Hello,

The program is very good and I am currently integrating it into our business site. Thank you.
I have the following issues:

1. We are missing a ’ add to cart ‘ button on the product pages.
As it’s difficult when there is 1 version to see the add to cart at the bottom of the page. It also doesn't say the words 'add to cart' despite there been this text in the localisation area. Is there a way to add a 'add to cart' button on the product pages, please?

2. Address is not correctly formatted for UK customers both on the cart form and output invoice. It needs to be
Address line 1
Address line 2
City
County
Postcode (Zip code)
Country
How do I change this to this order?

3. Is there a way to show an itemised breakdown of ordered items on the paypal page? it's currently just a bulk amount.

Thanks for all help in advance,
Speak soon,
David

    Hello,

    So I managed to sort out the ‘Add to Cart’ and a higher up the page button on product pages.

    I am not a PHP person, but found the plugin files and the folders with the PHP layout files that pull into rapidweaver.

    For reference for me and others:
    In product - page.php
    I have moved the versions PHP display further up, into the picture gallery position, this provides customers with the button, higher up the page. I then set the version columns to 1. It now displays the button under the picture on it’s own.
    This would only work if you have 1 version of a product.

    I then went into ‘product’ - versions.php and added the following <?php echo RCUtilities::$localization->product->addToCart; ?>
    to the button area. It doesn’t seem to call this localization option so it seemed best to use it here to make a ‘call to action’ to the customer.
    Now I have a button saying add to basket underneath the picture.

    I will now explore the address form layout for UK. However, I am worried I might upset the backend reporting, but it’s only on a test area for now.

    I will update myself and others, later.

    Thanks and speak soon,
    David

    So point 1 was resolved with the above.

    I am glad I found the plugins php files, it’s taught me some things and I also managed to solve point 2:
    I found the address.php file and I have moved the zip code form field to a new div tag underneath the county. This confirms more to how our customers would write an address and fill it in. I realise not al countries are the same, in the way they write addresses. I hope this helps other UK based stores to find and move this form field.
    I realise the review file will also need editing as this shows the postcode before the city. But I’ll do that tomorrow.

    Only point 3 remains. It would be nice for customers to see the order details on the paypal payment page.

    Thanks and I’ll update if I learn or do anything else as this is a good way to record findings.

    Hi David,
    thank you for contacting us.

    Good job in editing PHP templates!

    Unfortunately there's currently no solution for your question #3.
    PayPal (and other payment methods) are used to handle payment only, no items are passed to those gateways.
    This is not our own choice. It's due to some limitations on payment gateways.
    For example, RapidCart Pro handles a powerful discounts system (that's in practice a negative amount added to cart total). PayPal doesn't accept negative amounts so there should be no way to pass this value to it.

    Kind regards.

    Thanks for your reply.

    But paypal can handle discounts and itemised item lists on checkout. As we currently have this function on the wordpress woocommerce version of our site.
    It might be worth having a look at this again, to see the possibilities available. Looking at other implementations of a solution.

    Will you make this post public so it can be shared with others, I wrote the details to share knowledge?

    Thanks for your feedback.
    We will take a look at PayPal API documentation.

    I've just made this discussion public.

    Kind regards.

    Roberto Tremonti,

    Having now used your plugin with our business. I have some features and
    amends I'd like to implement but we don't have the programming skills and
    resources to do so.

    I would like to hire you to make changes to the plugin which would improve
    it's functionality. Especially for shops that sell 'physical' goods, rather
    than digital goods. The plugin is heavily weighted toward digital delivery
    and this is great for businesses like yours but it does miss a few things
    for businesses that need to physically deliver goods (i.e. invoice printing
    and label printing the delivery address etc)

    Can you provide a price per hour for your time, so I can gauge your costs.
    Please also consider that I would prefer and be happy for the changes to
    form part of an update for all other users of the plugin.
    So in a way, it's beneficial for you to, to both improve the plugin and be
    funded. i.e. half hourly rate paid for by me and the other time is of your
    own.

    On reply with a rate, I can supply a list of items and you can cost them or
    let me know if some are possible or not.

    Thanks and speak soon,
    David Rudge

    Hi David,
    thanks for your offer.

    We usually add new features by popular demand.
    What exactly would you need?

    Separated invoicing system is not in our to-do list. At most some improvements to current orders could be added.

    Label printing seems interesting, but I think that each seller (and country) uses his own layout so a lot of customization settings would be required.

    Kind regards.

    Roberto,

    That is kind and great support. I am sorry I was delayed replying I have
    been away.
    I will start a new fresh private thread. In review; there are tweaks but I
    am very happy.

    There is only 1 major issue for me and I see it's raising hidden issues for
    others and that's paypal integration. It's causing loss of sales and so I
    think I will just post a thread for that to be improved.

    Thanks so much,
    David
