Is the new shop version 2.3 suppose to calculate bank interest on its own?
Yes, that's what the dointerest.php file does (unless you mean something else?)

Also noticed it only likes whole number like 1 or 2, and wont take 0.02
That's fixed in the development version of SMFShop, and will be fixed in the next release. I posted a fix on how to achieve this (search this forum for it)

But a cron job has to be established to run the dointrest right? And if so, whats the path i run on the cron job? Im asking because i thought this would be done automatically (calculate interest)

Starting my scavenger hunt on the other fix.

thanks.

This doesnt work for me, I get a white screen then nothing happens when I run the script in IE. Am I supposed to run it some other way?

Got it to work on another PC!  :)

instead of calling dointerest.php from inside Sources/Shop

I used this file and setup the absolute path to SSI.php and placed it inside Sources/shop and saved it as interest.php and made a cron using interest.php and it seems to work. Could there be an issue with dointerest.php that comes with the package? I am using 3.0 by the way

I've been fighting with interest for 2 weeks now. For some reason no matter what I did I couldn't get the cron job to work from CPanel. Anyhow... I just found this thread, made my cronjob at http://www.onlinecronjobs.com (free) and tada! Instant interest!

I had to share since the site allows you to test your cron jobs so you don't have to wait 24 hours to check if it works. Thought you all would be interested.

Now I'm gonna see if I can set it that way with the Lottery job too. Will let you know if that works. :smitten:
