Configuration of SimpleCaddy is a bit more complicated amd may lead to surprising results sometimes. Here is how to set up a basic store using PayPal as a payment gateway.
Let's start with a few preset options.
Of course for the PayPal checkout, you will need your PayPal credentials.
SimpleCaddy can send confirmation email in Html and in Text format. The system is simple (of course) and takes the following parameters:
If you want to send order confirmation emails to your customers, set the "Send confirmation email..." to Yes. If you send these out, you may also get a copy yourself and/or send a copy to your shipping department to notify them of an upcoming shipment. The "Send copies..." field must contain valid email addresses on a ONE PER LINE basis. SimpleCaddy will take these one by one and add them as copies to the email being sent out.
Select the format of the email to send out. Html gives a far better result than standard text, but some customers do not wish to receive email in html format. SimpleCaddy sends out in either format, but not in both.
Use content as email. This will send a content you create as email. Set it to "No" to keep the standard (but not very good looking!) email as order confirmation. Set it to "Yes" and you should indicate the ID (here 44) of the content you intend to use as email body. Inside this email content you can use two special codes to indicate where to display the header info of the order and where to display the content of the order. Use the variables #orderheading# and #orderdetails# for this. Don't forget to add the ## around the variable names. You do not need to publish this content anywhere on your site.
Attention: Setting this to an erroneous Content ID may lead to loss of confidential data! The email sent out is the page with Content ID (here 44). If you do not want to use this feature, set the "Use content as email" to "No" and save the configuration.
