Shopping Cart Blogger Template

We are proud to release Shopping Cart, the first ever free e-commerce/ online store template with “Add to Cart” and PayPal Checkout function for Blogger. Many had a view that Blogger cannot be transformed into an online store because people thought it is just a platform for beginners and does not have features like a CMS. But, we made it possible in this template. Even though there are so many website templates for accessories, we’re the first to release a fully functional website template for selling products and that too using a Blogger platform.

Thanks to the creators of Simple Cart script which powers entire cart functions in this template. Here is a screenshot of the blog which we set for demo purpose only.

Other blogging platforms like WordPress has “Custom Fields” option which lets us to add extra description such as price and thumbnails without having to add the HTML codes in post editor. But, Blogger doesn’t have that feature. So, we at tried our best to make the item posting as easy as possible by using tables method. Here is how the table looks in post editor.

Template Usage Instructions

Using Blogger’s “Post Template” feature, we are able to pre-format the post editor with text or code that will appear each time we create a new post. So, we will make use of that feature in this template. First, download Shopping Cart Blogger template and upload it to your blog. Now, go to Settings > Formatting. Set the desired number of posts to be shown in the blog.

Then, scroll down the page until you see “Post Template” option. Paste the following code into the text area. And click “Save“.

<table border="1" style="width: 660px;">
  <th class="item_thumb" id="thumb" width="45%"><a href="" onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}"><img alt="" border="0" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5610175970378217570" src="" style="cursor: hand; cursor: pointer; display: block; height: 164px; margin: 0px auto 10px; text-align: center; width: 148px;" /></a></th>
  <td><input class="item_add" type="button" value="Add to Cart" /></td>
  <th><b>Item Name</b></th>
  <td class="item_name">Product Name Goes here!</td>
  <td class="item_price">$99.99</td>
  <td class="item_Description">Your product description here!</td>
  <th><b>Available Stock</b></th>
  <td>Stock count here!</td>
  <td>Place extra thumbs/images of product here</td>

Here is the screenshot of post template which has been added with the code.

Now go to Posting | New Post and you’ll see the table there in your post editor. You can remove the default image that we have added in the code by clicking on it and select “Remove“. Then, upload your item image inside that table cell. We suggest you to use images of medium sizes.

Fill in other options such as Item Name, Price and Description by replacing the default texts. They will be used as values by the SimpleCart script during the PayPal Checkout. And please remember that your Item Name must be unique. Now, click on the HTML Mode in post editor and remove the unnecessary <div>.... </div> in the code for item image. We need only the <img ... /> which has been highlighted in the image below.

So, this is how it will look once we remove the <div>.... and <a href.... which wraps <img ... code.

You can change it back to “Compose” mode, add/edit any information about the product and hit the “Publish” button. That’s all.

PayPal Email Setup Instructions

Go to Design > HTML. Search for using CTRL + F. You will find this piece of code.

<script type='text/javascript'> = &quot;;;
simpleCart.checkoutTo = PayPal;

simpleCart.cartHeaders = [&quot;thumb_image&quot; , &quot;Quantity_input&quot; ,   &quot;Total&quot;, &quot;remove&quot; ];


Replace the default PayPal email that we set ( to yours. And Save the template. You’re done! Here is a sample screenshot of PayPal pop up window during checkout.

We have planned for a paid PRO version of this Shopping Cart with more advanced features and professional look. Please keep the footer credit links intact. If you want to remove the link you have to pay a little fee. And, if you want to get the template customized , contact us. Also check our Blogger Template site Blogger Templates Hub Blog for latest blogger templates.

Update 08/06/2011 :

For those who don’t have PayPal/credit card, you might want to use email contact form. You can replace “Add to Cart” button with a email contact/feedback form link by following the steps below. Heartfelt thanks to one of our blog reader, Vivija(Ble) from Skopje, Macedonia, who spent her time to find this method.

First, go to and register for a new account. Once you logged into Kontacr, scroll down the page until you see the “Ajax Embed Widget” or “Buttons Code” and get your Kontacr ID which will look like this :- id=39662;. Copy it and keep it for the usage in the coming steps.

Now, go to Design > Edit HTML . Add the code shown below just before the closing </head> tag.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Then, search for the piece of code shown below using CTRL + F.

    bottom: 9px;
    font-size: 11px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 15px;
    width: 90px;

There are two input.item_add{ codes in this template. But, you can differentiate them by looking at the CSS declarations inside { .... }. Search for the input.item_add{ code which comes earlier in CSS part. Then, replace it with this code.

    bottom: 9px;
    font-size: 11px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 15px;
    width: 90px;

So now, search for the second input.item_add { code at the bottom of the CSS Part.

input.item_add {
    font-size: 17px;
    height: 40px;
    margin: 5px 0 0 140px;
    position: relative;
    width: 120px;

And replace it with

span.item_add {
    font-size: 17px;
    height: 40px;
    margin: 5px 0 0 140px;
    position: relative;
    width: 120px;

And now click “Save Template”. Once saved, go to Settings > Formatting and search for the “Post Template” option which is located at the bottom of that page.

Add the following code into the text area there and click “Save Settings“. But before that, remember to change the id=39662; with your ID in Kontacr which you get earlier.

<table border="1" style="width: 660px;">
  <th class="item_thumb" id="thumb" width="45%"><a href="" onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}"><img alt="" border="0" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5610175970378217570" src="" style="cursor: hand; cursor: pointer; display: block; height: 164px; margin: 0px auto 10px; text-align: center; width: 148px;" /></a></th>
  <td><span class="item_add"><script type="text/javascript"> id=39662; t=1; ctxt="Order Now"; </script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script></span></td>
  <th><b>Item Name</b></th>
  <td class="item_name">Product Name Goes here!</td>
  <td class="item_price">$99.99</td>
  <td class="item_Description">Your product description here!</td>
  <th><b>Available Stock</b></th>
  <td>Stock count here!</td>
  <td>Place extra thumbs/images of product here</td>

And you’re done. I have updated the demo blog with email feedback links in several items. Thanks again to Vivija.

Update 25/07/2011 :

Due to some suspicious changes in our Google code, where we hosted our script, the Cart Javascript was not working. We have reuploaded the js file. We are are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Search for the following code in your template HTML editor.

<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>

And replace it with the newer source URL.

<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>

Update: I am trying to get the demo URL back to the form. For some unknown reason the Demo blog wasn’t working. So I have contacted Blogger, hope they fix it soon.

Update 2: We have fixed the demo blog issue. Thanks for your patience.

If you want some new features added to the template, hire me for the customization. Hourly rates starting from $25/hr.

                I think this will be enough. I don’t remember everything what I did to mine template:)

  16. Can you add the coupon feature as in wp ??

  17. How do I change a transaction dollars to Rupiah (indonesia) in your shopping cart…………

    • I’m sorry to inform that this template doesn’t support Indonesian Rupiah. Since, this is a open-source script which we got from Net, many of the features are very basic and limited.

  18. I am trying this out. Great template, really needed from the blogger community. I would like to point out that some code for adding the shipping costs is needed too. especially for those who ship internationally in different zones and the prices change a lot. I have no clue how to write code so I am asking you if you think it is possible to get the shipping costs added to the final price.

    and even more complicated …can they be differentiated based on location.

    • Hi Ana! I understand your needs. We tried to make this template to come with most basic features. We’ll include other options such as coupon code, shipping costs, and more in future version of it.

  19. great job \m/

  20. Now the table is not working with the new blogspot platform :(

    • Hi Chris! We’ve used new Blogger blogs with updated post editor for the demo. The table is working fine in our post editor and others too.

