Paypal donation button?


Well-known member
Can someone point me in the right direction on how to make a paypal donate button via HTML? I know Paypal had a thing on their site to make buttons for Donate, Checkout, etc.

However, it's been some time and I can't seem to find it on their website. The info I do find for it, doesn't work for me......

Alternatively, is there a paypal donate add-on for XF2 like there was for XF1 that isn't overly expensive? There was one for XF1 that was free, forgot who coded it.
