PayPal Stopped working


Guest

Recommended Posts

I have been running OS Commerce for about 6 months now with very little problems. All of the suddent PayPal stopped working.

 

Here is my problem. You can select an item and walk all the way through the checkout process including selecting the paypal option. When you click the confirmation button it takes you to paypal as usual. You can then proced and use your paypal account to make the purchase. That is what i dont understand. I get an email saying that the payment has been recieved. But when i go into the admin module I don't have any record of the order.

 

I also tried making a purchase using the standard check/mone order and that works fine and registers in my orders table. It is just paypal that i am having the problems with.

 

Can anyone help?

 

By the way, i have a lot of modifications on my site so the first thing i did was download the latest release of OSC and upload it to my site. From their I drop all the tables in my catalog database and re-ran the install of OSC. After doing this I am still having the problem with paypal

I don't know about mr. wizard being a bad ass but you were correct about searching. I actually found the mod for it 5 minutes after i posted. I belive there were some props to you for contributing to it, so thanks for your help.

 

As for the freedom fighter here is the link on GPL: http://www.opensource.org/licenses/gpl-license.html to sum it up, the code is open source and according to the license i am free to use and sell it free of charge if i wish. If I lay claim to my modified code, i am allowed to and will do so use the words "Powered By".

 

If anyone else has similar problems as I described above with PayPal, you will need to use the PayPal IPN module in the downloads section. It is still in beta form but the people developing it seem to be doing a good job. Really this was the answer I was looking for Nov. 19. 8)

The correct link is: http://www.fsf.org/licenses/gpl.html

 

to sum it up, the code is open source
The code is Free Software
and according to the license i am free to use and sell it free of charge if i wish. If I lay claim to my modified code, i am allowed to and will do so use the words "Powered By".

 

You should learn a bit more about Free Software, Open Source, respect and copyright before saying something like that.

 

Please explain where in the GPL you find a rule stating you are allowed to change the copyright at your desire? Hint: There is no such rule.

 

Ofcourse you can claim copyright for sources you have written yourself. But your shop is a derivative work based on osCommerce. That's something different.

 

As we have explained numerous times we have no problems with people removing the "powered by" slogan on the catalog side. But claiming that you have written the eCommerce software of your site completely by yourself is different.

 

It is more like:

 

"Hell, I have renamed Apache to Jan's WebserverSoftware, Mozilla to Jan's BrowserSuite, OpenOffice to Jan's Productivity Suite and Frontpage to Jan's WebDevSuite - but M$ didn't like the last action and yeahz, I understand. Frontpage is not OpenSource"

 

I guess your car is a genuine "DikkoInc Turbo" that only looks like a Ford Proton ;-)

Apparently, the developers have stated that anyone can remove the "powered by", and put whatever they wish.

 

However, it is not very curteous to a group that has been EXTREMLY gracious.

So was I the one in the wrong by saying "Check your powered by?"

 

Our policy on the displayed copyright notice on the catalog frontend deals with the layout of the site only. The copyright notice can only change if the layout of the site changes and can be distinguished from the osCommerce copyrighted layout provided by default in the release package.

 

Any related "powered by osCommerce" text is optional to display - this shows us your love for the project :blush:

 

Because the GNU General Public License allows forks to occur, that "powered by" text can be replaced with "powered by MyOwnShop". What can't change however is the osCommerce copyright notices in the source code.

 

We have a different copyright policy for the Administration Tool - the GNU General Public License allows us to force the display of the osCommerce copyright notice if the copyright announcement conforms to section 2c - even if the layout has been changed. This copyright announcement is not to steal credit for whatever layout changes has been made, but to control the distribution of osCommerce.

 

A Frequently Asked Questions entry has been made about this issue and can be read here:
