  1. Hi there, it seems to work for me but l'll admit l've done no live testing (l cannot use my own PayPal account as l linked the extension to that account). Have you pressed the "Clear Cache" button?
  2. I'm stuck in a houseshare with only one other person, an actual self harming lunatic, not in a cute way, just a deeply unpleasant person. Al, Nitefox, l'm in the UK too, if you have a heart, can l come and live with you for the next 12 weeks?
  3. OK i figured it out. It goes into the "Source" tab of the document editor. Thanks. Edit: It goes into the "Source" tab with NOTHING changed / substituted, then you can take it from there.
  4. Hi there, the above code is not working. All l am seeing is the code itself being displayed. Please may l have an example of its deployement e.g. how do you replace {$STORE_URL} ? I am replacing it with https://store.myexamplesite.uk/tesa31.html I'm guessing the problem isn't even with how l replace that part.
  5. Hi there, I seem to have written over the code for the slider showing a range of around 3 featured products (sliding them like a carousel). Does anybody have the code for it?
  6. 1. For the default skin (and the other free skins for that matter) you need to make it clear that there are other shipping options available, if the customer would just click on the option to activate the drop-down menu (the other free skins at least have a "down" arrow to indicate other options are available). In fact, better display all options, and have radio buttons to select which shipping option is for you. Why hide them? 2. How to calculate total shipping weight: Don't add up all the weights of multiple items. Encourage shop owners to give the UNPACKAGED weight per item and ALSO supply a calculation formula for TOTAL weight e.g.: Total shipment weight (in grammes, kg, lb, or oz) = (Unpackaged weight + [ENTER BOX WEIGHT: 55 or whatever]) * [ENTER GENERAL FACTOR: 1.12 or whatever] Example: Widget + Widget Ultra + Widget New Latest = 20 grammes + 30 grammes + 40 grammes Total shipment weight would therefore be: (90 grammes + 55 grammes) * 1.12 = 162 grammes CURRENTLY what l'm doing is: bumping up actual weights by, say, 1.16, to give packaged weight per item. Obviously l need to make the formula more complex to add the weight of a cardboard box that is irrespective of the item weight, but that's not CubeCart's problem. The problem is that at checkout, l'm just totalling already-boxed weights for the individual items and therefore giving a moderately higher estimate of total boxed weight for a multi-buy. I'll admit it isn't a major issue either way as total weight will still likely be less than 1kg for my stock, plus l rarely get multi-buys anyway. It could be a problem for others?
  7. UPDATE: Solved. It seems l was using a depreciated version and nobody told me. The version that doesn't work: PayPal Checkout The version that DOES work (just installed now): PayPal Commerce Platform The new plugin also solved the confusing display of PayPal button AND Secure Checkout button. NOW what l see is: Select Stripe OR PayPal THEN go to Secure Checkout It makes much more sense now.
  8. Hi, l think l need to grant CubeCart API permission in PayPal. Please may l ask your "Third Party Permission Username" in order to do this? I am going via PayPal > Settings > Account Settings > API Access > Update > PayPal API > Grant API permission OR Manage API permission (either way, CubeCart isn't listed there). UPDATE: It doesn't matter as l've already configured PayPal to accept payments from uncredentialled (with regard to API access) carts. So l really don't know what the issue with PayPal is.
  9. OK i've just deleted your "inventory_time" module before reading your response, and l still get the error message so yes i think it's a paypal module fault. I had actually seen a link like the one you just gave for the error message and yep it's as vague as the error message, basically saying "Something went wrong, look it up". I'm on a hosted WP account FWIW. Regarding offering a Secure *and* PayPal button that really needs to be explained to visitors. It means nothing to techies but may cause a customer's credit card to retract back into purse. Update: Stripe seems to be working. It is likely to be a PayPal module issue as you suggested.
  10. @bsmither anything to do with the Inventory Time plugin you sent me? I need to explore all avenues my friend. I disabled the plugin of course, but the issue still remains. Should l just delete it?
