This is probably a very basic question, but I need help

Can someone let me know how to put a PayPal button on my site?
I hope this will simplify the money transaction aspect of my work...

Thank you.

You can give details of your paypal account by going to Settings > Fill in your profile > Financial > Payment methods accepted

It will display information that you accept payments via Paypal on top of your profile but it will be just a link to a form which requires from your entering all the details.

Alternatively you could use Paypal buttons but these buttons must have a fixed value so they are useful when you sell products which have fixed value but with translation you would need to create a button for each transaction - much more practical would be sending an invoice from your Paypal account.

Maybe if you have many small jobs you could use buttons with a minimum fee. You have instruction how to do it here

But please mind that most likely these buttons require Java Script which is by default switched off in profiles.

There is a third way which allows receiving payment via Paypal and is easy for clients - if you were a member you could use invoicing when you send an invoice this way client may pay it directly from the page with the invoice via Paypal.