      After adding the table code in the “Post Template” under “Settings > Formatting”… go to New Post. If it shows HTML code on the editor, simply select “Compose” mode, so now you will see Tables in your post editor.

  21. how to setting checkout without paypal, just send email to confirm

    • Hi Nang! Sorry :( We’ve used an open-source script for this template. It doesn’t support advanced e-commerce features.

      • I’m working on some scripts where the payment method can be selected, it has Google checkout, PayPal and i’m searching for more methods, i’ll tell you when i’m done…..

        • Hi Sanjay! Thanks for you effort. This is the spirit MAN!!! And yes, this Simple Cart does support Google Checkout. Look at the comment below, a blog reader found a way to use email confirmation for the order. I will write an update with detailed steps regarding that.

    • inside the original simplecart script seems like there is an option to set the checkout to email by setting

      simpleCart.checkoutTo = Email;

      but u need another separate php script to send and receive the email. Find out more at

  22. Need the same thing,e-mail confirmation for order. That would be great, not everyone have pay pal in their country, neither they haveenough trust to give credit card to anybody.

  23. Found a way to cheat for paypal:) Insert contact form instead paypal checkout.
    In Post template insert :

    id=96273; t=1; ctxt=”НАРАЧАЈ”;

    Item Name
    Product Name Goes here!


    Your product description here!

    Available Stock
    Stock count here!

    Place extra thumbs/images of product here

    This part:
    id=96273; t=1; ctxt=”Order”;

    is added instead Add to cart. You have to register on and put your ID number.
    On mail you provided with Kontactr, you’ll get info like this:
    Sender’s name : Blabla
    Sender’s Email :
    Referrer :

    That’s detailed info:) Hope I have help someone.

    • hi Ble! You just did a great find on adding contact form to the template. Unfortunately, you did not include your REAL NAME and URL. Please do the next comment with your name and blog URL so that I mention you in post.

  24. is testing blog for diferent templates. Here is one of many versions. Who knows how it will look like when I finish with it :)

  30. someone copied this “”

    • Hi Paul Santosh! Yes, dude!

      We’ve found it yesterday and Franklin asked that blogger to remove that post in 24 hours via Twitter. I even commented there. But, it looks like he has removed my comment and still keeping that post. This issue is heavily serious. Today, we’re going to make DMCA complaint to Blogger.

    • We filed the complaint to Google just now.

  31. Hi,

    I am testing the template and it seems like I only have 2 posts on each row instead of 3. What seems to be wrong? How can I also change the colours of the template, i.e. the pages border? How can I also make my header appear to cover the whole top of the blog, i.e. the same width as the pages border?

    Sorry all about the questions.

    Thanks though for the template.

  32. hi,

    as per my previous reply, I realised that when using safari and chrome to view the blog, it appears to be 3 columns. However it is 2 columns when viewing with firefox. How so?

  33. Hi, I am testing using your template and found that it has a problem when using IE 8 browser. When the section of the page labeled div id=’topads’ contains text longer than a couple of lines, it flows behind the navigation bar. This seems to be a problem with the float property. Also, the preview images do not appear in the shopping card properly in IE8 either. To see my example, please visit in IE 8 and compare to other browsers. Please let me know if you can solve these issues.

  34. Great template. but i have a question how to replace “Add to Cart” with direct link?. Thank you.

  35. Thank you for the sharing, How I could create using JS on add button?

    I think this manipulated via cart.JS ?

  36. Damn great! Is there a way you can make a new version with multi images view like once in amazone?

    Let’s say a mobile when visiter/buyer click then light box popup whereas dey can see more back, front and side?

  37. hi..can someone help me to change backgorund colour

  38. What an Awesomeness !
    Great job BloggerMint, will talk about this on my French Blog

  39. Hi,

    may I know how to make my header run across the whole top of the template. At the moment, it is small and aligned left. I also do not need the html/javascript box which on your demo says ‘advertise here’. Please help.


