How do I add a PayPal payment button to my website?

Here's how to add a button to your website:

  1. Go to PayPal Payment Buttons.
  2. Select a button type to create. 
  3. Enter the item name and price, and click Create Button.
  4. Click Select Code.
  5. Copy and paste the button code into your web page code.
  6. This new button will appear on the "My Saved Buttons" page.


  • If you've customized the button (by adding a dropdown menu or text field), follow the instructions on the page and implement the HTML code to create your button. 
  • Only buttons without customization have the "Email URL" option.
  • You can locate your Merchant ID within your PayPal account settings.
