Seeking working examples of shopping cart websites in Yola

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
  • Answered
Hi there. I'm trying to find some samples of yola sites that use the shopping cart feature in its variety of forms. From what I can tell, there are only 1 or 2 sites in your gallery of yola sites that reference the use of that feature, and in those cases, I was unable to call up the site for various reasons (url timed out, site no longer offers shopping cart function, etc.).
Can you please provide me with 1-3 examples of sites that are currently up (and working) using the shopping cart function? I would like to see various examples of how the shopping cart can be integrated into a yola site. I am working with a client who is needing an e-commerce site for about 50 products and want to show her yola as an option. But without a working shopping cart site, I can't provide yola as an option to her.
Thank you.

Brianna, do you know of any Yola sites that use Mal's Ecommerce, www.http://www.mals-e.com? Their embeddable cart software was mentioned by Monique in another thread about a year ago.

I've never heard of it, but am wondering now if anyone at Yola is using it.

Thanks for the original question, Catherine.

Thanks so much, Brianna. This is a tremendous help. I'm actually rather fascinated that these sites were created through Yola. I'm especially smitten with Poochieprints.com. It appears that the designer of that site utilized a number of plug-ins to the site, including flash and javascript. I did not know that Yola supported these. Can you give me some hint as to how that was done? Is that something that a designer like myself could do on my own? Or would that only be a service provided only through Yola's premier design services?

Hello Catherine,

The possibilities are endless when it comes to customizing a site with Yola! Although we do not have widgets for everything, we do have workarounds for most. Also, upgrading to our Yola Silver account removes the Javascript restrictions.

Here is a fantastic tutorial that talks about embedding a flash file to your Yola site: Embedding a Flash File.

Please remember that we are available for 24/7 support at support@yola.com, where we can work one on one with you on specific issues that arise.

I am so glad to hear that you are excited with the services that we offer and am very eager to help you get your sites underway!

Hi Brianna,
I'm looking to make the leap to Yola Silver. I had some questions about the e-commerce features. I'm currently using PayPal's shopping cart. Does Yola have their own shopping cart?

Are there any restrictions as to shopping cart or overall design with Silver?

I've been trying how to figure out the way to use unique password/discount codes. I finally found out a way to generate them, now I need to figure out if Yola's shopping cart or e-commerce features support unique codes? I have 100 of them.

Sorry if I'm not being clear enough. I'm still learning as I go... let me know if I need to elaborate.

Thank you!!

Hello mml177

Brianna is currently offline. I hope you don't mind me stepping in her behalf. We are integrated with PayPal's shopping cart as well, where we offer Single Product widget and a Product Catalog Widget. However, if you wish to use your discount codes, I will need to use the PayPal buttons to set this up. Here's a link to adding the buttons: Customizing buttons from PayPal. I hope that helps!

Hi Sanja, thank you for replying. I'm familiar with creating buttons, but from all my google searching, it sounds like there has to be some coding involved on my website, so that paypal recognizes the codes? Something about Scripting?

Hi Catherine!
I stumbled upon your post and am so happy that you liked the PoochiePrints website. I am the owner of PoochiePrints and created the website myself. When I started with Yola about a year ago I knew nothing about creating an e-commerce site, or anything about Yola for that matter! I had some experience with Dreamweaver but nothing that gave me a huge advantage. I have to say that I couldnt be happier with Yola. I have never come across something I can't do and for the price...wow! If you have any questions about my site or how I achieved something, just send me an e-mail because I would love to help. I know how it can be a bit overwhelming at first. I also found the forums extremely helpful.

Have a wonderful day!

Is there a way to stay on the Yola site when adding to cart? Right now it takes the user off the site to a PayPal site and then they have to click 'Continue Shopping' to back. This is cumbersome for ordering multiple items, one or two wouldn't be bad but if a customer needs to order 5 or 10 or more it's a lot of back and forth. I am hoping there is a way to just click 'Add to Cart' and then once all items are added the user could click 'View Cart' and then be taken to the PayPal page.

Hello Paul,
We don't have another integrated shopping cart at this time, however Google Checkout is something that can be added using the HTML Widget, this might work better for you. Here is a link with more information on this: Adding Google Checkout.

I think you can see http://www.cashie.biz for this. In this you dont have to leave the yola for doing cintinue shopping but then there are fees involved in this. which you can see on http://www.cashie.biz/pricing

Otherwise you can also use www.mals-e.com for yola.com. It work great with paypal, alertpay, moneybookers and for others there is fees involved.

I am using the mals-e for my website as of now & it give me great oppurtunity to do many things.

Hope this will help. My site is www.needtruehelp.com
