The e-commerce.



Recommended Posts

There are numerous people having the same problem as myself with the PAYPAL IPN contribution not sending the shipping costs to PayPal. I have seen this same problem reported by over a dozen people in the last month or so with no resolution. This seems to be the biggest single problem with the contribution other than help with installing it. Overall, the contribution works very well.


Since this contribution was made by the oscommerce team and supposedly supported by them, I would hope that they would at least answer some of us regarding our problems with it. How about it folks?


Here is how my shipping module is setup:


Table Rate


Enable Table Method



Shipping Table



Table Method



Handling Fee



Tax Class



Shipping Zone



Sort Order



Here is my PayPal IPN setup:


PayPal IPN


Enable PayPal IPN Module



E-Mail Address

[email protected]


Transaction Currency

Only USD


Payment Zone



Set Preparing Order Status

Preparing [PayPal IPN]


Set PayPal Acknowledged Order Status



Gateway Server



Transaction Type



Page Style



Debug E-Mail Address

[email protected]


Sort order of display.



Enable Encrypted Web Payments



I have my PayPal Shipping Calculations page set up for flat rate shipping and I have the transaction-based shipping override box checked.


Everything else with oscommerce and the PayPal IPN work correctly.


I have noticed that once in a while, the shopping cart AND teh PayPal shipping amount are both charged to the customer. This has occurred twice for one customer bot has only happened about once in every 20 or so orders.
