Thank you very much for looking into that. How do I access the updated plugin, please?July 18, 2014 at 3:20 am in reply to: Photo Seller – is it possible to provide photo comps? #64441
A ‘comp’ is a low resolution, watermarked image for mocking-up layouts.
If you go to a photo library such as iStock, you will see that there is an option to ‘Download a Comp’ underneath the image. Example:
I regularly buy stock photos on behalf of my clients when working on graphic design or website content projects. In the case of graphic design work, I typically make a couple of different designs with different images for the client to choose from. I use a comp for this initial layout, and I would only purchase the photo once the client has made their final choice and given their approval.
All graphic designers I’ve met use a similar work flow – otherwise we’d be buying a whole load of images that never get used.
Does that make sense?
Seeing as using comps is important in my own client design work, it’s a facility I’d really like to give my photo library clients.
Many thanks for your follow up email, and just to confirm that it’s now working properly.
In case it helps others, the advice you gave me below fixed the issue:
It is likely that you have specified some fields to be required in this list which is causing the issue.
Edit this MailChimp List and make sure you have NO REQUIRED fields. The plugin will automatically send the name and the email address to the list (don’t make anything required).July 15, 2014 at 12:42 am in reply to: Photo Seller – Using same photo for multiple galleries #64349
Yippee! That works a treat, thank you.July 14, 2014 at 3:27 am in reply to: Photo Seller – Feature Request: Redirect to Receipt page after payment #64287
Oh, I didn’t know that… thanks for letting me know. I guess I don’t use PayPal enough myself to have noticed that!
Thank you very much for your help, I really appreciate it.
Thank you very much for the update… unfortunately it’s still not working.
I’ve emailed you a reply with some screenshots from my MailChimp account, in case that helps.July 13, 2014 at 9:16 pm in reply to: Photo Seller – Feature Request: Redirect to Receipt page after payment #64285
I’ve double checked, and Auto Return is definitely ‘on’, and Payment Data Transfer is ‘on’.
The Return URL is set for a different domain though (my main e-commerce website, where I use your other plugins, i.e. eStore, eMember.) Could that be the problem? Sadly PayPal only allow one return URL.
In my tests, I’m making the payments from my credit card – it doesn’t allow me to pay from the same account that the payment is going to (and I have just the one PayPal account).
Thanks… here are my list settings:
Email address: Always required, always visible
First name: Always required, always visible
Last name: Always required, always visible
SIGNUPDATE (a custom field): Not required, not visible
Thanks so much for your quick reply.
The debug option is enabled, and I’ve done another test transaction. URL is: [http://picturesbycornelia.com]July 12, 2014 at 12:36 am in reply to: Photo Seller – Feature Request: Redirect to Receipt page after payment #64283
Thank you very much for your quick and helpful reply, it’s appreciated.
No, I haven’t heard of PDT before… I found this info: https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/products/payment-data-transfer/
… and have checked my PayPal account. PDT is enabled in my account.
Is there anything I need to do on my website or within the plugin to enter the Identity Token? (The link above suggests I write a script, but I don’t know how to write scripts!)
Note: I get taken to the Thank You page after I click the “Return to FX Marketing Limited” link in PayPal, but it doesn’t happen automatically.
