Is there a module for Epoch or just CC Bill?

Hello All,

 

I'm working on a project installing osc for a client who uses CC Bill to handle their website subscriptions.

 

CC Bill sent me this link to a module needed to 'talk' between CC Bill and the osc on the customer's site:

http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/6141

 

I looked through the Community Add-Ons section in the Payment Module section and scrolled through all 39 pages and didn't see the module listed in the link above.

 

What I'd like to know is, is there such a module for working with Epoch as a biller? I have yet another client who could benefit from osc, but they use Epoch and it would be cool if there was a way to use osc with them.

 

Many thanks in advance!

 

Sincerely,

 

DesertCoder

That add-on says it was written for osC 2.2. If you're trying to install it on 2.3.x, I wouldn't be surprised if it refers to modules that have been changed, and takes some recoding to work with the newer version. Is the author still around and supporting it? If not, if you succeed in fixing it for 2.3.x, you can probably contribute the 2.3 version to the add-on.

Phil,

 

Very good to know, thank you for the info. Any clues for what I should look for with incompatibilities? I'll give it a whirl, but if I have problems, I'll download the earlier version of osc.

 

This is the problem with the current billers, they offer support that is not up to date such as what you are describing. If I can figure out how to make it work, I will definitely post it here. As I said though, if you can highlight any thoughts on what may fail that would help.

 

 

NOW...

 

Any news on a module that works with Epoch?

 

Many thanks!

 

Cheers,

Well... my best guess is that you're going to have to examine those file(s) line by line, see where they refer to something that no longer exists or has been changed in some way, and try to figure out the correction. Of course, as this involves real money from real customers, it would be understandable if you don't want to take the responsibility. You might start with CC Bill, and ask them if they know of any updated version of that module. If they're the original author (or hired someone to do it for them), perhaps they will get it upgraded to 2.3.x compatibility.

 

If you have one or two other payment gateway modules that work with 2.3.x, you might compare the code side-by-side and look for differences. You might get lucky and be able to modify the 2.2 module for 2.3.x, without poking around blindly, or be able to modify one of the 2.3.x modules to work with CC Bill. Of course, you need to be comfortable working with PHP. I'd start by poking CC Bill -- maybe they're unaware that it doesn't work with 2.3.x and would be happy to update it.

Phil,

 

Thank you for the breakdown that actually does help a lot. I've been coding PHP for almost 4 years though pure PHP files such as the module are a bit of a challenge still. That being said, I'm not afraid of a challenge so I'll use your suggestions and proceed. Many thanks!

 

Sincerely,

I wanted to update this post to share some pleasant news: The module for CCBill DOES WORK with osc V2.3!!! I tested it today with CCBill's help and there was absolutely NO PROBLEM and I did NOT have to modify the file!

 

Whew...just wanted to share that, I hope it help ssomeone else.

 

Cheers,
