A possible new client wants to do some hyper-simple e-commerce. Usually, I create custom sites, but WordPress has a lot of advantages, starting with easy set-up and maintenance, and this site will be so simple, it shouldn’t really require anything I can’t do with WP. But, I’ve never used the WP add ons for e-commerce. Let’s try a “buy now” button for one of my photos. I just took this one a few evenings ago, and it’s been getting lotsa “likes” on Facebook, so I’ll do a live test. If somebody actually orders this, I’ll ship it.
I’m offering this as a 12×16 canvas print gallery-wrapped on a stretcher frame, for $250.
Are the WP gods smiling on me today? I’ll click “publish” and check it in another browser.
Well, poo. That plugin requires more setup than I want to do, and it has more features than I need. For that particular client, anyway. They just need a few “buy now” buttons, and than plugin is a more complicated shopping cart.
Now I’ll try the Easy Paypal Payment or Donation Accept plugin from the same folks (tipsandtricks-hq.com)
Let’s see if I can get that one to work easily.
Well… making progress. How about this method with the same plugin?
Barfarooni. Let’s try another plugin.
