Hi Charlotte

I think that Paypal was just being lazy as it is quite simple to do using your Merchant services account on their website. To add a simple "Donate" button in GBP to your site follow these easy steps...

1) Log into your Paypal account here.
2) Click on the "Merchant services" tab
3) Mid way down and in the middle of the page click on the "Donate" link in the Create Buttons section
4) Choose button type and enter payment details and currency.
5) Click "Save changes"
6) Click the "Select code" button and right click on the highlighted code then click "Copy"
7) Paste that code in an HTML widget on the page you wish to have your donate button located.
