If you’re Setting up Paypal Integration With your Wishlist Membership Plugin you may need to create a Paypal Buy Now button for one off payments.
If you’re offering a monthly membership, you’ll need to create a Paypal subcribe button instead.
In this short tutorial, i’ll show you how simple it is to create a basic buy now button in your Paypal account.
Firstly, navigate to the Merchant Services Section in your PayPal Business account.
Here you’ll need to create a button for each membership level using the Item/Subscription ID specified below.
If you only have one membership level then simply create a Paypal buy now button for that level using the unique I.D generated by your Wishlist plugin.
