Link Back to Image in Portfolio

You will need to have attached PayPal to your FASO account and have added a Buy Now button to the piece in question in order for this to work properly.

For how to, see this FAQ:
How do I use PayPal and add Buy Now buttons?

Option 1

The easiest option is to simply link back to the image in your portfolio and let your collector click on the Buy Now button that is posted on your website.

When you insert an image into your newsletter, the image will automatically link back to the image in your portfolio (on your website).

Just type in some text below the image, perhaps like:
Click the image above to go to the purchase page.


Option 2

You can add the image and then add a button below the image that links back to the image on your website.

The button would say something like Click Here to Purchase.

FIRST, obtain the image url:

  • from your FASO Website (not your control panel)
  • go to the page that open the zoom view of the image
  • copy the url from your browser's address bar

Second, add the Link­-Button to your newsletter draft:

In the draft you are working on

  • click on Link-Button option (left column in Add Content section)
     - clicking on the button will add the button to the bottom of your draft
     - click and drag will drag the button into the draft

NOTE: You cannot add the button to a Text Block. The button is a stand alone Content Block.

  • click on Click Me (or the blue pencil icon) to edit the button
  • paste in the url for the image
  • name the button
    (perhaps something like Click Here to Purchase or Buy Now)
  • there are additional options you can edit here as well
  • click Update
