My Fav Simple eCommerce setup




While you can just add a paypal button, why not add a little polish to it.   I found this plugin when I was looking for a easy plugin that could be updated quickly by my client.

You have the choice to be as simple or as complex as you like.

Let’s get started!

Prerequisite: Your own Paypal account.

Step 1. Install and Activate WordPress Simple Paypal Shopping cart.

Step 2. Configure the plugin with your paypal info



When done, Update options.  Most options can be left at a bare minimum for the first time user.

WP Shopping Cart Usage

Step 1: To add the ‘Add to Cart’ button simply insert the following shortcode to a post or page next to the product description:

[wp_cart_button name="PRODUCT-NAME" price="PRODUCT-PRICE"]

Replace PRODUCT-NAME and PRODUCT-PRICE with the actual name and price.

Here is an example usage of the shortcode:

[wp_cart_button name="Test Product" price="19.95"]

Step 2: To add the shopping cart to a post or page, insert the following shortcode to a post or page.

This gives you a simply button like this
Or you can get fancy and add a great display box with picture
[wp_cart_display_product name=”Flower Print” price=”35.00″ thumbnail=”http://www.yourname.wp-clique.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/1e745ce0357211e1a87612313804ec91_7.jpg” description=”This is a short description of the product”]
