eCart 5 with Paypal Website Payment Standard

eCart 5 with Paypal Website Payment Standard

Hello
I am planning on using ecart5 with Paypal Standard for this eStore that has many physical goods all with different colors. I have cataloged the items into catagories that fit together. I like to find out how I can handle the color options. A lot of the items have different color to be selected, say one item's color option could be blue and red and another item color selection could be teal and purple. So if I set up a color selection input box in ecart, how can I show the colors in the selection input box that varry from item to item? The colors are in a database so I could dynamically do this but all the colors for each item are in one column using a comma to separate them.
I have looked for a help file on this throughout WebAssist website but haven't been able to find any.
Thank you

having the colors in one column in a comma separated list will not work. You will need to use an option table that has a relation to the products table like our sample eCommerce database:
ecommerce-database/

See this thread for info on product options using the sample eCommerce database:

OK Jason I created another table with colorGroupID and colors so now I have two tables, one that has product data plus a new cloumn for colorGroupID which I have added to that table. And the new table which has 3 columns, an auto increment column and the colorGroupID and colors column.
Can I use this setup to extract the right colors for each product item? There are some 700 items, why it took so long!!

It sounds like you are using the colorGroupID column as the foreign key relation to the products table, you just need to create the record sets using an inner join to get the colors that correspond to the product.