  40. Hi,

    Instead of displaying the Add to Cart button on the front page, can I display the Read More button or link?


  41. can i change the background color !?
    I prefer to use black color by the way.

  42. How can i remove the shopping cart box on right top,the one that have empty cart & checkout tab?. i dont need it for my blog.pls reply.thank you!

    • Read the comments!!!
      In Edit HTML delete this, and everything in between.

  43. I wonder why this template doesn’t work anymore with my blogspot. I can no longer edit my post on my newest blog

  44. hi.. i tried your template.. it is a very good template for people who doing online business.. but i encountering one problem here. when i uploaded the images (in the posts), it doesn’t seem to fit well. It looks weird in the main page of the blog. How can I solve this?

    • pictures should be about 300×200 or larger. Template resize them automatically, so it’s better to be larger. If it goes over right line, just place it ‘left'(when you click on picture there’s options-left, center, right…)
      (bloggermint, sorry for answering :) )

      • Haha. I appreciate you in spending your time and responding to comments. We love to have commentators like you. Frankly its hard for me to reply to each and every comments posted on every post.

  45. Ghozian Pribadi

    hello sir, i’m very-very amateur at this problem,how do i add navbar like your demo blog? etc : client testimonial,about us. i couldnt find how to add them.. thanks :)

  46. and i need your review too here :

    and don’t forget to answer my question above mr bloggermint 😉

  47. Hello
    can i use this template with others sistemns like PayPal : PagSeguro, Google Checkout….

  48. Hello, this is a great template ever for an online merchant. I have some suggestion here on improving the template feature.

    I think the idea of “add to cart” is great to be kept rather than changing it to the “order now” button because the buyer can view the total of items bought directly on the cart.

    However, for those who don’t have a paypal account or don’t want to sell thing by using paypal account will face the problem here.

    Therefore, i suggest to change the link of the “checkout” button from paypal to Kontactr. Thus, when the buyer hit the “checkout” button, the kontactr form will pop-out.

    I totally have no idea on how to develop this thing up. If i do know about it, i will do it and share with everybody. Thanks for spending time reading this comment.

    • Contact form from Kontactr is only for one item, you can’t order several items all at once (in one form). It would be great if someone knows how to change this.

    All i see is login to an existing account or create a new account.

  77. the shopping cart is not working. when i pressed the add to cart button it does nothing please help me out thanks.

  78. cool template, downloaded It and will put It on my shopping blogs.

  79. Due to some suspicious changes in our Google code where we hosted our script, the add to cart wasn’t working. We are re-uploading the js file. We are are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    • Read the bottom of the post content and change the link appropriately.

      • i just tested the add to cart and nothing is happening. i replaced the code as stated above and its still not working.

      • I’ve emailed twice and I am not getting any responses. I’ve posted several comments and no responses. Getting a bit frustrated. I know it’s free, but I feel like there is not enough information for us out here who download your template. We need more guidance. You should a do’s and don’ts list and a FAQ list for us to who are having problems. Our answers might be there. How do you get the cart to work? I tried changing your code as you instructed and is not working.

        • The cart is working. I even checked your blog and its working.

          P.S – We release so many templates and we have our own jobs to do in the morning. This is the only advanced shopping cart blogger template which is available for free. We made a very lengthy post to describe how to configure it. I hope everyone should understand us for not replying to mails and comments properly. Also this is not the only post we have, there are more than 150 post here each post gets comments every day.

          If you need customization of your template kindly get our premium support. We wish to help, but practically its impossible to do it for free.

          • Ok thank you for checking. My apologies if I came out too harsh.

  81. How do you add a background to the template instead of it being pure white? And how do you add more tabs on the bar where it says home?

