I am trying to put gift vouchers on my web site, but I am finding it hard to work out which way to go with it. I know you can do it using a paypal button but not sure how.
Any suggestions??

Hi Brooke,

I found the following info on Paypal that will help you set this up - https://www.paypal.com/uk/cgi-bin/web... and https://cms.paypal.com/cms_content/US...

To add the PayPal code to your site, follow these steps:

1. Drag-and-drop an HTML widget from the sidebar on the right onto your page (the icon for this is a blue sphere).
2. An HTML editor will open up that will allow you to write or paste your code (use right-click > paste or ctrl-V to paste).
3. When you are done, click "OK" and your HTML will be displayed on the page.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Rather than post a new question, I'll ask here. Has anyone implemented PayPal Gift Certificates on their Yola site?

I looked at the PayPal US link Brooke posted and it looks very workable.

I'm curious about possible pitfalls before I try it out.

Hi Margie,
I have not implemented this on a site before and haven't seen one either. However, the links that Kershnee posted make the set up look pretty straightforward. I hope someone stops by who will have some information for you.

i was using paypal for Donations.

I created a button from Paypal , and put it in my site.
When someone needs to donate me and clicks on that button , a new tab will open, and shows a dialog to enter amount , log in and pay!

That new tab is a encrypted one and we can expect Paypal-level security there.

You can choose whether you/donator pay the paypal's cost , the minimum amont to donate , etc.

So , you can set a minimum amount as the fee , and create some buttons for each plan.
