I tried to add a shopping cart to my site, and I couldn't get the buttons to go to my webpage.

I am trying to add a paypal shopping cart.

Could someone please help me with this.

Set up oscommerce then,You will need to setup a business account in Pay pal.Then go to your over view/ then to profile/then to / website payment preferences/ from there you can set up all your info and even customize it to the look of your site.

You need to use one our shopping carts, if you do not use one of our shopping carts, you are destined to conitue to add add edit paypal code to your static html pages for all eternity.

I prefer adding my buttons individually to the shopping cart method - I have more options to how my pages look.

However, there are good and bad about all - I also have learned through trial and error how to copy one button for all similar products, then just change a couple minor things in it. Takes me less time than setting up the products in another cart.

Like others have said, you have the ability to add lots of different options.
I'll stick with my buttons (even though they aren't with paypal) And no matter which one you choose, you still have to set up the options for the products. You should play in a couple different shopping carts and see if you like those options better. I built an entire store in Soho and trashed it because of limitations I had there. Went back to BV and my buttons :)
