Tip & How-To about PayPal Accounts

How to Create a Donate Button

Want to create a "Donate Button" for your website?

Here are 6 easy steps to do it.

1.Log into your PayPal account.

2.Click the Merchant Tools tab, and then click Donations (under Website Payments).

3.Fill in a name and ID number, if you wish. A Donate Now button's name and ID number, like the Item Name/Service and Item ID/Number in a Buy Now button, let you and your contributors identify payments. By using different numbers and descriptions, you can place a number of buttons on your site, each soliciting donations to different programs.

4.Enter an amount or leave blank if you want your donors to enter an amount themselves. Either way, you'll need to select a currency in which donations will be made.

5.Choose from the selection of PayPal donation buttons, or specify the URL of your own button image.

6.Choose the encrypted or unencrypted version of the button. If you're not sure which one to use, choose the unencrypted version; you can replace it later with an encrypted one once your button is functioning. Unencrypted buttons are plain HTML forms—easy to read, understand, and modify. An encrypted button, on the other hand, is inscrutable to anyone but the PayPal system and impossible to modify or customize. While unencrypted buttons can be created with any software tool, encrypted buttons can, at the time of this writing, be created only with the PayPal system's Merchant Tools. Encrypted buttons can be useful in some situations, such as to protect your email address from spammers. Openness, however, is usually best in this case.

Click "Create Button Now" when you're done.


The HTML code generated for your button is found in a textarea box on the next page. Just select its contents, press Ctrl-C to copy the text to the clipboard, and then paste the text into your web page.
