PayPal Buy Button
 

Description:
PayPal is a safe, secure and fast way to transfer money to anyone in the world with an e-mail address. As such it has proved popular with both individuals and small businesses alike and tends to be the preferred payment method for many sellers on auction sites like eBay.

PayPal Buy Button is a simple action that will allow you to quickly and easily add "Buy Now" buttons to your Freeway generated web pages. As an example the button below will take donations for the upkeep of this site.


Adding the action to your pages:
To add the action to your web pages follow the Freestanding action guidelines.
 

Using the action:
Using the PayPal Buy Button action is simple;

  1. If you (or the recipient of the money) haven't a PayPal account already then surf over to their site and sign yourself up for one.
  2. Download the PayPal Buy Button action and install it in your Freeway Actions folder.
  3. In Freeway use the action tool in the tool palette, the one marked with the Freeway logo, to sketch the PayPal Buy Button action to the page. Ideally this should be 62 pixels wide by 31 high as this is the size of the PayPal logo.
  4. In the actions palette set the 'Business' field to the e-mail address you used when setting up your PayPal account. The quantity, item name and amount directly relate to the item or service you are selling. The rest of the action information is optional. You can also add an item number or shipping costs to the action by way of the fields provided. The 'target' and 'Target name' controls are only required if you want the PayPal cart to open up in a new or specific browser frame or window. If you want this to open in the default (same) window then leave it as it stands.
  5. When you are done save and preview your page and (assuming you have a live internet connection) you should see the PayPal button on your page and fully functional 'buy' button.

For more information about the different options available in setting up your buy buttons please see PayPal's documentation available on their site.

Requirements:
Freeway 2.x, FreewayPro 3.x, or Freeway Express 4 or above and an active PayPal account.


Browser compatibility:
All.
