How to Create a Custom Paypal Link with your own Text or Image
I’ve been working on a number of service pages for the revamped services section that is launching soon and was in need of a way to manually insert paypal buy now buttons with my own text and style.
Step By Step Tutorial on How to Create the Custom Paypal link
2. Enter the item details
I’m selling this example item for 1 million dollars if you are interested.
3. Grab the default Form Code
Copy and paste this code into a text editor to grab the value from the hosted_button_id field. This is what you will insert onto the end of this link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=YOURHOSTEDBUTTONIDHERE
So for example: grab the hosted_button_id (68UGCQP8W6S2W) seen on line 3 here:[html highlight=”3″] <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post"><input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick" />
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="68UGCQP8W6S2W" />
<input type="image" name="submit" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" alt="PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!" />
<img src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" alt="" width="1" height="1" border="0" /></form>
And paste that id onto the end of the link below.[html]<a href="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=XGXV8Y62Q4LQ8">Buy Now</a>[/html]
You can use this custom link with your own graphic or just a regular text link.
That simple. Enjoy!
