Add a Buy Now Button with Multiple Choices

Custom PayPal button for various purchase options

You can create a custom PayPal button for a drop-down list of purchase options. This works great if you're selling prints of different sizes and types, greeting cards, etc.

NOTE: if you only want to add 2 choices, click here to see the FASO feature for Only Need 2 Choices section at the bottom of this document.

Key Points

Under Item name add the name of the individual work of art. (This field changes for each button created for each piece of artwork.)

Clicking Customize text or appearance allows you to use a smaller button, change language or user your own button image.

You can add shipping fees to your overall item fee (which is entered above in price).

Skip Step 2, if you do not need PayPal to track inventory.

Step 3 offers more advance features, such as adding special instructions such as 'Email address for jpeg', or to select Yes for your customer's shipping address.

Add the address of your FASO Works page (usually yourdomainname.com/works) in the next two blocks so that once the buyer checks out of PayPal, they are taken back to your website.

Happy Fact

PayPal saves your Custom Buttons so you can edit them or create similar ones later.

Add the Button Code to the Image

After you copy the PayPal code for your button, paste the code to your FASO artwork.

You can first add descriptive text about each image if you want, and a blurb like 'To purchase this image, click on Add to Cart for options.'

  • Log into FASO control panel
  • Click Artwork icon

  • Find your image
  • Click on the thumbnail image (left column) or the word edit (right column)
  • Scroll down to Description text box area 
  • click on HTML (top edge of text box)

  • Paste your PayPal code (CTRL/V) where you want button to appear
  • Click Update

  • Click Save Changes
Be Aware:

PayPal tends to change their steps regularly. We try to keep up, but if these don't work, please refer to PayPal's Help center
If you experience PayPal issues, try another browser.
