View Full Version : Worldpay shopping cart intergration

February 19th, 2005, 08:56 AM

I'm quite interested in buy photopost ... as we want to develope an online gallery allowing photographers and artists to exhibit their images online and sell them on canvas ... BUT we are currently using worldpay.
The shopping cart software we are using is very simple and easy to setup and just requires us to create a custom html link for each product ... i was wondering if its possible to modify the templates of photopost, so that we can create a dynamic link which takes the customer into our shopping cart software ... and will also allow the artist to set their own price ...

Well if you know what this link is you can define it.

I think I would need a bit more info of what type of link your doing.

here is an example of what the link could look like.

this is it at its simplest ...

<a href="http://www.fastcart.co.uk/cart/index.php?id=1223&item=Big+Blue+Widget&price=9.99">

we can also do it in other ways by using forms to create custom products ...

Well you can modify the script to generate a link if say you use one extra field to store the link so a user has this link displayed to click it to go to the cart and even use another extra field to hold the price. I assume the id would come from our products id in our table but if not you could use another field to hold the carts id for this product and use that in the auto generated url. My question is how is this getting inserted into the cart or are you also needing when a product is uploaded for a sql insert being needed to be inserted into the cart database?
