Buy Now Program


Our Buy Now! program is just another way we're making it easier than ever to sell your products on-line. If you have an existing website, you can add a full-featured cart complete with:

  • Real-time, secure transactions;
  • Shipping and tax calculations;
  • Credit card verification.
If you can "copy and paste," your website will be commerce enabled within minutes. It's the perfect solution for those who want total control over the look and feel of your catalog, it's completely integrated into your site!

How to install "Buy Now" button

Step 1:
Open your store in SAMarketPlace.

We'll give you a username and password which will allow you to add your catalog information to the database. (Product Name, Code, Price, Description and Shipping Cost)


Prepare html pages that you will use to add "Buy Now" button.

Step 4:

Install the "Buy Now" button by pasting the html code near the item. The "Buy Now" button is in reality a small form. The form action points to SAMarketPlace, the data sent to SAMarketPlace is what is in the hidden variable "item", and the submit button is the "Buy Now" image.

Buy Now

<FORM action="" method="post">

<INPUT type="image" border="0" SRC="images/buynow2.gif" ALT="Buy Now" WIDTH=61 HEIGHT=19 BORDER=0 value="Get It">


The first line opens the form and points it to SAMarketPlace. Item ID is what you can get from the backend catalog. On the main menu, click on Quick Review/Edit Items, you will see ID for each item. ReturnURL is the page you will insert "Buy Now" button.

The second line is your submit button. The value field is "Get It". If you are thinking that the src="images/buynow2.gif" could be some other image, you'd be right. Any image may be used to customize your page.

The third line is end form.

When someone orders one of your products, we take care of all the credit card processing and, once the order has been approved (in a matter of seconds), you're notified by fax or email. All you have to do is fill the order and provide us with proof of shipping, then we transfer the funds to your account or cut a check. It really is that simple!

If you're a San Antonio or area business, we'll put you in our SAMarketPlace at no extra charge to increase your exposure to shoppers!
