Hey guys,

Just wondering, but for the marketplace on here how do you add a "Pay Now" button on your post? So that they can pay you and it automatically delivers them the content?

I heard something about upgrading to a PayPal business account, but is there any free ways of doing it?

Thanks, Adam

Hi Adam,

This should be pretty easy to do... The paypal payment is a hyperlink so you should be able to add an image to the thread with it being hyperlinked to paypal if that makes sense... I know I can copy the pay button URL from my website to the browser and it takes me there..

So you'll need to do the same thing with using the button code (hyperlink) from your website... What you can't do is place the paypal html form code directly - you need to do it by proxy as mentioned with copying the hyperlink code from your website...

Hope that helps!

Hey Adam,

From the sounds of it, you merely have a PayPal personal
account. Is that correct? If so, it can not be done. As a
personal account holder, you wouldn't normally be selling
digital downloads, so the options would not be there for
you as IPN is not a feature. You would have to upgrade
to a business plan. OR, you can set up another PayPal
account so that you can keep personal and "business"
stuff seperate. PayPal DOES allow you to have 1 of
each type of account.

Once you have a business account, you will be able
to create a buy button which will take people to your
thank you page immediately after their purchase.

If you need further assistance, let me know. I'd be
more than happy to answer any other questions you
may have.
