How to add a PayPal button to your Blog-sell directly from your blog!

You may have seen the PayPal button on my blog page under my kMT sponser / advertising ad (Still only $5 a month!!). You may be surprised how easy this is to do! Technically, you could sell anything you wanted to right from your blog as long as you have a PayPal account! (that's the first step) Here's how to do it:

  • Click on the Merchant Services tab on the top tabs

  • Choose the "buy now" button

  • Fill out the form (includes choosing the price of the item)

  • Pay Pal creates the button html code for you.

  • Go back to your blog.

  • Add the html gadget.

  • Describe what you are selling and add the html code for the button.


You can also add buttons for donations to a cause and gift certificates. I have had purchases, and it works great! The $ goes directly into your PayPal account.


  1. Awesome, awesome awesome!! What great information Tara, I didn't do something like this for a charity idea, because figured it would be too much of a burden. That must have taken all of 5 minutes...thanks for such great information!!! I'll have to come up with something, just to use it now, LOL.

  2. I know, it's so easy huh! yay Paypal for making it easy for us :)

  3. Oh, I didn't realize you could do this. I'll have to check this out and add it to my blog. Would love to sell something right off my blog. Thanks for posting this.
