[Express] Integrating Paypal Buttons with more Utility

Hi there

I have a question about how I can incorporate the PayPal buttons that Freeway allows you to add to have some more utility for my site’s purpose… I have a photo site that I use to put up my pictures and am thinking about building it into being a side business but would need to make my site more friendly for someone shopping for a photo. That’s down the road, but for now I’m just trying to work with what I have.

I added the PP buttons and for now all I could find to do was add a Add to Cart and View Cart to each page that I would consider photos to be selling and when you do that the description is just a header for that page… Example “Landscape Photo”… How would I be able to have the end user specify which picture they want? Are there more advanced PP buttons? Is there a place where they could say “I want picture XYZ”… I would know its from the Landscape page because of where they clicked add to cart.

Thanks for any tips

Hi Mike,
Unfortunately your options are going to be somewhat limited simply because you are using Freeway Express which has access to a limited subset of the Actions available to Pro. Normally I’d recommend looking at setting up a free Mals shopping cart (http://www.mals-e.com) using the Actions built into Freeway Pro as they offer various options to allow users to choose the products they want and add them to their cart. However since you are using Express as well as Showcase to display your images it makes sense to keep your galleries where they are and simply extend Showcase’s functionality to add in the Paypal buttons dynamically.

I’ll send you an example off list of your site with a modified Showcase gallery with an embedded Paypal button.
Regards,
Tim.

Honestly, didn’t even know there was a Freeway 7… You would think they would do a better job at making that known to those who bought any version of 6, haha… With that said, I updated last night for $75 and when I have a couple of hours I will begin to see what I can change around using pro… I’m excited to have it because I know it’s more powerful. I also bought Exhibeo.

Does anyone know if Showcase galleries are easy to bring into Exhibeo, or is it a simple drag and drop operation like it was with Showcase?

Thanks,

Thanks David… I have never heard of it but after looking at the site it definitely sounds like it could be good for me. Thanks again.
