Just created a new page in BE 2.0

at the end of the text field I inserted the HTML PayPal code (in HTML edit mode)

Now when the button is hit the page simply reloads rather than going to paypal.

anyone have a fix for this.

 

thanks

You might try this extension.

While the button you suggested says donate and not Buy Now.

there is no documentation on how to install it so after hacking at it I figured it out.

Editing the files donate text to buynow text breaks the prog.

So still looking for a fix to a simple paypal buy now button

I think I figured this out.  You need to modify the class file with your paypal info.  In addition, in the script, there is a donate:item_name section.  I think you can change item_name to be something else.  However, I left it the same.  In my post, instead of putting the paypal code, I put "[donate:item_name]" without quotes, and it now takes me to the paypal page.

 

I hope this helps.
