Hi Emmanuel,

With the Yola free sites your customers can pay into your PayPal account by you utilising the PayPal Widgets listed in the sidebar of the sitebuilder, under the e-commerce tab.

If you only have one or two products then the Single Product widget would be OK. If you have a few more , say less than 15, then the the PayPal Product catalogue is the most useful as this allows users to select items and continue shopping for more.

If you have multiple items say in excess of 15 then a store would be your best choice. There are free stores available including Ecwid for less than 100 items and others. This can use your PayPal account. For more than 100 products, the best option, but not free, is the Yola Online Store which is a very logical and powerful store by Ecwid also, and can be setup allowing you easily to set up multiples of items with variations, Postage, Taxes, notes to customers and manual processing if indicated or needed by your system.
