How it works

Small businesses that want to accept payments online or in person can set up pay links, buttons, and QR codes to accept payments on the website. You don't need a developer, coding knowledge, or a website to accept payments. If you already have a website, you can copy and paste PayPal buttons.

There are 3 copy-and-paste options to accept payments. All 3 options support payment methods such as PayPal, Venmo, Pay Later, and credit and debit cards.

When a buyer places an order and makes a payment, you'll receive the order details on your PayPal dashboard. You can provide shipping details to complete the order. Payment method availability varies by region.

Steps to build pay links and buttons:


Log in to your PayPal business account. Select the Pay link or button to see a page to build your pay link and button.


Pick your settings. Add required information such as Pricing and Product name.


Optional: Add information such as Shipping fee and Tax rate %.


Select Change the look and feel to modify the look and feel of payment method options from a list of colors and styles. You'll get a preview of how the information you entered will look as a button, payment link, or QR code.


Select Build it. Copy and paste the buttons, pay links, or QR codes wherever you need them.
