FAQ's

Q - Why when I click the "Send Order" button in the cart slide down it goes to a Page Not Found?
A - Please check that your Send Order page URL matches the ones in Step 5: "Drop Down View Cart Buttons & Url's". 

Q - Hey! When I tried to click the send order button, It's diverts to Paypal. Why?
A - By default the shopping cart is workable and functional via the pre-sets included upon template install. Normally there can be 2 instances which could cause the errors:-
  1. Error in your customisations - This includes missing commas, missing colons, typo errors & not following the initial format given in template codes.
  2. You did not update Step No 6.1 "Insert Ref: Send Order URL". Expand <b:includable id='main'> by clicking the black triangle and insert the FULL URL to your send order page here.

Q - Owh! Now when I click the Send Order at my checkout form button it goes to a Page Not Found. Why?
A - One or more settings in your "cart-email" did not follow the initial format provided. Normally the " http:// " protocol is included in the URL at your blog address, success page & error page. Remove the " http:// " and it will be working again.

Q - Why don't you guys build a Blogger widget for this template?
A - Good question! But we want you to familiarize with the codes & the shopping cart plug-in for Blogger templates. The plug-in itself is so versatile & by including simple line of codes, the plug-in can do what e-commerce store do! We want you to take full control on what can be displayed or not at your Blogger store via your own customizations. This way you are in full control, not dependable on an e-commerce shopping cart plug-in/widget. You can easily adapt/incorporate the functionality at your own Blogger template designed/builds too!
