    Hei Folks.

    In case some members didnt know, il post this bit of info so that your site members can get a 'Buy Now' option on their SE Classifieds posting.

    I am in the uk for my paypal but US and other countries may have a similar system. But at least this give you an idea as to what to look for.

    Notice: regular members wishing to use this paypal payment, must have a valid paypal account. Also there is a limit upto 50 items at any one time.
    Business members or regular members with Ebay / Amazon stores will have a stores link anyway.

    Step 1; place a 'Website' question into your classifieds listing creation.
    In my site i have Questions:
    1, Price (currency)
    2, Location (location) ...Optional, this helps with search.
    3, Item is: (new or Pre-Owned) (required)
    4, Buy Now (website) (this is where the paypal buy now link goes)
    5, PayPal / Amazon Merchant I.D. Number. ...(required)

    Step 2;
    sign up or login to payapl. Validate your new account if needed.

    create your 'Buy Now' option. Follow the instructions as below.

    Step 3;

    Create your PayPal advert

    Step 4;

    create your SE Classifieds advert and post the paypal link code into the 'website question'
    when you post advert it should look like this.


    buyers then click on the website link and will be taken to the paypal payment page.

    Hope this help you.
