Creating a basic PayPal Shopping Cart
If you want to setup your own e-commerce store then PayPal is one of the easiest ways to add payment facilities to your website. It's quick and simple to sign up for a PayPal acoount, whether you're using it for personal or business purposes. Quick 'n Easy Web Builder makes it even easier to integrate PayPal payment option into your website. You can add 'Buy Now' one-click buttons, setup a donation link or even connect to PayPal's own shopping cart system.
This tutorial will show you how to create a basic webshop using the available PayPal shopping cart tools. When you use PayPal's free Shopping Cart on your website, your customers can purchase multiple items with a single payment, browse your entire selection, and view a consolidated list of all their items before purchasing.
The PayPal Shopping Cart is a low-cost way for you to accept credit card and bank account payments, and can be fully integrated with your website in a few easy steps. When a buyer clicks the "Add to Cart" button, a new window will appear listing the contents of the buyer's PayPal Shopping Cart, including the item just added. To make the purchase, the buyer clicks "Checkout" from this window.
First you will have to sign up for a PayPal account. Select either the Premier account if you want to sell under your own name or Business Account if you'd rather sell using a business name.

Once you have setup your PayPal account you can start building your online webshop.
There are two Shopping cart buttons:
• Add to cart Button
With the 'Add to cart' Button users can add one of more items to their shopping cart.
• View cart Button
The 'View Cart' button lets users check their cart whenever they'd like.
Let's start by adding an item we can sell. Insert a description of the item you want to sell and also include an image of the object.
Here's an example how you can setup your object:
Quick 'n Easy Web Builder
Quick 'n Easy Web Builder is a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get program used to create web pages.
Website publishing easier than ever before!
In the Details section you can enter the details of the item you wish to sell.
Enter a Item Name for the item. If you don't complete this field, your customer will be able to fill it in when they're taken to PayPal. But for tracking and shipping purposes, it's better if you do it yourself.
The Item ID is an unique number which enables you to track your sold items more easily. Your customers won't see this ID number, it'll just be sent to you along with your customer's transaction.
Also enter a price for the item and specify a currency for the price.
When the option Allow customers to edit quantity is enabled you can provide your buyers with the option to buy more than one of the item that you are offering. This will add a Quantity box to the order form.
In the Payment Pages section you can specify the URLs to which customers will be redirected once their payment has been completed.
Successful Payment URL is the destination URL to which you would like Paypal to send your customers once their payment has been successfully completed. This must be an absolute (full) URL!
Cancel Payment URL is the destination URL to which you would like Paypal to send your customers if they wish to cancel their payment.This must be an absolute (full) URL!
If you would like to add more items to sell, you can simply repeat the steps above.
To allow your customers to view the content of their shopping cart, you can insert the View Cart button. Click Insert->Extra->PayPal eCommerce and select 'View Cart' button type.
Congratulations you have just added a PayPal Shopping Cart to your website!
