Is there any way to have a Paypal shopping cart on my blog?

    I found out how to put a Paypal ‘donate’ button on my website through your support. Very helpful.

    I know WordPress lets me do a donate button because there’s the option for for ’email’ that just has a link instead of the html code.

    Is there any way to use a Paypal shopping cart on my blog? My wife sells prints of her art and wants to do this on her wordpress blog.

    The blog I need help with is



    There are no ecommerce capabilities for blogs. You can only use a donation button. This is because the ktypes of blogs we can have at are limited and we are not allowed to advertise. See here > and here >



    Even if it’s original art, the shopping cart code will not work here. We have to stick to really very, very basic HTML or the code is stripped out (this is for security here at, and to encourage ecommerce seekers to find other platforms).

    Many artists etc use the email/donation button with satisfaction to sell their works, but if you would prefer more advanced functionality, you’ll have to look for hosting elsewhere, I’m afraid.


    Hi all, can you provide instructions on how to add the ‘donate’ button? I’m an artist who would love to have it on my blog. Thanks!
