Bundle requested: Software download + eBook

Do you have a question you want to ask an existing QCAD user about QCAD and what you can do with it? Do you want to know if a particular feature exists? This is the place to ask.

Bundle requested: Software download + eBook

Postby asteinarson@gmail.com » Thu Aug 06, 2009 7:03 am

In the shop I notice that the bundle is for Software download + Printed book.

I wonder if a bundle with the eBook (PDF) is possible.

Thanks,
Arne Steinarson

Problems with latin1 characters at PayPal

Postby asteinarson@gmail.com » Thu Aug 06, 2009 8:47 am

Thanks, I tried to purchase the bundle but got stuck un PayPal VISA payment.

First I entered my address with swedish (Latin1) characters. PayPal will then not accept the payment, but I cannot change the address either. Not sure if this URL is available for you: https://www.paypal.com/se/cgi-bin/websc ... 9e563d3d93

So I went back in the shopping cart to change my address (with only ASCII this time) and redo the payment from scratch.

Unfortunately PayPal has cached the old address and will not use the new one. And it does not accept it.

Better wait for my session to die or use a different PC to order :-(.

This has most likely nothing to do with your address. PayPal has been having some serious outages this week. We can only hope that later it will work again.

Likely address problem

Postby asteinarson@gmail.com » Thu Aug 06, 2009 8:30 pm

Hmmm... I suspect the address line was the issue. Address line 1 hade messed up UTF8 chars in it (gibberish) and when I clicked "Proceed" it complained that "Address line 1" was invalid. But the "Change" button was mysteriously gone...

I've been developing som e-commerce scripts and I know that many payment gateways have problems in this area, one usually have to set the encoding flag as a hidden form input value, ...otherwise problems.

But then it should be repeatable by inserting some non-ascii charcters in an address line, such as our swedish ones: Å, Ä, Ö. And running a test payment with that.

Anyway, tomorrow I'll get started with the QCad software.
