Add Order Buttons to an Existing Web site (OrderAnywhere)

Do you already have a Web site that you want to add Order buttons to? ShopSite's Order Anywhere feature makes it easy to add order buttons and a shopping cart to your existing Web site. No matter what you used to create your pages, you can easily place ShopSite add-to-cart buttons on any HTML page.

Watch an Order Anywhere Video Tutorial to see how easily you can add order buttons to your Web site:

OrderAnywhere - Add Order Buttons To An Existing Web site - shows how you can use the OrderAnywhere feature within ShopSite to add order buttons to an existing Web site.

OrderAnywhere - Working in Basic Web site Builder - shows how you can use the OrderAnywhere feature with Web site builder applications which do not allow you to use the drag and drop option or the HTML OrderAnywhere option within ShopSite.

In three simple steps you can begin taking orders right off your existing pages:

1. Add your product to ShopSite.

2. Create Add to Cart buttons using OrderAnywhere.

3. Paste the order buttons on your existing HTML pages.

You can also customize your ShopSite shopping cart to look similar to your existing Web site.

Creating an Order Button

After creating your product in ShopSite, use the OrderAnywhere feature to create the order button. Select the product you want to create an order button for, and ShopSite will display the order button and HTML code for the product. For example, here's a product from the Al's Tools demo store, and we've used OrderAnwhere to place the order button on this page:

Belt Sander

In some WYSIWYG editors, you can copy or drag the order button straight from ShopSite and paste or drop it onto your HTML page. For other editors, ShopSite can show you the HTML code for the buttons and you can copy and paste it into your editor window. The example below shows the HTML code used to add an order button for the Belt Sander product above to a page:

<a href="http://eval.shopsite.com/cgi-bin/shopper/sc/order.cgi?storeid=*14a411dac56fb01605b2274b&dbname=products&itemnum=116&function=add">
<img src="http://eval.shopsite.com/shopper/als/media/order.gif" border="0"></a>

The examples above are exactly the same as what you can expect using Order Anywhere. You can try it out by selecting either the Add to Cart button or the HTML from the examples above and pasting it into a page using your favorite HTML Editor. Then, click the button on your page to place the product in our demo store's shopping cart.

Quantity and Other Options

Do you also want to have quantity and pull-down options displayed on your product pages? ShopSite can automatically generate all the form elements for your products:


Handle Color

Just like with a simple button, you can copy the links off the OrderAnywhere page, or ShopSite will generate the code and you can just paste it into your web page.

Manually Generate Order Buttons

If you don't want to go to the Order Anywhere screen and create a button for each individual product in your store, the OrderAnywhere by SKU feature in ShopSite Pro is an easy solution. You can easily have ShopSite create order buttons that use the product SKU in the button information. Once a button is generated, the only difference between buttons for different products is the SKU value. You still create your products in ShopSite, but once you have created an Order Button you can use the same HTML code for order buttons, only changing the SKU for different products.
