About tracking number user : Steven 2014-01-08 14:49:34 (JST)  No.317


I just tried to fill tracking number for an order, it's under "Sender/Recipient : 1 " of order detail page and I use "Change Sender/Recipient" button to do the change.
I firstly fill the tracking number like "0681066302" in the field and click "View Entry" button. In next page, I then click "Complete Setting" button to confirm the change. But it seems go back to previous page and ask me to view entry again.
I go back to order detail to check if the change is applied. But found the tracking number field is still empty.

Is there a certain rule for this field or any restriction on it?

Many thanks.

About Fee function user : Steven 2013-09-18 19:52:38 (JST)  No.309



Is it possible to add a function in Item then Shop Owner can specify the Fee percentage for certain Payment method, like Paypal or others?

Or can this function be added to the payment method then shop owner can specify a overall fee percentage for this method?

Many thanks.

Hi, Steven san,

If you wish to have your customers bear the expense of credit card transaction fee,
Ochanoko has no function to add that fee in the shopping cart.

Unfortunately, we have no plan to add such a function currently.

How to edit the Shopping Guide? user : Herve 2013-08-18 23:41:45 (JST)  No.304


Hello Kawakata san,

I want to edit the Shopping Guide and change the 1~5
I found this answer by ochanoko-Gyoubu No.11855
on the Japanese BBS

I understood I can only "undisplay" the 1~5 part, and not edit it.

But was not able to perform the change as explained in Japanese.

I did not understand where to paste this:

.help_page_1 .page_sub2_top,

.help_page_1 .guide_text {

display: none;



Could you help me with that?

Dozo Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.

Groups Setting user : Tony 2013-07-30 15:08:36 (JST)  No.301


Dear Ochanoko - Kawakata san,

I think Ochanoko can improve the Groups Control setting better.
- Right now, in case you have a large number of groups, it really takes time to search for a group in the list of groups.
Can you make the Search function to search for a group in the list?
- I am wondering if the Group setting and Categories Setting can work as the New Items or Recommendations Setting, so it will be easier and faster to add or remove many items to a group.
Just my thinking to improve Ochanoko better.

Group settings user : Ochanoko/Kawakata 2013-07-31 15:08:15 (JST)  No.302


Dear Tony san,

Thank you for your suggestions.

<Group search function>
We will add a search function to Group setting page.
However, we have some urgent matters now, and please give us some time to make a start.

We quickly increased a number of groups on one page from 20 to 50.
This must help you search a group using Ctrl+F on your browser.

<Add an item to category and group>
On Ochanoko-net, an item must belong to a category but cannot to multiple categories.
If you change a category, you must operate on an item registration page.
Categories and groups are similar functions and basically work in the same way.

'New items and recommended items' and 'Categories and groups' have different purposes.
New items and recommended items are added element, and
categories and groups are basic attributes of an item

Groups Setting user : Tony 2013-08-01 12:17:17 (JST)  No.303


Thank you so much Ochanoko - Kawakata san,

The idea of increasing from 20 to 50 items in the Group list is really nice. We can use Ctrl F to search for a group.
This is exactly what customers need at this moment.
Always the best service and support!!!
