Can we use custom add to cart plugin in WordPress website?
Need a ticket management system for a speaking tour

I need an easy to configure ticket sales service with some basic features:

- At first I will give tickets for free
- I want to switch to charging money per ticket, with the flip of a switch
- I'd like eventually offer the first X tickets for free, then charge a fee after that the free tickets have been taken

I need to support multiple speaking dates with multiple locations

I have no merchant credit card service and need a service which combines payment processing.

I need to accept many payment methods and not require a person to have a PayPal account in order to use a Visa card.

What are some choices?

I do have a WordPress site with a WooCommerce plug-in. But I suspect I would get up and running faster if a choose a full-service website for this.

Magento 2.1 - How can I remove the ability for a user to UNSELECT a swatch image?

I have all configurable products, I have created default simple product configurations for all configurable products. In the configurable product I have a double swatch configuration and if the user accidentally clicks twice on a swatch image, that option becomes UNSELECTED. I need to remove the ability for the user to UNSELECT any swatch, the configurable product must always have a swatch selected. The user can choose different configurations, and move about, but should never be allowed to select nothing.

I have configured default configurations on all configurable products and I want the swatches to behave like radio buttons in that the user always has 1 of each selected. We have a total of 2 possible swatches. FRAME color and LENS color; one of each must always be selected.

I use
prestashop 1.6 or/and 1.7  classic default theme.

Is there a way allowing to have these functions :

- On the product page, the buyer can choose to add, or not, one or more paid options to his product, by checking boxes. These paid options are independents products or accessories existing or not already in the online shop. In any cases, the price of that option should be freely set by the shop owner.
Ex: for a product with 3 option boxes, the buyer could choose  => product (base price) + option 1 (x€) + option 3 (xx €).

Unfortunately, the attributions and combinations feature doesn't allow this for now. Maybe is there a way to adapt the attribute functions.This function is very suitable for gift wrapping and also for promotions, etc.
When paid options are selected by the customer, the price of the option is automatically added to the price of the product.

thanks for reading
Hi.  I created a website using basic client payment logic from authorize.net over 10 years ago (2007?).  

It has been working fine all this time..thankfully....until Authorize.Net disabled TLS 1.0/1.1 on 2/28/18.  Now authorize.net is not receiving any payments from the website.  I called authorize.net and confirmed they have seen nothing from this website since TLS 1.0/1.1 was disabled.  They cannot offer any specific help and I am trying to figure out the issue but am not sure where to start.  

My client received a notice way in advance about this and sent it to me but I dropped the ball and didn't check into it in advance (I know that was a huge mistake).  We are working around the issue for now by billing clients via re-billing directly on authorize.net.  Fortunately, it is a small business and we can do the work-around for now.

I haven't done this type of work since I created this website long ago, and we did it the simple way using Authorize.net SIM, I think.  It is so basic!  I just pass 2 codes and all the pertinent data and it always worked.  

We have a SQL Server backend SQL Server 2012 Express/Windows Server 2012, and the frontend is old ASP classic.  My client has a vendor maintain the server and it is in the cloud.  The server is kept up-to-date and has the latest security patches.  I don't do anything server related and, over the last 5 to 8 years, I have made very few changes to my software and no changes to the code we send to authorize.net.  Most …
I'm using the version v4.0.30319 of the .Net API and am running into an issue.  We are setting PrimaryCategory but this is being ignored/overwritten when calling AddItem.  

For example, we listed item 401500920741 (production) and set it to go to category 183721 "Vehicle Parts & Accessories>Car Manuals & Literature>Service & Repair Manuals"  but instead it went to "Computers/Tablets & Networking>Manuals & Resources".  

How can we force AddItem to use the category we set?

We are creating a product page and this product has 2 configurable types, I will call them LONG and SHORT. We have implemented a double swatch extension that does a very good job of allowing using to configure a product with various options.

We are trying to figure out if we can have the image swatch sizes for LONG set to 100 x 20 and the swatch image sizes for SHORT be set to 20 x 20.

