How do I use PayPal and display Add to Cart buttons?

eCommerce easily integrated with PayPal

All FASO Accounts have built-in eCommerce and a world-class shopping cart.

To attach your Paypal account to your FASO website and add the Add to Cart buttons:

  • log into your FASO control panel
  • click Commerce icon (upper row, towards the right)
  • click Click here to begin
  • if you do not have a PayPal account, click on the PayPal logo in order to set up a PayPal account
  • if you already have an account, click on Click here to continue if you already set up your PayPal account
  • enter the email address that is registered with your PayPal account
  • click Submit to finalize the process

Your website will automatically create Add to Cart buttons for any artwork showing a price, and Availability as blank or Available

We have chosen to use “Add to Cart” over the old PayPal "Buy Now" buttons since the "Add to Cart" terminology is more up to date. Also it 'feels like' less of a commitment for your buyer than "Buy Now" since it is just "Putting the artwork in the cart."


Once you mark an image as Sold, it will not show the Add to Cart button.

When you sign up for a PayPal account, you choose from 3 options:

Personal account transactions are free.
You'll need Premier or Business to accept credit cards.

PayPal charges a small fee on sales (2.9% + $0.30 per sale) for completed transactions.

Opening a PayPal account and withdrawing money to a U.S. bank account are free.

PayPal does not charge set-up, gateway or monthly fees to maintain an account.
