This Webshop is AWESOME.

I am now reading through the Webshop_Plus_v3_Manual.pdf file.

I'm wondering if anyone has any insight for me, as I have

- downloaded Webshop Plus! .zip file onto my computer
- logged on to my root folder on FTP, and moved the entire "cart" folder from my harddrive onto my root.
- logged onto my domain, which was <mydomain.com>/cart/admin
- I've now logged in, and have filled out the "Admin Details" tab

But before I move forward with all of the set-up and customization that I need to do and everything, here are the two reasons I wanted to post what I'm doing right now:

1) - I want to make sure that it sounds like I have done everything correctly up until now.

2) - I have to make sure this Webshop solution can do this *one* thing I'm trying to do: I'm trying to see if I can make it to where the customer can set the price they want to pay, and then paypal will let them pay that price that the customer sets, each time the customer purchases a product. I just want to make sure that I can configure this webshop to do this, before I continue anymore on installing it. This is what is the whole purpose of my web-store--I just need it to sell a gift card. That's *literally* the only thing I need to sell on it. So that's literally one product. I just need users to be able to enter in the price they want for the gift-card, though, and then PayPal charge them for that amount.

You can do it simply removing, from the "product form" the hidden field named "price" and adding, instead, in the form, a field named "price" so the users can fill in the amount they like.

However, seems so complicated using a Webshop when you can do the same thing using a simple PayPal "Buy now" or "Pay now" button.

But...the "Buy Now" and "Pay Now" make you chooes concrete, static price amounts, don't they..? Because I thought I looked into that--you can't really leave it open for the user to type in a specific amount and have them pay, can you?

You can

1. Use a Buy Now button, leaving the price blank. The user will be asked to fill in the amount, in PayPal's site. In this case add a line of text informing the users of this.

or

2. Recreate the PayPal button. The PayPal button is nothing more than a form with hidden fields. So have a look at the code, and recreate a standard WWB form.

Add the necessary action, hidden fields etc as per original PayPal button code.

Add, in this form, an editbox named "amount" and REMOVE from this form the hidden field also named amount. So the user fills in the amount and he clicks to get redirected to PayPal for the payment.

As far the first option you mentioned: Leave the "Price" blank--THAtT'S IT!? Hahahaha, I'm so limited it's funny sometimes--why didn't I think of that..? I always make things more complicated than they are.

As far as the second option you mentioned, is the bigger advantage to that, that the user can type in on the page how much they want to donate, before having to do it form PayPal's site? Ok, so I'm looking at code, for example, for a "Donations" button I have on a site, and it's

Code: Select all

<form target="PayPal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" style="margin:0;padding:0;">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="lenhamw@aol.com">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_donations">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
<input type="hidden" name="return" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="cancel_return" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="receiver_email" value="[b]<e-mail address here>[/b]">
<input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="0">
<input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="1">
<div id="PayPal1" style="position:absolute;left:537px;top:479px;width:67px;height:37px;z-index:21">
<input type="image" name="submit" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/x-click-but04.gif" style="position:absolute;left:0px;top:0px;" alt="Make payments with PayPal, it's fast, free, and secure!">
</div>
</form>
Now I pretty much see how I would craft all that; I think, except:

- is "form target" just the name of the form?
- does the "action = https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr " mean I would just paste https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr into the "Action" blank, in the "Form properties", form within WB?
- now all the "input type=hidden" ones are hidden fields, I also do from "Form properties" >> "Hidden fields" tab, correct?
- I know that I can ignore "div id" and "style" because those are just IDs I give it, and its position on the page, correct?
- how would I do the <input type="image" name="submit" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/x-click-but04.gif" style="position:absolute;left:0px;top:0px;" alt="Make payments with PayPal, it's fast, free, and secure!"> part?

Create a PayPal buy now button using WWB's standard tool.
Set its properties just as you want them (email, etc)
Right click it, select HTML

Copy the button code in Notepad

Now add a form in your page. Add a editbox and name it "amount"

Double click the form and set its properties as follows:

Action: what you see in the code you have in Notepad.
Target: Paypal
Encoding type: leave blank
Method= POST

Now, add in this form, the SAME (EXACTLY) hidden fields that you see in the original button code, EXEPT for the "amount"

You can add a simple Submit button, or copy one of the many PayPal Buy Now button images you can find on the net. If you choose this last option, insert in your form an "image button" that will work as "Submit" button.

Hi,

I'm afraid that I have no such script (extension) !

Probably you have used such an extension by some other forrum member. Please verify and address your questions in the proper thread.

Navaldesign,

Thanks a lot for taking the time to write that out for me, man! I think I did it right, check me out here:

Scroll down and take a look where the user types in the value and let me know if that looks right!

AGHHH! This is so cool, man!

Yes, it lloks right and behaves so. Maybe you need to make the amount editbox font size a bit smaller ?

Ok great; thanks Navaldesign.

The cart pages contain code. So you should go the other way round: use the demo project pages, adapting them (visually) to your own site theme.

Alternativelly, you can copy / paste the forms (but some elements, like the cart page buttons need to be checked, as they might loose their names when pasting) and ALSO copy / paste the code in Page HTML (in Start of Page and End of Page, also in Between <head> ...</head>) in the exact same position of your own pages.

Has the Protected Download been added yet? If not do you plan on adding it or do you still offer it as a paid product?
