POWr eCommerce is a simple but powerful plugin that lets you sell almost anything online - products, services, subscriptions, and even digital downloads or files. Choose to sell just one product, or many. And receive payments directly through your PayPal account.
To create a new eCommerce plugin, log in to your POWr.io account, click Create New, and select eCommerce from the popup. Or just click here. A new page will appear where you can create your eCommerce plugin. The POWr Editor will appear on the left hand side of the screen. Here you will create and edit your plugin. Once it's ready, you can add it to your website or Facebook page, or share it over social media/email with a shareable link.
To receive payments through a POWr eCommerce plugin, you need to connect the plugin to your PayPal account. In the Connect menu enter your PayPal account email address into the field provided.
To add a new product to eCommerce, open the Content menu >> click +Add Product. A new product entry will appear with menus for you to enter the product's info, pricing, images, and options.
Different Types of Products
POWr eCommerce lets you sell physical and digital products, like a song or a file, that customers can download.
To sell a digital file, open the Info submenu for the product, and toggle on Digital Download. Then upload the file you'd like to sell.
You can also create subscriptions for things like service agreements or memberships. This can be determined on a product by product basis in the Content menu of your eCommerce plugin.
To set up a subscription, open the Pricing submenu for a product, and set Type of Purchase to Subscription. You can then select how often and how much a customer will be charged, and create an optional trial period with different pricing specifics.
You have two options for how to treat shipping when selling physical goods. Shipping fees will be displayed once your customer has selected options for a product, and is preparing for checkout.
Per Item Shipping
Per item shipping lets you set specific shipping prices for each item you sell. This is good products that are difficult or expensive to ship. The shipping price per item will be charged for each item ordered. So if you charge $10 to ship a particular chair, and a customer orders 4 chairs, the total shipping fee will be $40.
You can set up per item shipping in the Pricing submenu for a product. Per Item Shipping must be set up individually for each item you sell.
Per Order Shipping
Per order - allows you to add a flat shipping fee to any order. This same fee will be applied to all customer orders, regardless of how many products they purchase. This is a good idea if your products are all very similar, or if your products do not cost much to package and ship.
You can set up per order shipping in the Shipping menu. Just set the switch to On, and enter a shipping fee to be added to all orders. This will eliminate your ability to add per item shipping fees under each product, and those boxes will disappear.
