In this blog we have written couple of solutions for PayPal errors affecting different versions of Prestashop, we guess we would continue writing this as time goes on. Recently some of our customers complained to us about not being able to make a PayPal payment on our website or recieve PayPal payments on their website. Actually somehow we missed the PayPal email update on the new security instructions for the Prestashop users. I'm sure the new PayPal modules would have updated this security issue but if you encounter problems , it is worth doing the following.
Making sure permissions are right on your modules/Paypal folders
Upgrade your PayPal module to the latest version
Go to modules/PayPal/api/paypal_connect.php , ind the following line
@curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSLVERSION, 3);
Change it to @curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSLVERSION, 4);
Goodluck with your shop.
Recently expanded some of the services we are offering to customers and what that meant is taking on new staffs. As a business employing freelancers and employees that require flexible hours of working from home wherever they live, we wanted web based time tracking system that would allow workers to clock in and out and at the same time calculate their wages per hour / per day etc. There are couple of them here and there online used as stand alone, web based or modules for CRM systems. We wanted a simple system that would be dedicated solely for this purpose and after a good research online. Please welcome to Kimai.
Alright we all know that as an online shop owner, what you want is a way to do a bulk upload of all your products at once and also to be able to do bulk editing . Prestashop has that capability but its handled in a CSV file. In Prestashop we found that many people are having problems doing this due to poor documentation that leaves room for users to practice trial and error on something that should be a straight forward thing. Please do not condemn Prestashop, it is actually one of the best free E-commerce systems and i cant imagine using any other solution than Prestashop.
Now let us walk you through the process of doing a bulk upload of your products, there are not so many tutorials of this problem and even the ones you have skipped the most findamental process.
