Using PayPal button

Recommended Posts

I have a film website with one thing to sell - a DVD.  I have another film and it was it was easy to add a PayPal button for costumers to click, sending them to PayPal to complete the transaction. Not so easy anymore.  Is there a single video that walks you through the process?  Better yet, is there a human at Squarespace to talk to?

Any advice would be welcome.

Thanks.  I tried adding a PayPal generated button to Squarespace on a page but I could not see how to add it to the page.  In SquareSpace I tried to  add a "button" to a page.   When I input the embed code for the PayPal button the button would appear but the link did not work. 

Perhaps I'm choosing the wrong element to add to my page?

Can you explain why you are trying to add a PayPal button? PayPal is built into Squarespace, making it easy to sell multiple products and take PayPal payments without needing any code. You'll find a video and a guide to accepting PayPal on Squarespace here.

Thanks for your reply.  It's the mechanics of the buying process that has me befuddled. I did accept PayPal for my site (per the video) but I can't figure out how integrate it onto a new page on my site. I don't have a "store" I have one, single product.  I just wanted to add a page where visitors can go to buy the DVD.  I have had a SquaresSpace account for many years and for a previous film (www.hiroshimaschoolyard.com) I was able to add a page for buying the DVD which included a picture of the DVD and a "Buy Now" button that linked customers right to PayPal where I have set-up all the pricing, tax, shipping info, and they could use a credit card as well.  It was dead easy to set up.

 Now that SquareSpace has a new (to me) "Commerce" function, it does not seem as simple.  I'm happy to use the new tools available but I need a video that explains that simple process.

Appreciate any guidance.

...and if it easier to actually set up a simple "store" in case we do start selling other merchandise, it would be great to have a full "how to" video that explains that whole building process, soup to nuts.  Thanks!
