PayPal Buy Buttons

To setup buy buttons for your merchandise, or other items you would like to sell, a PayPal buy button is often the best choice. To setup a buy button, start by going to and log in.

Once logged in, click on "Tools" and select "All Tools".

On the next screen, you will need to scroll down until you see the section called, "PayPal Buttons", as shown below, and click "Open".

Next, click "Create new button". Any buttons you have created previously, will be displayed below.

Next, configure the button the way you want it to appear on your site. When you are done, click "Create Button" at the bottom of the page.

Next, copy the code from this box on the page that loads up. This is the code that will place the button into your site. Save this as you will need it in a moment.

Now, you will need to go to your HostBaby website dashboard to the page you want to place this button. In our example we will be placing it in a product page. For more information on setting up products, refer to the "Site Builder Manual" in the help center, located here.

Once you have your product setup the way you want, and are ready to apply the buy button, you will need to pull up the product entry from your products page. Once you have it pulled up, click the "HTML" button from the editor toolbar, as shown below.

In the new window that will pop up, named "HTML Source Editor" you will paste your code you saved from PayPal. It should look something like what is shown below. Once you have it pasted in, click "Update".

Next, ensure that everything looks correct, and that the preview for your PayPal button is displaying below. If everything looks right, click "Save".

Last, go to your site, and verify everything looks the way you want it to. That's it! you are done! The below screenshot shows what a standard PayPal buy button should look like when done correctly.
