Payment solution

Firstly, I wasnt sure where to post this question as i have both eCart and Payment Buttons extension.

I need some advice on the best product.
I have a paypal business account.

I need to build a payment page where logged in users select a credit package from a simple drop down, where each option has a different cost value.

html:
<select name="cred-option" id="cred-option">								        																        <option value="5.00">3</option>
<option value="8.00">7</option>
<option value="10.00">10</option>
<option value="12.50">15</option> </select>



then proceeds to purchase. No downloads of any description or carriage and tax etc required.

When a user selects an option to buy, I need the 'value' used in the payment transaction.

For example, if a logged in user selects option 7, they will need to pay GBP 8.00.

Both values need inserting into my transaction table thus;

the credit value 7 into the credit-qty field and the credit cost GBP 8.00 into the credit-cost field. I can sort any transaction id's and dates etc.

Any advise on simplest solution would be appreciated.

Thank you.

use eCart for this.

create a new column in the cart object for credit option.

in the add to cart button, set the price column to be editable from a select list. set the credit option column to updateble from a hidden form element.

after the add to cart button is added and has created the select list and hidden element for you, populate the select list with the labels and values

Now, you will need to add an onChange event to the select list to populate the hidden form element with the selected label. make note of:
1) The form name
2) The select list name
3) the hidden element name

the onchange script will look like:

onChange="document.formName.hiddenElementName.value = document.formName.selectName[document.formName.selectName.selectedIndex].text"

Jason,

I believe I followed the instructions, but fearful I may have missed something as the my buy option is not adding to cart.

I've attached the source file, any ideas?

Thanks,

the onchange code is not correct:

onchange="&quot;document.eCredit.eCredits_1_ID_Add.value = document.eCredit.eCredits_1_creditoption_Add[document.eCredit.eCredits_1_creditoption_Add.selectedIndex].text&quot;"




should be:

onchange="document.eCredits_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_CredOptions["cred_id"]; ?>.eCredits_1_creditoption_Add.value = document.eCredits_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_CredOptions["cred_id"]; ?>.eCredits_1_Price_Add[document.eCredits_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_CredOptions["cred_id"]; ?>.eCredits_1_Price_Add.selectedIndex].text"

I am trying something similar but it always returns the first value in the description field in the cart.

This is the code i applied to the onchange event onchange="document.domains_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_Recordset1["URLID"]; ?>.domains_1_Description_Add.value = document.domains_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_Recordset1["URLID"]; ?>.domains_1_Price_Add[document.domains_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_Recordset1["URLID"]; ?>domains_1_Price_Add.selectedIndex].text"

although it changes the quotes to &quot; in dreamweaver

change:

php:
onChange="&quot;document.domains_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_Recordset1["URLID"]; ?>.domains_1_Description_Add.value = document.domains_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_Recordset1["URLID"]; ?>.domains_1_Price_Add[document.domains_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_Recordset1["URLID"]; ?>domains_1_Price_Add.selectedIndex].text&quot;"



to:

php:
onChange="document.domains_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_Recordset1["URLID"]; ?>.domains_1_Description_Add.value = document.domains_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_Recordset1["URLID"]; ?>.domains_1_Price_Add[document.domains_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_Recordset1["URLID"]; ?>domains_1_Price_Add.selectedIndex].text"
