    Hi @bsmitheris there an update on this topic?

    I am hoping that in a new update of CubeCart in the future, there maybe a checkbox option in admin which allows digital downloads to be bought without having to fill out the billing/delivery address? Is this something that maybe possible @Al Brookbanks?

    Most payment methods require a billing address as establishments are required by law to keep tax records. Selling without knowing your customer isn't widely considered to be acceptable in civilised countries so there are no plans to remove billing address from the checkout I'm afraid.


  2. We are pleased to release the 3rd beta of Cubecart version 6.5. This release further improves on the Elasticsearch integration with better and more accurate search results. Search as you type has been much improved as well as the addition of filters and stemming e.g. Matching fishing to fish.

    After upgrade please reindex Elasticsearch from the Maintenance section of your store admin control panel. For further information about CubeCart 6.5 please refer to the previous two announcements.

    I don't know if one has to do with the other but I thought I'd throw it out there.  Since I upgraded to CC6.4.2 I get logged out of admin a lot more frequently.  I try to keep it open mostly since I'm usually working on a lot of things.

    Why are you on 6.4.2 and not 6.4.4?

    If you uploaded and allowed the upload to overwrite, perhaps it is the case that the new package has the admin folder and file still named "admin", whereas your properly installed package has had its admin folder and file renamed to the randomized hash suffix syntax.

    If so, you will need to rename the new package's admin folder and file to be what the existing folder and file is (after deleting or renaming the older admin folder and file).


    That makes a lot of sense.

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for your insight, but you don't know my hosting setup. 😉

    I do have the ability of installing ES (confirmed with them), just that I don't have a beefier server to perform for huge traffic. I'm wondering if it's doable as my visitor numbers are very low (I'd say 1k users a week or so) so the amount of time they use the search box will be lower. All I need to do is to tweak to see if it can work, or like mentioned earlier, I use external cloud provider to offset the load.

    Would be a good way for me to test & feedback.

    Looking forward to hearing how you get on.

  6. We are pleased to announce the release of CubeCart 6.5.0 beta 2. This is a beta release and may not be suitable for production stores. If you are not interested in adding Elasticsearch to your store or if it is not available via your hosting provider we do not recommend installing or upgrading to this release of 6.5.0. 

    What's New?
    This release adds to the pervious beta with super fast search as you type.

    How do I get Elasticsearch working?

    1. CubeCart will require Elasticsearch to be installed on your server. Please find instructions at the URL below:
    2. Once installed it can be enabled via the Advanced section of your Store Settings
    3. Finally, you'll need to index your current inventory. To do this visit the Elasticsearch tab in the Maintenance section of your store control panel. Once indexed it should maintain itself.

    Release Notes
    Regrettably this powerful new feature is unlikely to be available for merchants using typical shared generic web hosting. Please check with your hosting provider or server administrator.

  7. Hi Tony,

    Beta 2 will be available early next week worth waiting.

    Can't see any reason why it won't work with Opensearch.

    It should just be a matter of adding a line to you includes/global.inc.php file. Set the domain and port. I don't know if authentication is needed but this isn't something that is supported yet. Please let me know.

    $glob['elasticsearch_hosts'] = array('localhost:9200');

    Yes please! I have been using Click & Drop for over a year and whilst I don't do a huge quantity, it would certainly help. Yes I agree, Cubecart is not as big as Shopify but who wants to be! Come on Royal Mail do the right thing by your existing users.   

    Hi Anne,

    I've added this extension to your store for you. Have a look at the Documentation tab here to get stated: https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/plugins/royal-mail-click-drop
