OK, I just have to share this with you all because I searched and searched for hours and it jut about drove me nuts! I am not very computer savvy so it took me a while to figure it out … but that is the point people … I LOVE to figure things out for myself!
So after going onto my business PayPal account, and clicked on Tools -> All Tools, then here:
They have many options to choose from, but I selected the first one:
I followed the instructions – word-per-word – copied and pasted the HTML given to my website page and came out with this HUUUUUUGE “Buy Now” button! What the heck!
After much research, I finally found out who to make the button smaller. I don’t want you to have to go through this big headache so I will give you the recipe – it is actually quite simple, you’ll see!
You are going to edit the HTML to resize your PayPal button. So how do I do that, you are going to ask me? Follow these simple steps:
- When prompted (on PayPal site), copy and paste the HTML code to your page or post.
- Copy and paste the following code – only the code shown in Red font
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_cart_SM.gif" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!" style="border: 0px none ; padding: 0px; width: 96px; height: 21px;"/>
The ‘style’ attribute ensures that the PayPal button shows normally on your blog or website. You can adjust the width and height dimensions as needed.
Voila! You did it! Bravo!
