Question about Shipping Units

I have entered a value for "Shipping Units" for each product, but it does not become part of my "Buy Now" button. The code for a typical product is:

<form method="post" action="http://ww5.aitsafe.com/cf/add.cfm">
<input type="hidden" name="userid" value="79148798">
<input type="hidden" name="price" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="product[]" value="">
<select name="productpr">
<option value="Durolast S-3072:67.04">
Durolast ($67.04)<option value="Maxilast S-3072:130.15">
Maxilast ($130.15)</option>
</select>
&nbsp;<p>
<input type="submit" value="Buy Now">
</p>
</form>

I am using the Multiple Options Add-to-Cart Form.

How can I tell Mal's how much an item weighs?

Thanks!

Thanks Sam

RE: Question about Shipping Units

The "Free" version of the "Multiple Options Add-to-Cart Form" Excel file utility does not include all the shopping cart parameters. It was developed for a simplified solution. You can however modify the formulas in the spreadsheet to include the other form variables. In the meantime, you will have to manually add the "units" form variable to your form as shown below:

"units" form variable:

<input type="hidden" name="units" value="20">

Below is your code with the "units" form variable added using an example value of 20:

<form method="post" action="http://ww5.aitsafe.com/cf/add.cfm">
<input type="hidden" name="userid" value="79148798">
<input type="hidden" name="units" value="20">
<input type="hidden" name="price" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="product[]" value="">
<select name="productpr">
<option value="Durolast S-3072:67.04">
Durolast ($67.04)<option value="Maxilast S-3072:130.15">
Maxilast ($130.15)</option>
</select>
&nbsp;<p>
<input type="submit" value="Buy Now">
</p>
</form>

There are other form variables you may want to consider or include if needed, such as:

<input type="hidden" name="scode" value="ABCO-15TTFB">
<input type="hidden" name="noqty" value="0">
<input type="hidden" name="units" value="20">
<input type="text" name="qty" size="3" value="1">

You can download the new "Multiple Options Add-to-Cart Form for Mal's Cart" spreadsheet that contains all the Add-to-Cart variables. Now you can choose any or all of variables to use.

I also noticed that youe website opens the shopping cart in the body frame. Therefore you should also make your "View Cart" and "Checkout" buttons also open the cart in the body frame instead of a popup window. All you have to do is change the publishing option for the shopping cart display.
