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

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

Thank you.

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 https://www.paypal-business.co.uk/merchantservices/set-up-your-payment-solution/adding-payment-buttons.htm

But please mind that most likely these buttons require Java Script which is by default switched off in Proz.com 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 Proz.com invoicing https://www.proz.com/invoice/ when you send an invoice this way client may pay it directly from the page with the invoice via Paypal.
