As of February 2024, PayPal has phased out custom buttons for new merchants. If you have an older PayPal account, you can still create a custom PayPal button.

Until custom buttons are once again available, here is the workaround:

Go to https://www.paypal.com/buttons and log in.

Once you're on your PayPal buttons page:

  • Select Sell on Social

  • Click the plus sign to Add Product

  • Choose an image (required). If you don't have a specific image, you may opt to use your logo
  • Add a product name such as Pastel Workshop or Membership
  • Add a product description
  • Add a price and select a currency
  • Choose a shipping rate
  • Click Create

The next screen lets you know that your link is ready. 

  • Click Get Link button; it will be copied to your clipboard.

  • To add it to your site, create a button or link in a text box. 
    (the button option is available using the full screen composer)

If you have an older PayPal account the following steps still work.

1st: Create button in your PayPal account

There are multiple way to access the Paypal Buttons screen.
Here are 2 easy ways:

1. go to PayPal.com/buttons

See this FAQ for how:
How do I set up a custom Page?

Add PayPal code to your FASO Page

  • From FASO control panel
  • Click More Categories (left column)
  • Click Pages (right column)
  • Click Edit to the right of the page you wish to edit
  • Click HTML (top edge of text box)

  • Paste (Ctrl/V) code where you want button to appear

Tip: Decide where in the text box you want the button - you may want to add some blank space or text to help you find this spot in the next steps, such as PUT BUTTON HERE (you will delete that text when done).

  • Click Update
  • Save Changes

Custom PayPal buttons are generated through your Paypal account. Sales via a custom button do not go through the FASO cart. Hence, they will not listed in the Sales and Customers screen and will not receive a FASO sale notification. 
For custom buttons your client/transaction details will only show in your Paypal account. 
Sale notifications will come directly from Paypal.
