digital and physical goods on the same website

I've intergrate Digital file pro to creat an mp3 section, the problem an now having is:
(1) it's not uploading mp3 file with big size but it's accepting like 8 seconds mp3 file, please where can i change these size to bigger one in digital file pro2
(2) Since i have both digital and physical goods, I've setup the postage as £6.00, but when an mp3 file is purchase, I dont want the postage to be applied to emp3, the postage is just for the physical good. At the moment am using the flat rate setting from ecart shipping.
(3) Also I've fiished How To Create a Download Center successfuly but after making purchase and i was directed to download page, when I click the download botton, i couldnt download the file. it's as if the botton is not working. Please find the attcahed to my dowbload centre

thanks

There are a couple of settings in PHP that can effect the size of file that you can upload. These settings are upload_max_filesize, and max_execution_time. By default the filesize is set to 2MB and the execution time is set to 30 secs. You will need to check in your php.ini file to update these settings.

As for the shipping you will need to come up with a way to exclude items that do not have shipping associated with them. One way you can do this is to have a particular value in a column for items that are shippable. You can then alter your rule to say 'if the presence of an item in the cart has a column value of' then choose the column that indicates the item is shippable and enter the value that would be in this column. This way the rule will only trigger if you have shippable items in the cart.

As for the trouble you are having with the download center at what point are you not getting the proper results? Were you able to follow all of the steps without error?

You wrote "One way you can do this is to have a particular value in a column for items that are shippable"

Will I add these coulm to my product database, or is it going to be added to the ecart rule?

I've created a column call prodType in my product category database. I have prodType 1= books
prodType 2 = mp3.

Using the ecart object I created prodType in COLUMNS.
I now update my add to cart buttons.
On each page that I have an add to cart button, by double clicking the add to cart button server behavior and set a value for the new column of prodType on the bindings panel.

I now went to edit the shipping using ecart, I set two rules
1) for shippable product (book)
my condition is: Number of items with a specific column value
If the total number of items where prodType has a value of 1
is >= a value of 0

calculation
Flat rate 2.00


2) for non shippable (mp3)
my condition is: Number of items with a specific column value
If the total number of items where prodType has a value of 2
is >= a value of 0

calculation
Flat rate 0.00

but at the end of the day mp3 (prodType2) is still charged for postage of 2.00
but it's meant to charge 0.00

please find the attached documents

thank you

for a upload_max_filesize = 190M what is the execution time i shoul set it to?

You cannot specify a charge rule with 0 for the amount. A charge rule will only ever add to the total for an order, it will not zero out the other charges.

You only need to setup the rule where you would like to charge a value based on the conditions. It seems that you have the first rule setup for this correctly. So if you have any items in your cart that have the prodType column set to 1 you will be charged the flat rate shipping of 2.00 regardless of whatever other items are in the cart.

For the upload limitations you need to ensure that you can upload the max size, and that the timeout is large enough for you to make the upload. So this part will depend on how fast the upload is occurring. If you want to upload a 10MB file but only have a 300kb upload rate it would take about 4.5 minutes or so to do this. So you need to set this to a value that will allow you to upload the size of file you need based on the upload speed of your connection.

1MB = 1024KB = 8192kb

Thank you, I've edit the shipping using ecart, I rules
1) for shippable product (book)

If the total number of items where prodType has a value of 1
is = a value of 1

calculation

but now, it's not adding the shipping to the cart when I added it to the basket.


And also I went to the main site bought an mp3, the payment was made successfully.

I would like to get the charge rule worked out before any other issues are looked into on this thread.

When you posted last about the rule you mentioned that you were getting charged $2.00. Is the rule setup the same as it was? You can post back with a copy of your WA_eCart > WA_Store_Cart_PHP.php file and I can check on the rule and try to test it out.
