PayPal for Divi

Description

Introduction

PayPal for Divi adds a PayPal Button module into the Divi page builder tool making it quick and easy to add PayPal Buy Now and Donate buttons to any WordPress page or post built with Divi.

  • Buy Now Button
  • Donate Button

PayPal WP Button Manager Compatibility

If you are using our PayPal WP Button Manager plugin to create buttons, or if you would like to install it and use it to create and manage buttons, you will then be able to easily add buttons created by the Button Manager through the PayPal Button Divi module.

Divi Theme by Elegant Themes Compatibility

This plugin is built specifically for the Divi theme. If you would like to add PayPal buttons to a non-Divi WordPress site, take a look at our PayPal WP Button Manager plugin.

Quality Control

Payment processing can’t go wrong. It’s as simple as that. Our certified PayPal engineers have developed and thoroughly tested this plugin on the PayPal sandbox (test) servers to ensure your customers don’t have problems paying you.

Seamless PayPal Integration

No more leaving the WordPress admin panel to log in to PayPal, create your button, copy HTML code, return to WordPress to paste the code, and finally save your page. Instead, simply drop the button into the page using the Divi module and you’re done within seconds!

Localization

This plugin was developed with localization in mind and is ready for translation.

How do I create sandbox accounts for testing?
  • Login at http://developer.paypal.com.
  • Click the Applications tab in the top menu.
  • Click Sandbox Accounts in the left sidebar menu.
  • Click the Create Account button to create a new sandbox account.
  • TIP: Create at least one “seller” account and one “buyer” account if you want to fully test Express Checkout or other PayPal wallet payments.
  • TUTORIAL: See our step-by-step instructions with video guide.
I recently updated the plugin, but the changes do not seem to be taking affect. Why?
  • The Divi theme utilizes your browser’s “local storage” to improve the performance of the Divi Builder. This does not clear even if you clear your browser cache and history. If it seems that updates are not taking affect, try to disable and re-enable the plugin, which should clear the browser’s locale storage and resolve the issue.
Can I create more than just Buy Now and Donate buttons?
  • We have plans to expand upon this PayPal for Divi module. In the mean-time, take a look at our free PayPal WP Button Manager plugin, which allows you to build a variety of PayPal buttons within WordPress.

Reviews

Great concept – has some kinks to work out

I love the idea of this plugin and the user interface is simple and great. Unfortunately the behavior doesn’t yet match the description. For example…

  • Using the plugin to customize the purchase/donate button (e.g. change text size) has no effect on the appearance. I have no other paypal/button plugins that might be causing a conflict.
  • When I set up a paypal account in the plugin, the account name I enter is ignored—it’s always listed without a name in the plugin’s list of accounts.
  • The plugin asks for “Paypal Account ID”. PayPal.com says that my email address is my account ID, but the plugin doesn’t accept my email address properly (doesn’t give an error but it removes the “@” sign), causing the button to fail. To get it to work I needed to enter what PayPal calls my Merchant ID.

I’ll be happy to upgrade this review as the plugin improves.
