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.

You have the option of using PayPal and/or Stripe for eCommerce. 

For info on using Stripe, see this FAQ:
How to Use Stripe for Processing Payments

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

  • from FASO control panel
  • click Commerce icon (upper row, towards the right)
  • click Setup Paypal button
    *** see below if you do not see Setup Paypal button
  • 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

***If you do not see this screen

 when clicking on Commerce icon, follow these steps:

  • from Commerce icon
  • enter the email address you use for your Paypal account in the Paypal Email field 
  • Save Changes

NOTE: We have chosen to use “Add to Cart” over the old PayPal "Buy Now" buttons. 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.
See this FAQ: How to Change Artwork to Show as Sold, Removing Add to Cart Buttons
