Paypal Express Checkout

21 March 2010 - 04:52 PM

I'm wondering if anybody else is having problems with PayPal Express checkout.
I've added to our payment methods with the usr name, password and certification from paypal.
The problem I'm having is that when redirected to paypal's express checkout I cannot see the details of the order. I tried paying to see if it will appear on the invoice. No luck. The receipt on the customer's shows only the price paid but no details of the order.
I contacted paypal's technical support and they suggested the following:

You will need to pass the item details like so as part of the API calls (Where n is a number starting at 0 and incrementing for each product):


I created a ticket on the help desk area of cs-cart and the response I received was:

Please let me explain. According to Paypal Express rules it should not be transferred to the Paypal website.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,
Maria Zuzanova
Technical support engineer

This, of course, is contrary to what PayPal Express customization guide says:

Under "Configuring and Customizing the Express Checkout Experience" it says:

You should include

*Order details, including shipping and tax, during checkout

Not displaying this information is a major cause of shopping cart abandonment during checkout.

I've also created a bug tracker entry (http://forum.cs-cart...ew&vbug_id=1815)

I believe this is a major problem that needs to be addressed on cs-cart PayPal Express code. If anyone has found a solution, please let me know. I'm still waiting for Technical support reply to my latest reply.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

How to add/update products from external apps

I'm wondering if anyone here has created a little app to add/update products to CS-Cart from an external application, through odbc connection or webservices.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.



RMS Integration

Has anyone here done some integration with Microsoft RMS and CS-Cart? I know some companies use x-cart and do that integration. I think CS-Cart is much better and therefore wandering if anyone has done this kind of develpment.



Yes-Pay Integration

09 October 2009 - 12:56 PM

Hi, I'm new in CS-Cart and have a fair knowledge of html and php (trying to learn a bit more of smarty). I'm wondering if any of you cs-cart experts have done the integration for Yes-Pay payment gateway with CS-Cart.

I read the knowledge base but I got lost because it is not a comprehensive help on how to do it. :-?

Any help or guidance will be much appreciated!

Kind regards,
