I would like to replace the buttons for PayPal buttons, when I attempt to do so this “> shows and the button becomes useless.
Hi jeeniejolie can you type here the url that you are currently entering for your button?
I don’t have a “URL” per say, I have the code that I’ve taken from PayPal after I created the button I needed. You can use my test button below to see the issue:
<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=”CUNYVUQVT9LVS”>
<input type=”image” src=”https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.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″>
I was using that code to put into the “URL” field in the plug in, but you could see the coding and it would not send me to PayPal after clicking it.
Hi, have you tried to add the short code URL i.e https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=YOURBUTTONID
Of course you would replace YOURBUTTONID with your own ID.
I tried doing that but the button goes NO WHERE.I was wondering, even if I could get it to work like this, would it mess with the IPN call out.
Hi jeeniejolie as far as I know it shouldn’t.
This is the correct method, someone also posted this method in another plugin similar to this one. Also if this was not the correct method then I am sure that many would have reported it already.
Also when you said “you tried doing that” did you try with the URL I posted above changing the YOURBUTTONID with your own ID.
