Whitespace Bug In Google Analytics Add-On

18 March 2014 - 08:41 PM

We recently discovered a strange (change/bug) in the CS Cart v4.1.2 core Google Analytics add-on, and was hoping for a little insight as to whether or not this is actually a bug we can fix or an intentional change made in v4.1.2.

In v3.0.4, when the GA add-on makes the call to GA during a transaction, it encodes the URL similar to this:
http://www.google-analytics.com/__utm.gif?utmwv=...&utmipn=The%20Grapes%20Of%20Wrath&utmiva=...

By using the "%20" ASCII whitespace notation, the call to GA results in our product looking like so:

The Grapes Of Wrath

This is what it should do. However, in v4.1.2, the GA call looks something like this:
utmwv=...&utmipn=The+Grapes+Of+Wrath&...

By using the "+" to concatenate the words of the title (product) together, GA now reflects this as a transaction for a completely different product:

The+Grapes+Of+Wrath

Obviously we don't want the product being reported to GA any differently then how it has in the past. Is this a bug, or was this introduced intentionally? If it was intentional, what was the rationale behind it that I may need to take into consideration before hacking it in order for it to report correctly to GA?

Recurring Billing Add-On

03 March 2014 - 07:37 PM

Hello Everyone,

I have setup a "Recurring Billing" add-on for CS-Cart 4.1.2, based on the following tutorial:
http://kb.cs-cart.com/recurring-plan

I am using PayPal Pro as a payment gateway. I have created a special product and added for the recurring subscription plan. If customers purchase this product it sends emails as a recurring product invoice, but it doesn't create a recurring billing profiles on PayPal.

Would you please advise me with 2 questions related with "Recurring Billing" add-on functionality:
1. Does it automatically create a new recurring billing profile on PayPal if a new customer will purchase the recurring-plan related product?
2. Does it automatically connect with PayPal and charge the existing customer on the next recurring payment due date?

Thank you in advance!

How to charge one shipping rate for the full order and not sum up multiple shipping cha...

22 May 2013 - 03:22 PM

I have multiple suppliers setup in my cart with various products assigned. How do I make cs cart charge one shipping rate for the full order and not sum up multiple shipping charges for each supplier? Although I have multiple suppliers they products all ship from a single warehouse and products are shipped together.

I charge flat rate shipping of $6.00 per order no matter how many items are purchased.

This is how I would like the order to calculate:

Book A - Supplier 1 - $5.00
Book B - Supplier 2 - $5.00
Book C - Supplier 3 - $5.00

Subtotal: $15.00

Shipping: $6.00

Total Order Amount: $21.00


But in reality CS Cart does this:


Book A - Supplier 1 - $5.00
Book B - Supplier 2 - $5.00
Book C - Supplier 3 - $5.00

Subtotal: $15.00

Shipping: $18.00 ($6.00 x 3)

Total Order Amount: $33.00

Is there a way to configure the cart to not add a shipping rate per supplier if I'm shipping from one warehouse? This defiantly isn't consumer friendly. I'm running CS Cart version 2.2.2.
