Quick Shopping Cart Help

Displaying PDFs, flash files, and images

You can link to or embed PDFs and SWFs from your Quick Shopping Cart® Media Gallery in fields that accept HTML. Additionally, you can display images from your Media Gallery in fields that accept HTML by using the img src tag. This lets you further customize your storefront's appearance and give your shoppers a better buying experience.

For more information about linking to and embedding PDFs, Flash® files, and/or images, see Why would I use the 'Use as link' feature in Quick Shopping Cart?.
