Im trying to make a site for the first time. Im making a site to sell personalized baby onesies/tshirts. Im wondering if its possible when customers go into "online store" is there any way I can have subtitles or different photo groups? (girls designs, boys designs, etc..) and then have the products under thoes categories? When I add a new product, its all on the main online store page and its a lot of product to just browse pages and pages. Thanks in advance!

 Hi LeiaD

The current Online Store Widget does not allow for multiple pictures per product, as you would need for your store.  Luckily, there is a way you can add several pictures for one product, but it is a bit of a workaround.  The way to do this, is to create a store page without using the Ecommerce widgets and create your own PayPal button using some HTML code.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. First, you will need to create your own PayPal button code.  Login to your PayPal account.

  2. Click on the "Merchant services" tab at the top of the page.

  3. Then click the "Buy Now" button or the "Add to Cart" button.

  4. Select the button type.  Enter the name and payment details.

  5. Add the details of your selection.

  6. Click "Done", then "Create Button".

  7. On the next screen, click "Select Code". Right click on the highlighted text and click "Copy".

  8. Back on your Yola site - on your new online store page - drag a HTML Widget onto the page.

  9. Paste the code into the HTML Editor.

  10. Click "Save".  You will see the PayPal button on the page.

To add the products, use the Column, Picture and Text Widgets to design the page as you would like to layout your products.

I hope this is helpful.  Please let us know if you need more help or have any questions.

Thank you
