If you watch this video, you’ll see a very successful internet marketer’s views on buy buttons – our litle buttons are rather dull grey – can you make them like this / Amazon’s buttons?

I know in estore settings there is the option to change the “add to cart” button.
Look for: “Add to Cart button text or Image”
To use a cusomized image as the button simply enter the URL of the image file. eg. http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-paypal-shopping-cart/images/buy_now_button.png
Not sure where to change it in the settings for “buy now” I bet you can change it in the code:
file name: eStore_misc_functions.php
$button_type .= '<input type="image" src="'.$button.'" class="eStore_buy_now_button" alt="Buy Now"/>';
'.$button.' to url of image perhaps?February 11, 2010 at 12:28 am #17891amin007Participant
Thanks gymgansta for you input.
Yes, you can customize any of your buttons as long as you have the image that you want to use for the button.
Upload this image to your server and copy the URL of the image (e.g. http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/images/my_buy_button.jpg)
Now edit the product that you want to customize the button for and specify the URL of the image in the “Button Image URL” field under the “Additional Product Details” section. Now where ever you place a “Buy Now”, “Add to Cart” or “Subscription” type button for this product it will use that image. Let me know if this makes sense.
This page also has a number of widely used button images:

Thanks, done. Belcher /Amazon like buttons adopted ! except for Subscrubing. Is it the same ? or do I just need to find nice orange buttons with blue writing saying subscribe somewhere on the internet ?

You can customize your subscription button images the same way (there should be some subscription button images in the “images” directory of the plugin that you can also use).October 8, 2010 at 3:23 pm #17894hdeutchMember
I added a .jpg file to images (Belcher button type) and linked it in Additional Product Details.
It appears on my product page … but it is much too big. How do I reduce the size of this image?October 8, 2010 at 6:34 pm #17895hdeutchMember
Please ignore the above post. I figured out how to do this … easy if you know how.October 8, 2010 at 10:21 pm #17896wzpModerator

Just in case someone does need to know how to re-size a gigantic image, there are a couple ways to do this.
You can re-size using you own graphics editor (I use xnview a lot (free)), you can use a cool little Firefox addon (Pixlr Grabber – also free), or you can do it the easiest way.
I know, I like easy too;-) When you are adding an image to a post or a page in WordPress, click the little box on the editor to “add an image,” locate the image on your hard-drive and click “upload.”
Once uploaded, the resulting screen has options way down at the bottom for some standard sizes:
Thumbnail (150 × 150)
Medium (300 × 185)
Large (640 × 395)
Full Size (2550 × 1575)
That should give you plenty of options as far as sizing for your page or post.
