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.

The buttons are very basic in nature, and can not have multiple options like that. You can if you get the third part HTML from PayPal and add it your site that way.

William, how do I change the placement of the button?  It always appears on the top left on my page...

Could you please post a graphic of what the finished paypal thing looks like? I have the 10 and under selling feature. I am having problems of seeing where my description of my product went. I can type the info in but when I post it, the only thing displayed is the paypal button (and no description of the product)! Thank you!
