Usa Epay Database issues


Recommended Posts

So I downloaded the Usa Epay module and everything works great with a few exceptions.


When modifying the Payment Module in the Admin for USAePay, no matter what Card Types you selected, the change would never be saved. AFter much noodling around, I think I have a fix. Let me precusor this fix by saying I am a total novice when it comes to PHP and MySQL. I come from the land of vbscript, so please excuse the messy code. Basically the Array of credit cards wasn't being split up before pushed into the database. So I added this block of code around line 43 of modules.php. My added code starts with ***BOB CODE***


if (tep_not_null($action)) {
   switch ($action) {
     case 'save':
       while (list($key, $value) = each($HTTP_POST_VARS['configuration'])) {
//****BOB CODE 4/15/04****** For multiple values, break array into comma delimited values for DB
   if (count($value) > 1) {
      $count = count($value); 	 
      for ($i=0; $i<$count-1; $i++) {	
        $finalvalue .= $value[$i] . ',';

//trim off final comma
$finalvalue = substr($finalvalue,0,-1);
//set database value to be the comma delimited list for storage
$value = $finalvalue;
//****BOB CODE******


Also I had to make a slight change in general.php on line 787

Used to be this

$key_values = explode( " ,", $key_value);


Now is this

$key_values = explode( ",", $key_value);

Just deleted the space before the comma.


Hope that helps anyone out there having a similar problem.

Now I just have to figure out why I'm being pushed back to the loggin screen after I complete the transaction and I'll be all set!

As a follow up to my last post, I've found that a Form Post to USA ePay is generating the following return.















Based on the form below.

Example is taken directly from http://www.usaepay.com/topics/api.html#over

(using a different UMkey)


<form action="https://www.usaepay.com/gate.php" method="POST">

<input type="hidden" name="UMkey" value="h328dtwj834jhs98d">

<input type="hidden" name="UMredir"


<input type="hidden" name="UMticket" value="101">

<input type="hidden" name="UMamount" value="1.00">

First Name: <input type="text" name="fname"><br>

Last Name: <input type="text" name="lname"><br>

Street: <input type="text" name="UMstreet"><br>

City: <input type="text" name="city"><br>

State: <input type="text" name="state"><br>

Zip: <input type="text" name="UMzip"><br>


Credit Card Info:<br>

Card Type: <select name=cardtype>




Card Number: <input type=text name=UMcard><br>

Expiration: <input type=text name=UMexpir><br>

Name On Card: <input type=text name=UMname><br>


<input type=submit value="Place Order">





I've tried adding and leaving out different fields but to no avail. I've written USA Epay but haven't heard back yet. Will keep everyone up-to-date as to my findings.

Ok. I think I figured out why the page was being redirected to the login page after "Confirm order" was hit. When the form is posted to https://www.usaepay.com/gate.php and then comes back to your store, it loses the session ID. Therefore, upon returning to your store after the post, a new session ID is created because it thinks you are a new person coming to the store. A simple fix(but probably not a very secure one) is to attach the session ID onto the url going to usaepay.com. The following code is added to usaepay.php starting on line 16.


  class usaepay {
//***BOB CODE Added 4/24/04.  Added $formurl variable*******
   var $code, $title, $description, $enabled, $formurl;

// class constructor
   function usaepay() {
//**Added $SID variable to pull global session ID
     global $order, $SID;
     $this->code = 'usaepay';
     $this->sort_order = MODULE_PAYMENT_USAEPAY_SORT_ORDER;
     $this->enabled = ((MODULE_PAYMENT_USAEPAY_STATUS == 'True') ? true : false);

       $this->order_status = MODULE_PAYMENT_USAEPAY_ORDER_STATUS_ID;

     if (is_object($order)) $this->update_status();

//Added $SID to URL to retain Session ID when navigating away from store
$formurl = "https://www.usaepay.com/gate.php?$SID";

     $this->form_action_url = $formurl;
//****End BOB Code*****


Hope that helps you out there. Specifically for Wayne who sent me an email a few weeks back. Cheers.
