Advanced Payment Solutions
PayPal Payments Standard

If you have a PayPal Business or Premier account, you can use the PayPal Button Creation Tool to create the HTML code needed to place a PayPal button on your website. The generated HTML code, when pasted into one of your website pages, displays a PayPal button that lets customers use their PayPal account to purchase the items associated with the button. Adding a PayPal button to your website does not require advanced coding experience.

Connect with PayPal

Connect with PayPal (formerly Log In with PayPal) enables a customer to log into your website or app using their PayPal credentials or they can link their PayPal account to your website or app so that basic information can be shared.
