ecart and paypal standard

Hello to all,

I'm going to begin working on a shopping cart for a client using ecart and paypal standard. The reason for paypal standard is the client is looking to keep her expenses down and the monthly charge for pro is something she can't handle initially.

I only glanced over the ecart documentation and am wondering it actually works. From reading other posts, I interpret that no checkout page needs to be created since it will be using a remote paypal checkout. Am I correct? Do I used their buttons or the add to cart buttons from ecart? What are the basic steps to get ecart and paypal standard playing well together?

Any direction you can lead me towards to begin this on the right footing would be GREATLY appreciated.

Cheers,
jc

using the eCart checkout wizard, you can chose to crate checkout pages for paypal Standard.

Here are my planned steps to create the ecommerce store pages.

1. Create Database and populate with data.

2. Create product pages dynamically populated from the database (DA or ecart?)

3. Follow ecart getting started guide for the dynamic store from "Creating an eCart online store" forward. Of course, using my data.

-This should take me through the process of applying "add to cart" buttons. and guiding me towards the integration I need between ecart and paypal standard.

I couldn't see any other steps to follow for completing the site. I interpret the first two as a prequel to the shopping cart creation (that being number three). If there are any steps missing, please reply with some guidance.

Cheers and thanks for the help

Use data assist to create the product catalog pages.

The ecart getting started guide will walk through adding the add to cart buttons to the page and creating the cart display page.

After that is done, with the cart display page open, run the checkout wizard to create the checkout pages that will process the transaction through paypal standard. See the Checkout wizard tutorial on the Solution Recipe section of the eCart support page:

Excellent Jason, Thanks.

I'll do my best to get things going properly using Data Assist. Haven't really had the opportunity to get going with it, so I'll be a bit lost at the beginning.

When I have any questions I'll drop a line in the forum.

Thanks again.
