EZ Product is a suite of front-end blocks that allows you to sell products with PayPal!
Does NOT Do:
Create products to sell, entirely on the front-end!
Create recurring billing plans.
A simple block to link to the Paypal shopping cart.
This block should be used with EZ Product blocks that are using the "Add to Cart" option.
Display credit card icons and a Paypal badge. Use this block to help establish trust! PayPal also accepts major credit cards as an alternate payment method, and the icons for those are displayed via this block.
The EZ Product package includes a handy dashboard page where you can configure a couple settings that will be used across the entire site.
PayPal Email - setting this will pre-populate the Paypal Email field in the EZ Product, EZ Cart, and EZ Subscribe blocks. This saves you from having to enter it every time you add a block. You can override this in each block simply by using a different email for that specific block!
Business Logo - Enter a URL for a logo image, which will be used on the PayPal checkout page.
Notes - Save some notes for your own reference! These will be displayed in the "Help" tabs for the EZ Product and EZ Subscribe blocks.
SECURITY. EZ Product is not a fully secure ecommerce solution! There is a risk for hackers injecting unwanted data when submitting a form. For example, a hacker might attempt to modify the price. However, the PayPal checkout process is secure, as Paypal handles all security for the actual transaction.
COPY BLOCKS. If you have many product blocks that are similar, a significant amount of time can be saved by copying and pasting blocks. Concrete5 has a built-in clipboard feature where you can copy a block, and paste it elsewhere. Learn how here.
SITEWIDE CART ACCESS. It is recommended to place the EZ Cart block (as well as the EZ Cards block) into a global (sitewide) area, if your theme provides one. This will make it much easier for users to access and view their cart.
