Hello — I’ve looked through a few posts on the topic of buttons. It looks like there are three basic out-of-the-box options here as well as the ability to upload and use one’s own custom button.
My question — is it possible to have no button with certain products?
I’m going to be using paypal for a number of lower priced items on my site but I also have a few items that are much more expensive and I prefer to have customers pay with a good old fashioned check so that paypal doesn’t take such a huge chunk of the revenue…
Any ideas?September 20, 2010 at 12:15 am #24549
WP eStore -> Settings -> Payment Gateway Settings -> Use Multiple Payment Gateways -> Checked.
WP eStore -> Settings -> Payment Gateway Settings -> Manual Checkout Settings -> Use Manual Payment Option -> Checked.
Fill in the appropriate Manual Payment Option settings.
This will allow shoppers to pay you manually. But I’m not sure if you can only allow manual or PayPal checkout on a per product basis.
Amin or Ivy would have to answer that…September 20, 2010 at 12:23 am #24550
But you know, on a $100 purchase, the PayPal cut is only $3.20, (2.9% plus $0.30) which is fair; considering all the merchant protections you get.September 20, 2010 at 2:19 am #24551amin007Participant
There is no option to force “Manual checkout” on a product (the customer can have multiple products in the cart)
You can instruct your customers to use the “Manual option” if the cart amount is more than XX.
I agree with wzp. Even though you are paying paypal some money it’s totally worth it considering all the fraud hassles that you will have to go through when you manually accept checks.September 20, 2010 at 12:26 pm #24552
Yes paypal is good for items that are $100, I agree, but not so much when they are several thousand. We’re selling several limited high-quality goods, so it really doesn’t make much sense for those.
So I’m guessing this isn’t likely to be doable then, that I can somehow keep the “add to cart” button off of those particular goods?

Instead of disabling the add to cart button, why not try this?
WP eStore -> Add/Edit Products -> Your Product -> Button Link
Fill in the URL of a “special order” page. On the special order page, explain that, because it is a special order (high value) item, you want to ensure the customer receives your undivided personal attention during the purchase experience. Then, invite them to complete and submit a contact form.
When the customer clicks the add to cart button, they will be taken to the special order page for that product.September 20, 2010 at 2:08 pm #24554
Hey thanks — I’ll give it a try later tonight when I have a bit more time and see how it goes. Good tip.
