You can update your branch sites to have a PayPal checkout button, which allows you to accept donations for your branch through your website, or to charge a registration fee for an event.
Site Resources websites require a bit of code editing before the button can be inserted on your site. This step by step guide will walk you through the process so that you can get started accepting payments through your site!
When you acquire the PayPal code from your branch’s PayPal account, it should look like this:
<form action=”https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr” method=”post” target=”_top”>
<input type=”hidden” name=”cmd” value=”_s-xclick”>
<input type=”hidden” name=”hosted_button_id” value=”HRWFEJ9YVUTCY“>
<input type=”image” src=”https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_paynowCC_LG.gif” border=”0″ name=”submit” alt=”PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!”>
<img alt=”” border=”0″ src=”https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif” width=”1″ height=”1″>
I have changed the text color of the important part of the code, which you will insert into the new shortened code that actually works on our websites. This is your branch’s merchant id, or how PayPal designates the money should go to you.
Adding the Button to your Site
Please email the embed code to firstname.lastname@example.org mentioning your branch and listing which page you would like the code on. The Site Resources associate will embed it for you.
From the “Text” tab.
