PayPal Multiple Price

Post by zinc » Sat Feb 22, 2014 9:20 am

Pablo

I have setup a button on the PayPal account for a ticket that can be sold as £15.00 or concession £12.00 so I have left it so the user can select the type based on PayPal's own instruction, on WWB I have added a buy now button but how do I link it so the user can select a ticket type before purchasing. I have tried a combobox but that is ideal for size which does not apply here.

I'm not absolutely sure whether I have fully understood what you are trying to do, but if it is like the alternative prices shown on this page:

http://www.johnsmithbusker.co.uk/ordering.html

then the following is the HTML for one of the items:

<form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="XXXXXXXXXXXXX"> (XXXXXXX would be your own code)
<table>
<tr>
<td>
<p align="center"><input type="hidden" name="on0" value="Destination">Destination</p>
</td>
<td><select name="os0">
<option value="UK">UK £59.00</option>
<option value="Europe">Europe £61.00</option>
<option value="Rest of World">Rest of World £64.00</option>
</select> </td>
</tr>
</table>
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="GBP">
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_GB/i/btn/btn_cart_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online.">
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_GB/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
</form>

It is some time since I created this, so it may be crude - but it does seem to be effective.

Hopefully it may be of some help - if not, just ignore it! :roll:

Don;
Not quite what I had in mind, but I thank you for the suggestion, it is not actually bad.

What I have done in a similar situation is to just offer two tickets for sale; one priced at 12 and the other priced at 15. I couldn't find a way for the buyer to select the price after they entered PayPal.
Hope this helps.

Can this be done though WWB visually or do I have to embed this code?

You can do this visually by creating a standard form. The PayPal buttons only provide 'fixed' functionality.
