  • Saul, I believe the way it works is the cart contents are tracked using a session id cookie which expires when the user closes his or her browser. What your client probably wants to know is is it possible for a customer to put some items in his cart…
  • Luke. I have indeed told my webmaster friends how foxy you guys are. And everyone whose had a look luvs the cart. Lots of comments on the cool load transition, the clean look, and the live shipping feature. Keep up the good work. :-)
  • Or if you find hotlinkers, you can always change the image on your site -- and replaced the hotlinked image with something very embarrassing to the hotlinker, or at least beneficial to you. I like the way you think, tookings. ;-) I guess what …
  • IMHO, if you're not already doing this (using complex pws) you're failing your customers. I've got passwords all over the place and, honestly, half of them I forget what they are and have to look them up each time. But there are nice freeware progr…
  • Why would you even need to use a cart for this? Wouldn't it make more sense to make the free docs available from a downloads page that requires a user account login to access? Do that and you'll be able to accomplish everything you want: collect cus…

  • A poll for feature requests...brilliant! It's so simple an idea I feel like an idiot for never having thought of it. I'm going to implement something like this at my work ASAP. We get feature requests all the time but don't use any method to gauge…

  • Brett, if supporting both free and fee transactions is not a problem for you guyz at Foxycart then I guess it's a non-issue. But on the surface at least it seems problematic ultimately. A shopping cart is an e-commerce device and free downloads ar…

  • I reported this a few weeks back (see steps to reproduce below). For short term, until a fix is available, disable your SmartAuth settings in CyberSource. SmartAuth 520s isn't the only trigger for this scenario, but it's a likely suspect if you use …
  • Luke, no, no js errors. And yes, I'm running 0.3.2. I can reproduce this situation every time. I can't really think of anything else to add to help you track it down but here's a link to a screen shot showing the shipping method deselected and th…
  • Luke by "single user customer method" do you mean the that we don't require users to create an account and login? If so, yes, that's indeed the case.
  • Sweet. See, this is why I luv you guyz. I shudder to think that it was almost by accident that I came across FC as a hosted cart solution. FC all the way, baybee. :-)
  • Yup. We hit the issue too with a few customers. I upgraded to 4.0 and haven't had a problem since. (Upgrade from 3.2 to 4.0 went very smooth, BTW. I really like the model you guys are using for upgrade--letting it be customer-controlled even tho …
  • Well, FWIW, I figured out what the issue is and it is on the Foxycart side. The customer was entering a pound (#) sign in his address to indicate his apartment number. This was causing the shipping calculator to lock up. For all I know, this may be …
  • Hey Luke. Interesting...so the order ID is really the number of orders submitted through all FoxyCart stores. Prolly long term (assuming FC continues to grow, as do the vendors that use it :-) ) that won't scale so well as it will cause big jumps …
  • This reminds me of a novel that my brother in law (an early software engineer compared to us noobs) turned me onto. It's called "The Bug." Wonderful read. Stealing from Amazon's description: Ethan Levin, programmer at a database start-up in the m…
  • Hey John. As another Foxycart user (tho using CyberSource as the PG) just curious. Can I assume from the fact that Authorize.net is capturing sales in a single transaction that you're selling either downloads or subscriptions?
  • "Also-- I didn't realize that I could just edit that text myself! Sweet, thanks!" BTW, the way that the fields that display language text you've customized are shaded, very nice and functionally useful touch. I love that kind of attention to deta…
  • Got it Luke, thanks. Sorry I missed the sticky (stickies tend to focus on general truisms rather than late breaking news so my eyes often gloss over them). Guess I'll mash up a fixed rate workaround until USPS gets their stuff together. Please do ke…
  • After some reported issues last night I've received orders today without a hitch. Only one person reported an issue and they eventually got it. One of the customers reporting a problem yesterday hit the bug whereby a pound sign (#) in an address fie…
  • "Anyway, I'm guessing that best communication solution for handling any future issues is to make sure we change the "shipping rate error" language setting to something that says "Shipping Error [etc] please [call] or [email] or [etc] ..." or even so…
  • I'm getting this too and customers have reported it. It started I think sometime 5-10 days ago. Seems to affect Firefox only (not happening in the IE or Opera versions I tested). I'm still trying to narrow it down. But in a nutshell when you add an …
  • My link: http://www.jackgartside.com It happens in chrome as well, but again not in the versions of ie and opera i tested against. Nothing on my forms that should be causing this. In fact those forms haven't changed in a long time (I've been u…
  • Holy crap, nice detective work Brett. :-o And I know exactly how it happened...the cart container uses a background image (defined in the server-side css) that I didn't want to display. So to override it I defined the style locally in my cart tem…
  • Setting the background url to "none" did the trick. Thanks again!
  • Hmm, doesn't work for me. Or rather, it works to the extent that the radio button for the sole shipping method (in this case USPS Priority via Live Rates) is selected automatically. But the shipping cost is not actually applied to the order, I'm gu…
  • This continues to be an issue for me...reported twice this week. As the OP wrote, try as I might I cannot reproduce it. Nor do I get anything in the error log. Bigget concern is that most customers don't report the issue...they simply abandon the sa…
  • OK. Added a click event to Luke's script and all's good.
  • Hi Luke. Unfortunately not. But I'll post again if/when I have any info.
  • Thx guys. Yes, not being able to reproduce really has me stuck. Will whisper you store and customer info later this evening.
  • This is great. Thanks guys. Yes, those new rate names were definitely setting some unrealistic expectations.
