Setting Up Paypal Donations by demonicintuition Setting Up Paypal Donations by demonicintuition
If you need help setting up a Paypal account, upgrading your account or even if you have problems with the link Paypal provides you just drop me a note and I'll see what I can do :) I may even make separate tutorials for those in the future :aww:

All screencaps are from Paypal.com. Obviously ^^;

ADDED NOTES TO REMEMBER:
:bulletblue: If your paypal email address starts with a '' P', as mentioned in the tutorial, it will change to =P in the link :XD: All you have to do is ADD a new email account to your paypal account. Just set up a freebie one through gmail if you have to, and 'forward' the emails to your normal account. Simple, eh?
Same thing happens with the 'receipt title' section. If it starts with " P' you need to change it to a different letter.
:new: If your link still has a =P at the end of the code just scrap everything after the currency code.
EG: USD (American Dollars), EUR (Euros), AUD (Aussie Dollars) etc..
Just delete everything after that 3-letter code :)

Edit: I made a boo-boo ^^; I just checked and =B ('B' in your email address) is fine. It won't change into an emote :aww:

Hi, I have a question! I know -and accept- the fact that we can't make money out of "sexy things" with Paypal. And I don't plan to, because I agree to their policies for using their services.

However, I do draw adult content, including nudity (mostly partial and tasteful, though?) and it is in my gallery obviously (but not sex, since it isn't even allowed on DA). I am concerned I may have trouble with Paypal simply because of that? I mean, I guess if they restricst my account because of it, I can show them that even though I have that content I didn't "sell it" and I didn't use paypal for anything related to it, but it is still a big concern to me, I heard such ugly terrifying stories about Paypal freezing accounts and keeping all the money because of stupid false claims they make against the users!

So, I guess you got your "restriction" solved somehow? Did they hear you out about the matter? Is artistic nudity actually allowed?

Heh, Um, i saw that it says:


"Note: This button is intended for fundraising. If you are not raising money for a cause, please choose another option. Nonprofits must verify their status to withdraw donations they receive. Users that are not verified nonprofits must demonstrate how their donations will be used, once they raise more than $10,000. "


So......should I be worried? ^^;

 I don't really have much of a "cause" other than ....myself. XD

It's plain free / easy to use.
You simply can use it for ebay, for instance.

Juuuuuust realised I'm a silly ol' bear :)

On the paypal website they should have buttons available for your to download (usually they say 'donate now' or something similar).

Save that button image and upload it somewhere (you may even be able to upload it to your scraps).

Whatever the link is for that image, copy it :)

Then type in the following (I'm putting my notes in between ~'s):

< a href="____________" >< img src="#######" > < /a >

~______ is the link paypal gave you for your donations to go to. That's the link you had already.
~###### is the link to the paypal image button you uploaded.
~ Remove the space between the < and the 'a href'.
~ Remove the space between the ____" and the >
~ Remove the space between the < and 'img src'
~ Remove the space between ###" and the >
~ Remove the space between the < and the /a
~ Remove the space between the /a and the >

Sorry - I had a blondehtml moment ;)

Aw luv, it's been a few years since I wrote this and its changed quite a bit since then I imagine :( I don't use paypal anymore but there should be an option after filling in all your details for whether or not you want a button. I think you just choose a different section of code on the second page (after it has generated the HTML coding). It might even be as much as a checkbox you click on to say you want a button.

Sorry I can't help more :(

This is really great! Thank you for this :clap:

I'll use this on my stock account as I would really like to upgrade to a Digi SLR for better high ISO images and be able to use better lenes. Donations would REALLY help, I'm sooo broke

But do people donote, I seem to have rotten luck when it comes to that sort of thing :tears:

I've always wondered how to do this. :slow:

I'm not sure if it helps here, but you can actually get past the =P turninging into =P by simply inserting <i></i> tags between the two letters.

So... =<i></i>P :pointr: =P
