General Settings

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. 


Additional Notes and Tips

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.
