I was only intending to sell video downloads. I’m using eMember to protect pages so only customers who purchased access (membership) to those pages can access the download buttons. I have the redirect from paypal set up to provide registration instructions for accessing downloads. I do not want to use the eStore email reply — the paypal receipt is sufficient.
But now I have a new opportunity and need to sell “tickets” to live instructional webinars. The page that the paypal post-payment redirect went to for the downloadable videos to doesn’t make any sense to a webinar customer. Is there a way that I can set up a * custom* post-payment redirect page in each of the product settings? I couldn’t find anything in the product setup — or maybe I just not seeing it.
I believe the redirect url I’m using now is in the shopping cart checkout button, but for now I think it would be okay to use a buy-now button only for the webinars and bypass the cart. But I may not want to do that anymore once my inventory increases.June 9, 2015 at 11:08 pm #70392adminKeymaster
Yes, you can do that with a buy now button. Edit the webinar product and specify your specific thank you page URL for this product in the “Return URL” field.June 17, 2015 at 12:19 am #70393

Well, I was hoping I could also offer coupon codes for the webinar, but the only alternative seems to be the “text link” add on which, it appears, will take customers to the shopping cart which I’m thinking will put me back where I started with the thank you page I wanted to avoid for webinars. It seems I may have to turn my thank-you page into a dispatch page: “Thank you for your order. If you purchased a video, click here for download info. If you purchased a webinar, click here for registrations info. If you purchased a etc…”
I’m hoping you will soon have a buy-now button available that allows a coupon code.June 22, 2015 at 11:49 pm #70395adminKeymaster
What I explained with the buy now button with will for shopping cart checkout also as long as the the cart has ONE item during the checkout. So basically, a cart with one item in it will act like a buy now button after the checkout.
If there is more than one item in the cart at the time of checkout, then it won’t be able to redirect to multiple pages after the payment.July 4, 2015 at 4:30 am #70396
So subscriptions CAN be paid through the cart along with other products — all at once — it’s just that I can’t have a specific Thank You or redirect page for subscriptions in the cart. Is that correct? If so…
Since I will have different types of products and I don’t want to inconvenience customers who may want to pay for everything in a single transaction by forcing them to do multiple checkouts, I will look into creating a generic Thank You page for the shopping cart that has links for the customer to click for the info that applies to their product(s).July 4, 2015 at 2:10 pm #70397wzpModerator

No, they can not be added to a cart.
There are 2 kinds of products:
- Products that have a one-time, single payment price.
- Products that have a multiple, recurring price; in which a fixed price is charged, multiple times, for a term of days/weeks/months/years.
There are 4 kinds of buttons:
- Download Now — Single priced products are immediately downloaded, for free.
- Add to Cart — Single priced products are added to a cart, and paid for all at once.
- Buy Now — Single priced products are immediately paid for.
- Products sold with “Buy Now” buttons are indistinguishable from “Add to Cart” products, except for the immediacy of payment.
- Subscribe — Recurring priced products cannot be added to a cart, because they are treated differently by the payment processor (PayPal, et al).
Products used with “Add to Cart” and “Buy Now” buttons must have single (non-recurring) prices. Products involving more than one (recurring) payment, cannot use “Add to Cart” or “Buy Now” buttons.July 4, 2015 at 5:01 pm #70398
Okay, got it. Thank you.
