is there a way of stopping the pop up window every time something is added to the shopping cart, its a bit off putting if you have to deal with 10 pop ups because you want to buy 10 items at the same time!

Also is there a way of adding a drop down for quantity?

Thanks
Kenny

Hello Kenny

This is the first time I've heard of someone getting a pop-up when using the Online Store feature.

I'm wondering if you have other codes on that page? Can you please share with us your site URL so that we can see how it behaves?

If you can manage to get a screenshot of what you see when the pop-up comes up, that will be helpful as well.

Thanks for your patience as we work on this together.

Hi saja,

here is the same link I sent you on the other question

http://sitebuilder.yola.com/ide/index...

...... click to buy and you will get the pop up screen, it might just be me being fussy....customers might quite like it as it gives them total control

Thank You
Kenny

Hi Kenny - Thank you for sharing the link. Are you referring to the "pop-up" being the Shopping Cart on Paypal? If so, I am not sure if it is possible to skip this step and let the user continue buying. I would need to look into this.

I see your one question got missed as well. With regards to quantity, unfortunately the Yola Online Store widgets don't yet offer this feature. However, you can add to your site by visiting PayPal and customizing the code so that you can have a quantity selection on your site. Here's how:

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.
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.

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

Hi Kenny,
What does the pop-up contain?
Could you post a screenshot or describe it so we know if we get the same results.

Thanks.

Hi Kershnee

thank you for both your answers, yes I was reffering to the paypal pop up and as I said to Sanja I think I am probably being a little over fussy, and I suppose it does give my customers totsal control of the quntity that they buy.

Regarding your second answer about the drop down boxes for quantity, thanks for that, however I would need to actually embed the drop down box inside the online store, so I think I might have to find some other type of work around ( and have to a degree by putting a form on my site where customers can just write me a shopping list :-) )

Thanks for your help

Hi John

I was reffering to the paypal pop up that Kershnee has described just before your post. As I said to both her and Sanja I think I'm just being over fussy, this is a new business venture and the site is to work along side my physical business, I just want every thing to be perfect.....maybe in a perfect world eh?

Thanks for the help

Hello Kenny

Unfortunately, I don't believe there is a way to address the issue of being taken to the PayPal store each time you add a product to your cart. I wish I had better news for you. I, too, am a perfectionist :)

Kenny, if you look at this Paypal help page, https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?&c..., you'll see this:

Sample HTML Code for Add to Cart Buttons that Open the Shopping Cart in the Merchant Window

By default, when buyers click Add to Cart buttons, the PayPal Shopping Cart opens in a separate browser window.

Hi again guys

firstly thanks for all your excellent help so far!

Now unfortunately I have even more issuses with the online store....

1. when I follow the advice from Kershnee about making my own buttons on the paypal site. Making the buttons is simplicity itself, however incorperating them in a simple way does not seem so simple as the code cannot be pasted into the shop widget. Pasting it anywhere else on the same page means that the maths does not get done in the paypal cart. I made this page as an example http://sitebuilder.yola.com/sites/Dec...

2.The page is also useful to explain my second problem, which is the positioning of the new drop down button...... just looks so bad (although this may not be important if problem 1 cannot be solved)

3. I'm fairly sure that the HTML generated from the new paypal button can be intergrated into the Online store widget manually by right clicking in the widget and selecting view source, but where exactly would I place the paypal button code?

Phew that's it! I hope someone out there can understand what I'm talking about and point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance

Hi, Kenny,

Your cart works for me as far as the math--viewing the cart from either button on the page gave the correct quantity and total.

Using the generated HTML would require using an HTML widget or Text Widget. View source is just that--you can view but not effect any changes. My suggestion would be to use the Text widget where you can type in the name of the item, insert a picture of the item, and add the Paypal HTML ( by clicking on the blue HTML button to the far right of the editing line in the Text widget. You can also use the Column Divider to make columns of products. I hope this helps!

Hi diane
thanks for youe e-mail (took it an astonishing 22 hours to reach me!)

I do think however thought that you misunderstood, the problem with the math was to do with adding a drop down box so that my customers can choose quantity. Because the drop down box cannot be incorperated into the same widget as the paypal store it does not relate to it and so cannot alter the total. I'm not sure that there is any easy way to do this and so sadly I have admitted defeat and explained to my customers to alter quantites in the paypal pop up.....not really a satisfactory solution but it will have to do for now.

Although the paypal is a great and welcome addition I think it needed maybe a little more thought and work before it was added. I think my next problem will be working out how to add what would normally be P&P or in my case a delivery charge, I will have a look around and see if anyone else has had this problem and how they solved it.

Thanks again for your email.

Hi, Kenny,

I'm sorry I misunderstood. You're right I didn't check it with the options. With all of the options and shipping charges you want to do, your best bet is to create custom buttons in Paypal itself. Here is the link for setting these up in Paypal (which I think may be the same link Margie gave you): https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?&c...
There is a lot of information at that link, but you can do product options and shipping charges this way. Also, you can set up your sales tax and shipping charges by going to My Account >> Profile>> More Options >> Selling Preferences
There is a whole list of different preferences you can set up. I hope this helps in getting your store set up!
