About shopping carts using paypal

  erkmatrix 11:02 29 Jun 2005

Does anyone know how I can get round this problem, I want to set up a paypal shopping cart to have customers choose art prints, currently I found out that with Paypals does have the option of adding extra drop down menus for people to make choices but you can't have a price change in the option of the drop down menu choice.

Find this a bit mad as most things would change in price if it was a different size. Anyone know a way round this instead of making seperate buttons as I want to offer three differnt sizes of prints and have the print done in 5 different formats, all the choices would alter the price.

I don't know how you can do it using PayPal's own buttons. You may find that you have to invest in some e-commerce software.

There are lots of shopping carts around that will bolt on to an existing site, varying in price from cheap (possibly even free) to very expensive. Do a search for "e-commerce" on Hotscripts:

"lots of shopping carts around that will bolt on to an existing site"

Hmm .. that isn't what I meant to say.... let me try that again

There are lots of shopping carts around, some of which are complete with catalogue and others that will bolt on to an existing site....

I've actually decided now to use the paypal email payments like on ebay and invoice customers, will save also on making up all the paypal buttons.

Thanks for the help anyway.
