Hi Lisa, Welcome to SynthaSite! I'm so glad you're enjoying using the Site Builder! The short answer is "Yes!" SynthaSite offers these features -- you can add these buttons to your web pages.

The first thing I would want to ask you is: are you already a PayPal customer? You need to have a PayPal account set-up, in order to use it -- you should go to www.PayPal.com to learn more....

I can tell you how our system allows you to add PayPal 'Add to Cart' buttons:

Once you already have a PayPal account and have the code, you need to copy their HTML embed code to add a button.

Then do the following:
1) Drag and drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page
2) Paste the code (supplied by PayPal) over the default tags in the HTML editor
3) Click "ok" and your PayPal button will then be embedded on your page.

You would repeat this procedure for as many items as you want to sell -- in other words, if you have 20 items, you'll need 20 'Add to Cart' buttons. You'll also need to make at least one 'View Cart' button somewhere, so that customers will be able to see the items ordered, their total bill, and give them a chance to continue shopping or proceed to checkout. Again, this code is supplied by PayPal website, click on the Learn How PayPal works link ( https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/web... ) to learn more, and follow their instructions to get started.

Good Luck!

~ Adrienne

HI Lisa
I am interested to know how you got on with the Shopping Cart. I have been asked by a friend if I could creat a website for their new small business venture. It will also require about 200 images of the products they intend to sell. So I am hoping that Synthasite will be a good platform to use.
