integrating payapl button on website
I can't figure out for the life of me how to add a simple paypal button to my google site. I have 4 buttons, Smart button, Pay on Social, Donate, and Subscribe. Creating a Smart Button is impossible it seems. It takes me to the developer page and goes over all sorts of coding and crap I don't understand. I am not selling on social and am not receiving donations. I watched the videos posted about the smart button that are on payapls developer site but those are completely useless for anyone who doesn't have a degree in Computer Science. Does anyone know how I can add simple buy buttons to my website? If not, I may just close my account with paypal and go with Stripe. With them you can just build your button and embed the code and you are done. I called Paypal support and the lady told me to watch the videos of the guy coding. That was zero help.
Good day @BSWW,

I would suggest to please follow below steps via PayPal Business account. Create a button link and copy/paste in your website.
Login PayPal.com >> click on "settings icon" >> go to "Account settings" >> Website payments >> PayPal buttons >> select "Sell on Social" button type >> fill required details >> get the item link.
Login PayPal.com >> go to direct link "https://www.paypal.com/buttons/" >> follow the above steps.

That is the problem. The smart buttons are too complicated for me and apparently for some others as well from what I have read. I have no idea how to use any of that script to make a button. I know paypal use to have a buy now button, as pictured above, for business accounts. Getting rid of it was a bad idea as it forces people over to other competitors who dont make you code to add a simple buy now button.
