Sell on Your Blog: A Simple Way to Add a Buy Button

Add a Buy Button to any website

Netcash Shop is a flexible eCommerce widget that makes selling online simple. You have many different options available, all managed from 1 central Netcash Shop control panel. All you need is a browser and internet connection, or download the app to sell-on-the-go.

You can use the WordPress or WIX plugin for Netcash Shop to add your Shop to any existing website, and you can use the Facebook plugin to open your Facebook or Instagram Store. If you’re selling on marketplaces you can also add your shopfront to the platform. You can sell online, across multiple platforms simultaneously.

The opportunities are endless, you can increase your reach and grow your business faster than ever.

One of the great features that Netcash Shop offers, is the “Buy Button”. This easy-to-use tool is great for talented bloggers that haven’t quite set up a business yet, or prefer to sell directly from multiple blogs.

In short, the Buy Button is an embeddable product template or product card complete with checkout via your Netcash Shop account. You can add your product card to any website or blog and allow customers to purchase your products in just 1 click without having to leave the site or blog to checkout.

In this blog post, we will show you how easy it is to use the Buy Button and how you can use it to boost your business and make some sales.

Sell from your blog using a Buy Button

There are a few ways to make money by selling from your blog. The fastest and easiest way to do this is to add a Netcash Shop Buy Button.

The Buy Button is good looking little widget that you add to specific pages on your blog by simply copy & pasting a short piece of code. The word code sounds scary, but it isn’t – remember that Netcash Shop is the easiest (in my opinion) to use eCommerce shopping cart or widget available.

When you add the code to the page, you will be able to see product information like the product images, the product description, product price, and you can even add the quantity to purchase. Our Buy Button has a few different layout styles for you to choose from so you can choose how much information you want to display on your blog.

When you add the widget to your blog or website, it will adjust automatically to look authentic and true to your blog’s colours. It will look as if it had always been there.

While your customers are on your blog, they can add to cart and proceed to checkout without leaving the page. The widget is designed to keep your customers on the blog while they make a purchase to help them feel secure and increase your conversions.

Netcash Shop makes it easy to sell one or multiple products across many platforms simultaneously, by embedding your products into your blog posts. Why wouldn’t you want to sell your products right where your content is and where your readers already are.

Here is our step-by-step setup which will teach you how to create a Buy Button for your blog:
