Add a Samples Button?

I am trying out cs cart for the first time. I am trying to figure out how to make a button on my product pages that will add a sample of the item to the shoppers cart. My current shopping cart software (prostores) requires a cumbersome process to add a sample to each product page. I am looking for a simple way to make samples at a fixed price availible to any customer. Any suggestions? :confused: Thanks!

I’m not sure what you samples would consist of but could you simply add a global option that would have options to add a samples to that page? Maybe a checkbox for “add sample” if just one item is needed. Or a radio or pull down box if there are several sample options needed.



If this won’t work, please further explain and I will try and help.

I am looking for a button just like this site has, [URL=“http://www.outdoorfabricsdirect.com/stripes/woven-stripes/davidson-redwood.html”]http://www.outdoorfabricsdirect.com/stripes/woven-stripes/davidson-redwood.html[/URL].



I am looking to offer samples on select products without having to create an entirely different product to be the samples, but cloning items makes this task easier, but by the look of that site they do not have to do that. Thanks! :smiley:

It looks like that site just created a promotion than put some code behind a button to apply the promotion directly to the cart. I’m not a coder so can’t help you with how it’s done on the button. I would think, though, that you still have to have the sample in the backend as an item because the promotion has to call the item from somewhere to put it in the cart.



Not sure if this helps or not…

It appears as if they have just created the samples by creating an additional product “option” for each of their products.

Could you explain the “option” a bit more, i’m a bit new to CS cart.:oops:

I am also looking for a similar thing, and I am struggling finding help, even paid help to sort this out - Its only for a few MP3’s I have made, and I just cant get it to work.



Well, I can get the MP3 to load, but only if I enter the html to drive the flash manually in the product description… this is not ideal.



I tried calling stuff in php, but just cant figure out where to place the code so it appears on every product page and in the category view

has any one built this addon ill pay for it please message me