  11. Hi there, 2 checkout queries: 1. Until now, my only problem was that l was trying to pay using the PayPal account of the site owner (= myself). So my transaction was declined. I came back today after a long break, and got my sister to do the transaction, but now there's a new error message when l select to "Checkout with PayPal": The following errors were detected: Error: cpp-header-back-color value exceeds maximum allowable length. Transaction refused because of an invalid argument. See additional error messages for details. (Actually, white font on red background). 2. What's the difference between the "Secure Checkout" button and the "Checkout with PayPal" button? It will confuse my customers and make them think PayPal is other than a secure option.
  12. Hi there, l need an inventory dump (e.g. .csv file) that shows the actual URL of each item. There is at least one marketplace that allows you to direct people to your homepage, so l really need this to drive traffic to my CubeCart website. Please, has anybody got a way?
  13. I've seen similar threads but l don't quite understand them. Shouldn't there be a menu in control panel somewhere for customer signups, with 3 radio buttons: * Enforce Registration * Allow Registration and Ghost Accounts * Disallow Registration - Ghost Accounts ONLY (e.g. if bots flood you with signups) I don't see this anywhere in CubeCart. I've seen some arcane threads on here with a lot of jargon that confuses me. I was hoping for a simple GUI approach in control panel?
  14. Hi there, l noticed that page had gone missing some time ago too. You really need to bring that page back. Add a donate button to your site. Add a subscription service - all plugins for one tier, all plugins + tech support for a higher tier etc. The job of a vanilla proof of concept shop should be unobstructed - bring back the import spreadsheet explanation table!
  15. One more idea: the functionality (mentioned in this thread) that l had proposed to be set via the inventory upload spreadsheet (e.g. muting some carriers, soloing some, making some free, making some free and reducing all other available carriers by a percentage too) could *also* be set via a grid of carrier data within the cart itself. Call this "Shipping Profile Mode". To create a new shipping profile, you press the "Create new shipping profile button" (put this new button somewhere in the AIOS module interface). The resulting display would be: >>> For each zone, show the avilable carriers, the cost, the weight, just as CubeCart currently displays them in the All In One Shopping module. As if you have copied and pasted into a spreadsheet the display the AIOS module produces. >>> Display all zones in one page. >>> Do this every time a new shipping profile is set up. So, it's the entire AIOS module's data, all on one page, each time "Create new shipping profile" is clicked. >>> So far, nothing new except that all of the zones are on one page, and the display is definitively a grid now, not just a table. >>> Now, for each row (each row has shipping tariff, and price and weight band, as you recall - that's how the AIOS module displays the data), have further columns represented by radio buttons. Columns include: "Free","Mute", "Solo", "Empathy percent" (if nothing entered, then no empathy setting applied, if "10" input, then all other prices i.e. all other rows, in that grid are reduced by 10%, unless they also have "Free" selected) >>> Do this zone by zone, all on the same page >>> Accidentally closed window? Or navigated away? Saved without naming it? Don't worry, it will auto save as "Un-named Shipping Profile 2020 01 14 time 150343" etc. >>> To invoke this profile, name it in the CubeCart inventory upload spreadsheet. If you rename a profile, a warning comes up to tell you you must change it on any still-current inventory upload spreadsheet that you may have waiting in the eaves, too. >>> Naming a shipping profile in the inventory uploads spreadsheet overrules any other shipping settings for that specific inventory item that have already been set e.g. via module interface based on weight, or even shipping settings already within the upload spreadsheet >>> Finally, rename "spreadsheet" as "spreadhseet" as it is typically how it comes out. Seriously though, just checking you're awake There you have it, best of all worlds: Shipping calculated by weight AND Set by profile Also: Shipping data arranged in two-dimensional grid AND Data arranged serially AND Manual overrides set via inventory upload spreadsheet Sorry if that doesn't make sense. Please re-read or ask for clarification if it's unclear.
