If you are using their add to cart buttons you can add that option as you add products

Hi John - as far as I know, they need https pages which Yola doesn't yet have. Have you been able to add the standard Yola pages?

It works I just tested it again...It is not an automatic redirect ...The user will see a button to return to your site...You have decided what page on your site they return to.

Hi Joan - just in case you need more info. This feature is only available if you customize the buttons on PayPal.com directly. It's not available using the Online Store widgets on Yola.

To create a page on Yola that can be used, follow these steps:
1. Click on the "New Page" button and remember to make sure it's not included in the menu (if you don't want to include it in the menu).
2. Add the content and republish your site.
3. The URL would be something like www.mysite.yolasite.com/thank-you.php (where "mysite.yolasite.com" is your website's address and "thank-you.php" is the name of the page - you should customize accordingly).

Once you've customized the buttons you would like to add to your site, you can copy the HTML code provided and add it using the HTML widget:
1. Drag-and-drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
2. An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use right-click > paste or ctrl-V to paste).
3. When you are done, click "OK" and your HTML will be displayed on the page.

Let us know if you need any other help.

AlertPay makes this process very easy! paypal should be able to do the same by setting the forwarding through your user's page with them.

To add to John and Marije, I have found that although PayPal suggests using something like "/success", you must include the .php ("/success.php") for it to work. (Your page you create will still be called just "success".)
