This is just a "Preview" of the upcoming PayPal Minicart Extension by myself. It is still a work in progress but is about 95% complete just a few ends to tidy up in the extension and finish writing the pdf. I will be supplying the extension "Free" to all users of WYSIWYG Web Builder 8.5.1 the reason being that is has been built with "Extension Builder 4.0.1. If all goes to plan it will be released by the weekend.

I make no apoligies to all other builders who may have spent time building there own version of the cart, and have a charge attached. I just feel that Pablo has provided me with excellent tools to make Web Sites and extensions with and this is my way of saying thanks to him and the community for using my extensions in the past,present and in the future while I can still make them.

The Mini Cart is a great way to improve your PayPal integration by creating an overlay which appears as a user adds products to their cart. It’s a simple change that creates a wonderful new experience for your website!

Here are just a couple of screenshots

Same here BaconFries. I have delayed a project in anticipation of your rewrite on this extension and know it will perform brilliantly like all your other extensions. You are so appreciated.

Thank you all for your patience & support for the extension, it is almost complete. The hardest part is the writing of the user PDF, as you can see of the screenshot of the extensions properties, there is a lot to cover, so I just want to make sure everything is in place. The more experienced (Advanced) user shouldnt have any trouble using, but for a new user I am sure there will be many questions, so it is better to be safe than sorry and write as much as I can in the PDF again thanks.

Just advice get a glass that is recomended if you are sitting too much in front of PC I have one (good for protecting and have headache) also always have two litres of natural water beside whenever you are sitting in front of PC.

@ adex1 Sorry for not replying sooner. I do have a working version, that I have gave to a couple of other users/members for testing. They reported back to me some issues, as of lately I havent had a great deal of time to fix these. I am also having vision problems, so I am trying not to spend to many hours sitting in front of a PC working on old and new extensions, Thank you for your suggestions about not sitting too long in front of PC and making sure I have plenty fluid intake while working. Hopefully I will be able to look at the issues with this extension and fix, once this is sorted I will release for all.

I have recently started work on this extension again. The issues that were present with positioning have been ironed out. I will now need to test thoroughly before I can release. Some features I may have to remove during testing as they might not be compatible with the minicart js file. Once testing iscompletye I will need to werite a PDF file that will explain many of the features and how they are used. At present I dnt have a fibal release date but I do hope to try and release asap.

Hey BC - sorry to hear about your health mate - I trust you've made a fully recovery! 8)

This is an AWESOME plug in and exactly what I needed when I did a recent eCommerce sight for a client - love the multiple fields and the cart content display - looking forward to seeing it completed (no pressure also :D) (and there is no doubt that there is a lot of us in here that overstay our computer time - me included (occupational and obsessive habit :D :roll: :oops: )
