Integrating SiteMaker with PayPal (SiteMaker PRO only)



Please note that if you have purchased your Sitemaker package after the 4th June 2013 you will be using our new version of Sitemaker.

The new version creates a website in HTML5 rather than flash, making our Sitemaker website viewable on many popular phones and tablet devices.

Because of this some of the Support Centre articles may not apply to your Sitemaker configuration. To make it easier we have appended all relevant articles with HTML5 to make it easier for you to find your desired guide.

SiteMaker Pro has the ability to integrate with PayPal so you can start selling products through your website.

This guide will explain how you can add a simple 'Buy Now' button to your site that will connect to your PayPal account.

The first step will be to create a page within your website that contains a list of products that you wish to sell.

Click Insert on the toolbar then select Widget Library.
