        I appreciate your comments, but from the test site, I could not insert the image with the Codeof bars, as you have told me.
        Coincidentally today, for my collection barcode genre (with a poor delivery system.)
        Still I can not migrate to this work by failing to include a custom bar code for each invoice.
        If you have any help, I appreciate it.

        Undoubtedly, commercially, is very good idea.

        Why did not I think of me?

        @Las Lomitas
        You could insert the following code into your template:
        <img src="http://www.microscan.com/Barcode/idalin.asp?BARCODE={{invoice.number}}&BAR_HEIGHT=1.25&CODE_TYPE=0&CHECK_CHAR=N&ROTATE=0&ST=N&BACK_COLOUR=&FORE_COLOUR=&IMAGE_TYPE=1&DPI=38&quot; />
        This will generate a barcode according to the invoice number. Obviously this can be changed to any value or variable.
        Barcode can be customized to your needs. Courtesy of

        PLEASE NOTE: I am not encouraging the use of this particular website. This is just an example as to how flexible the HTML templates can be, if you put some thought into it.

        I've ammended the code and it works beautifully. Only the currency code is hard-coded, which shouldn't be an issue.
        Other data can be hard-coded, but I've used variables where possible.
        I neglected to read the templateTags section of the documentation before my previous post.
        The button is included both when printing as well as in the email. Not in the PDF.

        <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr"; method="post">
        <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
        <input type="hidden" name="business" value="{{settings.company_email}}">
        <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
        <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Invoice - {{settings.company_name}}">
        <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="{{invoice.gross_amount|round}}">
        <input type="image" src="http://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynow_LG.gif&quot; border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!">

        This is easy to do. The templates are HTML based, so simply generate the code for a "buy now" button with paypal and insert into the invoice. You can even link the invoice total to the button.
        <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr&quot; method="post">
        <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
        <input type="hidden" name="business" value="your@email.address">
        <input type="hidden" name="lc" value="US">
        <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Siwapp_Invoice_{{invoice}}">
        <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="{{invoice.gross_amount}}">
        <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
        <input type="hidden" name="button_subtype" value="services">
        <input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="0">
        <input type="hidden" name="bn" value="PP-BuyNowBF:btn_buynowCC_LG.gif:NonHostedGuest">
        <input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif&quot; border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
        <img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif&quot; width="1" height="1">

        The above example does not work due to the formatting of the invoice amount, but I'm sure that it wouldn't take much to fix. Siwapp developers, perhaps you could create a page with all the {{variables}} and what they relate to? And include a invoice.gross_amount which is formatted correctly for PP?

        I was really excited about this software until I discovered it didn't have a PayPal gateway. Back to the drawing board!

      • Las Lomitas commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        as you can customize each invoice with a small picture (to stick a bar code), to each bill?

      • Txopi David Rdgz Taubmann commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I believe this feature would create an explosion on the use of this app, so it should be very stable, and maybe only with one provider (the most used one... paypal) at the beginning.

        Certainly useful, and do-able, but in my opinion, the best way for you to get some income and, be able to live from this, would be to first allow PLUGINS, and then create this feature as a plugin that's sold separate.

        Also voting for a Paypal option, as it's honestly the only online payment system NEEDED (as users can still pay with a credit card whether they have a PayPal account or not). Freshbooks has a decent (although not free) :( model.

        @m@defli.me already have the basic module ready.
        any clue when payment system being integrated? It will be a great breakthrough for this system. Looking forward to it.

        Just found this invoicing system and have to say it looks pretty good! Having read through the site and forum it seems to have stagnated somewhat? Is a new release pending soon and to include any of the requests?


      • michaelp commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This invoicing system looks very promising if it had a payment method -- or better yet the ability to create a plugin for different payment methods. Any luck with PayPal or GoogleCheckout on this? i'm thinking of adding an Authorize.net gateway plugin and any input on how others have done it would be greatly appreciated.

      • m@defli.com commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The module is still on my mind, I am just super busy atm. Hopefully have some times this week to take a look at it. I have a pretty clear picture in my mind of what I need to do.. i think :)
