How do i make pay pal shopping cart items only have one quantity.

Basically, i have different items for sale that i want people to buy either one or multiples.
If i use a BUY IT NOW button they can only purchase one item.
If i use a ADD TO CART button it still only adds the one item but allows the buyer to enter a quantity .

I want to be able to add multiple items to the cart , but always have a quantity of 1.

Also , how can i add a different postage price to each item i sell.

Many thanks.

Hi Dani,

Unfortunately the Yola Online Store widgets don't yet offer this feature. However, you can add to your site by visiting PayPal - http://www.paypal.com and customizing the code so that you can have a selection on your site. Here's how:

1. Sign into your PayPal - http://www.paypal.com account.
2. Click the "Merchant services" tab in the horizontal menu.
3. Click the "Buy Now Button" or the "Add to Cart Button".
4. Choose button type and enter name and payment details.
5. Check the "Add drop-down menu with price/option" box half-way down the page.
6. Add the details of your selection.
7. Click "Done".
8. When done editing click "Create Button".
9. In the next window and in the (Website) code box click the "Select Code".
10. Right click on the highlighted text and click "Copy".
11. Open your site editor and drag an HTML widget where you need it.
12. In the HTML widget paste the code.
13. Then Update your site.

Hi Dani,

The quantity option is part of Paypal. I don't see any options to make it static.

You also mentioned earlier an option for adding postage. You would need to add the cost of shipping to the price in the description field or include it in the total cost of your product. We are hoping to add more functionality (like this one) to the PayPal widgets in the near future.
