Need Help With PayPal and Wordpress.com

8 replies
I need help with this. I have a wordpress.com site and I'm trying to integrate a PayPal order form into my site.

Here's my problem: I generated the code in PayPal copy and paste it into the appropriate spot in the html. I can see it in the visual section, but when I go to update it it remove half the code and on my blog doesn't show the order form and it does not show up in the visual anymore either.

Can someone please help me?

Thanks

    I always have trouble in Wordpress when I switch from HTML to Visual or vice versa. Try to stick with one of those and see if it works.

      I recommend that you DO NOT use WordPress.com for commercial purposes. You can read my blog post about it here...

      WordPress.org vs. WordPress.com

      Anyway, that being said, if you really want to use WordPress.com, try this to fix your Paypal problem.

      Instead of using the Paypal website code try using the email code.

    Did you read their TOS before attempting to sell anything from a WP.COM blog?
    Just asking because you may end up with a deleted blog in seconds...

    As noted, check wordpress.com TOS - I don't believe you're allowed to monetize those blogs too much.

    Try this. When in the HTML section, hit SAVE before you go back to visual. See if that helps.

    Don't even think about it: as soon as one person "reports" it, or one Wordpress employee sees it for any other reason ... end of site!
