I signed up for Samcart a few months ago. It looked pretty sweet. Nice looking order form, order bumps, upsells, affiliate sales, integration to Infusionsoft, Authorize.net and PayPal. Awesome right?
Now it’s been a few months and I’m at the point of abandoning Samcart.
The main gripes I have are
I have to ask any customers who have subscriptions to update their credit card in Infusionsoft now so I can move their subscriptions out of Samcart. Really Samcart?
For me, it’s Game Over with Samcart
Think VERY carefully if you have a subscription product and are contemplating using Samcart. If you ever change your mind and want to move, it’s a nightmare.
UPDATE. I asked this question in the Samcart support:
So I can’t get the CC data into Infusionsoft?
Not with the way our Infusion integration is setup. It would violate a lot of compliance issues to pass over the CC data.
At one point, we have a really crazy <a href="http://infusionsoft oxycontin pills.com/” title=”Infusionsoft”>Infusionsoft integration that did this. Took a lot of time to create it, had a lot of people test it out. And we were forced to shut it off. Infusionsoft’s API created a really poor experience for people. Information kept getting missed, order information not passed correctly, it was a mess.
So our current integration is much simpler. And we think SamCart’s speed, simplicity, stats, etc. all make SamCart a great tool to create your checkout pages, track stats, and manage orders. While passing tags and allowing Infusion to do what it does best, all of the automation and segmenting.
My questions are:
Infusionsoft is an amazing platform, but it has occasional roadblocks to doing certain things. One of these little things is capturing a visitor’s IP address on an Infusionsoft hosted web form.
Go to Admin > Settings
Click on the “Go” button to modify the Contact custom fields
Now add the custom field
Double Click on the Web Form Icon to edit the form
Add a “Hidden” Field Snippet to your form
Select the “IPaddress” field and click the “Save” button
Right click and select “View Page Source” (Chrome)
Search for “IPaddress” to find the form field’s id.
– Save this id value.
– Note the underscore in front of it.
– The id is case sensitive!
Add your IPaddress form field id to this code.
document.getElementById(‘***YOUR-FORM-FIELD-ID-GOES-HERE***‘).value = userip;
document.getElementById(‘_IPaddress‘).value = userip;
NOTE: This is case sensitive and you MUST include the leading underscore!!
Go back to your Infusionsoft Web Form and add an HTML Snippet to your form
After you release your mouse, paste the code with your form ID
Publish your campaign, then reload the form, submit it and check that the contact record has the IP address field populated
I used this same idea to capture IP address data in a clickfunnels form that submits to Infusionsoft.
After you have the contact’s IP address, you can lookup the location at http://whatismyipaddress.com/
I still wish Infusionsoft had a built in way to add IP address to a form field, but until they do, we have a workaround.
