    I am being asked from my Merchant Services Provider who does Wix use for a Shopping Cart? I can't find that answer.

      Hey  cassbutler,

       

      Currently, you can use PayPal, WebMoney, Skrill, or Authorize.Net with your Online Store shopping cart. After connecting your Online Store to your merchant account, all payments made by your buyers will appear in your merchant account. 
       
      To connect your merchant account to your store, click on Payment & Currency from Manage Store and choose a payment method from the drop-down menu. It is not possible to use a third party merchant. 
       
      For information about connecting your Online Store to PayPal, click here.
      For information about connecting your Online Store to WebMoney, click here.
      For information about connecting your Online Store to Skrill, click here.
      For information about connecting your Online Store to Authorize.Net, click here.
       
      If you would like to see other payment gateways in the Wix Online Store, feel free to add your request to our Wishlist by posting in this thread.

    Hi there, I had add the online shop with all his buttons etc. and one day the photos of the products in the shop are very small or you can see only 10% of the product. The text and the product info page works ok. the only problem is the presentation of the product photo in the first main page of the web shop.

    What can I change to fix the problem?

    Thank you in advance

    Georgios.

      Hi Claire, with the product gallery I do not have problem. It works fine. During the editor work and in public the images remains in the same size. The problem is in the online shop. By working with the editor the shop design is perfect. Images and text ate in normal size. Even if you check in "preview" the images are in normal size! At the time that I say "publish" and you check your online shop after that in public, the images are almost gone. By publishing the action squeeze the images and in the product window you have a huge section with the product text and the image is so small that you did not recognize it...

      Thanks, giorgos

      Ho Yotam, I took this page out from the website. I will put it again today so you can see it. Now I manage to have small size of image but I lost the text in the gallery...

      Can I not copy from a sample template a ready standard shop and put it on my site, just change images and text?

      thanks in advance

    Do I really need the unlimited bandwidth with the Unlimited package? Can I get the shopping cart feature as an add-on with the Unlimited package?

    For a higher price for the E-Commerce we only get 10GB of bandwidth...? How's that justified?

    How would this affect my users if say, for my case, the target customers are in Singapore? Is there an Asia, or even better yet, Singapore server?

    • Ilia Wix Team

      Replied by Ilia February 25, 2014

      Hi,

      Unfortunately we do not have an Asian server at the moment.

      Regarding the Bandwidth question - 10 gigs of bandwidth is more than enough for any site, whether eCommerce or not. The extra price tag is added because of the eCommerce feature that is unlockable only through this Plan.

      Unfortunately it's not possible to buy an Unlimited Plan+Shopping cart combo at the moment, and the only option is to upgrade to eCommerce.

       

      You can use the following coupons to receive a discount on the yearly Unlimited/eCommerce premium packages!

    How do you lnk everything together for the onlne shop?

    Hi

    I am really confused with this whole adding a cart thing and how it works. Basically I need to do the following:

    1. I want to see the little shopping cart at the top of my page that will show customers there basket.

    2. when  add things to basket I want the basket to add up, so it will say for example 3 items for £49.95.

    3. Also how do they go to checkout?

    I was told to create a 'cart page', i'm not sure if I did this the correct way. I basically went to add pages and named the page 'cart' was this correct or is there a different method? What is this page even for? How does everything link together?

    I have upgraded my account to eCommerce, and I have a premium Pay Pal account.  I want to set up an online store to receive variable amount contributions.  I cannot get Pay Pal and the web site to work together.  Very frustrating.

      Hi,

      Please provide us with a detailed outline of the steps you have taken until this point, so we may replicate the process from our end in finding a solution.
      -Where do you see it on your site, i.e. what page?
      -What component in the editor is causing the problem (i.e. text box)?

      *Please include screen shots, if possible.

      Thank you for your cooperation and we await your reply.

      There seem to be 2 ways to add an online contribution option.  One is by adding a Pay Pal button.  Pay Pal tells me to go into HTML edit mode and copy the code into the page on my web site.  But Wix tells me I can't actually edit the HTML code.  If I try to add the Pay Pal button from the Wix site, it asks me for my vender e-mail address, which I put in.  I hit save and the site processes forever, but does not link to Pay Pal.

      See attached screen shots.

      The other option is to create an online store.  But it doesn't seem to give me the option of just collecting contributions of various amounts determined by the donor.  It wants to sell products, when that is not the nature of the business I want to conduct.  So I can't seem to find the option to just collect contributions.

       

      To add more complexity, the contributions are political in nature.  So I need to add categories for the donor to list name, address, occupation, employer and to check a box that they are a citizen of the US.  That appears to be beyond what I can accomplish on this site.

      Should I just link to a different web site where I can collect contributions?

      Hi

       

      If you have taken the online package then you will need to set up your paypal account via the store manager check out how to by viewing out tutorial here.

       

      Now if you chose the PayPal button from the buttons list, this is not connected to the store and will just take your shoppers directly to the check out in paypal, not allowing them to purchase more then one item.

       

      The Buy Now button is a simple button that you can add to your site, to any product. This button is a simple instant purchase where once clicked on, it will take the user straight through to PayPal, this is a good option if you are selling items where the customer will only want to purchase one product.

      When using this option there is no charge by Wix, but you will need to check with PayPal with regards to their charges.

      Click here for instructions on adding a Buy Now button.

       

      If you are going to be selling a number of different items and collections and want to allow the customer to purchase more than one item, then you can choose the eCommerce package. This allows you to offer product options, discount vouchers and shipping rules and much more, for more information please click here.
       

      With the online store you can use an Add to Cart button to turn any object on your page into a product that a user may purchase! When a user clicks on the Add to Cart button, the product will be added to the user’s shopping cart.

      Remember to use the Add to Cart button, you must first add and set up a Shopping Cart and a Checkout button.
