Fred,

It's been a long time since I used JUST PayPal buttons on my web site. But I do know there is a way that PP can be used so it will let you add more than 1 item to an order. You are shooting yourself in the foot with PP fees the way things are set-up now. Every order has the 0.35 fee + %. If you figure out how to let the customer continue shopping you will only have 1 - 0.35 fee instead of 5.

The other option would be to set up a "Mal's Cart". The buttons from them are simple and will let you add items to your cart. That's what I have on my site. They will work with PayPal and Google Checkout / Wallet, tho most people seem to use PP.

Actually my site needs a lot of work currently, but at least when someone figures it out they can order as much as they want before they have to check out.

Carol

Hi Carol,

Thanks for the input. We are using PayPal on the blog as a quick and dirty solution while we set up the online store.

People have just been ordering one at a time, and we have been collating orders.

It's good incentive to get the store finished!

Fred, it's great to see you get the new cherries out! Also, I really like the idea of supporting the original hybridizer (in this case, Millard) with a royalty! Best of luck with your venture!

Thanks Fred, I just placed my order. I received Capt. Lucky from Millard via Seedsavers years ago and it's been in my garden ever since, FABULOUS tomato, gorgeous coloration. Best of luck with the mission, I'm a believer and will order all I can, thanks.

Thanks everyone for your orders.

Steve, We are very excited to get the new cherries out too. It is just the start with regard to striped cherries. That is the area in which we are farthest along.

That packaging must have inspired the USPS employees...three days across the country is insanely fast.

Blush and Maglia Rosa are available at Seeds of Change. There will definitely be at least 2 more new elongated cherries available next winter.

Ordered.... the three new releases and the elongated varieties from SoC.

That makes 90 new varieties for 2013. I need a 12 step program.
