How to use pay pal on your blog

How to put a pay pal button on your blog... I have 2 windows open when I do this.. one with pay pal. and the other with your blog..
1.sign into your pay pal account
2. At the top of your account in the blue bar you will see these catagories.
My Account
Send Money
Request Money
Merchant Services
Products & Services
You will want to choose Merchant services.
Tools for existing PayPal merchants
Choose your button style. And answer all the questions. They are easy one, your name,, and junk like that, then go to the customize advance feature page.. The part that is highlighted is the one I use. You can put in a for shared link or wherever you have the item stored. For them to do a download after payment is cleared.
Step 3: Customize advanced features (optional)

Customize checkout pages

If you are an advanced user, you can customize checkout pages for your customers, streamline checkout, and more in this section.

Do you want to let your customer change order quantities?
Can your customer add special instructions in a message to you?
Do you need your customer's shipping address?
Ex: HTTPS://
( I copy the download code at the very beginning.. So I have it.. Also coping it and pasting on note pad is handy way to have the place where you want the pay pal to direct them to.)
Press create button and you will get a code
You are viewing your button code
There will be a box here with a code in it. Make sure you get the whole code.

Click Select Code to select all the button code.
Copy the code (CTRL+C for Windows, CMD+C for Mac -- or right-click and choose Copy).
now go to your blog and I put mine in as a widget on the side of the page. but you can put it anywhere you want. paste the code into the html ..

you paste the code in this box
Paste the code into your own code (CTRL+V for Windows, CMD+V for Mac -- or right-click and choose Paste).
Always save your buttons on the pay pal site. You will see a place to save button to your account. This way if you did not copy the code right you can go back and get it.
And you are done.
use the shout to me box if you need any help. I will try to explain it better if you need extra instructions.

I hate windows Vista

If there ever was anything that I hated.. windows vista is the it.. my computer crashed again.. so my son said we should go with vista because.. it has more security and stuff .. yeah more security.. because.. no one want to use it.. I cant believe you cant right click and move something somewhere.. you have to have 2 windows open.. and drop and drag or copy and paste.. then go back and delete the files from the old location.. that is so stupid.. I am going to have everything taken back off . wipe the computer clean and put my windows back on.. I am so frustrated right now.. I could spit bullets... so no new updates on this site till i either.. clean this of vista.. or get a new computer with windows.. I can not deal with vista. I hate it

how to make paper.. joanis way

Here is one way to make paper
1. Open a 100x100 image
2. Open your clip art image or a graphic. In your program.
In this clip art I choose the heart.
Using your selection tool . Cut out a section you would like to have paper made of.
3. Edit copy. And then using your magic wand.. Select your 100x100 tile. And paste into the selection... Then select none
4. Go to effects.. Image effect..seamless tile..
The heart is now in my tileand I seamless tile itmy seamless tile
Now you have a tile. Now you open the size of paper or background you want.
I will just do a 500x500 to show you.
Get your flood fill tool and choose pattern. Find the tile you just made and flood fill it.
That heart made this paper.
Then you can add a texture or noise or whatever you like. Or you can save the paper as is.. Then go in and play with the filters and change it around just have fun..
Now I used a filter on the paper to make it look more like fabric

That is one way to make paper..