    Thank you

  82. I finally fixed the width of my thumbnail image, but now for some reason the extra images I have in my misc section, they are overlapping to the top where you can see part of one of these images next to the thumbnail image. If you go to my blog you can see what I am talking about. So, the display image shows next to part of another image. It does not look right. Can you please help me with this? I tried and tried tweeking and tweeking and nothing. Please help.
    Thanks!! Bonnie

  87. I am trying to change USD to SEK (Swedish currency).

    It looks ok in the Blogger shopping page but there is a serious error in the Paypal checkout page.

    If I have a sum total of SEK 400 in the shop it is changed to USD 400 in the Paypal checkout.

    Can someone show me where I can correct this?

  88. hi its me again how can i add more post to the main page instead of 9 i only get 7 and i want to show at least 12 or 15 post on the main page please help me out

    • Nick, look at the image under “Template Usage Instructions”.

      The image shows 9 posts.
      Change this number to 12 and save.

  89. I saw that this shop is built around version 2.0.1 of simpleCart.js.
    The latest version at their site is 2.2.1.

    When there is economic transactions involved the security should be a priority. I don’t know exactly what they have changed since 2.0.1 but I would like a comment about this from the developer here.

    One way would be to keep the URL and update it silently when needed.

    Another way would be to release a new version also for the Blogger XML.

    And a third way would be to just leave this as is …

    Can you please comment on these things?

  90. i still get only 4 post and i have 12 post to show on the main page. how can i fix this issue?


  92. my images still don’t look right. I added one image at the top and several at the bottom just as it is on the template. But, for some reason, the bottom images is now overlapping to the top … you have to see my blog to see what I am talking about .. Franklin, did you get a chance to look into this? Could you please tell me how to fix this? Thanks!!!

    • Bonnie, if you click at the product title you can see more about it. So if you click at the “Teacup Tree Tower Centerpiece” and compare to another product page you will find that this page need some fixing.

      The easiest thing to do is to just make a new entry and copy the text and images. This will surely be faster than to try and find what went wrong. Then delete the old entry when you are done.

  93. how can i add a select color box for shoes and select box for sizes to the cart while checking out?i sell shoes and costumers want to choose size and colors is it possible to add that ?im also getting 7 post only instead of 12 how can i fix that?

  94. I am testing the shopping card and I put the first item in but it seems to work until you go to checkout and in the checkout process the order summary it’s not showing the name of the product , can you assist me to fix this problem?
    thanks and great concept for a blogger template, great job.

  114. Hello,

    Now I have a question. I have an ebook and audio self hypnosis system that I created and sell online. I want to know if you could tell me how to integrate the shopping cart feature from (this is where people download my product) into this template.

    Is that possible? The process is pretty much automated so that when people pay my paypal account they receive the link to download their product.

  115. Hello

    Excellent template.

    I want put background. How i can make it? Please where in the html code?

  116. it’s a great free e store blogger template ….. congratulation

  117. I’ve tried this template …. but i have one problem, can you help me……. on how to change the USD currency to Indonesian Currency. Thanks

  118. hi…

    nice tempalate…thank you..

    just want to know… why when i try install
    my blog become blank when view the item…
    any one can help me?

    check out my blog

  119. I came across with one question. All in all it’s a great template, as I understand you just took simple car java script and incorporated it with the template which you made. But there’s one thing that is bothering me which is usually you have a choice when you check out with paypal. You can sign in and pay or sign up. OR pay through paypal with credit card but the option which I stated is not listed there at least it’s not shown to me. Am I right about this or it’s just me who doesn’t see the option. Because if you have to sign up in order to pay for product people will loose the customers in this way, since not everyone are willing to go through that just because they want to buy something. Thank you for your response.. :]

  120. For those who find problems with currency, I have tried various methods to change but still a crow because of this the cart is simple in design to the USD and GBP only.
    Perhaps in one or two days I will get the currency code and we can share.
    Please be patient

  121. Hi there I like your template and all in all as I understand you took simplecart javascript and incorporated with the template, which is great because I have been having some difficulties and I couldn’t find how to just put the simplecart to blogger. Anyways, I find one problem here, that when you want to check out you have to sign in or sign up as a paypal member I don’t see pay as a guest option? This will definitely scare away some people so I want to ask is it possible to fix this problem is there just a minor change which has to be done and that’s it? Because I really want to use your template, but if I can’t give opportunity for people to pay through paypal as a guest I will just limit my business. I will wait for your reply, thank you :]

  122. hey..thank you very much for this template..very nice !

