You can set up a new product in the Seller Dashboard in a matter of minutes. We support a wide range of fulfilment methods and pricing options. Follow the 12 steps below to set up a simple downloadable product that doesn’t require a software license:
On your test store page add the following code just before the closing </body> tag to import the Paddle.js library and run the checkout setup method:
Please do not self-host Paddle.js, this will prevent you from receiving bug fixes and new features.
Note: Your Paddle Vendor ID can be found on the settings page of your Paddle account, within the ‘Integrations’ tab.
Any clickable element on your page can be made into a buy button by adding the paddle_button class and specifying the ID of the product you wish to use in the checkout:
<a href="#!" class="paddle_button" data-product="12345">Buy Now!</a>
Note: You can find the product ID by clicking the Checkout Link button in your Seller Dashboard and copying the Checkout Product ID number.
Click the green buy button and you will see an overlay checkout displayed on top of your test store page. To test the whole checkout without making a real payment, you can create a product coupon.
If the checkout fails to display, check the browser console for any error messages. If you continue to have problems, get in touch with our support team.
