  1. Have you tried contacting Cubecart Support to see if they can help? There may be a small fee but at least you will be talking directly to the developer.
  2. Don't know for sure but don't be tempted to buy likes on FB as I know for sure that will do you no favours. There are lots of other things you can do to create an SEO friendly website apart form FB and Twitter. I would have thought a mobile friendly responsive skin would be an advantage, maybe look at the foundation skin as a starter. On our websites mobile devices make up more than 50% of our visits. Have you viewed your site on a mobile? I've just had a look at your current website skin and it looks like you have some issues with the desktop layout.
  3. In your skins folder find js/vendor/jquery.bxslider.min.js Locate autoControlsSelector:null,auto:!1,pause:4e3, and amend the 4e3 part to another value e.g 2000 for faster or 6000 for slower.
  4. In Store Settings on the General tab you can set the Tax Customer By section to Delivery Address if not already done so.
  5. Yes that's the correct folder. When making any changes that you are unsure of you should always make a store backup. In cPanel you will find a backup wizard. Download a copy of your home directory and database files. If you aren't 100% sure then rename the setup folder to something obscure. If all is well you can delete at a later time.
  6. If you have access to cPanel and Filemanager it will be in the root or public_html folder or if you have installed it in a sub folder e.g. /store it will be in that folder.
  7. You will find it in skins/foundation/templates/content.404.php. You can design your own page content here or replace the given text in file language/definitions.xml
  8. Are you talking about using API to automate the updating of the product feed or the uploading of the product feed? I've looked at some of the info on the Content API pages and it looks like it is designed to do exactly what the automated product feed in the Google merchant account does which we can do quite easily with Cubecart. Updating individual items as the data changes is another matter but for most Cubecart users a daily update I would guess will be more than adequate. I have a store with 8000 items on it and a weekly schedule and it seems to be working fine. Can't find anywhere that says the feed has to be updated immediately if a change occurs. Am I missing something here?
  9. If you follow the steps I suggested Google will automatically update your feed at either daily, weekly or monthly intervals. No more manual updates will be needed.
  10. If you are running a V6 store you need to make sure you have this installed and activated https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/product-feeds/google-base In Store Settings click on the Advanced tab. At the bottom of the page in the Other section enter a password in the Product Feed Access Password box and Save. In Google Merchant go to the Feeds section and add a feed if you haven't already done so. In here you can schedule an automatic feed update to Daily, Weekly or Monthly. You will need a Product Feed URL. To get this in Cubecart admin go to the Export Catalogue section. Set the Products to export option to 25000 and you should end up with a 1 link the Download parts column (provided you don't have more than 25000 products). Now right click on the image at the end of the Google Base row and select Copy Link Location. You can now Paste this value into the Google Merchant File Url Settings box. Once all set up in Google Merchant in the Feeds section click on the Fetch Now link and your data feed should work.
  11. A huge thank you bsmither seems to do exactly what I need.
  12. Thanks Dirty Butter for the suggestion but couldn't find anything relevant when I searched. My problem is that if I leave the stock levels to reduce at a pending order some customers are pressing the back button after going to checkout then retrying to pay which means that they sometimes get a warning saying products no longer in stock. We sometimes end up with the customer having 4 or 5 pending orders in the space of a few minutes. This usually means that we are losing sales and our stock levels are incorrect until we cancel the pending or unpaid orders. I'm now thinking it would be better to set the stock levels to reduce on payment. However because we have several customers who pay by bank transfer I need the print order form orders to go straight to processing and not pending and to reduce the stock levels as if payment had been made.
  13. We have a few customers who pay by bank transfer using the Print Order Form during checkout. Is there a way to get the Print Order Form to set the order to processing and reduce stock levels after the order has been made?
  14. In skins/mican/templates/box.sale_items.php replace {if {$product.saving}}<span class="saving">{$LANG.catalogue.saving} {$product.saving}</span>{/if} with {if {$product.saving}}<p class="price"><span class="price_previous">{$product.price}</span> <span class="price_sale">{$product.sale_price}</span></p>{/if}
  15. If I search for brass and sort the results A-Z then they are there. If I don't change the sorting they are on page 9 of the resuts. It appears that clicking on the show All link isn't showing All the results.
  16. Just searched for brass and brass cab and they are appearing in the results now.
  17. Assuming you only sell digital products I think you will need to set up two different tax classes. One for digital goods that excludes EU countries and one for freebies that includes EU countries and apply each one to the relevant product. Shouldn't be too difficult to test. Are you using the All In One shipping mod? If so then this may also need some change to settings so post back if this is the case.
  18. I think it searches for whole words only. Have you used bsmithers search update at if not try that and it should sort the problem.
  19. I've used the following on a music based website before and it worked well. http://www.schillmania.com/projects/soundmanager2/
  20. This may help http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/opencms/sites/default/IPH/core/qb2k11/contentpackage/Payroll/Common/..\..\\ThirdParty\Excel\ov_msimport.html
  21. You can export your orders database table into a spreadsheet. You would need to check to see if Quickbooks can import from a spreadsheet and what format it requires but would guess it should be doable. If you want to save on ink you can print/save your orders to pdf files and store the files in a folder on your computer. If you go to print your order you may have a print to pdf option on your printer menu, if not you can install Foxit Reader from https://www.foxitsoftware.com/products/pdf-reader/ which will give you the option to save the invoices as pdf files from the print menu.
  22. If you have access to the database tables you can delete them from there. Normally access is gained via cPanel and phpMyAdmin. Alternatively you could just change the customer email address to something else (maybe an email address you have) and then delete the orders.
  23. Thanks Dirty Butter but I don't have a problem with this as I don't add out of stock items to my sitemap by generating my own sitemap file. The point I was trying to make was that if you use the cubecart generated sitemap which includes out of stock products and Google indexes these then the links in the google search to these products appear to give a 404 error. Have you checked your out of stock links in Google? Does it do the same for you?
  24. Ah I see there is a Hide Out Of Stock option. So assume deselecting this solves the 404 issue but shows out of stock products on website too. Hmm not ideal.
