Is it possible to place an estore button on another website? We use to do it with paypal, where we would email someone the generated button code and they could but it on their website, so a specific product could bought on several website. Is this possible with estore?April 14, 2010 at 11:35 pm #19730amin007Participant
You won’t be able to use the Shortcode to place the button as eStore is not installed on that site but you can give them the generated HTML code for the “Buy Now” button and then they can place it on anywhere on the web.
This link will explain what to do:
Look up the following section on the above page:

Thanks that works perfect. I viewed the source code and searched for “buy now” and found the code really easily.March 7, 2013 at 4:53 pm #19732
Hey, I’ve been trying this with no success. I easily found the code for the button…copied it…pasted it into the sales page source code and visually everything looks correct but then the button doesn’t do anything.
Any thoughts?March 7, 2013 at 11:01 pm #19733wpCommerceModerator
@arosadio1219, Can I take a look at the page where you are using it?
Also, I think you will be able to do what you are after easily using this feature of eStore. Have you tried it?

Hi. The page is: [http://myworkathomesuccess.com/thanks-one/index.html]
I’m not great with html but I know enough and theoretically, this should have worked so I can’t find anything causing it NOT to work.
I wanted to try a button first because it looks better. Especially since I plan on doing this with two sales pages as well and I’d prefer there be an Order Now button then a link.
I thought this would be the easiest solution to using html sales pages that aren’t easily reconstructed in WP.

I actually was able to use the code from that link you showed me for an “Order Now” button and it worked like a charm. I tried the same thing for a download button and it didn’t work.
The button displays fine but when I click it, it brings me to my site’s homepage.
Below is the snippet I used…is it incorrect?
<a href="http://www.myworkathomesuccess.com/?wp_eStore_download_now=25"><img src="http://myworkathomesuccess.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/blue-circle-e1362671216489.png"/></a>
(The code is not showing properly even though I have it in backticks. The only part that shows when I post this is the image code. The part I used from the shortcode is invisible for some reason. I basically used the exact code from that post you sent me and changed the word “buy” to “download” and that’s it.)March 8, 2013 at 10:19 pm #19736wpCommerceModerator
Hi, I fixed the code you shared. However, there is no call to action named “wp_eStore_download_now”. That’s why it’s not working.March 8, 2013 at 11:40 pm #19737
aha! that explains it…duh. I’ll look at the shortcodes again. I need a download CTA. Thanks!
