How to buy
I have been using the classified system mostly for job postings, but would also like to be able to let users sell items.
I know it sounds crazy, but I have no idea how to buy something.
I created a test add, it uses the For Sale template.
I set the price at $1.
I logged in as a test user, and can not find anywhere to buy the item. I even set it so guests can use But It Now.
The only options I see as the test user are:
Add to Watch List
Receive Email Updates
I am using the beta version.
Please guide me as to where I went wrong.
There are multiple things to consider
Users should see a buy it now button then
See, I knew I'd feel silly.
That worked, but now I see something else of concern.
The test item was entered for a cost of $1 and $1 to ship.
I selected to buy 10 of the item, and the next page says
"The payment for this ad is $110.
You are buying 10 products at $1.00 + $10 Shipping Amount."
Shouldn't the total be $20?
Cost of item x number purchased = 1 x 10=10
Cost of shipping x number of items shipped = 1 x 10=10
The message even says I am buying 10 items for $1 each with a shipping cost of $10.
I will test that and see what I get
However you might want to check your buy it now price versus the price on the actual ad
I don't see a place to enter a Buy It Now price.
Asking price? (Numbers only, enter 0 for Best Offer):
You may enter a buy it now price to allow users to buy the product and end your ad or auction. (Numbers only!)::
If this is an auction you may enter a reserve price and if your auction price is not equal or greater to this price your auction will automatically be relisted. (Numbers only!)::
Quantity of Ads?
You dont see this?
I see this
It seems likely I don't have these configured correctly.
Looking at the code it would appear your not using the new code and templates
Example if you don't allow bidding on a category I can see how you wont see the auction switch
However the buy it now is a simple input box in the for sale template
