Free Addon To Fix The Recent Http/2 Bug

17 November 2018 - 12:15 AM

All services that use Google API's now respond with HTTP/2 headers (Paypal, Recaptcha, etc.).  They will fail in cs-cart (though responses to your browser will succeed - I.e. Javascript).  For instance Recaptcha will return a green checkmark, but then you'll get a message that the code is invalid when you try to proceed.

 

 

Since cs-cart is not willing to generate an addon to patch this issue on their product, I built an addon that will address the problem and apply the patch.  It will patch any site that has app/Tygh/Http.php where the HTTP/2 header fix is not applied.

 

You can download the addon at: https://ez-ms.com/pr...p2_fix_v1.0.zip


After Upgrade To 4.9.1 Google Recaptcha Fails

15 November 2018 - 04:48 PM

Reported that my site was returning an error of "Error Incorrect or missing confirmation code.".

I have re-copied the keys related to the site from Google to the Addon and have cleared the cache.

 

However, the error continues.  I've had to disable Google Recaptcha.

 

Anyone else experiencing this?  Or does anyone have a solution.

 

When clicking the Recaptcha checkbox, it comes back with a green checkmark so it would appear that Google thinks things are okay.


New Features In Ez Vendor Plans Plus

12 November 2018 - 09:46 PM

We've added new functionality to our EZ Vendor Plans Plus addon that extends the standard Vendor Plans addon.  In addition to category commissions, service fees and vendor bonuses, we've added a new extension called "Allocations".  If you need greater flexibility in commissioning in MVE, then we've got the addon for you.
 
Allocations allow you to decide what services/fees within an order are commissionable and what commission (absolute value or percentage) should apply.  You can currently specify the following allocations:
 
+ Shipping charge (after removing any shipping_freight fee)
+ Shipping freight
+ Payment surcharge
+ Taxes
 
For each of the above you can either assign those funds to be ADDED to the merchant commission or leave them allocated to the vendor and optionally specify a commission.
 
For instance.  Let's say you have a plan that is setup to use 25% commission in the plan.  You want to take $5 from all shipping costs and give it to the merchant with the remainder being left to the Vendor.  You can simply set the allocation to Vendor and specify '5' as the commission.  If you want to commission shipping charges at 10%, then specify '10%' as the commission instead of '5'.
 
If you want Taxes to be allocated to the Vendor with no commission, you'd set the Taxes allocation to Vendor and leave the commission field empty (implying 100% to vendor).
 
If you want to allocate Shipping freight to the Merchant and have it ADDED to their commission, you'd  set the allocation to Merchant.
 
Default settings emulate standard vendor plan behavior.  I.e.:
Shipping charge - vendor @ plan_commission_rate
Shipping freight - vendor @ plan_commission_rate
Payment surcharge - merchant
Taxes - vendor @ plan commission_rate
 
A screen shot showing the new parts of the Extensions tab is below.

As with all our products, we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Addon: Ez Tax Reporting

06 November 2018 - 12:40 AM

Just in time for that most happy time of year!

 

We now provide tax reporting for cs-cart.

 

View tax collections by order, jurisdiction, date range, etc.

 

Columns shown are:

- Order ID

- Order Date

- Tax Jurisdication

- Taxable amount

- Tax Rate

- Tax Collected

 

And for MVE, 2 additional columns are provided:

- Seller Of Record (default Vendor)

- Notification (default Merchant)

When used with our upcoming TaxJar Integration, SOR and Notification will be set appropriately based on which TaxJar account was updated with the tax transaction.

 

A tax summary is also shown for total tax collected and tax collected by jurisdiction.

 

All reports can be exported to CSV so you can keep quarterly and annual listings of all tax collected.

 

Product detail page is at https://ez-ms.com/ez...-reporting.html

Once approved in marketplace: https://marketplace....x-reporting.htm

 

Tax info is recorded in a separate table.  You can export order tax information by tax year so you can generate reports on those years.  New order tax data is updated immediately.

 

Be sure to keep an eye out for our EZ TaxJar Integration coming in the next few weeks.
