#300365 Instagram Shopping?

Posted by screenimages on 18 April 2018 - 07:47 PM

Any thought regarding Instagram's new Shopping feature?


It appears they've only opened the door to Shopify and BigCommerce so far.


And insights into future compatibility with CS-cart?

#296868 Multi-Vendor Roadmap

Posted by screenimages on 28 February 2018 - 08:46 PM

Thanks for the update to the forums organization - I appreciate the new focus on MVE.


That said, I wish there was some emphasis on attracting new vendors in your plans.


The backend of the shop is becoming painfully dated compared to many other popular multivendor environments and makes supporting and encouraging engagement with the shop difficult. Most complain that it is far too time consuming to add new products, understand shipping, etc.


I would be happy to outline some ideas for improvements based on our three years of running our MVE.

#288432 Adaptive Payment "verified" Status

Posted by screenimages on 12 November 2017 - 04:06 PM

Paypal is as guilty as any payment system of making things less than obvious. The number of broken links and blind alleys on their site is proof that they're in a bit of disarray, or at the very least still in transition from the bad old days. Combine that with two different languages and configuration permutations and it gets pretty confusing.

#288389 Adaptive Payment "verified" Status

Posted by screenimages on 11 November 2017 - 07:02 AM

We have finally figured out what is going on with these issues with verification. (see this thread for background)


Everyone has assumed this is some sort of issue with bad vendor credentials (this is how all of CS-Cart support members have replied to it in the forum so far.)


The truth is that verified and unverified, are two legitimate Paypal account holder statuses. Both parties can receive fiunds in an adaptive payment. 


Vendors can have correct email, first and last names, and will still not get verified status. They are not related.


Verified account holders have confirmed with Paypal that a bank account is attached to their Paypal account. They have no limits as to the value of funds they can receive in a transaction payment.


Unverified account holders do not have a bank account attached to their Paypal accounts, but still may receive payments up to a limit (usually about $2000USD).


CS-Cart adding the verification call to the Adaptive Payments add-on has been a real problem for us. We spent the first week thinking that our problem was that we were missing the Get Verification call from our Paypal APP-ID. Once we got it added and nothing changed we realized there was something missing in the translation. None of these issues showed in testing as you can only use the Paypal sandbox accounts with test payment credentials - and everyone was verified. After some back and forth with Paypal tech support this week, we finally figured this out.


We have over 1,000 active vendor accounts and hundreds of them have chosen not to add verification to their Paypal accounts. We've spent a month redeveloping our Adaptive Payment transaction with Simtech replacing a much simpler (i.e.: no get verified status) custom development we used with MVE 4.03.


We're now madly trying to remove this logic so we can get the unverified vendor's products back up for sale. We've spent so much time being confused that we've almost missed our relaunch date. The store has to go live Sunday, and I'm hoping that Simtech can get things figured out on a Saturday.


Losing some serious sleep over here…
