That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

The download controller contribution will give you options to "control" the status etc..

No kidding....

Its a good thing I checked this out b4 I took the store online!.

The reason I want offer mail in payments is so ppl that dont like to use credit cards on the net still has a option to shop with us..

OceanRanch:.

Thanks.. I will check that out..

I am not experianced with this shopping carts or shopping carts that allow downloads..

What do you think about the security of the download option?..

Comment #3

Definitely use the download controller. I have downloads also and a few people have chosen cheque, thinking they will get their download for free, and then never sent a cheque!.

And a few have actually sent a cheque, and then you can change the status to enable the download once you get the cheque...

How secure have you found OS Commerce to be with downloads..?.

Has anyone ripped you off by getting into the download dir?.

And is there a way to change the name of the download dir?.

Thanks for all your help....

CRAP!!!!.

After importing the sql file I get this error on the orders page..

The download manager has disabled the download ability though...

It appeared that everthing was working fine, and I went to look at the order I just placed to test it and it gave me this:.

1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'limit 0, 20' at line 1.

Select o.orders_id, o.customers_name, o.payment_method, o.date_purchased, o.last_modified, o.currency, o.currency_value, s.orders_status_name, ot.text as order_total from orders o left join orders_total ot on (o.orders_id = ot.orders_id), orders_status s where o.orders_status = s.orders_status_id and s.language_id = '1' and s.orders_status_id = '1' and ot.class = 'ot_total' order by limit 0, 20.

[TEP STOP]..

As far as I know the downloads directory is secure; no one has got into it that I know of anyway..

If I try and get into it directly through my browser, it just defaults to the home page, which is what I have set it to do in the case of someone going to a non-existent page..

About changing the name, I'm not sure, I would be very careful about that - I'm not sure where all the references to the downloads folder would be found - they would ALL need to be changed. The downloads don't come form the downloads folder, as far as the customer is concerned anyway, they come from the pub folder..

Your SQL error - try checking out this thread:.

I believe the answer is in there somewhere although I never had that problem..

My question is:.

I have just installed a fresh setup and added my virtual product in the Admin ccontrol panel, setting the download window and # of times to download the file..

Then I did a test purchase thru PayPal. However, I didn't complete the transaction, but I did receive an email regarding the purchase of the material..

I went into the admin panel again and set the order to "delivered"..

Then I logged in to my account, but I don't see a link to be able to access the file for downloading..

How do my customers receive the link to the downloadable file?.

And, if they come back tomorrow, how will they access the link?.

OK - the best way to show you what SHOULD happen is for you to 'buy' one of my free downloadable items..

Ignore the admin fee - it is only for paid orders less than 1..

Here is a list of all my free pieces:.

Once you get to the Checkout success page there will be a download button at the bottom of the page. There is also a download option in the orders history section of the customer's account..

BTW, I couldn't get this to work either until I installed Linda's Downloads Controller, so if you haven't yet, do it! I was tearing my hair out over it but as soon as I installed the contrib - it worked great!.

Ziggylv, how are you getting on with it?..

Lol.

What do you sell? You might get some extra customers today..

Better to just turn that option off for now. Seems kind of odd having mail-in payments for downloads anyway..
