The e-commerce.

using osc_PayPal_v177 on oscommerce 2.3


Recommended Posts

I'm currently using version 1.2 of paypal module. I'm having the following problems;


1. when clicking [buy now] the shipping charges are left off the invoice. (paypal express)

2. when going through checkout, the credit cards are not being processed because of an invalid account type.


I figure the problem with 2 - is probably my paypal account, and I'm working with them on this - as they helped me set up everything so it would work -- this is new, so I'm hoping they help resolve this for me.


The first issue, is the most critical to me.


So, looking around, I found this on paypal's site, osc_PayPal_v177 for oscommerce 2.2 - released 2009.


My concern is, osCommerce 2.3 has a version included, which is older (if you go by version number) -- is it really older? Do I need to replace it?


If I do need to replace it, I noticed there are 3 new files in their list of files, and the instructions do not claim them as new, but as modifications.


I am feeling rather confident that my fix may NOT include updating this - does anyone have any input that can help?


I would also gladly accept suggestions on either issue, as this is all new to me.


Thank you in advance

I don't see an edit - and need to update this.


I found an area on the paypal 1.2 field that asks 'paypal optional' and set to true -- now, the credit cards are an option, without a paypal account


I am only using the paypal express module. Now, I think to solve my other problem, I simply need to force everyone to go through checkout, and remove the [paypal] button from the shopping cart.


anyone know how to do this?


Thank you in advance!

ok... again, no edit - so sorry about the multiple follow up.


problem solved....


1. -- removed express button from shopping_cart.php by commenting out lines 140 - 154

****fyi this will remove ALL optional buttons displayed on your shopping cart, however, all payment methods still remain on checkout.

2. -- as mentioned before, changing the option already available in the paypal module provided with 2.3, the credit / debit cards are now available.


Hopefully, this helps someone avoid the same problems I had. Thank you again, osCommerce!
