    Looks easy. . . Do we have to have a “donate” button or can we have a BUY NOW button on

      The options for editing the button all reside with PayPal; you’ll have to check with the button creation utility there to find out. As mentioned in the video, you can edit the image to be anything you like, as well.

    Hi Ryan:

    I’ve just discovered your website. It’s terrific! This “how to” video on adding a PayPal donate button to a WordPress site is excellent. I will be coming back often, with coffee, to browse your treasury of teaching videos. Thanks for this.