  123. Hi Franklin…
    Is there a step by step instruction how to use this template?


  124. Hi, it’s weird!
    when i press add to cart to the shopping cart, and i click checkout to paypal but
    why it show Error Detected Your shopping cart is empty?

  125. Guys,

    Great looking tool. Two questions:
    Is there a way to get 5 items across the width of the page? Even if that means moving the cart to the bottom like the Simplecart demo.
    Is there a way to get rid of the cart and have a “buy now” check out button next to the item instead of “add to cart”?

    For my application people would just buy the item not purchase multiple items in a cart.

    Thanks again!

  150. Hello,

    The page of my blog does not open when I connect on the Internet via my mobile phone, since I changed the template.

    You can help me to resolve this problem please!


  151. Hi, I encountered the same problem as Joko above.
    I did everything you said but my page is now blank.
    I’ll appreciate your reply on this, thank you!

  152. Thank you so much for this post!
    I just wanted to ask, can’t you use any other currencies for your prices instead of $USD?

  153. Changing the currency in simpleCart(js) is now very easy. You can set the currency in the header after adding the cart:

    simpleCart.currency = EUR;


    simpleCart.currency = Euro;

    A few quick notes:

    The default is US Dollar.
    When you change the currency, any views will use the correct symbol.
    Google Checkout only supports USD and GBP at this time.
    simpleCart(js) does not do any conversion between currencies.

    Here are the supported currencies (all are supported in PayPal ):

    AustralianDollar or AUD
    CanadianDollar or CAD
    CzechKoruna or CZK
    DanishKrone or DKK
    Euro or EUR
    HongKongDollar or HKD
    HungarianForint or HUF
    IsraeliNewSheqel or ILS
    JapaneseYen or JPY
    MexicanPeso or MXN
    NorwegianKrone or NOK
    NewZealandDollar or NZD
    PolishZloty or PLN
    PoundSterling or GBP
    SingaporeDollar or SGD
    SwedishKrona or SEK
    SwissFranc or CHF
    USDollar or USD

  154. if i added that script, my blog shows nothing like your demo

    would you like to update the template

To upload the template go to Template and look at the top right of the screen, find a Backup/Restore button. Click it. There you will see how to upload this wonderful template for which I am thankful very much :)

  250. This template didin’t work well on my blog..
    I don’t know why..

  251. Thanks, it’s a great template. One small glitch tho, the shopping cart only allows 3 items when you browse through older item pages.
    So if I Added 7 items from Page one, and then clicked on older posts, only 3 items remain in the cart…

    Keep it up,.

  252. I want to change the background image and colors. When I put my html code in for the background body image, nothing happened. Is there something in your code that prevents me from customizing this to my own style? Please tell me how I can customize the background colors and image to reflect my personal style.

    Everything seems to work up until I get to PayPal Email Setup Instructions. I cant seem to find the phrase SimpleCart in my HTML, It says phrase not found.

    I do have a paypal account and prefer to use paypal instead of an email contact form.


  266. Hi There,

    I have just downloaded your shopping cart code and input it into my Blogger page, but I am getting an error “Your HTML cannot be accepted: Tag is broken: ![CDATA[ ”

    If I close the Tag by putting a ]]> after the <![CDATA[ I get a new error message
    "Your HTML cannot be accepted: Tag is broken: DATA" Since there word DATA is used a hundred times in the template I am not sure where the error really is. Any assistance on fixing this would be greatly appreciated cause I can't wait to start using this setup on my blog. :)

    Thanks so much for your efforts in getting this up and running and sharing it with us all. I played around with the demo and loved it.

