PayPal Element

Use this Element to allow your visitors to purchase products on your site with PayPal by displaying a PayPal "buy now" button, add to and view items in their shopping cart, or make a donation.

Tip: Add an Image Element of the merchandise near your PayPal button to showcase your products and catch your viewer's attention.
