#318181 Meet Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.3 With Billing Address, Apple Pay, Googl...

Posted by kingsleypress on 26 July 2019 - 11:20 AM

I usually only use help desk as a last resort. I saw someone on here saying that they had a ticket in for three days and it was still unanswered, so that could be frustrating. They are probably overloaded because of all the problems with these latest updates.


The old checkout is fine for now. After a while, hopefully all the bugs will be worked out and I can switch to it at that time.

#317145 Meet Cs-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.10.1 With New Checkout And Product Variations

Posted by kingsleypress on 27 June 2019 - 11:46 AM

I didn't mean to derail the thread. I merely chipped in to agree with tbirnseth's great points.


I have not upgraded to the latest version yet. I never do, because I'm using a third party theme and I have to wait for those developers to update their theme, which is usually several days to a week after CS-Cart releases an update. This gives me time to watch the forums for any problems that get reported. This has worked well for me.


I wasn't trying to bash the developers -- just agreeing with Tony that the latest changes in the checkout were a fail, and CS-Cart needs to rectify the situation and take steps to make sure something similar doesn't happen again.


This is my last post in this thread. I hope everyone has a great day.

A lot of people are complaining about this here:




I have not upgraded yet because of it.

#297692 Google Sitemap Addon Gets Hung On Processing Features

Posted by kingsleypress on 11 March 2018 - 07:28 PM

Found it. It's the Blog add-on by Cart Power.

#297691 Google Sitemap Addon Gets Hung On Processing Features

Posted by kingsleypress on 11 March 2018 - 07:21 PM

So I opened a support ticket for this with CS Cart helpdesk. They responded very quickly, which surprised me since this is the weekend. They said there one of my third party addons must be conflicting with the sitemap add-on because when they disabled all third party addons, it executed as expected and created the sitemap.


So I guess I need to go through the third party addons one by one and see which one is causing the problem.

#293354 Php 7.0 Or 7.1 Or 7.2?

So basically just go with the highest...

#293352 Php 7.0 Or 7.1 Or 7.2?

Posted by kingsleypress on 17 January 2018 - 12:12 AM

I am running the latest version of CS-Cart Pro.


Having just switched web hosts, I now have the ability to run my site on PHP 7 (my former host wouldn't allow me to have some sites on PHP 7 at the same time as others that were still on 5).


So, does it matter whether I choose 7.0, or 7.1 or 7.2? All of those are options in my PHP manger.



#275173 Vivashop - Your Ultimate Responsive Cs-Cart Theme

Posted by kingsleypress on 12 April 2017 - 02:03 PM

@CutRiteFX: Based on past observation, the main times they offer discounts is Black Friday and New Years. 


Their product is excellent value for money without a discount, though, so just go for it!  :grin:

#267797 Switching Http To Https Full Site

Posted by kingsleypress on 07 January 2017 - 02:56 PM

I switched my site from http to https last summer. At that point I had 944 pages indexed in Google. Today I have 35 pages indexed in Google.


What did I do wrong?

#254186 Update From 4.3.7 To 4.3.8

Posted by kingsleypress on 04 July 2016 - 08:31 PM

I just ran the upgrade script today and it took only a few minutes, probably less than 5.


(Note that I did turn off the compress backup feature as I don't need that and it takes unnecessarily long on my server.)

The VivaShop documentation is some of the best I've come across in the ecommerce world.

#233643 Request Review To Customers

Posted by kingsleypress on 28 October 2015 - 12:26 PM

I use EZ Auto-Mailer from EZ Merchant Solutions:




I have it set to send out a review request 14 days after the order has been marked completed. I sells books, DVDs, etc., so hopefully this gives them enough time to evaluate the product and write an informed review.

#226046 1-Year Licenses Discontinued

Posted by kingsleypress on 07 August 2015 - 08:18 PM

I have times when I get frustrated with it and start researching alternatives. I've done that two or three times since I first adopted CS-Cart back in 2009. But each time research the alternatives, I always come back thinking CS-Cart is not so bad after all. :-)

#226024 1-Year Licenses Discontinued

Posted by kingsleypress on 07 August 2015 - 03:30 PM

A lot of people run small sites and are happy for a very small income to go towards their full salery from elsewhere.

Yes, I totally get that. I also work a full time job and operate my online store in my spare time. But at those profit levels I can assure you I'd be looking at spending my time on something else.

Also, the $385 isn't a yearly thing. It's a one-time expense. The updates are $110/year if you want to keep current.

#225614 1-Year Licenses Discontinued

Posted by kingsleypress on 04 August 2015 - 06:03 PM

On the lifetime license, if you pay for upgrades within a certain amount of time you pay $110. After that time you pay $165 I believe.
