Trying to Put PayPal Buy Now Button...

I'm trying to put a PayPal Buy It Now button on my Web Page, but when I view the page, it appears as:

<form> _s-xclick "Buy Now" ... </form>

Which is text and picture not the acutal button you can click. What am I doing wrong? They say to copy the HTML from their site and put it in the Web Page. Perhaps it is in the wrong location? Where does it go?

Are you using the visual site designer or are you just using an html editor? is there a webpage we can look at?

All things considered, it should go in the body section of your site (unless I've grossly misread which section of the PayPal code this is, I don't know that one intimately).

If you're doing this with HTML Editor, remember to paste the code in the Code Editor section, not the Visual Editor!

If you are looking to add the button in Visual Site Designer, we have just recently posted an article about this which can be viewed at ( … e.693.html ).

Thank you,

I'm also trying to post the paypal code in HTML Editor. I haven't found the answers in this Forum helpful I think Coffee Cup could make a greater effort in customer support.
