[wp_cart_button name=”Choose Format” var1=”Formats|Kindle|Other Tablets|PDF”]
This code is not working on my page. Customers need to choose what format they want from the drop down box but this code taken from instructions shows as regular text on the page. I’ve added the digital variations to the product and now I need to add to my page for customers to add to the shopping cart.
Please advise. I’m using Variations Addon 1.7 and extra shortcodes v.4.8.5 with estore v.7.0.9.
Thanks!June 20, 2014 at 3:52 pm #63827
I need to add to the last post that this is also a bundle product with an mp3 download as well.June 20, 2014 at 11:54 pm #63828
The shortcode you are using is wrong. Please watch the following video tutorials:
All the eStore plugin’s shortcodes are listed in the following page:
The following page has documentation on how to use variations:

Actually that’s YOUR code from this link http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/simple-wp-shopping-cart-installation-usage-290 towards the bottom on how to use type of variations. It appears those instructions in your documentation don’t work then.
I have set up the variations but I need to have a drop down box on a product page without the use of a fancy design. Customers have to choose either kindle, epub or .pdf version. Plus there is a free bonus of an mp3. Since this doesn’t work, can you help me with a work around? Right now I’ll have to use one of the fancy designs to get this drop down box and include the mp3 in a zip file. Not why I switched to this delivery system.
Thanks for your help!June 21, 2014 at 11:43 pm #63830
That is for the simple shopping cart plugin. There are two plugins here:
1) Simple WordPress Shopping Cart (free)
2) WP eStore (premium)
You are using the WP eStore plugin so the documentation for that is here:
The following documentation will teach you how to create a purchase button with variations (no fancy template):

or the following if you want an add to cart type button:

Let me know if that helps.June 23, 2014 at 12:59 am #63831
Thanks for getting back to me. I’ll give it a whirl. I’m using the premium plugin. I didn’t know there was a free one. LOL!
I do have another question somewhat related. I’m using style 5 because I want a details button to go to the full description page where customers can then order (as per my original question). I’d like to remove the button add to cart from that design. Right now I was able to play with the css to “hide” it but I’d rather remove. Where would I find the php file to do that?
Also the shopping cart appears at the bottom of the full products page causing me to take out the shopping cart in the sidebar widget where I’d rather it be. Where would I find that in the php to remove?
BTW – I do love your plugin as it can be really customized!June 23, 2014 at 7:53 am #63832
Its best to hide the button using some custom CSS than to manipulate the plugin’s code. Is there a particular reason you want to edit the PHP file?
There is no limit to how many places you can enter the shopping cart shortcode on your page. You can insert it (by using a shortcode) on the page and on the sidebar or just on the sidebar. There is no need to modify any code for this either.June 23, 2014 at 7:46 pm #63833
I wanted to make sure the add to cart button doesn’t show on that page. Can’t I remove the code for that?June 23, 2014 at 11:15 pm #63834
If you hide it using CSS, it won’t show. Yes you can modify the PHP code to remove that button but the reason I am requesting you do it via CSS is becuase when you upgrade, the PHP code changes will disappear and you will need to apply the PHP code tweak again.
