Support » Plugin: PayPal Buy Now Button » No Donate button option in free version

  • I need just one generic PayPal ‘Donate’ button for a non-profit that I do pro-bono work for. The $10 fee for the Pro version isn’t much, but for that time and cost I can log into the paypal site and get the exact code I need directly. I would hope that in the Pro version that donate button is available by selection and not something you have to search out the url for. I would have expected the “official Paypal ” plugin to offer the standard Paypal buttons. ALso disappointed there’s no widget – just a link to a shortcode widget. Again, it isn’t saving me much more time than pasting in the Paypal code to a advanced text widget. I don’t usually complain about missing features on free plugins but since this claims to be ” Official Paypal” you’d think there’d be enough kickback to the developer enough to include these features – they can make up for it on the shopping cart plugins – not to mention we’re not using Square.

    Hi webmystery,

    PayPal offer a number of different buttons for different purposes. Buy Now, Shopping Cart, Donation, Gift Certificate, Installation Payments, etc.

    This specific plugin is only for creating a Buy Now button. That was done on purpose to not create a super complicated plugin. There are a number of other very good plugins that developers have created specifically for donations, that are free.

    I would recommend this one:

    I appreciate your review, however I do ask that you consider changing your rating. I feel that is it unfair as that is not the purpose of this plugin. Including a donation feature would be out of the scope of this plugin.

    Also this plugin is not an “Official PayPal” plugin, it was developed by an “Official PayPal Partner”. This means that my company has been reviewed and is included in the PayPal partner directory:

    Once again, I do ask that you please reconsider your rating as I worked very hard creating this plugin.

    Thank you,
    Scott Paterson
