oh  that is disappointing,  most devs with the MarketPlace are responsive to issues.

But a bit curious,  if it didn't work in 1.2.16 and there a lot of changes in 1.3.0,  interesting that you didn't think to turn it off to see if it was still an issue.  But hindsight  is always "smarter" than when one is in the battle. 

Cheers nuno,
least you know to not use it currently.

I wonder if you followed my recommendation for updating a cart version?

It is ALWAYS best to check all third party extensions for versions that state they work on the cart version you are updating to.,8997.msg35647.html#msg35647

is your cPanel enabled for you to change your php versions using  multiphp manager?   If so ,  then using MultiPHP ini editor , basic mode tab
compare the settings in the 7.0  that is working for you and the 7+ that is not.  Depending on your host the php ini for each version can differ.  You may be able to set your php ini configs within your cPanel or you may need to make the request for your host to do so.

In our many installations we find php 7.3 and 7.4  work correctly if the php ini is set correct.   And our testing shows php 8.0  is working well if 1.3.0 cart version.

Regarding the wordpress here is the link to the manual info:

A word of caution to AbanteCart users  that have extensions purchased from the MarketPlace:

PRIOR to updating your cart version to the latest 1.3.0,   check your extensions and be sure there is a version that supports the 1.3.0.

Even though the beta 1.3.0  was announced a couple of weeks ago,  it usually takes MarketPlace devs a few days to test the FINAL release with this extensions to ensure all is working together. 

Once you determine all your MarketPlace extensions have a version noted to support the newest 1.3.0,  then schedule your updating for one session -  Cart first,  then each of the MP extensions. 

Don't forget to test on a non-live site for any issues.  For those of you who have Softaculous in your cPanel (or the equivalent)  there are cloning and staging that will assist.   For more details on Softaculous you can refer to our WHY2 AbanteCart Information Hub FAQs

The 1.3.0  has some good updates and fixes in it.  Enjoy,  but update properly.

please share a screen shot,  as it is unclear  where you are making a series of products , etc.

I have fixed the second link in the previous post.  apologies.

As to the attributes used for different versions or different presentations. eg.  if you offer a document  in word and PDF,  you could add the two DIFFERENT attributes for the customer to select which one.   Or perhaps you have a version 1 and a version 2 of something.   Attributes are for a choice of different types of downloads of the same  product.

from the manual:

Hint:  the manual link is in the top header of the forum,.   the search function is pretty robust.  May get you answers quicker sometimes.  if the info is adequate for your question.

I hear your viewpoint,  but let's redo your math a bit.  Overall averages of the extensions in the marketplace is about $30.  some more,  some less,  but let's talk averages.   So  12 months of updates and support would be $10 for that $30 avg extensions.   That is less than $1/mo.   Even if we multiply by your 15 extensions  that's $15/mo.   So give up a couple of StarBucks coffees for the month?  Bet you tip your uber driver about that for delivery (most folks do.

And extensions are optional for your cart.  AbanteCart core  is pretty robust right from the start. But Admins who are code challenged and want or need something special for their store have the option to buy an extension  or build one,  or figure out how to maximize the core store.  Heated seats on a BMW are options too, but pretty nice to have in the frozen north!.

BTW,  you may not be aware that AbanteCart core devs get 25% of the fees in the MarketPlace.  You know they provide a great open source cart free of charge,  but they have ongoing costs like all of us.  So when you buy an extension or extended support you are contributing to the cart longevity also.

Cheers,  everchanging.

Everchanging,   I will let the AbanteCart devs answer most of your concerns.   But let me clear up the time frame.   The ORIGINAL buy allows for updates and support  for 120 days (4 months).   You can extend that to a year (twelve months) at purchase time. 

If you want continuing updates  you can renew your updates and support for a year (twelve months) at a time.

The actual time should relieve you a bit.

When you buy a vehicle you need to supply it with fuel, oil , new tires on occasion etc.  You can't say to the vehicle maker  I bought your car you need to keep it running.

Let me just add from an extensions provider side,  it takes times and effort to maintain extensions to continue working for each of the AbanteCart version updates.  Sometimes with the change  it takes almost as much time to update an extension as it did to write it originally.  So for many years,  extension providers get paid once and provide free updates several times a year,  in our case for 7 years for some of them.   IMO  that is one of the reasons AbanteCart lags behind other carts in extensions and templates. 

I am sure AbanteCart Devs will expand on why they moved to this model.

Support / Re: Free shipping in coupon is not an option in checkout
« on: April 01, 2021, 07:42:58 PM »

You have a percentage discount of 10 enabled.
Usually on the free shipping  the DISCOUNT field is empty  and Total amount is the dollar figure where free shipping kicks in. (can ge zero)
Customer needs to apply the coupon code for the free shipping to appear.
Try leaving the Discount field empty
And if you have a threshold of order total before they get free shipping input that in the total amount.
I’ve included a screen shot of a coupon that works.

are you perhaps using Paypal Express as a payment processor?

According to
