      I didn't know you could do this! I have added the logo to mine but thought I would then just have to invoice people through Paypal? Instructions re: how people can pay directly through your own site would be appreciated from me too!

        Right you obviously need to have a Paypal account set up.

        1. Click on Merchant Tools label.
        2. Click on the Paypal Shopping cart on the KEY FEATURES BOX.
        3. I am assuming you don't already have a shopping cart so click on Step 1 integrate the paypal shopping cart (click the bit that is underlined in blue).
        4. Click GET STARTED
        5. Then you need to put in all the details of your products, like name/reference, cost, currency you accept payment in etc. Select which button you want to use.

        YOU CAN EITHER CREATE A BUTTON THEN OR

        6. If you want to add VAT, postage etc click ADD MORE OPTIONS. There are lots of options on this page to let you customise your paypal button. Remember to select a view basket because this will need to go on each page so your customers can check how much they are spending.

        When you have done all this save it and you will be given an HTML code to put onto your site beside your item. Voila.

        Hope this helps. Paypal has a guide also that will take you through this.

        Cheers.

            How easy is it to change the items in the shopping cart when new items are added to the website

              Really easy, just make a new button as above and replace the code.

              If you are changing the price etc of an item all you need to do is go into the html code and change the price.

              Hope this helps.

                I agree with Lisa it is pretty easy - depending on your coding ability you can make the button code dynamic which means you won't have to create new buttons but imo it is pretty simple to use!

                Sorry lisa can't agree and give you rep becuase i have already done it recently!
