Twigmo Payment - How To Setup Paypay Monthly Payment?

21 April 2015 - 03:19 AM

I have been using Twigmo for ... well I suppose since it has been on CS-Cart Add-on. But my old credit card expired, updated with the new card info (account # same ,etc just a new exp date and 3 Digits). Now Bluesnap cannot bill it anymore and tried a different credit card and that card was not going through on Bluesnap.

So in order to possibly same myself future headaches, I do not want to give Twimgo's Bluesnap another valid credit card # on top of the valid 2 they already gave.

Is it possible to re-setup a PayPal monthly payment again? I thought when you first started charging for Twigmo, PayPal was a valid payment option...but then the Bluesnap appeared instead.

I love having the mobile Twigmo add-on and it works very well, but it has been difficult to get my monthly payment to you. :(

Hosting My Own Server At Home? Is It Worth The Trouble?

02 October 2014 - 05:39 PM

Hi there. With my current hosting company, I am currently paying roughly $90 a month for a hybrid VPS, and the hosting company has good support and can update the sever when needed, etc. But this comes out to over $1k per year for hosting. :shock:

With my own home internet server provider, I currently have 75Mbps UP/75Mbps DOWN internet speeds and can upgrade if needed to 150/150 or higher. So for having a sever at home now speed-wise is possible for me... but I know (right now at least) very little on setting up a home web server so I do not know if this would be worth it (to save $1k+ per year).

Is anyone here running their own server at home with CS-Cart running?
And is it a time consuming process to run/maintain a home server?

Thank you very much for your thoughts!


Java Scripts? Does Anyone Know What These Two Scripts Are?

30 June 2014 - 05:00 PM

Hello everyone!
Does anyone know what these two scripts are?

The first a rotating banner type script I found on this website:
Attached File  Rotating_Banner_Script_Example.png   397.82KB   83 downloads

I already have a rotating banner, but I really like the way this rotating banner works and in appearance...instead of small little dots represents the different rotating pictures, this script has a nice listing/summary of the rotate pictures/products.

The second script is new on eBay and might be something custom to eBay only.
Attached File  eBay_Popup_Type_Script.png   154.75KB   81 downloads
This script is like the 'return to top of page' type script which appears as you scroll down through the product listing so you can click an instantly return to the top of the page. This script, the large banner appears when you scroll down some in the page...but what i really like is that is it puts the Add to Cart/Buy it now type button always on the page so the shopper does not have to scroll back to the top to search and click the add to cart button.

Does anyone know what scripts these are?
Thanks!! :)

Getting Order Id # On Order Landing Page?

24 April 2014 - 01:19 PM

On my order landing page (CS-Cart 2.2.5), I am using Shopper Approved Ratings code which just puts a popup on the thank you for your order and just asks to rate their experience shopping. There is now an option with the Shopper Approved code that I can automatically pass some information to the rating such as Order #, Name, and email.

Here is the sample Shopper Approved code:
<script type="text/javascript"> var sa_values = { 'site':xxxx, 'orderid':'ORDER123', 'name':'John Doe', 'email':'john.doe@gmail.com' }; function saLoadScript(src) { var js = window.document.createElement('script'); js.src = src; js.type = 'text/javascript'; document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(js); } var d = new Date(); if (d.getTime() - 172800000 > 1398344779000) saLoadScript('//www.shopperapproved.com/thankyou/rate/2592.js'); else saLoadScript('//direct.shopperapproved.com/thankyou/rate/xxxx.js?d=' + d.getTime()); </script>

On the order landing page, do these variables exist already or would it require extra programming to do something like look at the last order just successfully placed and pull that information from the database?

Thank you for any input! :)
