Hello Sellers,

An updated preview release of Instant Checkout is now available on https://preview.bricklink.com.
We are still working on the final QA for this project but wanted to allow sellers
to play around with the new settings before its official launch.

Please make sure to close all open BrickLink browser tabs before entering the
sandbox environment. You will also need to clear your cache when switching between
BrickLink and the preview site.

NOTE: A warning will only be displayed the first time you enter the preview site,
unless you have deleted your cookies or switched browsers. Please pay careful
attention to the URL to make sure you are in the intended area of BrickLink.
All preview areas will have “preview” in the URL.

Updates:

-Item packaging dimensions are now visible in the catalog.
-New API for USPS courier (and the potential to add more in the future).
-The ability to set specific discounts or fees for payment types.
-An option in Store Settings to force Instant Checkout for new* buyers (turned
on by default).
*New buyer = less than 100 days of account history and less than 5 positive feedback
from different legitimate sellers.
-An option in Store Settings to use invoice when an order cannot be placed with
an instant checkout shipping method due to missing data.


Reminders:

- You will see two tabs for shipping methods on the preview site: “Shipping Methods”
(the classic version) and “New Shipping Methods.” We kept both tabs for now so
that you can compare the two. Keep in mind that new shipping methods added on
the preview site will look differently on either tab since the new version has
many different fields -- this is not a bug.

- Emails are turned off on the preview site.

====================================

How to Place Test Orders in Your Own Store

We've created several test accounts so that sellers can preview Instant Checkout
as a buyer in their own store. Based on your Ship-To locations, you can use one
of the following accounts for testing purposes on the preview site:

(Buyer's Location ⇒ Username / Password )

USA ⇒ instantcheckout / password
Germany ⇒ instantgermany / password
Netherlands ⇒ instantnether / password
Austria ⇒ instantaustria / password
United Kingdom ⇒ instantuk / password
Poland ⇒ instantpoland / password
Norway ⇒ instantnorway / password
Australia ⇒ icaustralia / password
Czech Republic ⇒ instantczech / password
Italy ⇒ instantitaly / password


**If you need a test account and your country is not listed, please submit
a request to bugs@bricklink.com and we will help you out.


You will need to use the following PayPal account information to complete
transactions as a buyer:


PayPal Account ID : previewbuyer@bricklink.com
First name : BrickLink
Last name : TestBuyer
Password : bricklink_buyer

For Stripe credit card transactions, you will need to use the following card
details:


Credit card number: 4242 4242 4242 4242 (Visa)
Expiration date: Any entered will work
CVC: Any entered will work

====================================



Please send any issues, feedback, or requests to bugs@bricklink.com.

Thank you so much!

Is there something the seller needs to select in their store's settings prior
to entering the sandbox?

The last time I tried this I ran into the same problem. I get to the checkout
page, select PayPal, and then it goes to the normal your order has been submitted
page. I've tired on several different stores and get the same thing.

Did you go to your shipping settings and enable automatic checkout for your shipping
methods? It is disabled by default, so you'll have to enable it for each
shipping method.

I don't have the option of selecting enable automatic checkout. If it is
on this page I am completely blind. Help!

It is under Management not shipping methods. Look there to enable it.

Your screenshot shows the old shipping methods page. You must edit your shipping
methods on the new shipping settings page https://preview.bricklink.com/v2/mystore/shipping.page

She has to look at the management tab on her store settings page to enable instant
checkout.

As out other thread got hijacked and has disappeared and we still do not have
any answers to the questions we reaised we thought it might be a good idea to
mention it here.

First the catalogue database now holds dimensions in mm, but they are not visible
on the catalogue page only on the My Inventory page. That page also holds a strange
field called pkg type with a drop down list box containing "weight bound"; "volume
bound" and "manual only" as the three choices. On our system it defaults to weight
bound. This is being done by part - we ask the question why and what is the purpose
of this field. It also appears to be missing weight and volume bound which is
the UK Postal system.

We would also like to know if the Paypal onsite implementation has been changed
to work with the Paypal address file as other implementations have done. If not
instant checkout will not be a feature we implement. Have never understood why
Bricklink implemented it the way they did. We have two locations and many more
listed on Paypal but because our Bricklink address is only 1 of those it simply
will not work for us.

Finally could we have a detailed explanation of how the system is going to determine
which large letter box or which small parcel box or ..... to use (for tare
etc) to determine shipping rates. For example 50 2 x 4 bricks will fit laying
flat in a small large letter box whilst 100 2 x 4 bricks will fit in a large
large letter box. In order for the system to do that it would almost have to
be using CAD principles to calculate volume. If it cannot recognise this then
postage rates will not be correct. People who do not pack their items flat would
not be able to use large letters and the difference between large letter rate
and small parcel is significant.

It looks like the preview site got an update (I now see an order that was done
at Oct 17, 2017 20:57).
But the instant checkout test accounts don't work anymore, I tried a few,
but all I get is an error "ID or Password Mismatch!"

Maybe the test accounts are disabled (or not present), please activate (or create)
them again so I can test the Instant checkout.

Regards,
Bas
