I have an older website. Looking to upgrade, but Time/Money all that.
I still use PayPal buttons/ easy checkout.

Looking to edit existing buttons, but it looks like the only options that I now have are to create "new and improved" buttons, but do not have the link to "show/view saved buttons" for my account.

Am I the only one still having this issue?  I follow the below... Get lost after manage... because the second screenshot is all that I have options for.

I can't click on a link that doesn't exist!?

So here's what I've learned. Unfortunately, because the account is a personal account there is no ability to "edit" the older buttons, you only have the ability to create new buttons. If you were to upgrade your account to a business account you should be able to edit those buttons. 

Apologize that this may be a challenge, but I don't believe there's a workaround to editing outside of this.

Here's a link to the page, https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_button-management (Make sure you're logged in when clicking on that link).

It'd definitely be my suggestion to migrate older buttons to the newest integration method (Smart Payment Buttons from the screenshot) to ensure that you have access to the latest features. 

 

Let me know if that URL doesn't work.

Sooo Close... 
Except it's just the create a new button page for me, not a list of my old buttons.

I was hoping a link like that would work... But the PayPal site is getting too smart for that.
