Adding Products to the Order Page
Add the "Print Now" to a Web Page
The Print Now add-on enables you to offer items for sale on your website.
When you are on the web page where you would like the items for sale to appear and are logged on as an Administrator, you will select the EDIT option. Next, click the paper/pencil icon. This will take you to the Edit record for your page. On this screen put your cursor in the Copy box, click on the Add-on drop down menu and select Print Now. An image of the Contensive logo will appear in the Copy Box. Click OK at the top of the page to save the add-on to your webpage.
Product categories are used to specify order options for each product, such as printing options, finishing, ink color, etc.
ADD/EDIT a Category
To add product categories, login to the website and go to ADMIN. Click on MANAGE ADD-ONS and then ECOMMERCE. You will then click on ITEM CATEGORIES to add the options that go with the product items, including printing options, finishing, ink color, etc.

You may also enter a standard item within each category. For example, for ink color, you may select black & white as the standard. This means that if the buyer does not specify a color choice, black & white will be the default choice.
If you want to add product images, click on the IMAGES tab, and then click CHOOSE FILE to get images from your computer. You can make the image any size you wish, but we recommend a size of approximately 400 X 400 pixels for the IMAGE field. Next to THUMBNAIL field repeat this process to upload the smaller image that will appear in the item listings. We recommend that you keep all of the thumbnail images the same size for design clarity and no larger than 75 X 75 pixels. Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
