Hey Gill,
I would recommend going to the paypal website,
Creating a button under 'Merchant Services'
And fill in all the details.
When you get to step 3 you can include a link to send your customers to after they pay.

Here is some more information about custom paypal buttons on Yola.
Custom Paypal Buttons

Hope this helps.

hi John
i've created the button with Paypal - does the link have to be a page on my website that is in the published site or can the link go to a page on yola that i've not put in the navigation? the only reason is that the question has to remain private - not accessible to anyone til they've paid (rules within the gambling act over here) and therefore the link would be to unpublished page. Will it still work?

Hey Gill,
It can be a link to a page that isn't in your navigation.
If the page has to remain private maybe password protect it and give the people who enter the details.
But it must be a page that is published.

Hope this Helps.

P.S I'm in the UK as well :)
