How do I add a paypal button?

  1. I would like to add a buy now button to my site with paypal, but when I entered it into the text widget, it didn't work. How do I add an HTML code to create a button????

    The blog I need help with is coachlisaberg.com.

  2. You can post a PayPal donation button on a free hosted WordPress.com blog and the instructions are here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

  3. There is only one advertising program called WordAds at WordPress.com and it’s for blogs on their own domains. This is the homepage for the WordAds program: http://www.wordads.co/ There you will find the application page as well as FAQs.

    Aside from a blog being accepted into WordAds, no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work or products created or services provided by anyone other than yourself is allowed on free hosted wordpress.com blogs. E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.com

    On free hosted WordPress.com blog we can use a contact form and/or a PayPal donation button for sale of only products or services personally created or personally provided by ourselves, not by anyone else.

    If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising and/or affiliate links you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org Refer to > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  4. I have a paid domain on wordpress, I want a buy now not donate.

  5. I have mapped domains for my blogs too but that's irrelevant. There is no upgrade you can purchase from WordPress.com that changes anything stated here http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ and restated again here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/#important-notes-before-upgrading and restated again here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

  6. I understand the tos for adding a paypal 'donate' button. So I want people to be able to pay for my consulting services only. Can my button say something other than 'Donate'? Since I can have a custom button, I imagine it can but nothing I've read indicates that.

    And once they get to Paypal, will the inner Paypal area indicate the person is making a donation? That might be confusing to my clients.

    Thanks.
