    I would like to add a simple “Buy Photo” button under each one of my photos and have it directed to my website when someone clicks on the button. Is this even possible?

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

    Can I put a PayPal buy button on a .org site? I have learned that I cannot put it on the .com site, to am trying to learn the answer to this.

    We provide support here only for wordpress.com free hosted blogs. Yes you can use an encrypted PayaPal button on a wordpress.org install. No it’s not the same as the unencrypted button we use here on wordpress.com blogs. All support question about wordpress.ORG installs must be posted over here > http://wordpress.ORG/support/

    Thank you, but I dont want a button that someone actually buys from the blog site. I was wanting a button under each photo the only says “buy photo” and when someone clicks on it they will be directed to my web site where they can buy the print. I guess I need some type of link? But I want it to say “buy photo”

    Thanks

    Yes, you can make a text link or design a graphic button and link that image to your website to buy, BUT be aware that sites here that in staff’s opinion exist only to drive traffic to a third-party site can be suspended. They’re more lenient with artists and creators, but it’s still in the Terms of Service. If I were you, I’d run it by staff first, contacting them by the Help button on your dashboard.

    @vicky, talk with staff about it. I have several friend that are artists and there have been no issues linking to their own website, but I would still talk with them about it. I’m sure they will be fine with it.

    Thank you. The DVD in question is one I did make myself (I put on a seminar, hired a videographer to shoot it) but, in effect, I was the ‘producer’. Yes, I will attempt to talk to staff.
