Using E-commerce in Forms

E-commerce through Forms

  • Sign into your netAdventist site.
  • Select the Dashboard link at the bottom of the Home page.
  • Select the Website Pages tab from the top of the screen.
  • Click on Forms in left navigation menu.
  • Choose the Add Form Package button on the top right.
  • Enter a title for your form package. Think of this as a folder where you add multiple forms. Select Add Form Package.
  • At the bottom of the page, below "What would you like to do next?", select Add Form to add items to your form package.
  • A box will open where you can add a name to your form. Select Add Form.
  • Select the Add link next to the e-commerce field to add it. The field is added to the Forms Fields preview area.
  • Select Edit next to the e-commerce form you just added.
  • Step 1, What label should appear on this field in the form? Add a name for your e-commerce form.
  • Step 2, netAdventist 3.0 uses Paypal Express, PayPal Pro or for payment. If you need to create a PayPal Express, PayPal Pro or account. Visit the PayPal or sites and create an account. The email used in the contact email field should be the same as the one for your PayPal or account.
  • Step 3, Select the payment account type created by selecting the button and enter the email and API information from your new PayPal or account in fields provided.
  • Step 4, Product Description. Add your payment information, such as name, quantity and price. To do this, use the key below the entry field. The numbers in the key correspond to the descriptions below. Use the concatenation marks to separate each category. By default the product description field has, "No description provided|0.0|0.0|on|0|off|off". Using the key, change fields between the concatenation marks. Ex. Test Product No.1|12.00|8.25|on|1|off|off--where test product represents the name; 12 represents the price; 8.25 is the tax; the textfield where you would enter quantity is on so you can enter a quantity; the default quantity is 1; the quantity field locked is off so a customer can enter a larger amount than one; and the quantity field required is off so a customer doesn't have to enter anything to submit the request.
  • Once you have edited your fields, select Next. Review the item information you entered in step 3 and use the edit for the form field to make any corrections needed. Select Save.
  • The Message to Submitter allows you to create a message that customers will see after they have submitted a form. Use the editor to create a message that will be seen by customers filling it out and submitting it.
  • For a form to work properly, a receiving e-mail must be entered on the e-mail notification page. Enter an e-mail subject, a message, and an e-mail address to receive a submitted form.
  • To add an email, enter a valid email address and a name. Select the Add subscriber button to add the email to the list. Repeat the process to add multiple emails. Select Done.
  • The Form Package you created is automatically saved in draft form. To publish the form package, select Publish.
  • To add a single form, select the Add Form button and follow the same instructions as above for adding a form to a form package.
  • When a customer uses the e-commerce form, the transaction will go to PayPal. After they have made a purchase, an e-mail will be sent to you requesting that you visit your PayPal account and verify the purchase. These responses will go to the e-mail entered in the e-mail notification section when you created your form.
