Nowadays online money transfers play an important role in the ever changing world of businesses. The newly implemented PayPal button is a convenient solution for those who need an easy and secure way of money transfer on their MyCylex website.


We all know about eBay's success, but did you know that PayPal is eBay's subsidiary business? With more than 140 million active registered accounts, PayPal has now become kind of a 'hotshot' when it comes to secure online payments and donations. This is why we have found it suitable to implement a PayPal widget into the MyCylex editor. The PayPal button has two main functions. On the one hand, it serves as a way for your customers to send payments to your business. On the other hand, it is also the solution if your customers want to make a donation to your business.

In order to integrate the PayPal button to your website, naturally you need to have a PayPal account. If you already have one, you are welcome to use it, if not, you can sign up for free on PayPal's official website.

Using this widget is a piece of cake. All you need to do is drag and drop the widget to your website and then complete the required fields: determine the email address, the name and ID of your item/product or organization (this is the tracking number or ID that you have previously assigned to your product, when setting up your PayPal account). You also have to define the currency and the amount of money for the specified product or donation.

You can choose between the 'Buy now' and the 'Donate' button types and you can customise the button's appearance. For e.g. you can use the small button version, or you can hide the credit card logos, it's up to you.

In the end, just like with the other widgets, you just need to click on ‘Save’ and publish the website again, in order for the visitors to be able to use the newly added PayPal button. It's child's play really, and people will be pleased to have the opportunity to support your cause or purchase your products by making an online payment. Don't waste any more time, try out this new widget! The results are guaranteed!
