Force customers to choose a payment method

HI

 

I have 3 payment methods - Cheque / Bank Transfer, my merchant credit card gateway and PayPal.

I cannot figure out how to remove the check from the radio button from PayPal, it seems to grab the default.  I am using the PayPal Commerce plugin (not that I have a choice anymore, all the 3 PayPal Plugins go to the same page).  I have not fiddled with any code yet as I don't want to break my shop, but I am thinking it's in /content.checkout.php somewhere?

It seems to me that PayPal are trying to take over and at their rates for a credit card, I would soon go bust!

 

I think if no radio buttons are selected, at least the customer could make the choice and if they forget, then an error message will reminded them?

These modules may have a setting called 'Position". If the Position setting is visible, you can enter a number where '1' is of a higher position in the list as compared to another module that has '5' as the position (for example). The PayPal Commerce module does not expose this setting, but rather it is present in the code.

In PayPal Commerce file /skin/admin/index.tpl, near the bottom, is a series of <input type="hidden"> tags. One <input> has a name="module[position]" with a value of "1". Change this to a value of "99". See if the PayPal choice is now at the bottom of the list and is not pre-selected.

There is also a module's setting to be the 'Default' choice, but I find nothing in the code that manages this setting. Therefore, I am curious about what you say that PayPal Commerce is 'pre-selected' in the radio-button list.

As it happens, the name of the plugin/gateway seems to manage the position - or at least it does with Bank Transfer...  Before I try any changes, here is how PayPal appears on my page - as you see, the radio button is selected.  I took this screen shot using a browser that had never been to my website before, so it's not a browser cache problem .

OK have tried changing PayPal from 1 to 99 and back again.  I can move the other two with Priority boxes - the Description only changed the position because they were both set to 1 😳

I am happy for PayPal to be at the bottom - I just don't want it selected automatcally... must be an 'un' to add to be the beginning of a 'checked' somewhere!

Hmm.

Looking through the PayPal Commerce code again, I find that in the module's file /hooks/class.cubecart.display_gateways.php, there is some code that sets $gateway[99] -- that is not related to 'position' -- to have a 'default' array element of true.

You can change that to read:

// 'default' => true

I thought that was the problem. PayPal acquiring a default parameter which then had CubeCart telling the template that this choice is to show as being pre-selected.

You are saying the radio button for PayPal is still selected?

Allow me to ask, after having made the edit to the PayPal file, are you simply having the browser re-fetch the checkout page?

If so, we recommend that you empty the basket, followed by re-visiting the product page, and re-adding the product back into the cart. Then go to the checkout page.

The default checking went to the Bank Transfer (despite not having the default box checked).  When I disabled the Bank Transfer gateway, both PayPal and Credit Card aquirer had a radio button UNchecked.  Will uninstall the transfer one, clear cache and reinstall it and see if that works.  Thanks for the help!

There is this:

https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/shipping-methods/store-collection

It is a shipping method (sort of).

You can use this in combination with:

https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/payment-gateways/print-order-form
or
https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/payment-gateways/usa-canada-print-order-form

with the module's description being something like "Pay at Pickup".
