Ebay auction manager for OSCOMMERCE

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where to find the 'auction.php' file that seems to be missing from the contribution? I keep watching the board but no one replies.

 

Help!

I wasn't aware it was missing. Is it missing from the MS1 or MS2 contrib?

 

 

auctionblox,

Is there an easy way to clear out the completed auctions? Possibily link them to the order that's created, and when the order is shipped remove them? I now have several hundred auctions, and it'll take a while to go through and figure out which ones are complete and delete them one by one. At the minimum, how about a checkbox next to them, and check the ones you want deleted.

I just downloaded it, I found auction.php in the following location:

\new files (just copy)\admin\includes\boxes

 

I believe that is the only one that I have in my install as well.

I found it, I thought that this was in infobox used in the catalog. But it is used in the admin.

I'm sorry to keep asking this question about the 'auctions.php' file but, I'm just not getting it.

 

I found an 'auctions.php' file in catalog\includes\boxes however the line of code I'm instructed to look for in the directions is not there.

 

This is the file I have :

 

<?php

/*

Auctions Infobox, v 1.0 2002/12/04 by Jesse Labrocca

 

osCommerce

*/

?>

<!-- Auctions Info Box //-->

<tr>

<td>

<?php

$info_box_contents = array();

$info_box_contents[] = array('align' => 'left',

'text' => BOX_HEADING_AUCTIONS

);

new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, true, true);

 

$info_box_contents = array();

$info_box_contents[] = array('align' => 'center',

'text' => '<a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_CURRENT_AUCTIONS) . '"><img src="images/ebay.gif" border="0"><br>' . '</a><br>'

);

 

new infoBox($info_box_contents);

?>

</td></tr>

<!-- Auctions_eof //--> [code]

 

I appreciate any help on this :D

reelwild,

What part of the instructions are you referring to? I am looking in the 'CHANGES_MS2.txt' file that came with the contrib. The only reference I see is for 'auction_header.php'

Please clarify where the instructions are asking you to edit the auction.php file, and what lines it's looking for.

Actually,, what you are refering to is not dealing with this mod.

There is another auction mod that the only thing it does is grab u'r ebay auctions from ebay and display them on the u'r web site itself.

This mod actually is dealing with getting the info and bringing it into osc and allowing checkout and completion of the auction.

Tom

reelwild, what contrib are you talking about? Are you talking about my Current Auctions contrib? Oh, It looks like you are tring to install the ebay logo box submitted by Jesse.

 

First of all the auctions.php info box should be uploaded to:

 

/catalog/includes/boxes

 

Then add this to your /catalog/includes/column_left.php or /catalog/includes/column_right.php

 

include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'auctions.php');

 

 

Last upload the ebay.gif to your images directory

 

/catalog/images

 

Hope that helps! :rolleyes:

So, on to other things I have started working on revising auctionblox's contrib. In stead of a whole seperate thing I am going to set it up so the auction info is just another category in the catalog. This way you would be able to check out as normal and would not have payment problems. This new method would be able to be used in catalogs used for stores and auction manager as well as people like myself that just use my store as a auction manager.

 

What do you think?

:unsure:

Sneaky little devils aren't you B)

 

After more investigation on the contributions page, I see that there are actually 2 different downloads there. I just downloaded the latest assuming that it was an all inclusive modification, not an add-on.

 

Well, that solves the problem. Sorry to have bothered y'all.

ive just downloaded this incredible contribution, but i cannot find the auction checkout contribution that the installation readme says i need:

You must install Purchase Without Account and Auction Checkout for osCommerce MS2 PRIOR to installing this
contribution.  You are not required to enable Purchase Without Account in your osCommerce store,
but it is necessary for the correct operation of the auction checkout.

anyone know where i can find this? a link here woudl be helpful. thx all.

here is the ebay manager that I assume you are talking about.

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1577

 

you must download the ebay sales manager and the auto update, as they are currently two different parts that go together,, and are being merged to my understanding.

 

hope this helps

You are right Qwiz. These three contribs all go togethor

 

Purchase Without Account :

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,355

 

Auction Checkout for osCommerce MS2:

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1577

 

Auto Update v1_0

 

http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1577

 

Update on current progress: Good news I sucessfully have added a seperate catalog to MS2 for auction products only that can be added to the normal shopping cart and is able to check out as normal. This is great because you can use the auction item as a template with normal check out functionality. Also you could put something in shopping_cart.php to encourage the customer to check out your normal store before checking out. Hmm, could boost sales.....

Just have to build admin side, integrate Auto Update and Job Scheduler, design auction invoice, and any other small things. Also I have been thinking about the auto email at the end of the auction but that may have to wait.

:D :D

I'm having a problem with this contribution.

 

I've installed PWA http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,355

I've now installed the Auction Checkout http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1577

 

I've created a test auction.

 

Try to check out using the test auction and I can't get past the screen where you enter all the address details

 

Can someone please test it out.

 

The test account is test@test.com

http://jigsaw-computers.com/store/auction_finder.php

 

This is now the third time i've tried this set up, so i'm sure i'm not keying something wrong.

i tried installing this but when i open up the admin page -> auctions, it give me a blank list saying:

 

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: display_count_ex() in /home/designi/public_html/catalog/admin/auction_listing.php on line 167

 

is the list supposed to populate automatically. i have a few active auctions already. AND my www.designimportsinc.com/catalog/auction_finder.php is just a blank template. whats going wrong?

Your right. I tested it and It sticks at the entered info confirmed screen. Mine does'nt do that. Hmm, I bet there is something wrong with the form. Maybe it is missing a required variable?

 

Hope this helps.

Well, since this seems to be the only thread that acually has helpful people in it, I'll try my luck here.

 

I'm trying to be able to sort what are auction orders and not. Best way I can tell to do that is that all my web orders ship via Priority Mail, and the Auction orders ship via "Best Way". Does anyone know where the Shipping Method is stored for each order? I looked in the 'orders' table, but I couldn't find a field that looked like it was it. I have MS2.

 

Thanks!!

 

 

dimports, smitty1 isn't doing any charging for an automation piece, auctionblox is. Smitty1 is trying to come up with a free alternative. Auctionblox never stated how much or anything, and I believe he's not allowed to further discuss it on this thread.

oh, i just downloaded smitty1's update contribution.. very nifty. thanks for the contribution guys. but i keep getting an error in each auction header saying '[ERROR: Not set]'. anyone know what that means.

 

anyways, i got a plan on a ebay contribution idea:

i want to be able to just browse my shopping cart and click on a "list on eBay" button and program will take description field, price, etc and roll it up in a ready made auction for you to list in an auction... maybe even logging into ebay and filling the fields for you. just one click from the shopping cart. anyone think this contribution is possible? i already have a template generator written in perl that asks for image, description, price, etc and rolls it up into a webpage. then i right click on the page and view source and copy source and paste it into ebay's description field.
