I am an HTML dummy. I know enough to know nothing.

I am the new webmaster for a volleyball club. We use Frontpage to design our site. It is a template, not even something that I designed myself. We need to be able to accept paypal payments through our website for club fees and dues, but the only way that you can do that is with HTML code. I'm looking for some help as to how to do this. Our website address is HELP!!! smile.gif

You have to edit the pages where you want the paypal links or forms and insert the code PP gives you. There is no way around that.

Ok. Calm down... it's not quite as difficult as you think.
  • First you need to go to PayPal and log into your account.
  • Select the tab at the top that says Merchant Services
  • Find and select the link on the page that says "Buy Now Buttons"
  • PayPal will walk you through a little form which asks questions like the name of the item (Annual Membership), price, etc. Fill all that out and then click the "Create Button Now" button.
  • This will actually give you the HTML that you need in order to plug it into your page to have a payment button.

Now, once you have that code, you are going to need to open the specific page on your web site that you want the payment link to be placed on.

As Pandy said, you will need to edit the HTML a little, but it shouldn't be that difficult.

Go get your code from PayPal and then let us know two things:
1) You have the code and are ready to proceed.
2) Provide a link to the exact page you want the payment button on and a description of where in the page you want it placed.

One of us will then be able to tell you how to find the exact spot to plug in the code.
