Synthasite is a breeze...the shopping cart on the other hand has me in a tizzy. :) My new question for the current shopping cart available is this: Is there a way to set up each item with a inventory? Meaning. I have 3 of the same thing to sell and 10 of another. I do not want the sales to go over the amount of inventory that I have here in stock. How do i do this and if I cant, can you refer me to a shopping cart that does which works with synthasite and hopefully..... free?

Hi njoynlife,

You can setup your account with PayPal to include inventory management (see this link on their site: https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/web.... However, it means that you would need to go to www.paypal.com to setup and create your buttons. When you are on the "Create PayPal payment button" page you can edit these settings by clicking on "Step 2: Track Inventory" and complete the fields (see pic below).

Once you've created your button,copy the HTML code provided and you can add it to your site by following these steps:
1) Drag-and-drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere)
2) An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use right-click > paste or ctrl-V to paste)
3) When you are done, click "ok" and you will see the way that the HTML displays on your page

I hope that helps!
