Plug and Play Cart

Our built in Plug-and-Play shopping cart empowers sellers will a simple yet
robust solution to sell products and services on their website. Using our
Plug-and-Play cart you can create products that have attributes such as
tangible(physical), intangible(virtual/downloadable), recurring (with or
without startup fee), non-recurring and variable product options.

The Plug-and-Play cart solution is generally what is being utilized when you
create products, shipping methods and coupons in your 2Checkout account. When
creating a tangible product, a shipping method must also be created so that
the buyer knows how the item will be delivered to them. The buyer will be able
to view all shipping methods that apply to them when they are checking out so
that they can choose their preferred method. Products can have variable
product options which will be selectable once the buyer is passed in to your
custom checkout page. A coupon code field will also be present if the you have
active coupons in your account.

Once you have setup your products and shipping methods, integration is a easy
as copying the provided HTML snippet provided for a product and pasting it
into a page on your site to create a “Buy” button. When a buyer clicks on a
“Buy” button they will be passed into our checkout to either complete the
checkout process or they also have the option to navigate back to your site to
continue shopping and add more products to their cart before checking out.

Please Note: When a tangible product is ordered, the invoice must be marked
as shipped in order to settle the sale and receive the funds from the buyer.
Sales that only contain products marked as intangible will settle
automatically within 48 hours of being placed.
