    Question shopping cart questions

    must I create all of my subpages before installing the shopping cart. I dont understand the shopping cart tutorials at all. how do I know it will be install where i want it. I have to say the shopping cart deal is the hardest to understand. And I wanted to use paypal "website payment standard" as my payment system, how do I put that in.

    Any help would be appreciated
    Thank you

    If you are using paypal standard version - you simply have to create the add to cart codes for all you products and add that to the page. You will need to do it as you build the page so you have the room for it.

    David, I apologize - I missed that you are building in oscommerce? If that's the case, you won't be adding the code the same way, but you'll be adding paypal as your processor to the site and using the oscommerce built in shopping cart. You'll have to follow the instructions for adding products to the oscommerce site, they will automatically have buy buttons - and you'll have to follow the oscommerce and paypal instructions for adding paypal as your processor.

    Your'e going to need an oscommerce user or their manual or their forum for that - they do have their own forum also - otherwise, hopefully someone here who's using it will see your post and help you.

    BTW, it doesn't hurt to have it on the home page - that is the page people see the most - and even while navigating the site, they will come on and off the home page.
