Hi I need some help I have some HTML and PHP that I need to get into Yola webpage. It is for a percentage discount button for Paypal. Now the HTML is no problem as I can just use a widget, but how do I get around the PHP.

Thank you

Hi Leah,

Regrettably PHP can't work in Yola built sites so unfortunately this solution won't work.

Is there no work around??

Or does anyone know of any code that can be used in Yola to implement discounts with Paypal?

Thank you

The discount can be applied separately to each item, and can be a percentage of the price or a set amount. you can generate buttons using their website tools, but you can also modify or create your own with HTML code, which will apply any amount you wish to give as a discount, for example, $3 or 3 percent.

Step 1
Open the HTML page that includes your items for sale.

Step 2
Locate the area where you want to place your button and insert the relevant code. Change it in accordance with the comments based on your particular need:
https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cm...

Note the code for the discounts. Use the flat rate or the percentage, but not both.

Hi Leah,

To use Coupon discounts with PayPal requires a fairly high level of programming or markup knowledge because PayPal currently don't have this code to implement directly. Such strategies are available online.

The best suggestion currently is to use a shopping cart and Yola really do have a premier cart, "Online Store", for direct implementation on their site. It's not free but it's a very reasonable cost.

Hi Gop

Thanks for the info. Have looked before at the online store widget, but it doesn't tell you anything about what it can do. Are there any videos to look at, or do you know if it allows for discounts to be set up.

Let me just tell you briefly my needs. My website is going live on a companies internet, or at least a link to it. When these people buy anything they, hopefully, enter a code and get a % discount automatically. Do you know if this is something it will be able to deliver?

Thank you for your help

Q: Are there any videos to look at:

A: Yes there are Leah. http://www.ecwid.com/
Series of Videos: Video Tutorial; View Demo; Examples; Features.

To your second question, also affirmative.
The Coupon discount facility has been recently introduced and works as you envisage.
