This plugins works exactly as described. Setup and use is easy and the developer is very responsive to questions. Five stars for both the plugin and the developer.

Quick Response and Job Well Done

We have been using the PayPal Plugin for a couple of years and only have had 1 issue. Scott was very responsive and corrected the issue in real time. The most important thing was that he stayed in contact with us until the issue was resolved. Job well done!

Can’t use already created buttons

I've already created hundreds of buttons through's official Button creator, I need to be able to import the code for those buttons into a WordPress page, and have the dropdown select menus working. This doesn't do that.
