How to Add a Paypal Donate Link

Filed under: — Carthik @ 3:35 am

After searching, I found this Guide to Paypal donations (.pdf), which turns out to be all you need to know about how to put a “Make a Donation” button on your weblog or website.

I haven’t got paid in a month, and the pocket is feeling the pinch. Then I got renewal notices for two old domain names I had registered, which is when I thought I probably should help you help me, if you so desire. So this site now has a Paypal “make a donation” button in the menu.

I have made a sum total of Zero dollars through my website and all this work so far, so let’s see if we can change that. On a side note, I tried to donate myself some money, just to test if everything is working fine, and also to see if I can give myself 2 cents ;) , but Paypal told me,”You cannot email money to yourself.

  2. Paypal do have a block of test numbers that you can use if you want to do testing. I haven’t done it for a while, but I think you have to register in their dev community first.

  3. You did a great job of displaying the donate link.
    If you could create a graphic as a linking logo people like me could add it to the blog on their website.
    Free advertisement helps. paying advertisers is better.
