How to view/edit payment buttons?

I used to go main>pay and get paid>buttons

but now I cannot find the path to view or edit my buttons. I found a link that works and bookmarked it, but it seems kind of strange that I can not for the life of me figure out how to view/edit my existing buttons from my paypal dashboard.

Please don't just give me a link to the buttons page, I want to know where the path to get there myself went.

Is paypal phasing out buttons? I honestly don't know how else to collect payments without sending my clients an email containing a link generated by a button.

Hi @AquamanIX ,

Thank you for posting to the PayPal Merchant Community. 

The steps to getting to your saved buttons have changed a little. 

Here are the steps:

  • Log into your PayPal Account
  • Click on Business Tools
  • Type buttons in the Search box
  • Click PayPal buttons
  • Click Get Started
  • Click View your saved buttons

Here is one other way to get to your buttons as well:

  • Click on your name at the top right
  • Click Account Settings
  • Click on Website payments (you may need to scroll down)
  • Click on Update to the right of PayPal buttons
  • Click on View your saved buttons

We are adding new features and newer button types to the buttons that are available. Currently Website Payment's Standard is not deprecated. 

 

Thank you,

Jennifer

Those work, thanks!

 

Gotta say that I liked drop menu click access much better than the new multi-step process.

I have to agree. Took 20 minutes trying to find them on my own. For such an essential tool, it should be easy to get too. Spent another 20 minutes web search after a search on the website turned up no result for "Button".

How about putting the buttons menu back in the Pay and Get paid menu or somewhere where you can find it? I use buttons exclusively for my sales.

Greetings, and thank you for such detailed response. "Business tools?" "Search box?" I've been w Paypal for awhile and wonder if you're confusing Paypal with another service. LOL, kidding, kidding, this forum is always so serious. Anyway, any chance of helping a non-business to view/edit buttons? Many thanks in advance for any help. LOVE Paypal!

Buttons no longer shows up when searched under tools. I use buttons exclusively because I have a custom built website and I copy and paste the email link. Please bring Buttons back to the main tools page.

1) The lady's politely-phrased first response applies to Business Accounts.

 

2) For the 3rd time, I respectfully submit that there is no "Website Payments" button no matter how far we scroll down. I've gone past the Caribbean, now near New Zealand, still not seeing any "Website Payments" link.

 

3) Where are my Paypal buttons?

 

4) Why in the world won't Paypal tell us where our buttons are?

 

5) Why is this still an issue six months later?
