If you wish to accept payments for products and subscriptions, you will need to set up a PayPal account.
Your PayPal email can be set in the dashboard, which will automatically pre-populate the Paypal email field in the EZ Product, EZ Subscribe, and EZ Cart blocks.
As of EZ Product 1.3, there are some new global default settings that can be applied via the dashboard page.
For your own reference, you can save some custom notes in the dashboard, which are displayed in the "Help" tab for the EZ Product and EZ Subscribe blocks.
The EZ Product block has three product type modes: Buy Now, Add to Cart, and Catalog.
Use the EZ Cart block to create a "view cart" or "checkout" button. This simply links users to the Paypal cart, where they can view the items in their cart and choose to continue to checkout, or return to your site to continue shopping.
The EZ Subscribe block allows you to create a Paypal subscription, which has support for recurring billing. Please note that this does NOT create paid memberships on your Concrete5 site!
Two trial periods can be set, each with their own prices. For a FREE trial, enter "0".
Paypal allows you to display a custom logo on the checkout page for subscriptions. It is recommended to use a 150 x 50px logo, although any size will work.
Simply copy and paste the logo URL into the EZ Product dashboard. Upload a logo via the dashboard File Manager, then use the Properties to get the URL and copy it to the EZ Product dashboard.
The EZ Cards block allows you to establish trust with customers by displaying credit card icons and a PayPal badge. You can add as many of them to a page as you like, in any combination.
