and I will place the order through my 'lab' with the products being directly shipped to the customer.

Is this all possible, and, if so, can anyone please help me get there? As I read through the forum topics and discussions, I very quickly get lost with the codes, modules, add ons, etc. I really am green to all this and don't have much of a clue where to go from here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. Do you need different shipping methods for different groups of products, or do you want to offer all three for all products? The former requires MVS, while the latter is stock osCommerce.

 

2. Do you want live quotes from USPS and UPS with the latest rates, or do you want fixed rates that you have to update yourself? Your current system seems to use the latter.

Jim

Thanks for getting back to me Jim. I would like to offer all three shipping methods for all products and fixed rates that I can change as necessary.

 

Thanks again!

You can do that without MVS. Look in the Addons section for the Multi-Zone Multi-Table (MZMT) module. There are setup instructions included, and I believe that it has a support thread in this forum.

Is anyone else getting this message on their checkout_shipping page?

 

Warning: usort() expects parameter 2 to be a valid callback, class 'upsxml' does not have a method 'rate_sort_func' in /home/protecom/public_html/includes/modules/vendors_shipping/upsxml.php on line 420

 

I did a seach and came up with nothing

That method was supposedly added to sort the returned rates by cost. It's on line 1176 of my copy of upsxml.php. The method looks like this:

 

// Next function used for sorting the shipping quotes on rate: low to high is default.
 function rate_sort_func ($a, $B) {

  $av = array_values($a);
  $av = $av[0];
  $bv = array_values($B);
  $bv = $bv[0];

//  return ($av == $bv) ? 0 : (($av < $bv) ? 1 : -1); // for having the high rates first
 return ($av == $bv) ? 0 : (($av > $bv) ? 1 : -1); // low rates first

 }

 

If you don't need to sort the returned rates, you could just comment out the line with the error. If you do want to sort, add that code somewhere in the class.

Thanks Jim that worked great!

 

Heres another for you. I activated the free shipping module in mvs and it works fine until the customer gets to the checkout shipping page. The system is looking for the customer to select the shipping method for the order, which would be free shipping when the order is over the minimum. But there is no button or box for the customer to select. If you click continue the page reloads with a warning to please select a shipping method.

 

Any ideas?

Thanks

Matt

I don't know why that is not working. It should be possible to select the method, in fact it should be selected by default. Try adding another module (such as Flat) to that vendor and see what happens.

You can just use the flat rate module and set the cost to 0. Change the title to Free Shipping and you're done.

 

I have no idea why the free shipping module doesn't work.

OK, after many winmerge compares of different free shipping mods and not finding a single difference, I finally found the answer.

 

If you enable free shipping in your admin panel/vendor section you must also go into admin panel-Modules-Order Total-Shipping, then click edit for the shipping line and change allow free shipping from true to false. This then allows the new MVS free shipping mod to enable!

Three days of work for one simple change!

Hope this helps someone else!

I hope someone here can help me. My PHP programming skills are only adequate to install mods, test them, and implement them on my 2.2 rc2 site. I have MVS 1.2.3 installed, and it has been working since it was released. Last March I got myself in a crunch with the USPS Web Tools API change. I was unable to get anything to work well, including any mods here. Up against the clock, I found the USPS Rate V4 Intl Rate V2 thread, and mangaged (just barely) to get that mod to work for me. The problem with that, that is still haunting me, is that installing it worked, the rates are correctly downloading from USPS, BUT after installation, I noticed that I could no longer go into my Modules admin. All modules, not just shipping modules, just give me a blank white screen. Again, rates work, but with the current situation I am unable to make any changes to any modules. Everything else in admin displays perfectly, but I can't even click on modules in the admin box without the blank white page. I have looked through the code (to the best of my abilities) and can find no reason for this. My admin Vendors displays fine.

 

I am trying to fix this, but I don't know how to start. For one thing I can't use admin to remove or add modules. I have backups of the previous files, so I would like to ask how to back out these changes long enough to install a working MVS/USPS V4 fix.

USPS has changed their API again. I've modified the USPS module for MVS and it seems to work. You can find the code here temporarily. Uninstall your module before installing this one to use all of the changes.

 

I have tested this on my test store, but I would really like to have others test this out and see if it works. Please post here if you have tried this code. If it works I'll add it to the main distribution.

 

@@rwest If you are still having problems, try just uploading this one over your old copy. If it lets you into your Admin, then uninstall and reinstall.

Jim

Hello,

I installed MVS in my oscommerce 2.3.3 but I have this problem at checkout_confirmation.php

Warning: strpos() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in C:\xampp\htdocs\enoosc\shop\includes\classes\vendor_shipping.php on line 46

Any Idea. I installed also Credit Class and gift voucher and discount coupon. Any idea about this warning?

Do you know if there are problem if MVS and credit class are installed in the same oscommerce??

 

Thanks for your help

Marco

You have a broken module in includes/modules/vendor_shipping/. If you've added something to that folder that's not supplied with this addon, try removing that temporarily and see if the error stops. If you haven't added anything, then go delete each file, one at a time, until the error stops. Once you know which module is causing the problem, you'll have to debug that module if it's one that you need, or just leave it out if you don't need it.

 

I have installed MVS along with CCGV in other stores. I don't remember any problems with that. I don't know which discount coupon addon you are using, but none of them should conflict with MVS.

Jim
