 +====== Mal's E-Commerce Instructions ======
  
 +This is a set of instructions on how to integrate some aspects of Mal's E-Commerce into your website. ​ Mal's E-Commerce is a free shopping cart solution available at http://​www.mals-e.com.
 +
 +===== Downloadable Products =====
 +
 +==== Adding to Mal's ====
 +
 +  - Login at www.mals-e.com
 +  - Click on the //Cart Setup// tab
 +  - Click on //Advanced Settings// then //​Downloadable Products//
 +  - Enter the skew number in the //Code// box
 +  - Enter the //​Description//​ and //Price//
 +  - Leave the //Units// field blank
 +  - Enter an HTML link to the MP3 file into the //Link// box (see below).
 +  - Click the //Add// button.
 +
 +Here's an example of what the link should look like.
 +
 +  <a href="​http://​www.example.com/​product.mp3">​Download Product</​a>​
 +
 +To break that down a little bit more, it's in the following format. ​ Just replace //[url]// below with the URL to the downloadable file and replace //[text]// with the text you want to appear. ​ Clicking on //[text]// will then take you to //[url]//.
 +
 +  <a href="​[url]">​[text]</​a>​
 +
 +Your downloadable product is now managed by the shopping cart and is available for purchase.
 +
 +==== Buy Button on Your Website ====
 +
 +Now add a buy button to the product page on your website. ​ Just copy and paste the following code into the raw HTML of your web page.  Replace //​[server]//​ with the name of the server you were assigned, replace the //userid// value with your user ID at Mal's, and replace the //pcode// value with the skew number you entered at Mal's.
 +
 +<code html>
 +<form action=http://​[server].aitsafe.com/​cf/​add.cfm method=post>​
 +<input type=hidden name=userid value=[userid]>​
 +<input type=hidden name=pcode value=[pcode]>​
 +<input type=submit value="​Buy Now">​
 +</​form>​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +===== Shippable Products =====
 +
 +==== Buy Button on Your Website ====
 +
 +For shippable products, there is no need to enter any product information on the Mals' E-Commerce side.  Instead, you just create buy now links with the information in them.
 +
 +Just copy and paste the following code into the raw HTML of your web page.  Replace the //userid// value with your user ID at Mal's, replace the //product// and //price// values with the short description and price of the item, and replace the //units// value with the weight of this item in ounces.
 +
 +<code html>
 +<form action=http://​ww12.aitsafe.com/​cf/​add.cfm method=post>​
 +<input type="​hidden"​ name="​userid"​ value="​E096838">​
 +<input type="​hidden"​ name="​product"​ value="​Test Product">​
 +<input type="​hidden"​ name="​price"​ value="​9.99">​
 +<input type="​hidden"​ name="​units"​ value="​5">​
 +<input type="​submit"​ value="​Buy Now">​
 +</​form>​
 +</​code>​