    • Hi just a follow up in case anyone was having the same issues I was. I found out why I couldn’t use your shopping cart. I was using the Dynamic Views Blogger template and html/java script gadgets are not compatible.

  267. how to change the img thumb?

  268. Great template, I was wondering if there was a way to customize as far as adding a button that gave the customer the ability to input. We sell ebooks and need to know what format of ebook they want ie: epub, mobi, or PDF and need that to show in the order form?

  269. Is it possible to add a shopping cart just to a blogger page and not to the blogger home?

  270. Text in English: I’m from Brazil, I would like to integrate with the payment system PagSeguro is possible?

    Texto em Português: Sou do Brasil, gostaria de integrar com o sistema de pagamento Pagseguro é possivel ?

  271. Hi there! What an awesome template you have here! I never imagined I’d find something like it when I stumbled on it!

    So I have a question, and honestly I googled everything I could think of to try and find my answer before I bothered you with my silly questions 😛

    Is it at all possible to work it somehow with downloadable products? So that after paying with paypal, the customer is redirected to another place to download the products they purchased? I figure it’s a long shot, but it never hurts to ask!

    Again, thank you!

    • I have same question…….
      ( I mean if someone bought our product and downloading our product from our site so they get only one chance to download and also that tool should know that people download link successfully or not, if not, so it should continue from last, where its broken. )

      I hope you can understand what i am trying to say you.

      Thank you very much for your lovely template, WORKING CORRECT as you described.

      ***** Stars for you.

  272. Hi!

    Why the “item_name” of the posts DONT appear, causing that i see part of the table form?

    I do it all but nothing work. It’s a bug like the MAX 3 items that can achieve the cart?

    Thanks for your attention

  273. Olá, o seu template shopping cart não suporta pagamento em real, do Brasil, através do pagseguro. Poderia desenvolver um plugin que permitisse isso? Pois aqui utilizamos muito o blogger, porém não dá suporte para recebimento pelo pagseguro e google checkout. Obrigada!

  281. Hi

    once checkout, the calculated currency is USD. how do i change this to my country currency, MYR?

  282. Is there a way to have a confirmation message after the user click the “send” button using kontactr’s form ?


    Thank you for your orders. You will be contacted within the next…. Please wait for confirmation email.

  283. Edit the HTML file in blogger

    simpleCart.checkoutTo = PayPal;
    simpleCart.currency = USD; —-> change this to your currenc
    >>> I did try this but the calculation remains in USD. Help!

    • Hello, Ros.

      Go to the very same place you went and put the currency you want between ‘single quotes’, without spaces at all.

      Ex.: simpleCart.currency=’USD’;

      At least it worked in the checkout section. I coudn’ t change the sign “$” to my currency “R$” when the items appear added to the cart. If someone manages to do it, please let us know here.

      I hope it helped a little bit. =)

        It will still display as ‘$’ once in the cart but when you click Check Out and then once you’re taken on the PayPal page, the price will finally be in ‘PHP’

        Hope that helps.

  305. Hi there.
    I d like to really thank you about this template. Its like template heaven for us blogger.
    I have tried both versions Pay Pal Cart and Contactr and both have worked.
    Then i decided to go with the Cotactr one. Though i need help about this.
    You see Cotactr version suits me fine when the item is to be sold directly from me.
    But some items will be sold though Amazon Associate. So all i need is how to modify the code (Contactr version) and replace the whole contactr proceess with the link code provided by Amazon and so when someone click on the “Order now” text the Amazon link takes action…
    Honestly i think that this one may work for all of us using your awesome template

  306. Thank you, this is useful for me, you was help me to find the blogger store. This template and tutorial is very awesome and helpful for me especially, thank you so much!
