How To Add A PayPal Button To Your Blog


Are you avoiding using PayPal Buttons on your blog or website because you think it's going to be too complicated?  

Well, I'm here to tell you that it is so simple and so, so very effective that you should do it now. As in, so that you can make some sales.

Here's how:

Go to the PayPal website and sign up for an account.  If you already have an account, simply click on Merchant Services.

Click on "Create a button".

Choose what style of "Buy Now" button you would like for your customers.

List your items separately by name and add the price of each item.  

Add in your shipping costs and taxes.  I add in a specific cost depending on the size and weight of the item.  To make my pricing simple, I don't add taxes to my products, I include the tax in the price of the item. 

Click on "Create button" to generate the code for your website.

You can reuse the button as a template for more buttons.  Or you can create new buttons.

Instructions for adding the code right under a post on a page.

Or you can add the code to your sidebar with a photo of the item right on your blog.

If you are on Blogger, simply go to your dashboard, on the left side, scroll down to the layout.  Then to add a gadget.

Scroll down to add your image.

Name your item.

Choose a photo of the item.

Upload the image.

Click save and you're done!

Promote your page and you are on your way to making money from your blog or website.  

PayPal and Blogger are so "user friendly" that their is no reason to be scared to add buttons on your site.

I hope this tutorial helps you make some sales today!

Ciao Bella!
