  • Hello fanteema I have replied to your previous support ticket by accident 🙂 can you check to make sure you have the correct PayPal code entered in your button field?

    Kind regards

    Hello, it is the correct code. I went to PayPal help and they showed me how to check that the code was correct by testing it outside of wordpress and it worked. When I pasted it in the price table it did change. It looks like this:
    <form action=

    Hello fanteema go to the following Support Thread and read what I typed there. Your code should begin like http://………

    Kind regards

    I just took a look at it. How can I get it like that? Do I manually type it in? When I copy/pasted it changed it.

    Hello fanteema yes you manually type it in. Also have you updated to the latest version?

    Kind regards

    It originally looked like this: <form action =https…..
    I took the “s” off the http then it changed back to this: <form action=. Everything afterwards disappeared. I’m not sure if typing it in will stop it from changing. I have the latest version of WordPress. Is there an updated version of the ready pricing table?

    Hi Fanteema, are you also typing in the following <form action….

    If you are then that is the problem. Don’t type in <form action..

    Only type http://…including the URL

    Try that and let me know.

    There is another version out which is

    Kind regards

    Do I download the latest version from your plugin site where it says free download? That one has 4 free templates and the older one has 5 free templates. Will I lose the template I currently have?

    Also, I’ve been playing around with it but its not working. I was able to put in: http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr. It went to my own paypal page but not a checkout page. Then I tried adding more of the code but it said the URL wasn’t valid. How much of the code should I be typing in and should I take out any quotes or symbols?
    Here is the entire code:
    <form action=”https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr” method=”post” target=”_top”>
    <input type=”hidden” name=”cmd” value=”_s-xclick”>
    <input type=”hidden” name=”hosted_button_id” value=”5KAYH6SGS38TL”>
    <input type=”image” src=”https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_paynow_SM.gif” border=”0″ name=”submit” alt=”PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!”>
    <img alt=”” border=”0″ src=”https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif” width=”1″ height=”1″>

    Hello Fanteema, can you share your URL so that we can check.

    Thank you

    Hello Fanteema, how have you set up your PayPal account? I believe that you have not set up your PayPal account correctly and that is why when you enter the URL mentioned above it takes you to your PayPal page and nothing more.

    Also have a read through this Support Thread.

    Thank you

    When I contacted PayPal the other day they tested out the link without it being in a price table and it worked. It went to a separate checkout page.

    Hello Fanteema, can you create a temp page with your PayPal link so that I can test.

    Thank you

    Done. Here is the link: http://www.thesweetnetwork.com/test-page/. It should take you to a checkout for: 15 minute consult/ $25.
    I took out the <form action= at the beginning and end and I also took the s off the first http.

    Hello Fanteema, unfortunately the button on your test page only points to http:///.

    Can you please edit the link again for me so that I can test.

    Kind regards
