Cart checkboxes

I swear I had this setup before, but it has been a while. I am going to switch back to billing for shipping after the order is placed. On one of my old sites, I had a checkbox on the cart page that had the customer check this box to acknowledge that fact. I have added a checkbox but it doesn't show up.

I have cleared templates and cache multiple times with no change. I have also checked my custom CSS to make sure I don't have it set to display: none somewhere. What am I doing wrong?

The only gallery setup on my test set is here: https://portfolios.montetrumbull.com/ga … andscape2/.

Thanks!

Re: Cart checkboxes

Hi Monte,

Did you enable Invoiced Checkout in the Cart settings?

couple other things to try.
Log out of Backlight and then log back in.
Close out the browser and then relaunch or view in a different browser

Re: Cart checkboxes

Hi Rod! Thanks. I enabled invoiced checkout and that worked, but that isn't what I want to do. I still want to checkout thru PayPal but just have this checkbox on the cart page to let them know I will bill them later for the actual shipping fees. Maybe I did it using phpplugins before?

Re: Cart checkboxes

This is what I'm seeing after logging into PayPal and being sent back to your site to complete purchase:

Re: Cart checkboxes

Hey Rod. Sorry, I didn't get a notice that you had posted. Yeah, that is what I am seeing. The top line is an additional field, the others are checkboxes. Before, it showed as a checkbox in the cart itself, so you would need to check it before proceeding to PayPal. Thanks!

Re: Cart checkboxes

looks like now you just need to check it before you can do the final submit on the order.

Re: Cart checkboxes

Just seems rather clunky when something right there in the cart would be much cleaner. I'll just look for a different way to handle it. Thanks Rod!

Re: Cart checkboxes

I've added a bit of instruction using jQuery via phplugins in the cart of my workshops page. You can check it out by adding anything to the cart on this page:
https://workshops.barbeephoto.com/sign-up/

You could place a notice informing the customer of what they'll see and need to agree to after PayPal returns them to your site.

Let me know if you want the code.

Re: Cart checkboxes

That looks like it might work. I'd use the code if you don't mind. Do you have invoiced checkout turned on then?

Thanks!

Re: Cart checkboxes

yes, I do.

here's the code.
I've got it inside the scripts() hook using echo '

<script>
	if ($("p.skip-to-checkout").length) {	
	$("<p class=\'instructions\' style=\"font-size:larger;\"><strong>Instructions: </strong>If paying by check, click on the <strong>\"Pay by Check\"</strong> button. Otherwise, click on the <strong>PayPal</strong> button.</p>").insertAfter($("p#checkout-total"));
	}
</script>

Re: Cart checkboxes

That worked perfect to insert the text I wanted and I was able to get rid of the checkboxes and turn off invoiced checkout. Thanks so much for your help!
