Thanks for answering so soon!
The problem was that I was not allowed to add my product! I kept getting the message that I had to complete my profile first, with no way to get to my profile page from THAT page.
I finally backtracked until I found a way to get to my profile page, where I found a couple of fields that were empty. And I had completely filled out those fields before I hit "submit". But this "saving process" didn't really "save". That was the problem with that.
Yes, I got the HTML code. But I got the code for the "Buy Now" button as I have only one product to sell.
I have inserted the code into my website, but not yet actually published the website. The "Buy Now" button appeared and I was able to move it to the desired location. However I am not sure the code will work after I figure out how to upload my PDF file. I never had the chance to do that . . . or I missed my chance because I wasn't looking in the right place.
While trying to find a way to upload my e-book, I ended up opting to have my e-book listed in the e-junkie store! I hope I didn't make a mistake and cost myself a monthly fee, or anything like that.
Still trying to figure out how to get my e-book uploaded. There doesn't seem to be any obvious way to do this . . . so far!
This whole process is supposed to take "less than a minute" (they say), but has taken me so far 1/2 a day, and it's still not done! How dumb am I?
Feeling pretty stupid,
