How do I create a PayPal Button for WordPress?


How do I create a PayPal Button for WordPress to seek Donations to support the cost of maintaining my Blog.


Please note that I am not selling any products. I am not a charitable organization.


I am seeking donations to defray the cost of my WordPress Blog and for research materials I need to purchase to use in promoting the Life, Work and Legacy of Carl Jung.


I would like Donors to choose whatever amount they wish to donate and not be restricted to a single amount.


I am able to do this with GoFundMe and would like to do this with PayPal.


Thank you

I may not have been clear in my inquiry so allow me to clarify.

1. I am not a formal business and am not selling any products.

2. I am not an organized charity.

3. I am an individual who wishes to seek donations to help defray the costs of maintaining my blog.

4. I am trying to find an appropriate PayPal Button to do this allowing donations in whatever amount the donor chooses.


Could you kindly provide me with specific instruction on how to accomplish this to fit my individual needs?


Thank you
