Boy I can't believe that I didn't create a thread with my Paypal tutorial on adding a drop-down menu for product sizes/colors/etc years ago. Getting forgetful in my old age. ;) I have added it to dozens of individual threads as an answer to a question but it escaped me to create its own thread.

While you cannot presently have a drop-down with the sitebuilder paypal widget you can with your personal paypal account.

1) Sign into your Pay-pal 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" or the "Add drop-down menu" box half-way down the page.
6. Add the product sizes/colors (anything) you offer in the "Menu option name" box but if you choose the "with price" menu add the product price with the shipping fee included for the product in the price box.
7. If you already have set your shipping in your paypal profile then tick that box but if you wish to set shipping for each item tick "Use specific amount" in the shipping section and in the price box place an amount that is enough to cover shipping fees for your product(s). In this same section include the tax if applicable.
8. Click "Done".
9. When done editing click "Create Button".
10. In the next window and in the (Website) code box click the "Select Code".
11. Right click on the highlighted text and click "Copy".
12. Open your site editor and drag an HTML Widget where you need it.
13. In the HTML Widget paste the code.
14. Then republish your site.

It may seem daunting but after a few you will become a pro at it... ;)

This thread you might find useful as well... ;)

Happy site building
