    When I follow your instructions for adding a Paypal Subscribe button, Paypal does not generate an email code, only an HTML code. How do I get a Paypal Subscribe button to be loaded in my wordpress blog site?
    thank you,

    Our free hosted blogs cannot be equipped for eCommerce transactions. The only instructions we have been provided with are those for a PayPal donation button.


    This article you reference indicates that all the Paypal buttons should generate an email code. however, only the ‘Donate’ Paypal button does. The ‘Subscribe’ Paypal button, which is the one that provides automatically recurring donations, does not generate an email code – only an HTML code. Any way to get the ‘Subscribe’ Paypal button to work on the free blog?
