First of all, I’m redesigning my site and offering at least one new product right from the home page: [http://fiddlerstudios.com] You’ll notice if you click the “Start Now” button it just reloads the page, instead of sending the user to the Paypal payment page. Any ideas why? It’s setup as a pay per view item, as they just need to fill in a form and we manually do the inspection.
Also, I’m wondering where they get the opportunity to enter the promo-code. We want to offer this free to a select group, and it would be nice if I could put the promo-code field right by the button. So if they enter the code that makes it free, it just directs them to the PPV link, rather than going through Paypal. I’m going to be needing this same kind of solution on another site, so please explain how it works and if it’s possible to do it like this?November 16, 2011 at 1:26 am #38542PeterMember
Have you had a chance to look at the documentation?
You haven’t added a shopping cart shortcode anywhere on your site. Checking the video tutorials first is a good place to start:
Pay Per View info can be found here:
Using coupon codes can be found here:November 16, 2011 at 5:33 pm #38543
I’ve been using this plugin for a while, but for limited applications. I went through the links you provided, and figured some of it out. Thank you. However, I still have some questions:
1) Is it possible to do a PPV item as a Buy Now button?
2) Is it possible to do a promo code on a Buy Now button?
3) If the promo code makes the price $0.00, shouldn’t it just bypass Payapal?
4) Is there any way for me to hide the entire cart (CSS perhaps?) except the coupon code box? This is just a one-item purchase, I don’t want them shopping around or anything, just to get this one thing.
5) Can the “check out with Paypal” button be changed?November 16, 2011 at 6:28 pm #38544
Followup: I think I figured out most of this. However, if the code makes the price $0.00 Paypal will not process it. It gives the error: “Please enter an amount greater than zero.” So it does need to bypass Paypal, as I suggested.November 16, 2011 at 11:23 pm #38545
Payment Gateways do not process $0.00 amount. You can use manual checkout for $0.00 amount. Check the “Redirect to Manual Checkout For Zero Amount Purchase” checkbox from the payment gateway settings and eStore will redirect the customer to manual checkout when it detects a $0.00 checkout. Go through the manual gateway settings and check the options that you need.November 17, 2011 at 12:09 am #38546
Okay. Thank you.November 17, 2011 at 1:17 am #38547
Okay, just one more question: is there some way to make the “Collect Customer Input” required?
If I can require them to enter their website URL, then I don’t need to direct them back to the PPV page, as I’ll have all the info I need from either their Papal (paying customers) or the manual payment form ($0.00 purchase).
Also, is there a way to change the “Check out with Paypal” button image? Other than just replacing the image in the plugin folder?November 17, 2011 at 11:10 am #38548PeterMember
In answer to your questions:
1) “is there some way to make the “Collect Customer Input” required?”
Yes you can – by applying some tweaks. Please see this post:
2) “is there a way to change the “Check out with Paypal” button image?”
I’m assuming you’re referring to the manual checkout button is that right?
If so then yes you’ll have to replace the image in the plugin’s image directory.November 17, 2011 at 5:46 pm #38549
Thank you. However, I tired that patch for the eStore_read_form.js file you linked to, and it doesn’t seem to have worked. There’s no warning, and it doesn’t stop me from placing an order if nothing is entered in that field, it just moves on to Paypal (paying customer) or goes to the manual checkout form ($0.00 purchase). Have I done something wrong?November 17, 2011 at 9:44 pm #38550
Yes, that’s the file. I wonder why it didn’t update…. I’ll see what I can figure out.November 17, 2011 at 11:21 pm #38552
To start checking it out, I just clicked the link you gave, and it shows the updates to me. Including where I reworded it to say “Enter your website URL”. So it appears it updated….
So I just checked my home page, and it appears to now be work as it should! Cool thanks for the help.November 18, 2011 at 12:43 am #38553
It was most likely being cached… now that you are seeing the updated file it is working as expected.
