i love foxy cart but i just dont really have time to learn apis.
ok so now that we got that out of the way i have a question. if i was to take this script
http://wiki.foxycart.com/integration/subscription_datafeed
and put it on my site. Then put all the database stuff. would this just be the talk back when someone completes an order cancels there subscription or doesn't pay?

and if so how can i grab certain fields that they filled in and also upload it to my DB

    Hey itisnot_me. Would it help if we recommended some developers for you?

    As for the subscription datafeed that is used to let you know which transactions have cancelled, which subscriptions have an expiration date and which payment cards are about to expire.

    For normal every day orders, the XML Datafeed is what you want as far as saving your order data to a db. More info on that here:
    http://wiki.foxycart.com/docs/datafeed
    and here:
    http://wiki.foxycart.com/docs/subscription_datafeed
  • it never hurts to recommend some people. the only problem with bring in others is that i really dont have monies.

    so i was going over the datafeed link and i understood it but i just dont know how i would go about grabbing all that data and then pushing it to the DB. i really dont work with xml so i have no idea what i am doing. i work with php.

    does the subscription datafeed push xml data too. and also is the subscription datafeed and the other datafeed go to the same url.

    i love making things my self but do you know of anything that is a prepackaged set up for foxycart subscriptions. and doesn't cost alot and i can still use all of what i made already

    If there's no money for the project, I'll hold off on the recommendations as they may not appreciate the lead. :)

    The integration code provided is mostly in PHP and yes, it's all done in XML. Everyone has to start somewhere and working with XML is a great skill to have as it lets you integrate with just about anything. The example code should be enough to get you started and show you how to parse and work with XML.

    And yes, the datafeed and the subscription datafeed go to the same URL. Just look for $_POST["FoxySubscriptionData"] or $_POST["FoxyData"] with an isset() in your script.

    Good luck and feel free to ask us an specific questions you have.
  • would it be possible if you could whisper me some people so that i may get an estimate from them and try to raise some money for it. thanks
