How do I add a PayPal Donate button to my site?

The Donate button from PayPal is a great way for charitable organisations to collect donations via their website.

To add a Paypal donate button to your website, please follow the steps below:

  1. Click on to "Content"
  2. Click on "Widgets" on the left-hand menu
  3. Click on the "Add Widgets" link 
  4. Choose the "PayPal 'Donate' Button" widget 
  5. You will need to customise the Widget to your requirements
  6. Save your changes 

Once you have created your new Widget:

  1. Log into your Create account

  2. Click Content on the top menu

  3. Click Edit This Page (the pencil icon) next to the page you would like to edit

  4. Click the Add Block button in the bottom left-hand corner

  5. From the drop-down menu, select Custom

6. You can then drag and drop the Custom Element content block onto the desired place on the page.

Once the Custom Element block has been added to the page, you can click the + icon and use the drop-down menu to select what content you would like to add to the page.

 

 

You’ll see you can select content including Widgets, HTML Fragments and Custom Forms, as well as combinations of other blocks such as Buttons, Headers, Images, Videos, Maps and Text.

A placeholder icon will be added to the page and if you click the Settings icon, you can specify exactly which widget or HTML fragment for example, that you would like to use. Click Done and then save your changes.

If you have any further questions at all, don't hesitate to contact your Account Manager who will be happy to help.
