Adding a Donations button to Wordress

First install the  PayPal Donations plugin.

Follow the plugin set up. After you have set up the plugin, you will notice that when you click on the Donation button on your page you get redirected to your PayPal account with your email address pasted across to top of the page. Now this is not a problem  for your donations but it could allows spammers the possible access to you email address. What I wanted was to change the email address to a logo. It took a me a while to realize it was not done in the plugin but my PayPal account web page.

Next sign into your PayPal account and click on Profile then lower down  More Options .

This brings you to the Selling Preferences page, then click on Custom Payment page.

When you get here click on ADD.

You will see a box for Header Image URL.

This logo must be on a secure https server also known as a SSL server. You can do a search on SSL Image Hosting and find a few free and paid choices.  I personally use SSLPic wich is free. Go to their site and follow their setups and they email you a secure URL location that you can copy into your PayPal Header Image URL secure http box.

You can click on our Donate button on the right bar,  just see what the logo looks like. You do not need to donate just take a look.  We used a free program called GIMP which is a open source graphic like PhotoShop to design our logo and photo’s. I will post a article all about GIMP in the future.
