Thanks for the information. I find you website very very helpful for my blog.

Heather Wright-Porto

Yes, you are right. Now you don't have to worry about switching between views. But in the beginning it was quirky. Thanks, Heather :D

Hi Amanda!
Hmmm…honestly I haven't had any problems with PayPal buttons or my customers. You may want to check out Google Checkout instead. They have payment buttons as well. Sorry you had problems with PayPal, Heather :D

An informative blog! Come back to your blog post, in the HTML view, and Paste the code where you want it located on your blog. Do NOT go back into Compose Post view! This may alter the code and then the PayPal button looks incorrect. So, the key is to Save/Post your post immediately after pasting the code into the HTML code.

Hi, Heather...this post was very helpful, but I'm finding that about 10% of the time, the PayPal Button has a glitch...it'll be working fine, adding things to my shopping cart, and then when I go to add another item, my shopping cart is empty and I'm left with that one item.
I contacted PayPal by phone and they said that's because PayPal is not meant to work on blogs. It only works on websites. HUH?

Isn't html html? I thought blogs were websites.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Hi Jeremy!
To do a Donate button you basically follow the same except that under Merchant Services; instead of choosing you will choose Donate and go from there. But copying and pasting in the code into your blog is the same.

Heather :D

Hi Jeremy!
Blogger does NOT handle formatting well for the PayPal buttons. Even if you Publish without Previewing, Blogger will now still throw in extra padding…so you have to modify the HTML code to remove line breaks and basically consolidate the lines of HTML code from PayPal (for the button).

Go to your PayPal Account in another window. Login and go to Merchant Services and choose the Buy Now button. Complete the details (such as which button to use, what price, Item Name/Description, and more). Then click Create Button Now. At that point you can Copy the HTML code.This is very right,i think so.

Hi Heather,
Great looking blog. Do you offer help to those who want to offer e-books or e-newsletters on their blogs?
Thanks!
James Gibson!

Heather Wright-Porto

Hi Laura,
Yes..instead of choosing a Buy Now button, you would choose the Add to Cart button and use the same instructions.

Best wishes,
Heather :D

Laura Pinto-Nguyen

Is the same process with the "Add To Cart" button as well?
