Can You Alter Your PayPal Payment Page?

Well, I already know you CAN alter it because I have come across it many times but how?

How do you get rid of your e-mail address at the top of the page and replace it with a banner, or something else?

Does anyone know?

    It's easy, but not intuitive to find it... from the main screen in your Paypal dashboard, find the menu item 'Profile'. When you 'mouse over' you see a submenu - this isn't what you want. Simply click on the menu item 'Profile'. It brings up a new page with 3 columns of links. In the third column - on the right - fourth up from the bottom is a link 'Custom Payment Pages' - that's what you're looking for.

    Hope this helps

      I covered the topic a few weeks ago on my blog, here's a copy/paste:

      1. The first thing you need to do is create a header image, this will go at the top of the page. The ideal size for the header (as stated by PayPal) is 750px * 90px.

      2. When the header has been created, you need to upload it to your web space, BUT, and this is important. It needs to be uploaded to a secure server, if you don’t upload it to a secure server your browser will display an “Insecure Items On Page” error message and this could put off your buyers.

      Most hosts will have a shared SSL certificate that you can use, I uploaded my image to my D9 Hosting account, and the image is stored securely here:

      If you are also with D9 Hosting, the URL to your shared space will be: (repace "bullseye" with your server name)

      If your host doesn’t provide you with a shared SSL….maybe it’s time to switch to someone else!

      3. With your image created and uploaded, you need to log into your PayPal account and click on:

      Profile > Custom Payment Pages

      4. The next step is to add a new payment page; you can do this by clicking on the “Add” button.

      5. You then simply need to give the theme a name, and then enter the URL of your secure header image in the “image URL” field.

      You can also specify different page and border colours, but I decided to stick with just the header!

      When you are done, click on “Save”.

      6. The final step is to go back to the Custom Payment Pages overview page and set your design as the primary style, when you have done this all of your PayPal payment pages will use your new design!
