Hi vikasruchi.puri

Unfortunately it is not possible yet to sell products from the Picture Gallery Widget. If you want to sell products, you must use a different widget which would be one of the PayPal ecommerce Widgets, and I'm afraid you will need to upload your pictures and add your descriptions there again.

But: We are about to release a great eCommerce Online shop feature in December which will give you lots of more options and functions as the PayPal Ecommerce Widgets. You will need to upload pictures of your products there again, but it will be worth it! For more information please check out the "Yola Roadmap" post on our Copmany Blog.

Hello vikasruchi.puri,

The new eCommerce feature has not yet been released. We are still currently QA'ing this.

It is not possible to add multiple pictures of a product using the PayPal widget. If you're wanting to add various sizing options, you can do this using the PayPal buttons. To use PayPal's buttons, you will need to create your own Online Store layout using Picture Widgets and Text Widgets as this cannot be incorporated into the current Ecommerce Widgets.

Here's how to retrieve the code:

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 details of your selection and click "Done".
7. When done editing click "Create Button".
8. In the next window and in the (Website) code box click the "Select Code".
9. Right click on the highlighted text and click "Copy".
10. In the Sitebuilder, drag and drop an HTML Widget where you need it.
11. In the HTML Widget paste the code and click on "Save".
12. Republish your site by clicking on the green "Publish to the web" button.

For detailed information on using PayPal, please view PayPal's Website Payments Standard Integration Guide PDF (5.8mb PDF).

I hope that helps!
