How to Create a Paypal Payment Badge

/ On : 8:54 AM/

One of the easiest ways to allow customers to purchase an item from your site is to simply place a PayPal payment badge ( a PayPal donation Button ) on your site, linking to the PayPal payment page (the link is quite complex, because it passes quite a bit of information). The users complete the purchase by either entering their user information like credit card information (a PayPal account is not required). Once the transaction is complete, PayPal will notify you of the transaction via its Instant Payment Notification system.
I'm going to show you how to creat a paypal payment badge ( a PayPal donation Button ) step by step:


1. Login to your PayPal account and select the Merchant Tools tab. From within that tab, select the Buy Now Buttons link under the Accepting Website Payments.




2. Then choose the button style that you wish to appear on your site.
3. If you want you can specific a donation amount by filling the Donation Amount.
4. Under “Choose a donation button to put on your website (optional)“, you can choose a donation button or use your own image.
5. Finally select the default button.
6. Then click on Create Button gives me the following HTML code for the donation button :



<form action="https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="stb@preinheimer.com">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Professional Web APIs with PHP">
<input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="0764589547">
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="49.99">
<input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
<input type="image" src="https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/x-click-
but23.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast,free
and secure!">
</form>


7. Copy the HTML code for the donation button and paste into your website.
8. Click done.