Is this possible in Magento 2 to have 2 swatches, but different sizes. I only see a single place to change swatch image size in the file: vendor/magento/module-swatches/etc/view.xml

Hi, my client is selling high-end storage devices, and would like a shopping cart to do this: Customer adds item to cart and goes to checkout, enters contact info, and then gets a statement like: Due to the nature of this transaction, we do not collect payment information at the time of the order. A representative will contact you within one business day to collect your payment information and discuss installation details.

An email is sent to my client, and they take it from there.

Are there any wordpress plugins that can do something like this? We're using woocommerce, but can change shopping carts if necessary. Thanks.

Wireless from my desktop pc to an Apple iPhone is other parts of the building. That is what we need.
A couple years ago we bought a simple Netgear (I think that was the brand) router. It plugged into the back of the cable modem with a yellow ethernet cable. There was then internet access to all rooms to laptops via wireless. The cost of that device was around $45.

Today we went to the same store and shown models and none were under $75 and none looked like what we had a mere two years ago. They ended up selling us an adapter that plugs into the iPhone and the other end plugs into a 25 foot ethernet cable from the cable modem. This cable is too short.

Is there no longer a simple low cost wireless router? The salesman acted like they had never heard of the type hookup we had before and / or it would never work now.

Interesting article. I think cryptocurrency and especially bitcoin is our future. I use Cubits wallet. In addition to this, Cubits has flexible merchants that accept Bitcoins and work with other financial providers like credit card companies, OK Pay and Rapid Transfer.

Amazon license plate help with integration.

We have an EDI system here that we have integrated with. Amazon sent an email to say that we need to integrate with Amazon License plate.

We though this was just the ASN for doing the shipments. We have contacted amazon but the keep sending us the amazon license plate document which is a manual process. The issue is we are a large company and we want to be able to automate. Has anyone had experience with this and is it possible to use web servicesthat Amazon supply? We have fount it difficult getting any information from amazon regarding this. We have requested calls but no luck.

Looking for someone that has been through this before?

Considering a Replacement MacBook

I may purchase a used MacBook Pro that I will use for Sales activities, and maybe some development.

I want the display to be goof for presentations and like the 1T disk of this machine:


I need to port over data from my 500GB MacBook SSD, so how exactly do I do that? I back up my disk to four different external hard disks, so I presume I need to just restore from a current backup to the new machine. Is that the best way?

I also need to run Windows, which I do with Parallels, and sometimes may do some Windows development with Visual Studio. I presume this hardware cold do this reasonably?

Aside form this, are there any reasons you can suggest me getting a better machine? Can I upgrade the RAM to 16GB, for example?

Currently, I survive with a 13" MacBook from Mid-2012 and 8GB RAM, but it seems slow and often pops up the multi-colored wagon wheel icon as the processor can not keep up wth the request.

Magento is the best technology for eCommerce start-ups as it offers the technical expertise and visual appeal to create a store that pulls sales and earns high ROI (Return on investment).

Being open source, free with additional features like SEO advantage and 3 different flavors makes it more flexible. Many eCommerce web development companies to adopt it because of its multi store feature , scalability feature (php), secure and mobile friendliness .
I have seen an answer similar to this and I have tried it. But didnt work for me. This is the code that I added to the funtion.php file and I had to delete it because it was wrong.

if ( ! function_exists( ‘etheme_single_quantity_text’ ) ) {
function etheme_single_quantity_text() {
global $product;
if ( !$product->is_type( ‘grouped’ ) ) printf( ‘<span class=”qty-span”>’ esc_html_( ‘people’, ”xtore’ ) );

Im sorry for not understanding your previous answer to this.
I hope you can give me some light in this.

Hello Experts!

I am trying to get a bundled product in the shopping cart to add the " Additional Accessories " to total what the additional shipping cost is.

For example - One Product: Light Booth: <-- shipping price: 250.00
Additional bundled item:
Accessory: Table Stand. <----shipping price: 100.00

The shopping cart only will show 250.00 with this product in the cart.

So the extension is called the Product Matrix from WebShopApps.com

Thank you all !
