    That would be perfect~

    I would love that. If I can view the coding, it would be much easier for me to figure out how it all works. This site is a good example of what I'm trying to achieve: http://www.dish-designs.com/home.htm

    Thanks!

    Okay, here's the function I have. Bear in mind that this is being handled the way I'm storing records internally within Flash; you'll very likely have to loop through your cart differently.

    Code:
    function checkout() {
    	checkMC = new LoadVars();
    	checkMC.rand = random(99999);
    	checkMC.cmd = "_cart";
    	checkMC.upload = "1";
    	checkMC.business = "sendto@email.com";
    	checkMC.currency_code = "USD";
    	checkMC.amount = total.text.substr(1, total.text.length-1); //amount in decimal (eg 32.45)
    	for (var i = 0; i<cartRef.records.length; i++) {
    		var num = i+1;
    		checkMC["item_name_"+num] = cartRef.records[ i].part; // part name
    		checkMC["quantity_"+num] = cartRef.records[ i].quantity; // part quantity
    		checkMC["amount_"+num] = cartRef.records[ i].price; // part price
    		checkMC["on0_"+num] = "Unit price: $"+cartRef.records[ i].price; // optional field 1
    		checkMC["on1_"+num] = "Count: "+cartRef.records[ i].count; // optional field 2
    	}
    	checkMC.send("https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr", "_blank", "POST");
    }
    Basically, item_name_X, quantity_X, and amount_X are the important things for each item. X must start at 1 and increase sequentially.

    So close, yet...

    First off, thank you marshdabeachy, I've been looking for this code for days. Also, I love your site. Very nice.

    My problem is in using that code on the site I'm currently building for myself. I only have two items to sell so I just list all the variables to send instead of using the for loop. The proplem is that when the quantity variable for either item is equal to zero, paypal gets cranky and gives a page that says the shopping cart is empty. Here's my site, very much still being created... http://www.nicholaskoby.com
    and here's the code I use on my checkout button...

    on (release) {
    payPal = new LoadVars();
    payPal.rand = random(99999);
    payPal.cmd = "_cart";
    payPal.business = "nick@nicholaskoby.com";
    payPal.currency_code = "USD";
    payPal.upload = "1";
    payPal.amount = (orderform.grandTotal + ".00");

    payPal.item_name_1 = "Caffeinated";
    payPal.quantity_1 = orderform.quantity1;
    payPal.amount_1 = "13.00";
    payPal.item_number_1 = "DR-001";

    payPal.item_name_2 = "Dirty Martini";
    payPal.quantity_2 = orderform.quantity2;
    payPal.amount_2 = "15.00";
    payPal.item_number_2 = "DR-002";

    payPal.send("https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr", "_blank", "POST");
    cart.gotoAndPlay("checkout");
    }




    Please help! Any ideas?

    Just disregard the record if the quantity is set to 0. For example...

    Code:
    if (orderform.quantity1 > 0) {
       payPal.item_name_1 = "Caffeinated";
       payPal.quantity_1 = orderform.quantity1;
       payPal.amount_1 = "13.00";
       payPal.item_number_1 = "DR-001";
    }
    Of course, if the first item has a quantity set to 0, then it will skip record 1. I'm not sure how Paypal will react if don't provide the records in order. In case it gets cranky, you'll have to add an iterator that will keep things in order...

    Code:
    var iter = 1;
    if (orderform.quantity1 > 0) {
       payPal["item_name_"+iter] = "Caffeinated";
       payPal["quantity_"+iter] = orderform.quantity1;
       payPal["amount_"+iter] = "13.00";
       payPal["item_number_"+iter] = "DR-001";
       iter++;
    }
    Do that same type of thing for the other one, should work just fine.

    perfect

    Bloody brilliant! You just saved me many many frustrated hours. I still had some issues until I realized exactly what the iter variable is for, and deleted the line where I reset it between items.

    Thanks!

    Marshdabeachy, could I ask just one more question of you? The Background Selector experiment on your web site... I've been trying to do something similar with mouseover buttons and a slidding menu for an mp3 player on my site. Having a very hard time figuring it out, the cool physics-like slidding I mean. Don't suppose you could point me to any tutorials or even concepts used to get me going in the right direction?

    Hi guys,

    I am using the variables as set above to use a simple buy now button. The only issue I am having is with the return url

    I have it set as payPal.return =
    "http://www.mysite.co.uk/payment-successful.php";

    It works fine for the cancel one where the code is =
    payPal.cancel_return = "http://www.mysite.co.uk/error.php";

    It is an issue to do with the return variable but that is set by Pay Pal.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers,

    Neil

    Sorry to drudge up such an OLD thread..but there isnt much here besides this one.

    post# 24:

    can I ask if the "amount" var
    code:

    payPal.amount = (orderform.grandTotal + ".00");



    is needed when you are passing in the individual amount per item like that??

    trying to get mine working...but want to hardcode some stuff to test..then work on looping through.

    Thanks


    also how would be the best way to "loop" through these cart values?

    I see the above loop example..but Im not sure where hes getting his values from or how they are formatted.

    would I make some sort of internal ARRAY?

    cartTotalItems = ""; //increment x by 1's each add to cart (to get totalProds)
    cartTotalPrice=""; //sum of ALL product prices.
    cartItemNames = [];
    cartQuantity=[];

    etc..etc..


    having alittle trouble getting my head around the logic here.. Im not great with loops yet...but Im sure I can loop through an array to pull my data...

    I guess Im having trouble setting up my data to get to that point..

    suggestions?...

    thanks

    N_R_D -
    what do you mean by 'free standing'??


    also...
    you would use radio buttons...the same you would anything else, on click of the radioButton it just sets the SAME variable to have a different value.

    I coudl show you a "crude" demo, using comboBoxes.

    has a 'store' of shirts to pick from (all loaded/populated through XML)
    you can 'buy' as many shirts as you want and it adds it to your 'cart'...you can delete products from the cart before final check out...

    since this was only a DEMO for testing...when you actually add a product to the cart the cart is right on top of the 'shopping' page... I didnt make it a seperate section...so its kind of ugly ... but functional.
