  1. Yesterday
  2. CubeCart is very good at figuring out where it is. But this is based on what the web server tells PHP in the $_SERVER array (you can see this array in admin, PHP Info, near the bottom). Clear the cache first (as CubeCart wants to use the FQDN URL in the HTML snippet having the list of categories and was cached). So, just tell the web server (vhost file) what new domain name it is to answer to, keeping the 'rootdoc' directory the same.
  3. Hi there, here is what l wrote about that, it's a weak spot of my post: "(ASSUMPTIONS: presumably you can use OSS even if you are below the EU VAT registration threshold, and apparently you won't need to even be UK VAT registered)" And yes, if you don't use an IOSS number, then your customers will get their items later, and they'll have a customs clearance fee on top of the tax and duties to pay. With IOSS, they'd get it faster, with tax and duties having already been paid at P.O.S., and there won't be a customs clearance fee.
  4. Thanks. What do you forsee happening if l reassigned my existing cubecart shop (no products yet, just categories, T&C docs, reCaptcha IPN, etc.) to a new URL with my managed hosting company's help? Could l get off to a running start with the "new" shop (= old shop, under a new domain name)?
  5. You could copy/paste the file /cache/abcde.html.skin.menu.lang.cache, but it won't last long, and you will be taken by surprise when it happens. I see code in the admin Product Import feature that looks at a heading named 'cat_id' which will accept either a comma-separated list of ID numbers, or a comma-separated list of category names. I think each item in the name list can be expressed as a slash-separated hierarchy of category names. The first item in the list will be the item's primary category. But the most easiest is to have phpMyAdmin export the CubeCart_category database table to a SQL type of file, then import that SQL file via phpMyAdmin to the other database.
  6. Hi there, I want to create another CubeCart installation. The category tree was very time consuming, and so it's daunting to do that all over again. Any hints on how to quickly replicate the tree? Ideas l'm toying with: 1. Upload my inventory spreadsheet, which mentions the categories of each item. Would that auto-create those categories, seeing as they don't actually exist in the new CubeCart instance l'm setting up? 2. Copy ---> paste a file containing the category tree. Where would such a file be located?
  7. Thanks for explaining this. @bsmitheri'd give you £10 for a "Buy N Get [CHEAPEST] X Free" code snippet, especially if l can overlay multiple such deals over one product page, or one category or the entire inventory, i.e. whatever it is l overlay it over, as long as l can overlay multiple simultaneous promos that'd be great. I mean: Promo #1: Buy 5, Get 1 Free Promo #2: Buy 8 Get 2 Free Promo #3: Buy 10 Get 5 Free If l add 6 items to basket, basket will show the cheapest one as FREE Add 7 items, basket will still show cheapest ONE as free Add 10 items, basket will now switch to promo #2 and show the cheapest TWO as FREE Add 14 items, basket will still show the cheapest TWO as free Add 15 items, basket will now switch to promo #3 and show the cheapest FIVE as FREE
  8. Eddifying, thanks. Please alert me if CubeCart ever has products coded into the inventory upload spreadsheet, because that's the only way it will play with other carts - l want to start out selling via a spectrum of different carts, before maybe narrowing down the number of carts, but even then, it will be multiple carts and thus inventory will need to be transferrable between them, either as .csv or via an inventory management software. What you currently have, will not respond to changes in, say, my Amazon stock level for the same item.
  9. Last week
  10. A payment is considered to be an “installment payment” if the amount for the purchase is debited to the buyer's account in several installments.
  11. I have a few questions/feedback New rank system: I just find it very Signature use in the community is not granted to all of our users.
  12. I would ask that you read these threads. Please follow up with questions if you need more guidance. https://forums.cubecart.com/topic/51635-product-options/ https://forums.cubecart.com/topic/47004-product-options-and-stock-levels-how/ https://forums.cubecart.com/topic/50884-options-matrix-how-does-this-work/
  13. I have experimented with PHP 8, and, yes, there are a couple of things that need changing in the core code. However, one real biggie is that Smarty (the template engine) does not yet work all that reliably under PHP 8 - especially the way CubeCart codes the Smarty templates.
  14. found the error. had something to do with php version of new site. changed it to 7.4 (in stead of 8 ) and it works now
  15. Hi there. How did the demo you showed me manage to acquire a pulldown menu?
  16. Unfortunately, product options is a complicated beast. Options, currently, cannot accompany the products that are to be uploaded via a spreadsheet. This feature (exported list to include options) has been on the books for a long time.
  17. Thanks so much, l was actually wondering why l hadn't mentioned the pulldown options menu or lack thereof, before. Probably because l had seen it already. What is the column heading called in the upload spreadsheet? Product Type? Product Value? It'd be great if you could figure out a basic Buy N Get X Free code snippet or something!
