Here are instructions to set up PayPal and add the buttons to your website.

  1. Click Websites Manager on the left, then click Edit Site to go to the editor.




  2. In the SiteBuilder toolbar, click Insert.




  3. Click More on the right, then click PayPal Button.


  4. Note: This button isn't available if you already have SimpleStore. If you have SimpleStore, the option to use PayPal is built right in.



  5. You'll be asked to set up a PayPal account or link an existing account to your SiteBuilder website. Follow the on-screen instructions or sign up for a PayPal account.

  6. If you've already setup PayPal to work with SiteBuilder, the PayPal Button setup window will appear to the right. To add a new item to sell, click Edit Products.

  7. The Product Manager window opens. Enter a product name (required), description, SKU, and price.


  8. Important: When choosing a product name, avoid using a forward slash " / " as this character redirects the PayPal button to the wrong location on the Internet.

  9. Click OK. Repeat these steps until all of your products are available online.

  10. Save and Publish your page.

Hope this helps!
