    Lightbulb OsCommerce Questions

    I am setting up my first OsCommerce and just have a few questions if anyone could help.

    1. What is the best credit card processor as far as fees and usability to use with OsCommerece?
    2. Can you allow shipping only to US?
    3. How are shipping rates calculated, I am planning to use UPS, is there any communicationg with the UPS server or something?
    4. How do I get that "People who bought this item also bought.." block under the product detail page?

    Also, is UPS the best shipping company for OsCommerce?

    OSCommerce doesn't care what processor you use. Choose the one that offers you the best rates and service.

    Once again OSCommerce has nothing to do with this. You can ship anywhere you choose to ship to.

    Not sure about this. I would suspect there is a module you can add on for this.

    By default it comes with a UPS module for shipping calculations... it uses zip codes and weight. You can get a more complicated one that also includes box dimensions.

    Check out the CREloaded.com version of OSC. It comes preinstalled with many useful contributions.

    If you only want to sell to US, remove all other country zones under your localization.
