PayPal, is an eBay Company,It enables any individual or business with an email address to securely, easily and quickly send and receive payments online.

If you don't have a paypal account yet, you can get a free account

After you have your login ID/password,
Login to your account. Then click the "merchant services" tab

scroll down and on the right sidebar, find the box labelled key features, click on the link named "Donations"

After clicking on that link, you will taken to "Create paypal payment button" page, just make sure that donations is selected in the "Accept Payments for" dropdown box. You can type a name/id for this button

Down below you can customize your paypal button by selecting options like using smaller button, displaying credit card logos, changing language, currency, contribution amount or use your own graphic as a button.

Step 2 & 3 are optional and requires a business account, so leave them for now. and click on create button.

On the next page, copy the entire code from the textbox and paste it into your template of your website or blog, where you want it to appear. Congratulations! You have just added paypal donate button to your blog.

XML blogger users can paste this code by adding HTML/JavaScript gadget to their blogger blog.

  7. @Joseph, Of course you can add the paypal donate button on your individual posts, that's how I created the live demo on my post. The procedure for generating the paypal code is the same, then when you are creating a new post, you have to make sure that you are on the HTML mode(which will accept html data) and NOT the compose mode.

    Need my tutorial for that? let me know.

  31. So if I have an account already set up, where exactly does the $$ go once someone donates?

  32. @Julie Sharon,
    Suppose If you set up a paypal a/c, then the donated amount is credited at your paypal a/c which can be used for online transactions(where paypal is supported) or you can request a cheque payment from paypal.
