  1. By design as the query could get too heavy and crash MySQL in many cases. It's not something you generally see in ecommerce stores for this exact reason.
  2. I don't really want to get involved in that.
  3. I've turned it off. Lets see howe we get on..
  4. Maybe we should turn it off. This forum software is poor at deterring spam.
  5. Yes it's probably a browser extension like AdBlock. https://community.cloudflare.com/t/im-stuck-on-checking-a-site-that-has-cloudflare-and-its-not-mine/538699
  6. True. I've opened a support request with CloudFlare.
  7. Yes it's a pest. We are getting absolutely hammered with spam making the forums almost unusable if we turn attack mode off. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
  8. Sorry about this. Please see https://github.com/cubecart/v6/issues/3384
  9. Hi Russ, I would think that's the "best choice". However I don't know to what extent it could be overkill and if version 5.2.0 requires any more of less resources or if it makes no difference. I wish I understood a little more. There seems to be a lot of discussion as to utf8mb4_0900_ai_ci being a solid choice.
  10. There has been very little resistance in general to upgrading to the new extension with our merchant base but there will always be outliers.
  11. Partners send a BN code across with every transaction. PayPal can see if a transaction is via CubeCart or other platform. Then the same data is sent across as PayPal Standard. I don't agree with your analogy to Henry Ford at all personally. PayPal commerce can be configured to have 3D secure on and off. Cards on and off. Pay Later messaging or or off. Express Checkout on the product detail page on and off. Apple Pay on or off etc.. The platform is adaptable. PayPal Standard also sends across the platform ID too via BN code. Essentially the data shared is pretty much identical.
  12. Interesting. I can feed this back to PayPal. PayPal Commerce asks for more info on sign up due to what's known in the trade as KYC know your customer. In order to confirm your identity as a business and assess risk for providing card services. It's not just PayPal it's across the industry. https://www.paypal.com/c2/webapps/mpp/kyc?locale.x=en_C2 I think also a lot of these requirements are not necessarily demands of PayPal but linked organisation like Visa, MasterCard, ApplePay, Google Pay and even governmental etc...
  13. With PayPal standard your customers have to register on your website filling in their address etc. This is a big sales barrier alone let alone all the other advantages like alternative payment methods. Pay Later, Venmo (US)... Etc. What's the appeal to stay on std? I can't get my head around it.
  14. Please, please, please, forget about Paypal Standard! It's a legacy product that's going to be discontinued by PayPal. PayPal Commerce has far more features and is proven to generate increased sales. Yes maybe these should be disabled if in Sandbox mode. I'll open a feature request for that.

  17. Hi Russ, I don't know of anybody that's done it but I'd imagine it's a bit of a headache. I wish you luck however. If suggest getting a nice bottle of wine in to camp first before undertaking this. Good luck.
  18. If you want to open a bug report at https://github.com/cubecart/v6/issues/new we will have a look.
  19. You can use any size you like. CubeCart will use the power of the browser to max it at a fairly large size and CubeCart will automatically make thumbnails. Saying this if you can keep them to around 1500px max in width or hight you should be in a good place.
