Paypal custom payment pages

10+ Year Member

Msg#: 4196 posted 4:11 pm on Aug 24, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have a UK Premier Account with Paypal and I want to set up a custom payment page. In the header of the page my email address appears in big bold letters and I'd like to change this to the sites name instead. Anyone know how to do this?

I've had no luck with paypal customer support on this one, they just refer me to the user guide which only details how to use an image.

If you upgrade to a Business account, your Business name will appear instead of your business email address. And if you want further control of the checkout process, you can upgrade to a PayPal Pro account, but this requires some developer integration on your part.

What you are seeing is the PayPal default page header. It will use your email address if you have a Personal or Premier account, and your Business name if you have a Business account.

If you want to make any further customization to the pages, you would need to create a custom page style in your Profile. However, the custom page styles do not allow you to enter custom text. You can supply an image (which could include your business name and logo, for example) to use in the header, plus you can apply page and header background colors.

Thanks guys. If I upload an image it really needs to be hosted on a secure server, which my hosting company does not have. I've done a google on secure server logo hosting and there are a few choices but does anyone have any recommendations?
