i am selling ads on my yola, i can get the single product, and the multiple product with paypal set up, but it wont let my config it to where the person can type in the number of square inches they would like to purchase. i also would like to have a upload link in the purchase process so that the people wouldnt have to email the ad image to me.

thanks in advace =D

ps, i didnt know which product or service to tag it with, so i tagged it with all 3 that it might be, if you know whether this question is concerning "Yola", "My Yola", or "Yola Tutorials and Knoledg..." please also let me know)

log into your pay pal account
click "merchant services"
click "buy now button"
click "add drop down menu"
make a series of sizes... 5" / 10" /15" etc.

only other way is in the shopping cart screen that opens when the "buy now" button on your site is clicked, the customer can change "quantity" and you can label it as a per sq.in. price. that might be confusing though. ciao.

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.

Happy site building
Ed

Hey bud that ain't gonna fly sad to say because with that script the user uploads the files to the website and seeing as how we cannot yet have visitor uploads to our resources folder the code will bottom out when you click "Submit"

With that you need an actual folder that accepts files.
