      Perhaps I’m just not seeing where to put them in and/or how to add HTML to blog posts, but is adding paypal buttons (ex, ‘buy it now’ or ‘donate’) to blogs currently supported? Thanks in advance!

      I’ll see if I can set something up for you that will let you accept PayPal donations on your site.

      Thank you very much! If it’s too much effort, please don’t feel like there’s any pressure.

      Sure thing. It’s not a problem, I’m happy to help. I’ll see if I can find a good solution within the next couple of days. Are you wanting to only accept donations or would you like to sell products as well?

      Both would be preferable!

      You can now create a store on your blog and sell products by accepting PayPal and/or Points. Just click the Products > Settings menu to get going. You can turn on the MyCred payment method if you wish to accept Points for your products. Then just add your products and you will have your own store on your blog. Your products will also show up the the Global Marketplace in the rewards menu.

      You can also activate the PayPal Donations plugin if you wish to add a donation button in a post or by using a widget. Once you activate the plugin go to Settings > PayPal Donations to input your settings. You can then use the widget or the shortcode [paypal-donation] or [paypal-donation purpose=”Enter your purpose here” reference=”Enter a reference here”] in a post.

      Let me know if you have any issues with getting it working.

      I tried and it is working. But I will not be using it unless I set up an online store blog.

        @owesome_80 a blog where you sell items online? You list your items for sale and accept any payment method.

      This sounds really great but I will have to explore and might open something in the future using PayPal buttons. Thanks for the questions and answers.

      This Forum post seems quite interesting.
      I will be trying out the donation button in the next couple of days.

      Hi, I also tried that idea in one of my blog. Sad to say it didn’t go well.
