Insert Buy, View Cart, And Check Out Buttons Into Web Pages Using Order-Link

Order Link

The dynamic catalog, which is created automatically by the shopping cart program, is only one way to display products and process orders. In addition, there is a method called Order-Link, which may be used to include shopping cart buy buttons, product selection, and other shopping cart functionality in web pages and messages. Order-Link works within local and remote web pages.

Order-Link is very flexible and easy to use, however some knowledge is required in order to edit HTML pages and upload them to the server. Here is a general description of how Order-Link works, followed by specific applications, which may be modified and adapted to suite your needs.

Snipets of HTML code are generated automatically for each product. In the admin panel > Edit Catalog, select a category to display the product. Click the chain link image in the upper right corner for the product to open the Order-Link code generator.

Order Link Code Generator

Order-Link uses simple HTML forms and links. The order information is posted to the shopping cart by submitting a form or by getting a URL. Parameters set by the form post or URL are passed to the shopping cart, which saves the cart contents in a cookie on the shopper's browser. When a View Cart or Check Out link is clicked, the shopping cart reads the cookie and generates the appropriate page. Order-Link can be used on individual web pages and it can be used to convert an entire web site into a shopping cart. It can work independently of the dynamic catalog and in conjunction with it. The code that is copied from the Order-Link code generator can be modified in various ways for different types of products and ordering systems.

For a quick reference see the online help topic for Order-Link. Click on one of the links below for specific examples and step by step instructions. For each example, the products must be first added to the product catalog through the AShop administration panel.
