Ultimately, we will move away from PayPal completely. For now, we’ve moved MOSTLY away. You shopping cart will now be housed right on our site until you decide you’re ready to proceed to payment. Payments will still be handled through PayPal (as always, you don’t need a PayPal account to pay – just a credit card.) Basically, our cart will handle all your items and PayPal just handles the final total and your payment information. It’s not a complete escape from PayPal, but it’s very close and we think it will eliminate many of the PayPal related headaches some of you have experienced in the past.
The post below will offer your some helpful tips and screenshots to get your more acquainted with the new cart and checkout process.
As soon you add something to your cart, you will be taken to this new page.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you add something to your cart and you see the old cart page (example shown left) – your order will get lost in PayPal! Try going back to the Blue Buddha home page and clicking on the “Buy Supplies” link. Give us a call or shoot us an email if the problem consists so that we can help you with your order try to track down the issue.
Here you an update quantities of items by changing the number in the field under QTY and clicking the blue “Update Cart” button.
You can also remove items from your cart by clicking the “remove” link under the quantity field.
Once you have everything you need and are ready to checkout, you must first select your country to determine shipping charges. Use the dropdown labeled “Select Your Country” to do this.
Once you have selected your country, you will be given shipping options. You may choose to change your shipping method here if you like.
If you have accidentally chosen the wrong country, simply click the link that says “change your country” and select again.
After you have selected you country and your preferred shipping method, click the big red “Checkout” button. You will be taken to a page that will let you review your order before going to PayPal to enter your payment information.
It is important to review your order on this page before going to PayPal as PayPal will not display your cart items. It simply handles your payment. If as you review you order you notice something you’d like to change, simple click the back button on your browser or click on “View Cart” near the top of your screen to go back and edit your cart contents.
Once your order looks good, hit the big yellow PayPal button to complete your payment.
