If desired, you can also add a button to buy both products with one click. This is a paid upgrade to the Better Together Promotional Page.

Note that for the Add Both to Cart button to work, both items in the Better Together linkage must be products, and neither may have attributes. (In other words, add_prod_to_prod and add_twoforone_prod linkages are supported.)

The Better Together Promotional Page with Add Both to Cart is $20.00. Buy Now! Note that for Add Both to Cart to work, both items in the Better Together linkage must be products, and neither may have attributes. The discount will still be displayed but the button will not if either item is a category or a product with attributes.

Note that Add Both to Cart works best with Discount Preview. This way, customers can see their discount on the shopping cart page instead of having to wait for the Checkout Payment page.

Installation Instructions:

  1. Back up everything! Try this in a test environment prior to installing it on a live shop.

Note: If you are using Zen Cart 1.5.5 or higher, your template name will be "responsive_classic" if you have not changed it.
    Note that if you have already modified
    ./includes/templates/custom/sideboxes/tpl_categories.php
    
    you will need to merge the changes to this file.

FAQ

Q: What's the difference between the Promotional Page with Add Both to Cart, the Better Together Centerbox and the I Want Both button, and Buy Both Now?
A: They're all separate products. Buy Both Now works with the marketing text on the product info page; Add Both to Cart works on the Promotional page, and the Centerbox (and the I Want Both button) works on the main page.

Q: I'd like to edit the promotional page in the Define Pages Editor, but it doesn't work. How do I do this?
A: Copy the file includes/languages/english/html_includes/custom/define_<page-name>.php to the parent directory includes/languages/english/html_includes/ Then the Define Pages editor will let you edit the one in "custom."
