Offroad Design Concepts Adding a Product

Add to Paypal

  1. Login to paypal.com
  2. Follow these links: Merchant Services -> Add to Cart button
  3. Note: Although we are filling out a button form, we only want the generated code referring to the newly added product.

  4. Required fields are Item name and Price
  5. Next, press Create Button at the bottom, This will bring you to a page with the generated HTML
  6. Select the Email tab
  7. You should see something that looks like this:
    https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=56WMKYHLJT8DJ
    We only need to copy the last part:
    56WMKYHLJT8DJ
    This code is used as the product’s Paypal Id

Add to Database

  1. Go to the database control page
  2. Type in your password
  3. Select Edit Products
  4. In the Insert box, paste your recently copied code in to the Paypal Id field
  5. Now proceed to fill in its other attributes:

  6. Catergory Id must refer to an existing catergory
  7. Description must be at most 255 characters

  10. Click Insert

Note: Small Images are 186 x 186 pixels
Note: Large Images can be any size
