  1. Thanks guys. Is there any workaround l can implement as a mere end user? I was hoping for something l could tweak directly, as Al Brookbanks suggested. However l don't know how to do that specific tweak, and it looks like a database tweak, which creeps me out. Do you have a foolproof step by step guide to do it?
  2. Hi there, I'm trying to set up courier rates but keep having all my input undone when l save it and end up with the following alert: "Security Alert: Possible Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF). Please do not use multiple tabs/windows or the browser back button. Learn more." Even when l have just one tab open. Even when l log out, log back in. Even when l restart computer. It's preventing me from inputting courier rates via the All-in-One Shipping extension (which l otherwise love btw).
  3. Hi there, does anybody have a bare bones template refund policy for digitally delivered goods sold by a UK seller?
  4. Ahhh sorry l just realised l can add countries Countries/Zones ---> Add Country ---> [your suggestion: https://www.genuki.org.uk/big/Regions/Codes ] It made me chuckle that highlanders would still opt for mainland, worth a try l guess. Thankfully it doesn't usually matter (anyone remember Initial CityLink? As l recall, they made a proper mess of outlying regions, too complicated, it may have been their downfall).
  5. Hi there, l feel it'd be nice to show upfront what you can do with CubeCart yourself as a novice, and what the novice would need a hosted account to achieve. Otherwise it would create abrupt situations and make people think certain things just aren't doable, or make them give up in panic and try elsewhere. Just showing a nice development roadmap upfront would help people plan their growth (most people wouldn't mind that the developers would like you to get a hosted bespoke cart or a tech support package, it's understandable). Speaking for myself at least. Edit: of course there is this page: https://hosted.cubecart.com/ ... but it'd be good to know examples of what "Minor coding tweaks & changes" you could arrange under a fully hosted package. E.g. if it turns out that something isn't do-able in a forum thread, could you do it via a hosted package?
  6. Hi there, l feel we need to have the following UK / UK-ish regions to put into our own bespoke postal zones: 1. Mainland UK 2. Isle of Man, Scottish Isles, Scottish Highlands (all together in one grouping, but you can have them as separates if you want?) 3. Northern Ireland 4. Channel Islands (to preserve sanity l'm refusing to Wiki the exact political status of this area and the Isle of Man too for that matter) The costs can vary quite wildly depending on the courier service. I'm unsure how UK-centric CubeCart is, and doubtless every nation on earth has its regional variations in courier costs. But this is the regional variation for the UK anyway.
  7. Personally, l think a developer could get rich if you create the following tools for sellers of mass-produced low price stock: 1. Import postal zones 2. Import categories 3. Export orders: I would want customer name, address, and also product name, SKU, and the product packaged weight, as per the corresponding column in the CubeCart upload spreadsheet. That vital info would allow me to organise the Export Orders csv into weight categories, and then divert each weight category to a courier l know to be doing the best deal at the moment, for that weight category. The savings would be huge, if this is scaled up to thousands of orders per week. 4. Discount tool offering: "Buy [Quantity] Get Cheapest [1,2,3,4 etc.] in a Category or Entire Inventory, FREE!" 5. Postage and Packaging discounts for additional units of an item, e.g. 1 widget = £5 + £2.50 P&P, buy 5 widgets = formula that gives £2.50 + £0.50 per additional widget = £2.50 + (4*£0.50)
  8. Nice clean storefront. However l would avoid using ALL CAPS for some products e.g. DOUBLE LAYERED NYLON/ CHAIN LEAD and HELLCAT MAXX FDE EDITION etc.
  9. I'm curious, would the payment gateway(s) a shopping site uses, be able to output a CSV? Then you could take that CSV to your RM business account, and from there l guess the customs forms would be a doddle, especially if you can have the HS codes as part of the CSV (added manually). Just speculating - l've only done the electronic customs form manually ...
  10. 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.
  11. 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)?
  12. 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?
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. Hi there. How did the demo you showed me manage to acquire a pulldown menu?
