I am using the Infinity Pro theme. On a page I'm creating, I entered the PayPal code in the text tab, saved it and viewed the page to test the button. It redirects to Paypal log-in.
Spoke with PayPal tech and they found no issues with the code. Any directions or suggestions here?https://drdeanamurphy.com/strengths-masterclass/January 22, 2018 at 2:15 pm #215620Victor FontModeratorJanuary 22, 2018 at 2:23 pm #215622
Not everyone has a Pp account. When I pay via Paypal for a product I'm not asked to loginJanuary 22, 2018 at 2:24 pm #215623
the buy now button should direct people directly to a check out pageJanuary 22, 2018 at 4:10 pm #215625Victor FontModerator
This really has nothing to do with the Genesis Framework or your theme, however, make sure you have either a premiere or business account and check that the PayPal Account Optional: radio button is set to on the Website Payment Preferences accessible from My Selling Tools under your profile options.
If you can't get it working, you should use a proper eCommerce tool or try Stripe.

I quickly created a PayPal button that goes nowhere and it worked.
However, it did provide a box for the PayPal member to login in which to use their account. It also had a spot at the bottom for those who do not have a PPal account or prefer to pay with a credit card.
I could not upload an image to show you so perhaps it will display from my site here:

Yes that's the box that I see from my button as well. I'm now understanding this gives the customer 2 options either to login to paypal or use their credit card to complete the transaction.
Thank you for chiming in. I guess this is Ppals shopping cart afterall.January 22, 2018 at 5:08 pm #215629MT1895Member
Glad to help.
If you are using PayPal as your only money/cart gateway then "BE SURE" to make it clear that your customers do not need a PayPal account to buy and to just use the option at the bottom of the page.
I can't remember the language I used as it was short, to the point and a long time ago (most people don't do a lot of reading and you don't want to miss sells because of it as I did).
I now use ThriveCart to handle my transaction as my site generates a nice income now and I can afford the services of a cart which will handle credit cards, PayPal, Stripe and more.January 22, 2018 at 5:12 pm #215630
MT1895 you are so right. I am concerned that people won't read and I'll miss the sell. I am not ready for a shopping cart expense so I'll have to tread along with PP.
I'll make a note about the cc option so people will understand.
