Azz is an unknown quantity at this point
Default "Pay your bill"

Hi,

I have seen on a couple of your websites a link for people to pay their bills through paypal. The amount is blank so they can put any amount they like.

How did you integrate this with paypal? I can't find it anywhere.

Thanks,
Aaron

It's on the Products and Services tab under website payments standard. There is a "Add a Paypal Button" option at the bottom of the page. Or just search Paypal Button in paypals search box

You need to generate a paypal button which gives you a form like this;

Quote:
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="asasd@aol.com">
<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="GB">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Test">
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="30.00">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="GBP">
<input type="hidden" name="bn" value="PP-BuyNowBF:btn_buynowCC_LG.gif:NonHostedGuest">
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_GB/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online.">
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_GB/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
</form>
Just change the input type to "text" for name="amount" and "item_name" on your website and it'll give you text boxes to enter the values. That's about the jist of it.

Oh and change name="business" to your paypal address.

Here is the "generate button" page on paypals website.

No problem - just delete the "img" tag and add some text "Click here to pay" or something and call it name="submit", inside the <form> </form> tags

Hope that makes sense - in the middle of several jobs and uber tired

e.g. - <input type=submit value="Gimme your money">

Actually, having just tried it, that's still a button

Will look into it later if no one else has come up with the answer.

Simmy is basically right for being tired. On paypal's site, you can sign up for a button. What they also give you (what i did) was the code to put into an email link. When the customer clicks on it you go right to a paypal page where the customer can pay. I used that code as the value for <a href= on a button on my webpage. You can see it in the source code for the main page.

If I remember right, there is also a way to encrypt your information to keep it from prying eyes.

I just ended up making my own "Pay Now" button. Whenever I drop a computer off, I show then how they can pay with a credit card and they do it on the spot. If anyone wants to use my "Pay Now" button, feel free to copy it from my site in the sig.
