    Let’s take a look at the General tab. In the top part of the box you will see the different buttons that you can choose from. The number of buttons that you will have will depend on the button that you created. The Buy Now Paypal button has about 8 buttons that you can choose from. Tick the field beside the button that you want to use. You will also need to enter your Paypal Account Name in the top field.

    Other Tabs for the Paypal Button

    The other tabs are going to differ depending on the button that you chose. The buttons that have the Details tab is where you enter a description for the item. Some of the buttons have a Shipping tab. In this tab you will need to enter the shipping information. And so on with the other tabs. Most of the tabs are pretty self explanatory. You will also need to create the links that you are going to need from Paypal to activate the button or buttons.

    You can move the buttons to where you want them by clicking the button and dragging it to where you want it. To preview your button in a web browser, save the page and click File > Preview in Browser > and select the browser that you wish to preview it in.
