How to use E-junkie to sell on your Web site or blog
E-junkie is not a CMS/storefront, so we don't build a site for you and don't impose any page templates upon you. With E-junkie, you can design and maintain your own Website pages however you wish, with whatever Web design software you wish, using whatever text, images and other content you wish -- that's all entirely up to you.
To add our cart system to your website, you simply copy the ready-made blocks of HTML code we provide in Seller Admin for your View Cart and Add to Cart buttons, or you can copy the code for Buy Now buttons that bypass our shopping cart to take the buyer directly to instant checkout for just one item at a time. Then simply paste those codes into the HTML source code of your own Website pages, wherever you want the purchase buttons to appear among your own layout and content. This means your chosen Web design software should provide some way to edit the raw HTML source of your page, or at least some way to paste-in ready-made HTML code as-is, without altering or modifying the code you paste at all.
If you're not very familiar with HTML, you may find it easier to use your Web page editor's visual-design mode (sometimes called WYSIWYG for "What You See Is What You Get") to type some placeholder text like
XXXXXX wherever you will want the buttons to appear, so when you switch into HTML editing mode, you can look for that placeholder text and replace it with your E-junkie button codes. If the button code seems to get garbled when you save the page, try saving directly from the HTML view after you paste the code, without switching back to visual (WYSISYG) mode first.
Our Getting Started help page is a good place to begin setting up your E-junkie services, so you can get your button codes to start selling on your Website!
Using a Website builder or CMS platform
Below we list some popular Website builder and CMS platforms known to work well with E-junkie, many of which are linked to more specific instructions for pasting our button codes into pages built in that platform.
Online site builder/generator
- GoDaddy Website Builder
- Google Sites
- SharePoint Online
- Yahoo SiteBuilder
Web development software
Content Management System (CMS)
These generally provide a built-in page editor with a way to view/edit or insert HTML, for which our general tips would be useful:
- Any other CMS
Ecommerce site software (e.g., OSCommerce, ZenCart, etc.)
Disable their built-in cart buttons & paste E-junkie button codes into your product details, essentially using their shop software only as a CMS/Storefront builder.
Social networks (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, etc.)
Forums or Newsletters
Use your E-junkie button code (if HTML is allowed) or Text Link (if not).
Classified ad listing sites
- Other classified sites: Use your E-junkie button code (if HTML is allowed) or Text Link (if not).
