editSuite Help - How do I use the Shopping Cart module?

You can use the Shopping cart module to to sell items on your website. This module is located under the “Edit content” tab within your editSuite. There are two available options for this module: Fotomoto shopping cart and the standard liveBooks shopping cart. 

1. For selling photography products on your website we recommend using the Fotomoto shopping cart. The Fotomoto shopping cart works via the Fotomoto dashboard, which is separate from your liveBooks editSuite. Once you enable it, you’ll set up your Fotomoto dashboard with pricing and products, and this will be reflected on your liveBooks site with “buy” buttons in your portfolios for those images that you have listed “for sale” within the Fotomoto dashboard. For instructions on how to set up and use the Fotomoto shopping cart please click here

2. For selling non-photography products such as jewelry, furniture, books, etc., we recommend that you choose the liveBooks shopping cart (or some other 3rd party shopping cart). In order to enable the liveBooks shopping cart please follow the instructions below.
