How do I add the Pay with Amazon code block to my customized "view_cart.html" template?


If you would like to use Pay with Amazon, and have previously made customizations to your store's view_cart.html template, you will need to consider the following two options in order to have the Pay with Amazon function appear on your checkout page.

Option 1: Favor the global file from the common folder.

The easiest method to use will be to remove your customized template file and just favor the file that comes from the folder. To do this, simply FTP to your store's FTP access and navigate to web/assets/template/[them_folder] (where [theme_folder] is your store's chosen theme.

Once there, simply rename or delete the existing view_cart.html file

The store will then favor the global view_cart.html file that is served from the common folder.

Option 2: Add the necessary coding to your customized template file.

On the other hand, if you do not wish to lose whatever customizations you may have on the view cart page, then the second option would be to manually add the necessary coding to the page yourself.

To do this:

  1. Go to Settings >Design >Themes & Styles
  2. At the top right of the page, click on the "More" button and select "Edit Template (HTML)"
  3. Locate your custom "view_cart.html" file and click on its Action Wheel to select "edit"
  4. Add the following code to the template between the existing <!--END: checkoutByAmazon-> and <!--START: shopatron-> tags
    <!--START: PayWithAmazon->

    <script type='text/javascript'>
window.onAmazonLoginReady = function () {
<script type='text/javascript' src='[amazonpay_sandbox]js/Widgets.js'></script> <!-- Place this where you would like the Payment Button to appear ->
<div id="AmazonPayButton"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var authRequest;
var amazonOrderReferenceId;
OffAmazonPayments.Button("AmazonPayButton", "[amazonpay_sellerid]", {
type: "PwA",
color: "Gold",
size: "small",
authorization: function () {
var loginOptions = { scope: 'profile payments:widget payments:shipping_address', popup: true };
authRequest = amazon.Login.authorize(loginOptions, "[amazonpay_domain]/checkout_one.asp?wid=3");
onError: function (error) {
<!--END: PayWithAmazon->
