Purchase Without Account Updated & Admin Functionality

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been successful with integrating this with any paypent module, if so which ones? How about authorize.net?

 

Thanks

Danny

 

I think I know what you are asking. Today I installed PWA and it is working with Paypal.

anyone know where I can edit the corner_left1.gif & corner_right images? I would like to get rid of them.

I tried everything and this is the only thing that worked

 

Quick and dirty way...Find: pixel_trans.gif, make a copy and rename it corner_right_left.gif. Repeat for corner_right.gif and corner_left.gif.Upload them to the server, overwriting the existing image files. From AlanR

 

Note the files are in the images/infobox area

i have searched this entire topic but didn't find a solution?

 

i just received an order via paypal, i wouldn't have even known this - if i didn't get a confirmation from paypal.

 

there is no record in the database and no information on paypal's notification, (just says my store name)

 

i am using the stock osc paypal module, everything else works perfectly.

 

any suggestions??

 

it would be ideal to have this information recorded in the database & have an email sent to me as well (when someone orders by money order or cash, this works perfectly)

if the customer does not come back from paypal to your site this problem appears you should upgrade to one of paypal ipn modules search in the forum to find the want you want to use

can you suggest one? i don't really care about the features of the module, i just want the orders saved to my database and to receive a copy of their order via email.

 

i don't really know what to look for in an IPN, to be quite honest..

There is an alternative next to installing one of the Paypal IPN's. It is called Held Orders and although I do not use it personally it looks like a good alternative. You can find it here

If you look for a Paypal IPN the one from the osCommerce team is to be consdered

thanks for the suggestions guys :)

 

with either of the contributions suggested, i do not have ssl at the moment. will my customer recieve any kind of warning before or after checkout?

 

or will they proceed to checkout like any regular site (for example, smooth checkout as if they were using the paypal cart)?

No warnings to your customers during checkout. As Paypal has it's own secured site that is fine for the actual payment, if people like to fill in their names/addresses etc and go through checkout without you having SSL is another question.

sorry, i don't understand this comment?

 

 

i have shared ssl available to me, but in the little lock icon, it shows my server url (not my homepage url) -- so wouldn't some customers see that as a red flag?

the ssl certificate also makes use of my cpanel name, can anybody actually see this? the thought of my cpanel username being plastered on the site makes me a tad uncomfortable.

 

if i were to use shared ssl, i don't want the entire page being ssl. just the login & checkout pages.. my host's ssl certificate is given to us like https://secure.sever.myhostdomain.com/~cpan...rturl/index.php

 

any advice?

I just meant that if you don't have SSL with your own shop there probably will be people who do not want to register and/or order through your site.

A lot of people use shared SSL, having your own would probably be best however (it's not too expensive these days). You can configure your shop dat SSL is only used for login/registering and checkout.

Look in your admin/includes/configure.php and catalog/includes/configure.php for setting up https.

okay, i will try it :)

how would i configure the ssl to work only in my login and checkout pages? i don't know what to look for. i see the SSL line, but i'm a bit in the dark as to how to make it work only on the specified pages.

That's easy. Look in your admin/includes/configure.php for

  define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://www.yourdomain.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
 define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', 'http://www.yourdomain.com');
 define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://www.yourdomain.com');
 define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'false'); // secure webserver for catalog module

The fourth one tells to leave the catalog shopping part without SSL and then SSL only applies for checkout and login/registering/customer detail pages.

The first one makes your admin operate in SSL

 

In your catalog/includes/configure.php you have

  define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.yourdomain.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
 define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.yourdomain.com'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
 define('ENABLE_SSL', true); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?

The third one enables/disables SSL for your logon/checkout.

... what URL should i use for all of these? my certificate is given in this format:

https://secure.sever.myhostdomain.com/~cpanelname/mycarturl/index.php

I have no experience with shared SSL but of what I read on the board you should get something like

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.yourdomain.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers
define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://secure.sever.myhostdomain.com'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

in your catalog/includes/configure.php

 

Then for your cookie domain settings you should make the same difference

  define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.yourdomain.nl');
 define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'secure.sever.myhostdomain.com');

 

Try searching for shared SSL on the board if it gives you trouble, there should be enough threads on this topic to give you a good idea how to configure for this.

i swear i came across a "how to install a shared ssl" tutorial a few days ago, but i skipped past it :'(

i did a forum-wide search for +ssl +install and +shared +ssl but all that came up was a lot of problems people were having... nothing that told me how to install it.

 

i could ask my host, but i'd rather be able to see it in action before i leave it on my site.

 

could you point me in the right direction :)

thank you for your help

Well, you have the right direction in my previous post. There shouldn't be more to it given the SSL is correctly setup with your host.

I have a problem when check out:

 

Secure connection: fatal error (47)

Transmission failure.

 

I think this because I do not use SSL for my store.

How to fix it? many thanks

Hi all,

 

I have installed the Purchase Without Account contribution but when my customer is sent an automated invoice link they are unable to access it. The link tries to direct them to account_history_info.php but this re-directs them to login.php and asks them to login.

 

I'd imagine it's because account_history_info.php is asking for some sort of session and refusing access if one doesn't exist......can anyone help?

 

Thanks,

Simon

Then you are missing something from the installation for PWA. PWA customers should not receive a link to their account history because they are not supposed to have any.

Hello,

 

I don't know why this just started happening out of nowhere, but for some reason when a new customer enters their address information and clicks "continue", the page hangs for a really long time and then they get "page cannot be displayed". However, if the customers account was already created previously, they can checkout without any problems. Any ideas what the problem can be? I haven't done anything to the site and it was working fine before.

 

Thanks,

Paul

Hello Everyone,

 

I have been using this contrib for a few months now and everything works great with it but a few minor details that I think confuses customers. The current "Order_Info" page displays the following:

 

Your Personal Details

Gender: Male Female *

First Name: *

Last Name: *

E-Mail Address: *

 

Company Details

Company Name:

 

Your Address

Street Address: *

City: *

State/Province: *

Post Code: *

Country: *

 

Your Contact Information

Telephone Number: *

Fax Number:

 

However I think this tends to confuse customers (at least mine) and they still think they are signing up for an account and end up leaving my site because of it. I am trying to figure out a way to make it display something similar to the following:

 

Your Billing Information

Gender: Male Female *

First Name: *

Last Name: *

E-Mail Address: *

Company Name:

Street Address: *

City: *

State/Province: *

Post Code: *

Country: *

Telephone Number: *

Fax Number:

 

where everything is together in one box and lets the customer know that we are seeking their billing information. If anyone has done this or has an idea how to do this to their PWA contrib please let me know. Otherwise I'll keep hacking away at it.

 

Thanks in advance!!
