I have set up a donate button 3 times according to the directions and it doesn’t link to anything. I read somewhere that if you have a “free” wordpress account it will not work, is that true? If so, if I upgrade to my own domain name will that be enough to make it work?
Please help, this is time sensitive!
There is no upgrade that changes anything at all stated in the guide. Provided you are selling only items that you personally make and/or services you personally provide you ought to be able to post a PayPal button by using this guide http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/
Ok, that’s good but I am not sure what if anything I am doing wrong then. I have followed it exactly, even though the screen is different than my actual screen at time (ie: HTML tab vs text tab). Any suggestions? I have the icon just no connection to anything when it is clicked.
