I need to use a Brazilian service named "PagSeguro" that trades with Brazilian currency. They offer libraries and modules in various languages and platforms, but I wonder if it could be installed on a Yola website.

Hi Alex

I'm not sure whether or not PagSeguro can be implemented on Yola. As I am unable to translate the language, I cannot see what programs or files they use.

If it's just a matter of embedding a code, then, this may be possible. Can you see what their instructions are for placing it on a website?

Thank you, Littleus, for your reply.

Well, I'm a webprogramming layman, so I can't tell just yet. What I know is that they offer libraries in PHP, .Net, Python, and Rails. They also offer modules for Joomla/Virtuemart, OsCommerce, Magento, Wordpress, Blogger, Locaweb, Drupal, DHMCS, and Prestashop platforms.

My total newbie's wild guess is that perhaps the PHP libraries might work. Yola's innards run on PHP, don't they? I also wonder if I'd have to download the site, implement the PHP libraries, and publish the site elsewhere, in case the implemmentation cannot be done inside Yola's editor. I know nothing of PHP programming though.

Their OsCommerce module is programmed in PHP. I wonder if that would be compatible. However, unlike Yola, OsCommerce is a platform similar to Joomla, that you download and run on a local or remote server. The installation instructions are apparently simple, but seem foreign to what's done within Yola's editor.

Well, speaking of embedding code, they do have some here that would steer the shopper to their own website (only the products would be listed at Yola):

http://visie.com.br/pagseguro/carrinh...

Here is another block of code that would be used if I had my own shopping cart at Yola, and sent PagSeguro all the info regarding the purchase, with the possible exception of the shopper's personal data:

http://visie.com.br/pagseguro/carrinh...

Like I said, I'm no programmer, and I don't recognize the code, so I don't know whether it would be useful or not. Is it PHP?

Thank you for your attention.

Hi Alex

I know that Yola does run on PHP but we cannot upload PHP.

I would suggest emailing support@yola.com and they would be in a better position than I to tell you if the PagSeguro is compatible with Yola. I don't want to give you any wrong information. I'm confident that they will be able to assist.

When you do find out, would you mind posting the answer here? I'm sure others may find this to be valuable!

Great suggestion! Certainly many users will inevitably want to implement online stores that operate directly with foreign currencies. If this hasn't be implemented, Yola developers should be concerned enough to work on it.

Oh BTW, your "Deja Vu Apparel" site is awesome!

I use Alertpay by setting a link to the processor file, which after payment, gives a link to your own download file (like a store). You could try this with them, I think sould be the same situation. Let me know if you need more information.

Hello Kent! Thank you for your reply!

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Where does the "processor file" operate? Is it in Alertpay's own servers? What exactly would my "own download file" be? I am not planning to sell downloadable software.

I see Alertpay is a Canadian solution, which operates with dollars and euros (according to their website). Thanks for the recommendation. I'll e-mail them and ask them about transactions in other currencies.

I see you have a currency conversion table in your website (very cool site, BTW!), but I don't yet understand how alertpay could operate with so many alternatives (even precious metals and obsolete currencies!).

Edit: oh, I see now that Alertpay "supports 21 currencies", but I could not find which those would be on their website.

Cheers.

Processor files = the items you list to sell through the processor.
Servers - yes, these flies are added to you account with the processor.
Download Files = sub files you add to your yola site (not seen in menu). After payment, the processor then forwards the buyer to the link of your subpage in you website again where they are given a link to download the product. The processor also can direct you to a delivery address to send non-downloadable product to by post or carrier. (Sorry, I should have asked what products you want to sell).

I see. I want to sell cleaning items in wholesale amounts. I'll e-mail Alertpay regarding the use of Brazilian currency. It could be a solution.

Hi Ricardo,

You can see that this thread is very old (>3 years ago so the information here is not relevant to today's information)

With the new Online store there are many options for payment gateways.

Please see this reference: http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/15853303/P...

You now have options for gateways and currencies above and beyond the simple PayPal widgets.

There is a subscription cost for this being approximately $20 per month from Yola or if you only have a few products (less than 100) then it is free by using the Ecwid store directly from http://ecwid.com
