It's too late for me, yeah I didn't even look at your sig, that's what you get for using a phone to view the forums, it cuts of the bottom of the post, well that's my excuse and in sticking with it :joker:

Yeah I seen your free non inline template good work, the commercial templates look good too. I will be jumping into templates soon, I'm more a programmer but can whip up a good looking website, I have been too busy with clients sites to get my own sales site finished but will go at it tomorrow.

Maybe we should redesign the extension store to look like the chrome web store:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore

We could use OpenCart and make modules for each section "Payment", "Shipping", "Themes" etc. "Ads" could be promoted as well

Yes it will be good, and don't forget to build the docs too.
I think after releasing 1.5.0, it's the right time to evaluate opencart.com ;D

A few suggestions for hen the "Extensions" section of the OpenCart website is redesigned....

1) Add new a tab or or maybe a new section that documents a change log for a selected module.

Currently anyone can download a module, and there is a date last modified shown (which is good), but to my knowledge no one knows what changes were made to the module.

Ex.
Date Modified 12/18/2010
- added ability to sort by model
- added price to report
- added ability to make a lot of money

2) One a module has been updated by a developer, the customers who have bought the module are emailed letting the customers know that the module has been modified (updated).

Since files over 2MB are not permitted, please can you allow RAR archives so that I can split the extension into several parts?

Definitely; it struck me as odd that Opencart wasn't used in the first place.

UPDATE!

Due to the recent increase of fraudulent paypal account use to purchase extensions on the store, Daniel has added an additional email verification step to purchase extensions.

After a purchase is made through paypal, you are returned to a page that directs you to check your paypal email account for a verification email with activation link.

Once you click that link, you are returned to OpenCart with a successful verification page and directed from there to your download.

If you do not verify your purchase, the Download will not work. Currently it shows "Page not found" but will soon show a reminder page and resend activation link.

ash_in99 wrote:Fraudalent transactions you means buyer using anyone else paypal account to buy the product or there is any flaw in the paypal module?
No flaw in the module.. it means people from indonesia or wherever are scamming paypal accounts and paying with them.. then when the real owner gets an email receipt, they report it to paypal and paypal reverses the payment, meanwhile the extension has already been downloaded by the culprit and the developer of the extension gets screwed.

This is just how paypal works so we have to take additional steps to protect the developer by making purchasers confirm the order email first.

Btw, are you planning to implement this 2 verification procedure for v1.4.9.3 as patch because i think all users which taking a payment from paypal get's affected with such transactions?
I have been looking into it for opencart, as I have been hit a few times and even with all the enhancements for security I've been adding to the module, there is nothing to protect a seller from actual buyer account hijacking except for this, which puts hope in the fact that the users paypal password is not the same as the email password.

so far this has cut fraud to 0%. some days I was getting about 20 fraudulent orders a day.

We just did take action, unfortunately it happened before this new validation process was in place. If he's from indonesia there is nothing to report to the police as the gov't either doesn't care or doesn't have the resources to stop it.

Well the one for the extension site is much different from the one that would need to be created for the store.. I haven't even started on it yet, but when I finish it I put it up for download

Seems to be using a proxy server.

Look at the site:

http://www.ugshop.us

Selling credit card details. ridiculous to rip off the extension section. Its not like the extensions are going to be popular and can be resold.

There are lots of "off shore" hosting companies, which make their money from selling web space to people with no restrictions - usually in third world countries with few security checks etc

It's not connected to Opencart, it is just one of the many spammers here.
