Hi,
I was wondering if there was a way, using the paypal widget, to have one picture of an item, but different prices, without listing them each seperately. For example I am selling a print and have 3 different sizes, as well as national and international shipping prices. This means that I have to list each print 6 x in order to cover all the various prices. I have seen some places where they have say a print, and then a drop down box that offers the different sizes and costs, is there anything like this available here.

Thanks

Hi C,

There is an answer for this. Kan Thai Decor has described a process which allows this. I can't find his response at the moment but if you can search for his responses or even send an email to him, then I think that will be your answer. www.kanthaidecor.com is his site address.

Hi sacredjourney1111

As Gop has mentioned, it is possible to add multiple pricing to one item without having to add several product options.

You may find the Website Payments Standard Integration Guide helpful too.

Good luck with building your site! Let us know if you need more help.

Hi Gop, I had a look at the site you suggested, but it seems he is not using the paypal widget. He has google checkout. Looks much too complicated for me. I am new at all this. But thanks for the suggestion.

Nazlie,
I had a look at the guide you suggested, but saw nothing that seemed relelvant. Could you be a bit more specific re: 'it is possible to add multiple pricing to one item without having to add several product options'.

An explanation would be fantastic!

Thanks, c

Hi C. I copied and pasted this because it was buried in a "read more" facility :)

Thinking you can just change the category to your own? Good luck.

I would think that you could easily use a Paypal drop down menu from the Paypal website and use the following website as a reference point to include as your drop down items.

http://www.theoremcreations.com/ppc/b...

If you used say 12 of the sizes shown then that would mean that you would need to add 12 drop down items with a different price for each one.

1. Sign into your PayPal 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 types of ad sizes you offer in the "Menu option name" box and the price in the price box.
7. Tick "Use specific amount" in the shipping section and in the price box place a zero.
8. Click "Done".
9. When done editing click "Create Button".
10. In the next window and in the (Website) code box click the "Select Code".
11. Right click on the highlighted text and click "Copy".
12. Open your site editor and drag an HTML Widget where you need it.
13. In the HTML Widget paste the code.
14. Then republish your site.

That seems to me to be one of your better options rather than have them buy an ad per square inch. An inch is not used in the computer world the same way it is here... Pixels are the measurement of choice.

As to the upload option I think that you might look at http://www.uploadthingy.com/
as it takes the uploading of the ad image with size choices and is fully integrated with paypal already. At $9 per month it is one of the easier ways to accomplish both needs. They offer a free 7 day trial to check them out.
