  • OK. I've now got the following which I've put in the head for the checkout template and is doing more or less what I want it to do. I only have one small problem - the shipping is only set to the right value when the country is updated. When I first…
  • Thanks Lance. This is what I've now got but it's still not got the right values initially. Is there something specific I should be setting the shipping and category values to in the control panel? Gordon http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-s…
  • The HTML outside the tag is for an additional field as per this information in the wiki - http://wiki.foxycart.com/v/0.7.0/checkout - but let me know if I've misunderstood this? I've whispered the site location to you (it's still in development …
  • Thanks Luke, but that still doesn't seem to be doing the trick. Any other ideas? (Site's supposed to be doing live at the end of the week so I need to find a solution as soon as possible.) cheers, Gordon
  • Thanks Adam. I've done this and the alert appears when the page first appears, indicating that the function is being fired. Intriguingly (and I have no idea if this is significant or not), if I then change the destination on the form (from United Ki…
  • Thanks Adam. The first one of your suggestions did the trick. Many thanks for your time on this. Gordon
  • Thanks guys. Turned out to be trivial to fix but I really appreciate you letting me know.

  • Hi Adam - Thanks. No, I'm afraid he doesn't have another card. If the worst comes to the worst, I could use my card and then charge it onto him but only as a short-term measure. cheers, Gordon
  • Hi Luke - Thanks. He has been in touch with his bank who have told him that there are no issues with his card. He also tells me he's made other on-line purchases recently with it without any problems. [edit - Meant to add, my first thought was th…
  • Thanks for your help guys but you can now put this one down as 'solved'. Despite assuring my client that there were no issues with the card, it would seem that the bank had put a 'picked up' status on the card after all. Sorry for bothering you …
  • Apols for digging up an old thread but I was looking for the info discussed here and keen to know if this page still exists somewhere - http://www.foxycart.com/multiple-domains-one-foxycart-account.html
  • Thanks Adam. There wasn't anything specific I was after, just wanted to see if the page included any info I wasn't aware of - which it doesn't so that's fine! cheers, Gordon
  • Thanks Adam
  • Thanks Adam. The second part (using media queries) was roughly what I was planning to use there. I'll probably need to do a bit more digging to understand a bit more about how to do the first part but it sounds very much along the lines I was hoping…
  • @fc_adam This basically looks fine and I understand in principle what needs to happen but I'm not sure how to go about overwriting the existing process function. I *think* the process function is this one - fcc.events.cart.process.add(function(…
  • @fc_adam Thanks for that Adam. Just what I was after.
  • @fc_adam Hi Adam - I've used that piece of code and it works fine. However, I also noticed that because I'm not using pages that are shared between different devices but using pages that are specific to smartphones, I could just miss out includin…
  • @fc_adam As ever, thanks for the advice. I've now stripped the script out because it is two separate code-bases. I take your point about whether adding the item again is a glitch. I know that in a technical sense it's doing exactly what it sho…
  • Yeah, I'm not sure what the right solution - whether it's possible to do some form of redirection after the item has been added to the cart so that the url for adding the item is never a displayed page in the browser history or something similar. …
  • Brett - Thanks. I'll look into those ideas and see if there's something we can do there. cheers, Gordon
  • OK. I've tried testing it a bit more and it seems that when you select a country from the drop-down list it works fine but if you type the whole of the company name then it doesn't. Since it happens in both Safari and Chrome I'm guessing that someth…
  • Sorry Adam. Bit of finger trouble there. I meant country field and yes, exactly, it's when I type out the whole country name and then tap onto the next field (or tap the 'next' button) without interacting with the autosuggested results that it doesn…
  • @brett - Just getting back to this. How would I go about doing A/B testing with the checkout page? regards, Gordon
  • Great. Thanks Adam.
  • @brett - So, a year down the line and my client is still concerned about the drop-out rate. One idea that they've come up with is inserting an extra step between the shopping cart and the checkout where we just ask and collect the customer's email a…
  • @fc_adam Thanks, I'll have a look at that.
  • @fc_adam Thanks Adam
  • @fc_adam I've now had a good look at rejoiner, tried it with foxycart and also spoken to Mike at rejoiner. The downside is that, as I understand it, because there isn't a full integration between rejoiner and foxycart, although we can capture ema…
  • @fc_adam Thanks for the info Adam. Just so you know, we're not going to go ahead with Rejoiner, partly because of the lack of integration with Foxycart and partly because we seemed to be getting quite a few "false positives' from it ie people who…
