Create:Shopping Cart group

Part 9 of 10 in series Create Tab

Play VideoThe shopping cart group lets you integrate your site with PayPal, or with iHostStudio’s e-commerce system. To use PayPal, select a button you’d like to integrate with PayPal, and choose Add to Cart from the PayPal submenu. In the dialog box, enter the product name, the price, and optionally, the SKU number. Next, enter the same email address that you use to log in to PayPal. Enter the URL to your site, and choose your Success page and Cancel page. These pages are the pages on your site where PayPal will send the user after a successful or canceled purchase.

Optionally, you can enter ALT text which will display when a user mouses over the paypal button. If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can sign up for an account. For help signing up to paypal, choose PayPal help, for a video on how to sign up. Click OK and preview the page to test your new PayPal button.

If you’re thinking of hosting with iHostStudio, or already have an iHostStudio Business Account, you can take advantage of their full-featured e-commerce system. Choose iHostStudio from the Shopping Cart group to view iHost’s Shopping Cart sign-in page. Log in to your account at the top right, or, take a look at what their system offers. Choose Pricing, and then click Us vs. the Competition to see a detailed comparison of other prominent Shopping Cart providers. You’ll notice that the iHost Shopping Cart supports Electronic Products such as downloadable e-books, as well as gift certificates and other advanced features. For help using iHost’s shopping cart system, they have their own series of help videos. Choose Support at the top of the page, to explore their Help system.
