Generating Paypal Button Code to Replace the Template Code
Replacing the Template Paypal Form Code
If you require newer button code, or more options in your Paypal forms, you can use code generated (created) in your Paypal account to add to your template pages. Check under "Merchant Services" in your Paypal account.
Support for generating buttons is provided by Paypal. Please check in your Paypal account if you have any problems with their button creators.
Template Paypal code example:
The following code is included in most Allwebco templates. In most cases this code can simply be edited with your information to setup to receive payments on your website.
Generated Paypal code example:
The following example code can be generated (created) in your Paypal account under "Merchant Services" to replace your template Paypal code. (Do not use the code from this page for your form.)
Using your generated code with the template button style:
Many Allwebco templates include custom "input" buttons. In this case you may want to keep the original button "input" line and not use the created "input" line. You can remove all the template form code, but maintain the "input" type="image" or type="submit" line in the form code. Then paste in your generated code and remove the "input type="image"" from the created code. See highlighted lines of code above in the 2 examples.
Is the template code outdated?:
No. The code used in Allwebco templates is code used on millions of websites around the world. Although Paypal is changing the way their code is added to websites, it would be unlikely that they would disallow older code due to the millions of websites that still use the older code.
Advantages of generated code:
If you generate your code in your Paypal account you can keep track of all your buttons and also make changes to your items for sale in your Paypal account, rather than editing HTML pages.
This includes editing prices, return pages, item names, shipping and so on.
