how do I use the short code to change the text of the buy now button?
is there something like
[wp_eStore_buy_now_button id=7 text=”My Best button”]
?November 20, 2019 at 2:29 pm #80097
in addition,,, I’m using a “your price?” with a buy now button on a product. the problem is that even if the user selects 0 for the digital product he is still directed to PayPal, although the “Redirect to Manual Checkout For Zero Amount Purchase” is turned on in the settings
What could be the problem?November 20, 2019 at 10:52 pm #80098
The following post will be helpful:
YOu can also use the following feature that will allow you to make your own button or text:
Regarding the 0 amount issue. The shortcode you are using is for a PayPal buy now button. That feature doesn’t apply to buy now type buttons since it bypasses the cart. Use an add to cart type button for it.November 21, 2019 at 12:53 pm #80099
the first link is from 5 years ago and talks about changing it using an image, nothing new happened since then?
isn’t there a way to just add the text to the short code?
Same thing with the other one, why not check if the amount entered is 0, before passing the information to PayPal?
is the eStore plugin still in development?November 21, 2019 at 4:38 pm #80100wzpModerator
…why not check if the amount entered is 0, before passing the information to PayPal?
As stated by @admin: “That feature doesn’t apply to buy now type buttons since it bypasses the cart.” (The “Buy Now” button is similar to an Amazon “1 Click” button.)
is the eStore plugin still in development?
Of course it is. And you are always welcome to submit feature ideas to the official eStore features wishlist:
Or for “want it NOW” feature requests, you can also request a custom work order quote:November 21, 2019 at 6:44 pm #80101
tnx Admin, wzp, but this list is all done items,, you could potentially start a new list, since it’s hard to get involved when the list is so overwhelming with items that are already scratched out, tidying things up a bit might encourage people to participate.
I’ve added it to the comments, to somehow check if the number is 0 or think of a different way of handling 0 when it’s a user’s choice scenario.
also changing the text of a button using a shortcode, that’s something I saw requested in the forums three years ago, that’s why I asked if eStore is still in development
I’m assuming I’m not the first one to request a variable to change the text of a specific button To be added to the shortcode.
To sum up the answers for my questions (correct me if I’m wrong)
1.changing the text of a button can’t be done in a “your price” scenario sinceit can’t be replaced by an image, and direct link is not available when the your price option is turned on, is my summary correct?
2. when you allow a user to select his own price, selecting 0 is not a supported option. yes?November 22, 2019 at 5:22 am #80102
1) What happens with the button customization is that someone says: “I want to customize the text”. Then someone else says “I want to customize the color”, Someone else goes “I want to make it italic”. So on and so on. The image makes it to where you make it look exactly like the way you want to (with text, color, style etc) then the output is as you want it to look like.
All buttons can be replaced by an image. I would like to know why the button image replacement is not working for you. Did you specify a button image URL in the eStore product configuration?
2) Why is 0 a valid price in the context of selling something? If you are wanting to give something for free, you would use a plugin like the following to offer free downloads:
WP eStore also has shortcodes to create free download links that you can put on a page to allow free downloads.November 22, 2019 at 1:54 pm #80103
1) That’s Awesome!, that’s real feedback from your users
In this case for example I would do an area in the settings for each of the buttons CSS styling, Globally for example.
But that’s much different than a variable of a text item? what I don’t understand is why would you just, Give up if there are only 2 requirements. One Change the text, And the other change styling that’s it. Images are not a good solution since they lack the flexibility of the web but that’s beside the point, trying to understand your perspective of choosing an image as a solution, Since using an image is not a “best practice” or needed just to have a button.
2) that’s pretty easy, In recent years It became quite a common pattern to put on some items as a “name your price” option, Offering an option to “name your price” (by its name) implies that your price could be 0 Especially when it comes to Digital Products, images, music, or even software, The 0 Option is implied in the name and When you implement it you take into consideration that they could enter 0 As an option, this is how this pattern works on other sites.
And again it’s feedback about something that might be useful to some people and if I’m not mistaking it’s not the first time It was asked for, and I think one of the reasons is because they saw this pattern in other places and they know how it’s supposed to work.
eStore is a great plug-in, I’m pointing those things out because it’s part of my feedback as a user, if you are unsure you can always send a survey occasionally to your users, to see if you’re keeping up with times, my feeling is that it’s starting to fall behind.
Anyway, I’m trying to give you my perspective as best I can, positively as a user.
It doesn’t matter for my current needs, but you should take this into consideration because the web is not standing still and there is much to improve
(If you want to talk in more details, Feel free to PM me, and will talk)
I wish you both all the bestNovember 23, 2019 at 1:54 am #80104
I definitely want to add the button_text option for it. So that will get done.
The 0 option you can actually get already if you are using the add to cart button. This plugin’s main feature is the shopping cart so the “add to cart” type buttons are the default way of using it. The paypal buy now buttons has a form that submits directly to paypal.
