We are having more trouble getting our PayPal account set up so that classmates can pay using PayPal without too much of a charge. Any suggestions? Thanks! Mary Ann

There are two ways you can integrate PayPal into your site, so let me be very clear on each of them:

1) If you are planning a reunion and using our built in Reunion Planner feature, the ONLY thing you need to do to accept PayPal payments on your site is plug in your PayPal email address into the Reunion Planner. Nothing else is necessary -- simply save your page and our system will automatically configure the PayPal payment mechanism for you.

2) If you want to add your own PayPal buttons to your home page or other custom page of your site (as is the case here), you need to generate the button code at PayPal. You've already got that code, now all you need to do is plug it into your site. When logged into your site click on "Edit Site Pages" and then click the "Edit" button next to the page you wish to insert your button into. Your editing component will now come up. Click on the "Source" button in the upper left corner. Navigate to the spot on your page you wish to place your button. Press control-v (or paste from the menu) to paste your source code. Now click the "Source" button again to return to your design view. Note: You will not see your button in our editor, but have no fear, it is there. Save your page. Now view your page live to see your button in action.

For more specific instructions on how to embed third party objects on your site:

Are you asking how to get reduced fees for paypal or that you are having trouble getting it to work on your site?
