How to get SimpleCaddy up and running in 15 minutes?

For that you will need a few things.

1.

Knowledge of Joomla and a working Joomla installation

2.

A working PayPal account (for checkout)

3.

Products to sell (obviously)

4.

Pages where you praise the merits of your products. These pages are normal Joomla
pages, they are the basis of SimpleCaddy.



SimpleCaddy comes in 2, 3 or 4 parts, depending on what you install. The minimum
installation is the component and the plugin. Bot
h are in the package you downloaded. The
following list is a “skeleton” installation but will set you up in a few minutes. Probably

faster
than it took to write this document.

1.

Start with downloading the package from
the wiki


2.

Unzip the package on your har
d drive on your computer. Anywhere will do, as long
as you can find all the files.

3.

Go into Joomla administration to the menu Extensions > Install/Uninstall

4.

Select the component (com_simplecaddy.zip) from your hard drive and upload
(install) it on your site

5.

Do the same for the plugin (plg_simplecaddy.zip) and for the module
(mod_simplecaddy.zip)

6.

Go to Extensions > Plugin manager and find simplecaddy in the list.

7.

Enable the plugin

8.

Now go to the Components menu and click SimpleCaddy

9.

Go to the Configuration men
u and fill in your personal information, most important
for now is your PayPal account name and the currency in which your PayPal account
is held

10.

Make sure you select “Use PayPal for checkout”

11.

Save the configuration, then press the green arrow to go back t
o the main menu of
SimpleCaddy

12.

Now create your product in the Products section of SimpleCaddy. Fill in as much as
you know about your product. Most fields are necessary for a normal sale.

13.

Save the product and remember the product code. For this example I w
ill use the
code “sox123” (without quotes).

14.

Now go to the menu Content > Article Manager

15.

Find the article that speaks about the product you just created. If you don’t have an
article yet, now is the time to create it.

16.

In that article you will now add the f
ollowing code:

17.

{ simplecaddy code=sox123 } (for demonstration purposes the curly brackets are
here surrounded by spaces, don’t do that yourself) Obviously the sox123 will be your
code for your product.

18.

Save the article


2

19.

Go to the frontend of your site by
clicking the “Preview” link on the top right side of
your screen.

20.

Go to the page you just created.

21.

The page should now show an Add to Cart button with the description and pricing of
your product.

22.

Click the Add to Cart button

23.

You will now see the Cart conte
nts

24.

Click the Confirm button

25.

You will now see the standard checkout information screen

26.

Fill in all info and confirm again

27.

Now you will see a PayPal logo to pay.

28.

Clicking the logo leads you to PayPal, and you are now ready to spend some money .
