Shopping cart is the result of work of two system actions: List and Cart Toolbar. System action List is used to display information from the data source in form of a list. It can be used separately or in conjunction with the action Cart toolbar, allowing to create a simple online store.
Prior to working on the site, you must configure the system (s) of payment. Younicycle works with Google Checkout, Paypal Express checkout and LiqPay payment systems. To set up payment systems, choose from the main menu Tools-> Checkout settings. To add settings, click Add Payment system.
Payment system settings
Field Name defines the name of a given set of settings. This name is unique within an account and used by GYRE editor or custom actions for loading the payment system settings:
$ CheckoutSettings = getCheckoutSettings ('settings_set_name');
Field Server type defines the type of settings:
* Sandbox is used to test payment in Google and Paypal
* Checkout is used for payment in Google
* Sale is used for payment in Paypal system
Number of payment systems' settings is not limited, ie You can add several settings for Paypal Express checkout and several for Google checkout.

List of products can be in form of a table (Table), query (Query) or presentation (View).
Example of product list
Mandatory fields are:
* Identifier (ID)
* Name of the product (service)
* A short description
You can also add a File field to store the image of a product. This field is optional. The column names can be arbitrary.
Step 2. Customize the output.

In List properties choose a datasource (property Datasource) (in this example - a product table).
You will also need to choose the columns to be displayed in the product list, using property Datafield. To select more than one column, press and hold Ctrl. The order of column selection will be saved. Then you should compare custom and system columns, so the system would "know" what data is stored in specific columns, and could work with this data. For comparison, use the property Fields mapping. It is necessary to map the fields from the left side of the dialog with the fields from the right side.

This area will contain buttons to control the basket on the status of the basket and a button payment systems. The first step is to associate the Cart toolbar with domain List.
