How do I use HTML Egg to launch a web store?
HTML Egg can help you create a web shop to sell products online. And you can manage it all right on your iPhone or iPad!
To accept payment online, you will be able to easily add Paypal Buy Now buttons to your products. All you need is a Paypal account.
Please check out http://youtu.be/pnB-j1pWIu4 for a video demo with step by step instructions on adding a Paypal Buy Now button (video also embedded below on this page)
*** Having trouble copying code from Paypal's website?
This appears to be an issue with Paypal's website when users are copying from an iOS web browser. Please copy the source code from a Desktop browser and then send the code to the iOS device to be added into the App.
If you are selling a number of different products, you may wish to create a shopping cart with "Add to cart" buttons next to each product, as well as a "View Cart" link that leads the customer to check out.
Implementing a shopping cart is different than adding a buy now button but is also fairly straight forward.
You will need to log into your account at Paypal.com in order to generate the HTML code. Copy the code from the Paypal website and paste it into HTML Snippets in your web page.
You will need the following buttons:
Add to Cart - generate one for each product, add onto the web page displaying the product descriptions
View Cart - generate one for the entire store. Should display at the top of the page, next to the navigation menu, so it's easy to users to find.
Instructions for generating button code from Paypal.com
1. Log in to the PayPal site (https://www.paypal.com )
2. Tap on Merchant Services (no need for special premium Paypal accounts, any regular Paypal account should have this tab)
3. Build your PayPal button . Choose your button type, and customize your button with your product name and price.
4. Add the button code to your website. Just copy and paste the code into a HTML Snippet. Use one snippet box per button (if you are adding two Add to Cart buttons, use two different HTML Snippets)
