(Pro & Premium Only)
In Xara Web Designer Premium and Designer Pro you can use our set of e-commerce widgets to add your own online store to your website, or to provide access to popular online shopping sites such as eBay. We're going to show you how to do this using PayPal, Google Store Gadget, Ecwid, eBay To Go, and Wazala.
Using PayPal buttons you can let your customers buy one item at a time by simply adding a Buy Now button on your website, or you can allow multiple items with an Add To Cart button. The credit cards are processed by PayPal, you just have to deliver the goods!
Ecwid and Wazala are both part of an exciting new breed of shopping cart. Using these widgets, you can easily build an online store quickly and easily, with no programming knowledge required.
eBay widgets give you up-to-the-minute detailed information on any eBay items for sale, from an individual product to the online stock of an entire eBay store.
Find the e-commerce widgets in the Page Elements & Widgets section of the Designs Gallery.
(DesignerPro/Web Designer MX Premium only) Ecwid provides all you need for a one-stop online shop, including a built-in 'drag and drop' shopping cart, the recording of customer registration details, destination zone and shipping configuration, automatic tax adjustments for purchases from defined zones, and payment processing.
Before dragging the Ecwid Product Browser on to your web document page, first you have to register and create an account at Ecwid (http://www.ecwid.com/getting-started.html).
After registration, Ecwid sends you a verification email informing you of your unique store ID. You need this to log in and generate your store code. When you first log in, Ecwid displays your store’s dashboard (used to manage your store), already populated with a dummy shop, customers and products.
We recommend that you do not copy any of the code in the Dashboard yet. Instead if you configure some system settings and add products, product categories and customers first, you can generate new widget code to insert directly into Designer Pro/Web Designer MX Premium. This new code will allow you to resize your Ecwid widget once it’s on your web page.
We recommend you configure the following system settings first, as some values that you specify during configuration will be required when adding products and categories.
A PayPal View Cart button allows your customers to see exactly what they've put in their shopping cart for multiple purchases, including associated costs such as shipping and tax.
Ensure that the website you are adding the View Cart button to already has at least one PayPal Add To Cart button.
