Eshop AIM Integration

Eshop is a nice ecommerce plugin for WordPress but it does not support taking credit card information directly on the site but redirects the customer to site or Paypal or some other online payment processing. I had a need to accept cards without redirecting the customer to a external site so I wrote a patch for Eshop. Download patch here

The patch is a patch file and you’ll need to use the unix patch command to apply it to an existing eshop folder. It was created with eshop 6.2.2 but might work on other version with some tweaking. Download eshop 6.2.2 here.

The merchant submits a transaction. The payment gateway securely sends the transaction to the processor. The processor sends money to the merchant’s bank. The processor sends the status of the transaction to the gateway – either approved or denied. PayPal is probably the most popular one, both for its reliability and security. Other payment services include Google Wallet, Payoneer, Skrill, among others.

To patch run the command:

patch -p1 < authaim.patch

Within the directory. The patch file will have to be located in the directory as well.

If you don’t have unix or can’t use patch here’s a prepatched version:
Prepatched eshop.6.2.2-aim

I make no promises that it will actually work properly so test it before installing it on a live site.

Leave comments if you have any problems and I’ll see what I can do.

I try to get a patched version for 6.2.8 soon.

  1. I downloaded your pre-patched version from here and the AIM integration does not seem to work. I still get re-directed to the page instead of it keeping me on the website. I have cleared my cache and tried multiple browsers and there is no change. Any idea what is going wrong here?


  2. I already have eshop 6.2.8 with a full shop set up and hate that everyone gets forwarded to I really want this patch but dont have a clue were to begin with patch run the command. I dont want to delete current eshop and reinstall the prepatched version since it will probably delete so much time of product improts, etc. Can someone please post have a step by step dummy guide on how to apply the patch or swap standard eshop with the prepached version! Thanks!!!

  3. One thing I noticed with this is that I fail to get customer and admin notification emails for orders. I tried disabling it and then using the cash option – I get both emails.
    FYI this is your full prepatched version that I uploaded to my site with the full eshop you provided.

    I have to tell you, Im pretty frustrated with eshop at this point and the main developer in the forum is hostile to almost every question I see posted there. They obviously put a lot of work into this plugin but it just shouldnt be out there anymore if they arent willing to support it.

    Kudos on trying to integrate AIM, im still trying to work on a solution for the emails.
