I have both eStore and eMember installed on a demo site. I am using the following tut = http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/wordpress-estore-and-nextgen-gallery-integration-create-photo-shop-1200/
I have added a sample gallery via Next Gen Gallery plugin, copied over the eStore template over to the Next Gen plugin folder.
Next I have entered in the additional information for each image; See screenshot.
I have then created a page, added the shortcode to display the gallery and it displays nicely.
When I go and click “Add to Cart” all I get is a change in quantity. No product id, price nothing.
I’m sure it is a pretty basic mistake but one that has got me stuck none the less.
Hope someone might be able to help.

The buttons don’t seem to have any values in it which is why it doesn’t show anything when you add it to the cart. This normally happens if you have placed a shortcode for a product that you haven’t configured/added in your products database.
Can you please verify that the product IDs that you have used in the shortcode have a matching product in your products database? Simply look in your “Manage Products” menu and see if the product IDs match.
Also, can you please do a simple test for me? Configure a basic product and use the following shortcode on a test page or post and let me know how the button behaves:
1 is the product ID here so change it to whatever your product ID is.May 27, 2010 at 1:07 pm #20984mikeinspainMember
Thanks for the reply.
It appears that I had deleted 2 test products, so I did as suggested and quickly added a product and placed it above the gallery on this page. http://mikeyoung.co.uk/storedemo/clients/wedding/
The button worked lovely although it did display any images.
So do we have to use the eStore admin section to manually enter in product/image that we wish to sell?
We require the “Add to Cart” option but hoped that we could use Nex Gen Gallery to better organise the products and also to reduce the time spent entering in duplicate information as we like the images being displayed like a gallery.
Open to all and any suggestions

There are two ways to integrate the NextGen Gallery plugin with WP eStore:
1) Full Integration (http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/wordpress-estore-and-nextgen-gallery-integration-create-photo-shop-1200)
2) Quick Integration (http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/nextgen-gallery-alternate-integration-method-805)
If you read the details on those pages it will explain the pros and cons of both of these methods. If you use the Quick Integration method then you cannot use “Add to Cart” type buttons because to use an “Add to Cart” button you need to have each product configured in the eStore plugin so it can recognize it in the cart.
