Hi there

Thank you for your question.

Yes, you are able to create an online store that accepts several modes of payment.

We have a tutorial that explains how to create an online store and adding products, using the Online Store feature on Yola. Click here to see the tutorial.

I hope this information helps. Please let us know if you have more questions about this.

Hi Benyair19 - if you use PayPal, this means that visitors to your site can pay using PayPal or their credit cards (eg. Visa or Mastercard) securely. You are not limited to paying via PayPal only.

Hi

PayPal allows your users to make credit card payments. See this link for more details: https://www.paypal.com/za/cgi-bin/web....

Unfortunately, the Yola online store widgets do not currently allow you to create categories for your products. However, you can add to your site by visiting PayPal (http://www.paypal.com) and customizing the code so that you can have a size 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.

I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you need more information about creating an online store.
