I was able to register for an account and get in. There seemed to be a lot of good info, but I didn’t want to post it all here in the forum.
I did find dev subdomain that may give some insight as to how it all works, although it doesn’t seem as detailed as the info inside the site.

Yes, I was surprised to learn that as well, and, judging forum topics I found by searching the web, I’m not the first person to run into that limitation.
I do not yet have an account with the taxcloud guys. I’ll check with my manager to see if I can get one set up.
In the mean time, I noticed that their registration form as a menu for selecting shopping carts and one of the options is “Paypay Express” – On the taxcloud partner page, they say it’s for people who “would like to use a simple payment button instead of a full-blown e-commerce shopping cart”. Is PayPal Express Checkout used for checkout in WP eStore, or is PayPay Payments Standard used? I’m a bit confused on that point.
The paypal developer site talks about integrating paypal express with “https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/express-checkout/integration-guide/ECGettingStarted/#id084RM05055Z”
The Table Rate Tax addon could work. My state does supply the tax rate tables for download in a few formats, so theoretically one could import the list into the database. Unfortunately,I’m looking at the lists and I don’t know how we’d implement it. One excel spreadsheet has the town names (although some with T.B.D. after them in the cell, so that could throw things off) but doesn’t list the zip code. Another one lists zipcode and the +4 extension, but doesn’t list the town name. It breaks it down by street address, so we’d have to base the tax rate on that.
100,198,E,10TH AVE N,WA,98001,6522,Q32015,1701,Y,King PTBA,
Most people don’t know their +4 zipcode extension.
Plus, we’d just have to remember to update the list quarterly. I think connecting to TaxCloud (or a similar service) is the best option. If WP sStore uses PayPal Express, then we may already be all set.March 31, 2015 at 9:52 pm in reply to: WP eStore – Using the Fancy Product Displays #69372
I think you want the Extra eStore Shortcodes Addon.

Adding content disposition>attachment in s3 seems to work. Thank you very much.July 9, 2014 at 3:38 pm in reply to: International characters not writing to customer_tbl #63955
Thank you for the help. It’s all sorted now.June 30, 2014 at 4:15 pm in reply to: International characters not writing to customer_tbl #63953
I disabled all the other plugins I had installed, and I still had the problem.
I then did a ‘live’ test and names were entered into the database correctly. Apparently the problem was with sandbox.paypal.com.
After reactivating the plugins and doing more tests I was able to confirm that the problem only surfaced when using the sandbox account.
However, I’m not out of the woods yet, because the [wp_eStore_transaction_result:end] short code works with sandbox mode, but not with live transactions, but that’s a topic for a different thread.June 27, 2014 at 3:45 pm in reply to: International characters not writing to customer_tbl #63951
I did another test today (using paypal sandbox) using the name “billNuñez” and I still get the unknown character ( for example: “SAP Training Module 01 (billNu�ez) “) on the post transaction page and the Notification of Product Sale email. It’s recorded in the product_name in the customer table as “SAP Training Module 01 (billNu”
The email for this one came out normal, but it’s been edited since I saw the problem. The email I mentioned for the test product with the horribly unreasonably named “téstPrødüctñîøß å” had the extra characters:

Brilliant. Thanks!May 22, 2014 at 5:03 pm in reply to: WP eStore – "Collect Customer Input" remove spaces/limit/validate input value #63136
Sorry to be dense, but I’m still a newb with this stuff.
What I have now (excerpt from eStore_read_form.js – ReadForm1 function:
if (val.length != 0)
val = val.replace(“(“,”[“);
val = val.replace(“)”,”]”);
val_combo = val_combo + ” (” + val + “)”;
// added else statement to make form mandatory —
alert(“Please enter a username for your employee.”);
// —- end edit
Now, I assume I’d need to put the snippet you suggested at the top of the if statement… (IF something is entered then Replace the spaces made by customers and then put it inside parentheses).
Won’t “Some Input From Customer” need to be a variable? What is the variable name I need to use? Would it be val?
