how to create a paypal donate button

Need a PayPal donate button?

Paypal has you covered! Unfortunately, if you are not familiar with the backend, you find it hard to figure out. That is where this blog post comes in.

The first thing you will need to do is to log into PayPal.

Once you are logged in you will need to scroll down the page and click on the “Details” link under Selling Tools on the left side of the page.

That is going to take you to the “Tools” page.

From here you will want to click on “create payment button for your website”

Now that you have done that all you need to do is select the donations tab from the button builder.

The next thing you should do is type in the name of your organization.

Now, click “Create Button”

The last thing for you to do is copy the HTML code and paste it where you wish to have it on your website. If you do not have a website and would like to build one you can do so with the Blitz

REMEMBER: This is HTML so if you are using a WYSIWYG type of builder such as Elementor for WordPress, you’ll need to make sure it is in the HTML editor and not visual editor. 

Also: If you are wanting to send people a link for them to donate instead of putting a donate button on your website you can simply click on Email to get the donate link.

Now you can simply copy and paste the link in a email, Twitch, YouTube or wherever you want to list the link.
