Instructions say the PayPal button won't work with a private account and we must have a business account. We are a nonprofit seeking donations.  Will it work?

I am assuming that they are referring to their own account designations. You would need to ask Paypal.

In Homestead Site Builder on the menu there is  "PayPal Button." When I click there it gives instructions and at the bottom it says:

* PayPal Personal accounts will not work with Homestead PayPal Elements. To sign up for a PayPal Business account, or to upgrade an existing PayPal Personal account, please visit www.PayPal.com.

Maybe I will just try it with our nonprofit PayPal account.... I think it might be a business account with a discount for being a nonprofit. Just wondered if you knew or anyone else did.

If you use a Paypal business account the buttons should add to your site. Let me know if that is not the case.
