How do I insert a payment button into a word document?

I'm offering on my website sample chapters of my ebook and want to include a payment button which goes directly to the purchase window.


Does anyone know how to do this?


Also, when I convert the word doc to a pdf file will the payment button still work?


Any help is much appreciated.

Re: How do I insert a payment button into a word document?

You would have to use a text or hyperlink.


You can build your own Button Text Links from scratch or take advantage of the Online Button Creator within your PayPal Account.   After generating the button code online, select the "Email" tab to view the Text Link Code.   Note, the "Email" tab will not be available if have included dropdown selections or text boxes in your item button code.   This is because you cannot include dropdown selections or text boxes in a Text or Hyperlink.


If you want to see a few manually coded text or hyperlink examples, check out this page.

If you are using Internet Explorer 8 take note. We’ll upgrade our communities in July and if you are using IE8 you won’t have a fully functional experience.
