Multiple Pirces on Drop Down Menu

Multiple Pirces on Drop Down Menu

I can not get the Free Tools addon to allow for multiple prices for Drop Down Menus. I researched around and best I could find was I needed "Paypal eCommerce Toolkit" from here but doesn't seem to be available. Paypal has this option, but if I can build it into the website vs Paypal then I'd prefer that. As with the free tools it's allows me to do mass sale reduction prices on stuff in 1/10 the time it took me on Paypal without the hassle.

Basically I want something like this:

Option A - $1.00
Option B - $3.25
Option C - $2.24
etc

Also, I was wondering if there was somehow to get each button to report to the inventory sales/loss report that PayPal offers with each button.

Thanks.

if your using hosted buttons, this wont be possible.

if you are using standard HTML buy now buttons, you could add a Javascript on change event to change the price. send a link to your page and I can give the code example.

any inventory reporting would need to be configured with in the paypal account, not from the button.

Right now I don't have the site up as I'm starting it scratch and wanted to get it as operational as I could before launching it.

In the past when I've worked with other sites I've used the buttons stored on PayPal's site, but recently I found the free tools here and been using them. I have the options of using the Standard buttons or the "Create version" that required the API information if that helps makes a difference. I was just hoping to do it like you could on Paypal's site with illustrated example above instead of it dynamically changing a price when you clicked on the option.

"the "Create version" that required the API information" uses the hosted buttons.

with hosted buttons, the GUI in free tools does not allow for setting different prices for different options, but you can create the button on paypals end to set those settings, then use Free Tools to add them to the page.



other than that, you could use standard HTML buttons and set a javascript function to change the price.

Ok, I think I got them working the way I want. Trying out some things to see how it works. Thanks for the help.

One last question I have. If I set up a shipping profile on Paypal using for instance

1-2 lbs = $2.00
2-5 lbs = $4.00
etc

Is there anyway to incorporate the shipping profile into the tools? I didn't see any offhand so it doesn't look like it. Since all the buttons I manually create with the tool don't appear on PP's site since they are not being stored there.
