Is there a way to add a shopping cart to the individual items in a set?
I would like to be able to sell my photos off my web site.
When my viewers click on an image in a set and the lightbox opens can I add a link to purchase via paypal?
The PayPal button would need to be displayed in the section of the lightbox that holds the Flickr photo description.
Unfortunately Flickr does not allow you to put HTML forms in the photo descriptions so there is not a solution right now with customizing code.
In a future rSlickr Flickr release it could work as follows:
1. You put a section at the end of each photo description on Flickr with the product id and the price eg (paypal: id=img4646&price=99)
2. Slickr Flickr then strips the paypal section out the description and injects an HTML form with a paypal button and the price.
This would work for any lightbox that is able to handle HTML descriptions.(see LightBox comparison chart)
Storing PayPal Details on Flickr
Would you okay with having the paypal section at the end of each of your photo descriptions?
If you did not want to show the price on Flickr then you could simply have a Paypal button ID instead however you would then need to set up every one of your photos on PayPal with a different button (or at least set up a different button for each different price point).
Interim Solution Using jQuery
With the current version of Slickr Flickr you could achieve the same affect by writing some custom jQuery that runs once the page has loaded, to inject the PayPal buttons into the photo descriptions that appear in the lightbox.
Interim Solution Using PHP
You could also achieve the same affect by running a PHP filter at the ‘the_content’ WordPress hook the injects the PayPal button into the photo descriptions
