Problem:1 — i want to show multiple images of a product. I can show a single product image thumbnail using “additional product details” but i am sure how to add multiple image thumbnails.
Problem:2 — How i should show a search bar on my shop page, where user can search for the products across the categories and display them on the page.
Problem:3 — I have digital content to sell. I have the option to sell it any quantity but i want to add an option in this. Option will be — buyer can provide multiple emails(same or less number of emails than no of products bought) and i can send the link to those email for downloading /viewing the content.July 23, 2010 at 9:04 am #22658
You can’t specify multiple images in the product details section as the thumbnail can only show one image. The way I recommend people to set it up is that you create a WordPress post or page for this product. This page contains the detailed description of this product, you can place as many images as you like on this page. You can also place a buy button on this page using eStore.
When you create the product in eStore simply enter the URL of this post or page in the “Product Page URL” field. Now where ever you display this product using a fancy display option the product name will link to the detailed description page where the customer can find the full details of the product. Since this is a WordPress post or page you have greater freedom of designing your product description page the way you want it.
As an example you can what I have done on my site’s products page (you can click on any of the product and it will take you to the details page of that product):
See, how this option gives your more flexibility to design your shop?
eStore doesn’t have a search page but this is a good idea and I wouldn’t mind adding it to the plugin. Do you have an example site for me so I can see what you are after?
It is not possible to enter multiple email address. eStore was designed to use an one click checkout where the customer only has to click to checkout (no option of filling out forms to stop customers from abandoning the cart). You can read more on the eStore’s checkout philosophy here:
If you need the customer to fill out details then you will have to look for a shopping cart that presents the customer will pages of forms to fill out before they can hit checkout.July 23, 2010 at 12:54 pm #22659
Thanks for your suggestion. For search box — i dont have as such of a example site but i can send you a sample screen image what i want to achieve.
For the last one, i guess i send a wrong message. What i want is like this–
I have a digital content for subscription/download. An organization wants to buy this subscription/download for their employees, so a manager from the company buys it for 100 employees from my site. Now is there a way he can send the subscription/download link to 100 employees OR just by providing the 100 emails, estore can automatically sends email to those addresses.July 24, 2010 at 1:55 am #22660
Yep provide a link for the image so I can take a look.
Nope there is no way to send the email to 100 employees. The manager will have to purchase it then send an email to his employees.July 24, 2010 at 12:17 pm #22661
I have sent you a mail.July 25, 2010 at 3:01 am #22662
Thanks, I will take a look and prepare to add this feature.June 1, 2011 at 12:03 am #22663
There is a field called “Additional Product Images” under the additional product description section where you can specify additional images of your products and it will show up in the lightbox.
