For each product from cafepress on my site in a categories with other company, I would like them to link cafepress. I mean the exactly url. Instead of "in chart" it will link to the exactly page to order it from cafepress.

The link that I put in the "products url" when adding a product is the one where I want the product to go to when people click "in cart". But only for cafepress manufactor. So when people click "in chart" for all cafepress manufator it go to the the link list in the "products url."

Try explaining a little more clearly as I still do not grasp what you want to do

Do you have a product and you want that product to go in the cart but you also want customer to be able to visit the manufacturer's product page for that exact item?

I um..don't want it to go in the cart. I want it to go to the manufactor website.

Where it say below a product..

For more information, please visit this products webpage.

 

I was like "add to cart" to link to the same link that "webpage" link to...the link will link to the exact page to check out at cafepress.

 

I only want those with cafepress manufactur to do that.

I take it your not going to sell anything on the site, cause doing what you want will set off all kind of alerts in SSL.

Simply place a href link to the manu. or product page

 

<a href"http://www.your link.com/>your link name</a>

Do you mean linking to the manufacturers order page for the product? The way you do for an affiliate link to amazon for example? Someone had a store in the My Store forum earlier this year that had 2 buttons side by side - one to buy from thier store in Hong Kong & the other to buy from amazon.

 

This is the link to the thread

That is interesting, but it uses the Amazon API and won't work for Cafe Press. To my knowledge there is NOT a way to automatically send the shopper to Cafe Press unless you build the link by hand for each item.

 

In my shop, I take the order and process it by hand with Cafe Press.

 

Cafe Press doesn't support custom stores, they want you to use thier site.

[no external urls in signatures please, kthanks]

Just because cafepress doesn't support custom stores doesn't mean we can't adjust our site daily to make sure the url are correct. I have a feeling that cafepress would do what they can to make sure the url don't link back to their site but that is not stoping me is it? Nope.

 

Maybe I could do something like

if site url is given

go to that url..or something like that but I don't know much about php.

And yes, I have a ssl.

Well, looks to me like you asked if there was a contrib to do this and it looks like there is not. As a Cafe Press store owner myself I can tell you that they change things when they feel like it and don't always tell the shop owners when they are changing the urls. You can point the product "more info" url to the cafe press page for your product, but connecting to their shopping cart will be difficult and not reliable.

 

I suggest going to the Cafe Press forums for assistance or calling cafe press customer assistance.

 

Let us know if you find out anything useful, there are many oscommerce shop owners that have Cafe Press shops also.
