Does QCart interface with third party processors such as iBill.com?
Not at this time. We plan to add such functionality in the future.
Does QCart support Switch Cards?
Yes, as of Version 3.7 it does. In QCart's Settings, in the "Credit Cards Accepted" field, enter "Switch" with an uppercase S. Doing so will direct QCart to add and require an Issue number field and a Valid From Date field.
You must also set "Include security fields" to "Yes" if the additional switch fields are to be required by the built in client side validation. What this means is the fields will be checked for a value before the form is submitted.
Is there a convention I should use when entering payment methods accepted?
Yes, for QCart to recognize the credit card types and methods of payment accepted and then act upon them accordingly, you should use the following case when entering the types in the Settings area. Use the exact same case and characters if you accept any of the following. Prefixing or appending spaces is allowed.
Regular Mail (check)
Other Credit Cards are treated as generic and do not require special formatting. For example, you could enter "Visa" or "visaCard"
Can shipping be calculated depending on number of products ordered?
No, the shipping values are static and displayed as you entered them. If you require this feature, contact us for a quote on custom programming.
I'm having trouble exporting data files.
If you're receiving a File Not Found error, you to open up the qcart_cfg.cgi file and look for the following variable on line 43.
$FileURL = "https://www.yourserver.com/psjs_datalogs/qcart$FolderPass/data";
This variable should point to the data folders created by the Set Up script. Enter your domain name, and leave the rest as is shown above (unless you've set up the data folders in a custom location). Upload the file to your server and try the export again.
How do I delete products?
On the products page, remove either the name or the price and submit the form. Any products without a name will be removed. Any products without a price will be removed.
If you have a large number of products, you can increase the number of products listed, per page, on the Products page, in the admin section. To increase the number from the default display of 10 per page, click on Settings and scroll down to Products Per Page.
How do I have only payment fields, with no products, displayed?
Link to a non existent Department. E.g. Your form's action could point to "qcart.cgi?Department=None"
I have lost the ability to edit quantities on the checkout page of my shopping cart.
If your quantity fields are being displayed as static text rather than form fields, go to your Admin Settings and scroll down to "Swtich of Shipping Calculator" and switch it back on. Save your settings and refresh the Shopping Cart checkout.
I'd like to ask for the customer's particulars on my custom form, but I don't want them filling in the same details again on the actual order form.
No problem, in your custom forms, use the same field names that are used on QCart's order form. E.g. when requesting a first and last name, use "firstname" and "lastname" as the form field names. By using the same field names that appear in QCart's order form, the values will be pre populated in the order form when your custom form is submitted.
Can I make the shipping options required?
You can set one of your shipping options as the default option, meaning it's checked when the checkout page is loaded. In your Shopping Cart's settings, scroll down to Shipping options and enter each option on one line, using the word "checked" to specify the default option. Separate the price, description and the default option with equals signs. E.g.
$12.00 = Overnight Express Post = checked
$6.00 = Regular Post
