How To Create a 'Buy Now' PayPal Link

by Updated March 17, 2009

In just a few steps, PayPal makes it really simple for you to create product buy now buttons or links for websites and email. Follow these steps to create a 'Buy Now' Paypal link: 

  1. Log into your PayPal account.
  2. Click on the 'Merchant Services' tab, then click on 'Buy Now Button'
  3. To create your PaypPal payment link/button, start by choosing your button type and entering your product details.  You will want to specify an Item Name and the Price of the product.
  4. You will then have the option to track inventory, profit & loss, and also customize advance features for the button (We won't go through them here).  Once you've gone through all the options and filled out what you want for your link, click 'Create Button'.
  5. In this example we want to use the PayPal Link code (not Website button code), so you will want to click on the 'Email' tab, then press the 'Select Code' button. 
  6. Now just Copy the highlighted link, and then Paste the PayPal code into your own code or website.

That's it!
