will this work with an RC2?

will this work with an RC2?

It has not been tested on RC2, but it should work, as the files that are updated by the GC mod all have the same mods in, and the difference between RC2 and RC3 is mainly bugfixes.

A minor bugfix has been added to this mod, and there is a new download package that has been incremented in version to:

osCMax v1.4 beta1.1

The issue was with orders.php in the admin panel throwing an undefined function error. This was due to upcoming changes in RC4 that needed to be backported to RC3 for full compatibility in one package.

If you downloaded beta 1, get the new download. The only two files changed are:


To manually update html_output.php, see step 8a-i in the INSTALLATION.txt file included in the package.

Change Log:

08/06/2007 - osCMax v1.4 beta1.1 (michael_s)

- Added file /catalog/admin/includes/functions/html_output.php
This was added for full compatibility of the module with both
RC3 and RC4 versions of osCMax and resolves an undefined function
error in orders.php in RC3.

- Updated version number displayed in the admin panel to reflect that
this is an osCMax version of the mod: osCMax 1.4beta1.1

Does it include real time Fedex rates ?

08-07-2007, 06:54 PM
Yes, it has everything that the standard osCommerce Google checkout1.4 mod has including real time rates.

I have a question when it comes to the final checkout process and i can choose google checkout or create an account. If choose create an account it still proceeds to check me out and says that it only offers one payment option google. But i see no order confirmation or anything relating to google if i complete the transaction that way. What is it that im missing here?.

That is not correct behavior. You should never see google checkout as an option in the standard oscmax checkout process.

What other payment modules do you have enabled? Provide as much detail as you can, and I will see if I can reproduce the issue.

08-13-2007, 05:01 PM
OK . I have no other paymnet methods except for google installed. But as you come to checkout, you are still offerd the osc grey checkout button above the google checkout button which is really confusing.

Here is a thread discussing this:
Os Commerce checkout not disabled if google checkout is only payment method - Google Checkout Mod for OSC Community Support Forum | Google Groups (http://groups.google.com/group/google-checkout-for-osc-mod-support/browse_thread/thread/c4221657cbf19d88/#)

An updated package has been released that fixes a few bugs, most notably adding compatibility with individual shipping in osCMax.

To upgrade your module:

1. Disable the googlecheckout module in the osCMax admin panel. Be sure to copy down all the info for easy reference, as it will have to be added again.

2. Upload the new googlecheckout files. If you are updating an existing install, see the changelog for the files you need to upload.

3. Re-install the module in the osCMax admin panel


added this to the $mc_shipping_methods array

'indvship' => array(
'domestic_types' =>
'indvship' => 'Individual Shipping'

'international_types' =>
'indvship' => 'Individual Shipping intl'

added this to the $mc_shipping_methods_names array

'indvship' => 'Indvship',

and in the includes/modules/payment/googlecheckout.php file line 52 change

$this->shipping_support = array("flat", "item", "itemint", "table");
$this->shipping_support = array("flat", "item", "itemint", "table", "indvship");

I installed the Google Checkout Module and everything was going swimmingly. I received my first order however the order is visible under customer orders but there is no record of the transaction through Google. I contacted them with the customers email etc and they said there was no record of the order and suggested that "It might be that the buyer did not complete the order process by confirming his order." (I remember there was an issue with PayPal doing this as well).

Any Suggestions?

Is it a setting issue? A Stupid CUstomer Issue? Or did I just botch up the installation? LOL

Thanks, Heathyre

Anyone know how to get osCMax coupons to work with Google Checkout? Currently, you don't input a coupon until you get to the checkout page, but by then the user is no longer allowed to select Google Checkout as an option.

From what I've read the ideal behavior is that the user selects Google Checkout and then inputs the coupon code at Google, which then can figure out the discount through the Merchant Calculations API. Any idea on how to get this to work?

Thanks for the great contribution. I faced a shipping issue: when I checked out the order, Google checkout did not automatically collect and calculate the freight from the carrier (FedEX), turning out all the shipping rates are 0.

I am using osCMax v1.4beta1.2 and all the default shipping rates were set to 0 (default). In Google checkout account, I set up all the FedEX delivery methods by choose carrier-calculated rate.

Has anyone experienced the same issue like me? Please advise on how to fix this.

Yeah, I did and ended up stopping the usage of Google Checkout - switching to Paypal IPN at the moment. Google Checkout would be great but the contribution definitely isn't working properly.
