Create a Buy Now Button for Selling Items via PayPal in BaseKit

As of June 19, 2013, BaseKit is not available on new Shared accounts; however, HostGator Website Builder is offered as a replacement.

You can sell products on your website using PayPal. It's as easy as adding a new widget to your site.

To get started, open Basekit and follow the instructions below:

  1. Open the E-commerce section of your widgets panel.
  2. Drag and drop the PayPal Buy Now widget to an appropriate location on your page.
    • If you have not previously done so, you will be prompted to enter your PayPal details so that payments can be made to the correct location.
  3. Click the gear icon to bring up the widget settings drawer.
  4. Provide the name, price and shipping fee (if applicable) for the product.
  5. Click Save to confirm your changes.

Once you have added your products to your website, you may wish to improve your search rankings by using Basekit's built in SEO tools.
