Purchase and Download ATI Materials – Tutorial

Introduction

Access Technology Institute, LLC uses a WordPress Plugin called “Easy Digital Downloads” to sell our training materials.

We upload our training materials to our server and Easy Digital Downloads takes care of the heavy lifting.

Today, I’m going to show you how to add items to your ATI shopping cart, check out via PayPal or Credit Card and download your materials to your personal computer.

I’ll also show you how to unzip the .zip archive file and place your newly purchased training materials on your computer’s Desktop.

For this lesson, I’ve zipped this text file and an audio version of the lesson into a zip file that I’m offering free of charge on the website.

If you want to experiment with PayPal payments live, you can purchase the file for $1.00.

Let’s discuss adding training materials to the shopping cart, purchasing the materials with PayPal, downloading documents, and accessing those documents on your personal computer.

Add Training Materials to the Shopping Cart

Each training course, textbook, and subscription page has a link through which you can add the selected item to your shopping cart.

If, for example, you want to purchase this lesson free or for $1.00, visit www.blind.training/download to select your purchase option.

Select the purchase option you’d like use. When you select a purchase option, an Easy Digital Downloads page opens.

The link to add the lesson to your shopping cart and the Shopping cart checkout link are at the top and in the middle of the page.

The purchase link is preceded by an edit field into which you can insert a number to purchase multiple copies.

To quickly find the purchase link:

  • Use the screen reader command to locate the next edit field
    • JAWS for Windows E
    • NVDA E

There ae two edit fields:

  • A search field
  • An edit-spin box

The edit-spin box is just above the purchase link. If you want to purchase multiple copies, input the number of copies into the edit-spin box.

To add the training materials to the shopping cart:

  • Press TAB once from the edit-spin box
  • Focus is placed on the purchase link
  • Press ENTER

The selected materials are added to the shopping cart.

Repeat these steps on each product page you want to purchase.

After adding the products, navigate to and activate the “Shopping Cart/Checkout” or “Checkout” link.

The Access Technology Institute, LLC shopping cart opens.

The Shopping Cart

The shopping cart page lets you review your purchase and, if applicable, add a discount code.

If ATI is having a sale, activate the “Click to Enter It” link, input the discount code, and press ENTER. The discount is immediately applied.

Read the page thoroughly to insure the products you want to purchase were added and, if applicable, the discount has been applied.

At the bottom of the page are edit fields into which you provide information for PayPal.

  • Email Address
  • First Name
  • Last Name

Activate the “Purchase” button. PayPal takes you to a PayPal log in page.

  • One note on PayPal. If you have one touch payment enabled, PayPal will log in automatically and take you to the payment processing page
  • If you want to pay by credit card, one-touch payment should be disabled for the browser
  • One-touch is browser specific

If you want to continue with PayPal, log in and complete your purchase as usual.

If you want to pay by credit card, ignore the login fields and activate the “Pay with Debit or Credit Card” button.

This button opens the PayPal guest checkout page through which you can pay with a Debit or Credit card, bypassing a PayPal login.

Complete the payment details and complete your purchase.

You’re ready to download the training materials!
