How to add a simple PayPal Buy Now button to your website

PayPal payment buttons are an easy way to accept payments online for products and services. If you have something to sell online, installing these buttons is rather easy once you have an account.

4. Click Create Button, if you wish to simply install the standard button or continue to Steps 2 and 3 if you wish to further customize.

5. PayPal will now provide you with some HTML that you can paste into the body of your website. If you’re using WordPress, you could post this into a blog post (use the HTML view) or in the sidebar if you want it to show up on every page throughout your site.

Happy Selling!