  18. Well, OK, your description above - an option type, Color - as a drop-down selector is entirely within CubeCart's wheelhouse. Please see: https://demo.cubecart.com/cc6/3d-glasses-tdg-br200/w.html.html and note the drop-down selector for Colour. (Also note the Quantity Discounts - not BuyXGetY, but just to point it out.) When all options are chosen off of their "Please Select" choice, there is an ajax call back to the store to get an updated price and stock level. CubeCart has some existing code that would implement a distinct image per option combination, but nowhere near being complete. This plugin may be of interest: https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/plugins/product-option-images As to the BuyXGetY solution, I find a few stores have that. I'm trying to install Drupal Commerce to check it out, but as with most things Linux and Me, that DC ain't getting installed all that easily.
  19. Multivariations and "Buy N Get X FREE" promos, that's all that's stopping me selling mass produced low value items on CubeCart. When l first started playing with CubeCart, my inventory was secondhand one-off stuff, so l could upload straight to CubeCart and leave it at that, but what l want to sell now is as l say: mass produced low value stuff. It can only be done with Buy N Get X Free (selling single items is actually lower profit than specific Buy N Get X Free deals) and it would help tempt buyers if they saw a multivariation ad instead of a single product, but l need both - have single products as the bedrock of the shop, but promoted above all would be the mutlivariation ads, they'd be at the fore, so to speak. Gah ...
  20. Hi there, it's quite simple to me, each advert (aka product page, item page, what ever) has one axis. So: Product page #1: Buy 50ml Glitter - many colours! Product page #2: Buy 500ml MEGA tub of glitter with special dispenser - many colours! Product page #3: Buy glitter-covered greeting card - many colours! So you see, each product page has one axis = the various colours. The other axis of glitter container size is represented by different product pages in themselves ... with added axis of various colours to choose from. Another axis of glitter related products is represented by ... you guessed it, a different product page (in this case, glitter-coated greetings card) ... with added axis of various colours to choose from. This is what l mean, it's so simple: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/183701786377 Note also how clicking on one drop down menu option also calls up its corresponding photo from the photo carousel to the left .... but l'm not demanding this feature, l'm keeping it simple, l just want a way to create a drop down menu for multivariations. Multivariations are a standard feature IMO, many carts and online marketplaces have them as standard columns in their upload spreadsheets. If you don't cater for multivariations by default, then people can't translate inventory into your cart ... so you risk isolation. As for out of stock options, that could either be done by chatting with a multichannel inventory management software creator (l'm thinking of names like Nembol, Linnworks, Shopify? Bigcommerce? Sellro, etc. etc. etc. there are so many, spanning every price bracket, but managing your stock levels across all platforms that you sell on is one of their most basic functions that's why so many softwares can be approached to work with your platform, because they all have stock level management as a basic function) ... or by uploading CSV (bear in mind that low stock level warnings can be set fairly high to give ample notice, so even if CubeCart won't integrate with any inventory management softwares, your other platforms that do integrate will give you ample warning when you're running low on stock, and so you can quickly update CubeCart with a CSV ahead of your usual CSV update day). NOTE: OK l'll admit the eBay ad l posted just now isn't the best example, because in itself, it integrates 2 axes (size and colour) but imagine an advert with just one pulldown menu ... that's all l ask really. The ability to create ads with 2 pulldown menus like the eBay one l just posted would be amazing but l'm not wanting to complicate matters ...
  21. But that brings up a issue that a product can have several types of options assigned to it. For example: Size (S,M,L,XL), Color: (Green, Red, Yellow, Black). This results in a 4X4 grid and is easily displayed (pigeonhole). But then add: Neck (Crew-Neck, V-Neck, Polo-Neck). Scaling up a grid is difficult to do without some innovative javascript to get it displayed. However, when(if) that can be done, we now have a path to blank out those option combinations (pigeonholes) that are out of stock.
  22. Got it! That would require just a bit of custom coding in the 'content.product.php' and 'element.product_options.php' templates. All the data is available in these templates -- the data just needs to be reconfigured into distinct 'submit-able' buttons for each option assigned to the main product. The list of choices could be a drop-down selector, but might be better as a grid/list of keywords or color blobs.
  23. The phpMyAdmin application is readily available in your hosted account's control center. It is also fairly easy to understand -- able to work your way around without having first to have read the manual. If your hosting provider allows external (remote) access to your database, there are also desktop applications that will get you what you want: HeidiSQL, MySQL Workbench, LibreOffice Base, and numerous others.
  24. Hi there, Nope, this is what l mean: On my website you will find an item for sale, called "Glitter - many colours - £1 per 50g tube!" You click that advert or item if you prefer to call it that. Then you see the product page / item page / advert displayed. It will say: "Glitter - many colours - £1 per 50g tube!" You will see a pull-down menu. The pull-down menu will be populated thus: Brick Red Martian Red Blood Red Grass Green Olive Green Lime Green Royal Blue Sky Blue Navy Blue Neon Yellow Buttercup Yellow Pale Yellow You will click as many of these colours as you wish, with each click adding that colour to your basket. Maybe if you click the same colour twice, you'll get 2 of that colour in your basket, l don't know. But basically, that is what l mean by a multivariation listing.
