I originally created an online store page before I had set up an account with Paypal. Now that I set up an account with them do I need to do anything to the page/code? If so what? Also, I need to change the PayPal Add to Cart Button but somehow I cannot seem to do this. Thank you.

Hello VampireLover,
If you added the Yola PayPal widget to your site you would have needed to enter your PayPal account information. Can you tell us more about how you created your store, and give us a link to the page so we can take a look. After seeing this, we will have the ability to help you further.

Hello Emmy,

Thank you for responding. When I set up the online store page in my website all I was asked to do was enter my email address and then I was able to create my "add to cart" button code (did this a while ago though so not 100% sure on everything I did). The issue is that my product comes in different sizes and colors so I want to change the button to reflect this (i.e. I have generated the code for the button via PayPal) but I'm unable to replace old button code with this new code. There is no place to revise the code in the existing page (OnLine Store) that I can find. I even created a new test page (HOV Store-Test) and and even there I cannot input the new button code. Not sure what I'm missing.

Below is test link to my website in Yola:


Small $29.99
Med $29.99
Large $29.99
XLarge $29.99

Hi there VampireLover,

Unfortunately you can 't add it directly to your store but have to add it to an HTML widget next to your store.

However, you can add to your site by visiting PayPal and customizing the code so that you can have a size selection on your site. Here's how:

1. Sign into your Paypal account.
2. Click the "Merchant services" tab in the horizontal menu.
3. Click the "Buy Now Button" or the "Add to Cart Button".
4. Choose button type and enter name and payment details.
5. Check the "Add drop-down menu with price/option" box half-way down the page.
6. Add the details of your selection.
7. Click "Done".
8. When done editing click "Create Button".
9. In the next window and in the (Website) code box click the "Select Code".
10. Right click on the highlighted text and click "Copy".
11. Open your site editor and drag an "HTML" widget where you need it.
12. In the "HTML" widget paste the code.
13. Then Update your site.

For detailed information on using PayPal, please view PayPal's Website Payments Standard Integration Guide PDF (5.8mb PDF).

I hope this helps.
