Can anyone shed some light on this?
My goal is to have this wordpress page with the estore plug in selling mp3s
then put an iframe on my iweb website referencing my wordpress page.
then the person would just buy though the iframe and such.
Does this break the payment flow?June 27, 2010 at 5:31 am #22014amin007Participant
eStore has no issue with iFrame. However, PayPal doesn’t like iframe. The only problem you will have is when it goes to PayPal. PayPal does not like it when someone else shows the PayPal checkout page in an iframe (this is a security restriction from their side). One of the main reasons PayPal doesn’t like it is because people use this kind of technique to create some kind of a scheme.
One workaround would be to use a “Buy Now” type button and tweak eStore so that the button opens a new window when clicked and submits the payment data in the new window rather than using iframe.
Another option is to use eStore’s text link purchase feature. You can create a link for a “Buy Now” button that will allow the user to purchase via your *main site* in a new window. The following documentation will explain how to create text links for buy now button:April 29, 2012 at 12:03 am #22015Business CoachMember
We have a partner who has included our page on their site through use of iframes. What we’d like to do is when the user clicks on Subscribe, it opens a pop up window that takes them to the PayPal checkout. I’ve applied the solution explained here https://support.tipsandtricks-hq.com/forums/topic/open-paypal-link-in-new-window#post-3038 and that opens in a new browser window.
What we’d like is a pop up. How do we do this?
Thank you in advance.April 29, 2012 at 2:24 am #22016adminKeymaster
You can’t do a popup because PayPal won’t like it (there are security restrictions that kick in when you try to load PayPal’s site inside an iFrame or popup). PayPal likes to make sure that the browser’s address bar clearly shows PayPal’s domain name when someone is checking out via PayPal. When you use iframe the original site gets hidden.April 29, 2012 at 3:34 am #22017Business CoachMember
Darned but it makes sense. Thank you for the prompt response – really appreciate all the help T&T HQ provides.
