paypal shopping cart

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to set up a shopping cart on my site and am using the one provided by paypal. I can see how it works if my page was static but I am trying to pull the products on sale dynamically from my database.Not sure where I should be putting the code provided. I have a table on my page that displays the image,name of prod and price, so I to be able to display the "Add to cart" button beside these

Also do I need to create a new buton for every item or can I post the value of "amount" and " item_number" and "item_name" in from my db. I'm looking for the simplest way possible as i'm not very good at php


<form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/x-click-but22.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!">
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
<input type="hidden" name="add" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_cart">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="ciaracousins@hotmail.com">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Fenchurch Sony Skirt">
<input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="46.99">
<input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="EUR">
<input type="hidden" name="bn" value="PP-ShopCartBF">

This is how I am displaying the other details about the product and would like to be able to display the "add to cart" button in a column beside it

<td align="center" width="150" height="200"><img src="http://snet.wit.ie/~ciaracousins/clothes/' . $row['image'] . '">
<td align="center"><b>'.$row['prodName'].'</td></b>
<td align="center"><b>€'.$row['price'].'</td></b>[/code]
