How do I create shopping carts?

Creating fully functioning shopping carts with plug&paid requires only a few clicks. Shopping carts are part of our "plugs" so to create a shopping cart simply look for the "Create Plug" button that is visible in all your pages while logged in to your plugnpaid account.

What is a plug?

Think of your plug as a campaign or an ecommerce channel for your product. It contains a shopping cart and all its related settings, templates, payment gateways and a sales channel. You attach/remove payments from a plug, switch between cart templates, set up languages, add taxes, add/remove products etc. You can also duplicate plugs. 

How does it work ? 

1. Add/Select the product you wish to sell. 

2. Set up your shopping cart by choosing a template and adding a payment gateway.

3. Select a channel (button, widget, 'custom' or link) 

4. Get your code and start selling!

If you choose a button, 'custom' or a widget as your channel, you will be provided with an embed code that you can add on your website.

Do I need a website to use plugnpaid shopping carts? 

You do not need a website to use our shopping carts. When you create a plug we automatically generate a page that will host your shopping cart. You can use the URL link of that page and share it with your customers on social media, email campaigns and more.
