[Pro] Mal's

Help! I am a life long graphic designer who started website design with Freeway just 26 months ago. I have completed about 34 sites and have another 4 in the queue. I love it! BUT now I have 4 previous clients who want anything from a shopping basket to a donate button. I’ve read the Freeway manual and since it looks nothing like Mals site it is impossible to follow. I have a registered free version to Mal’s software, and he has told me that’s where I should start, despite telling him I thought I should go Premium. I have a PayPal account. But frankly that’s about as far as I can get, none of it makes sense, everything is different to the tutorials. I need serious help. I am willing to phone anyone who can help me, my cost, to get my head facing forward! PLEASE!

It does seem a bit complicated at first, but once you wrap your head
around it, it is very straight forward. Congrats on creating 34 sites!

Once you have registered with Mal’s (for the site client), then you
need to place the information into the "E-Shop Settings in the root
folder.
Click on the very top file in the site, shown below the master pages
in the left column.
From the menu bar, select Window > Actions if not already open.
Click the + sign at the bottom
Select “E-Shop Settings” action
Fill in the boxes with the Mal’s information for that site.

Now, on any page within the site, select from the menu bar: Insert >
Action Item > E buy text.
A box will appear, which you can move, resize, and style with the
information on the product, usually near the picture of the item. If
you need more variety, you can purchase Mal’s E-Commerce Suite here: http://www.freewayactions.com/product.php?id=016

Important to note is that your client must have their own method of
processing credit cards. When an order comes in, they will be
notified. They will access their private Mal’s cart and retrieve the
credit card info so they can process it on their equipment. If the do
not have this, then PayPal is the best way to go. PayPal also has a
set up for donations.

For PayPal, you would set up the account for the customer, or have
them do it. PayPal has graphics you can use, and Mal’s will redirect
the payment to them, if you have the cart set up that way.

Also note: each client must have their own Mal’s account.

Hey Vicki

Thanks for that. It is the ‘wrap your head around it’ bit that has been dragging me down. I had a really kind offer from another responder who has certainly helped me fix all the problems in 10 minutes!

I really do need to understand how to set it up myself anytime for anyone in anyway.

Freeway is really good, I enjoy doing sites so much now I cannot stop.

I will go through the things you said properly this week, now my emergencies are over. I’ll come back to you again.

cmr-group.co.uk is my main business site, go have a poke around - I have PayPal on it you know!!!

Thanks Vicki.
