Paypal botton

  1. My webpage won't recognize a paypal button. It comes up as general text and not an actual button.

    The blog I need help with is thebabblinglotus.wordpress.com.

  2. Did you follow the instructions in this support doc? http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

    Note that if you select any of the customization options for the button on the PayPal website then the button won't work.

  3. Yes, I have another website and the button would work on my other website, but would only come up as boxed text on the website I actually want the button on. Is it possible that the theme I've chosen doesn't support paypal buttons?

  4. I don't think it's the theme, no. Post the exact code you're trying to input here. Place it between code tags so we are able to see it.

  5. Hmmm, I don't know what code tags are, but below is the code. Like I said, it worked on my other site (www.theyogahouseny.com), but not my babbling lotus site.

    <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top">
    <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
    <input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="DXRTXDXRXYWRQ">
    <table>
    <tr><td><input type="hidden" name="on0" value="Lesson Type">Lesson Type</td></tr><tr><td><select name="os0">
    <option value="Studio Lesson">Studio Lesson $70.00 USD</option>
    <option value="Your Home Lesson">Your Home Lesson $85.00 USD</option>
    <option value="Virtual Lesson">Virtual Lesson $55.00 USD</option>
    </select> </td></tr>
    </table>
    <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
    <input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
    <img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
    </form>

  6. Instructions for the only PayPal button code that will operate on any wordpress.com hosted blog is detailed at http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

  7. This is helpful. I'll be able to at least at the option to pay paypal with this info but I'd prefer to have a drop-down buy now button...

  8. As kokkieh said above:

    Note that if you select any of the customization options for the button on the PayPal website then the button won't work.
