Is it possible to have the Categories and maybe sub categories in the side column instead of on top of the banner area.

Also, what is the size of the banner? I've chosen a martian landscape in the free version templates.

No Worries, I found answers to both in the Tutorials.
For those that may have a similar question make your Categories links in the side bar.
For the size of a banner that you can change (some don't allow banner change) click on the banner and right down the bottom it will tell you how big the banner is.

I do have another question Kershnee.
Is there anyway of adding a Bank deposit widget or module to a yola website?
I'm Australian as well, not American, so American modules wouldn't help.

Hi there Jenny,

We have an online store widget you can add to your page. The Widget uses Paypal so you should be able to use it in Australia.

Here is a tutorial that explains how to create an online store using the Online Store feature on Yola. Here is the link: Creating An Online Store .

I hope this helps.

Hi Jeremy,
I have already installed the widget, but there is the problem of adding the shipping cost to the price or doing the work around in Paypal itself.
As i already use paypal for another venture I have going I can't use Paypal to add the shipping. That why I was hoping for a Bank deposit module that could be incorporated as well.

Hi there Jenny,
Unfortunately we don't have a bank deposit module you can add to your Yola site.
However there are a few alternatives to Paypal that you can add. You can google for "paypal alternative" and you will get some alternatives that you can use with your site.

One you can try is Google Checkout:

Google Checkout is a checkout service that allows you to process orders and charge credit or debit cards for free. Google Checkout is not integrated into the Sitebuilder, but you can use it by utilizing the HTML Widget. Here are some instructions that will help you set this up:

To get started please to go to Google Checkout .

You will need to follow through the process of setting up an account. If you all ready have an account with Google for other services such as Email, Analytics, AdSense or AdWords you will be able to use this account. You will be required to add additional information, such as Personal Contact Information, Public Contact Information and Product Type and Financial Information (this will require a valid credit card).

When you agree to Google's Terms of Service and the sign up is complete, you will be able to set up how you want to integrate Google Checkout with your site. You can easily set up "Buy Now" buttons which can be set up to sell multiple versions of a product. To create "Buy Now" buttons click on the "Buy Now Buttons" link.

You will be able to set up a "Basic Button" with one option, or a "Button With Options". You will then be able to give your item a name, description and price. Once you have completed your button click "Create Button Code" and you will get a block of code.

To add this button to your site:

1. Copy and paste the block of code that was created.
2. Log into your Sitebuilder.
3. Drag and drop an HTML Widget onto your page where you want the button to appear.
4. Paste in the code.

Note: If you would like to put this button next to the picture of a product you can drag and drop a Two Column Widget onto the page. Then drag and drop a Picture Widget onto one side and an HTML Widget onto the other (putting the button code in the HTML Widget).

You can create as many buttons as you would like; simply remove the product information from the fields, add new product information and click "Create Button Code".

Click on the "Settings" Tab to specify a bank account where you would like the payments to go. There are other ways you can use Google Checkout on your website such as with a pre-integrated shopping cart. Please look around Google Checkout to see if there are other ways you would like to use it.

Here is a link to the Google Checkout Merchant Help Website where you will be able to find a variety of help topics.

I hope this helps.

I personally recommend learning paypal, you can include shipping with paypal. Although I don't use paypal currently for anything besides Ebay, I do know the option's available.

When buying in Ebay, you can set a price, to include a shipping price, when selling a product in Ebay, you have the option to purchase and pay for shipping (that was added during the buyer's purchase) and you can print a shipping label directly from Paypal. Although this is in reference to Ebay, the same options are available for regular users. I would recommend learning how to use paypal and you'll find your answer there. It's late, otherwise I'd find the answers for you! Hope you have a good night and find the answers you're looking for! :)
