I'm working on my website. I'm trying to add paypal "buy now" buttons. First I did them all, thinking wow that was easy, only to find out that none of them worked. When I posted them parts of the HTML code were missing so I added them in and now it works...sorta. When I click on the button it brings up an invoice for a different item. On one page I have three pairs of earrings. I made three different buttons and edited them separately, but they all go to the same invoice. Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong? I hope I explained it good enough. I've been working on this for hours and just can't get it, I think I'm loosing my mind.

Hmm... I use Mals, but I'm familiar with Paypal and checked out their button code and it should look like this:

Quote
<form name="_xclick" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="me@mybusiness.com">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Teddy Bear">
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="12.99">
<input type="image" src="http://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/x-click-but01.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!">
</form>

So for each item you should be changing these two lines:

Quote
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Teddy Bear">
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="12.99">

If that doesn't work... maybe post the code(s) you're using and it might be easier to see what's up Smiley
