Add Customized PayPal Donate Button Below Blogger Posts


donate Below every post at “MY Blogger Tricks” you have seen a PayPal donate button customized with some Author description next to it. It’s indeed a wizard tool that helps you tremendously with your Blog’s revenue. Some people are really generous and they do help new bloggers and keep them motivated with their precious donations. Some great people have even donated us $20-$25 just for making them smile. :) I had kept this little PayPal donation code for my premier services but I thought it would be nicer if I share it with all those who wish to go forward. See a screen shot below,

How to add Customized PayPal Donate Button To Blogger?

Note:- Before adding the customized code shared below to blogger if you wish to try it on MBT HTML Editor and customize the look then its not a bad idea. :)

As usual I have tried my best to keep it simple. So here we go,

  1. Go To Blogger > Design > Edit HTML
  2. Back up your template
  3. Check the Expand Widget Templates box
  4. Search for data:post.body
  5. Just below it paste the code below,

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>

  <table border='0' cellpadding='2' cellspacing='0' width='590'><tbody>
      <tr>
        <td><div style='border:5px solid #37BD07; padding:5px 10px; margin-right:5px;'>  <br/> PASTE PAYPAL DONATE BUTTON CODE RIGHT HERE
</div> </td>

        <td>
          <p align='justify'><font color='#2FAA2F'><em><strong>Respected Readers:</strong></em></font>
                  <br/><em>WRITE YOUR SHORT REQUEST MESSAGE HERE</em></p>
       </td>
      </tr>
    </tbody></table>
</b:if>

Replace PASTE PAYPAL DONATE BUTTON CODE RIGHT HERE with your PayPal code that you got earlier. And replace WRITE YOUR SHORT REQUEST MESSAGE HERE with something that may catch reader’s attention. You can get an idea from my request message.

  6. Save your template and visit your blog and see it hanging in action :)

How To Customize The Code?

  • To Change the width of the widget change the value width='590'
  • To Change the border size and colour change border:5px solid #37BD07

That’s it!

Please not that if PayPal is not available in your countries then you can use Donate button of any Online account that you may have. If you needed any help just let me know. If this tutorial helped you a little then kindly consider contributing a small donation. :)

  2. Well I don't know if its only me because when I login to paypal I don't see any donate button under merchant services...I just see Buy Now, Subscriptions and some other two...

    This problem is there from the start...
    Before too and even yesterday before you made this trick I tried to put a Donate Button on my new site but same problem was coming..

    So I needed to logout and then go to Donate Button page and then create one..
    Just what I didn't got through this method was the Secure Merchant ID...Do that make difference..??

    Now a question for putting this donate button...:
    Is it a good idea to put a donate button below each and every post for a NEWBIE BLOGGER or someone like me who have a site where you can download ebooks for free which is not actually called as blogging...

    Waiting for your answer...

    Thank You

    ---------------
    Lol! you guys surely made it a social platform but its ok unless the discussion is related to blogging. :p
    And I visited that website thanks for informing. I am surely tired of telling people again and again to respect copy rights but some people will never stop. I just hope we understand how much sweat others shed in creating new things out of nothing and it requires time and effort. Sharing is good but if credits are attached. I just hope newbie bloggers will bring up a positive change InShAllah.

    Now coming to queries
    ---------------------
    Sam I have received all your comments on the Social Buttons post. They were marked as spam wrongly so I published them.

    For your question with paypal the merchant ID is just for your help so that if you create several buttons then you may be able to recognize which button is for which site. Its more like giving your button a name. No its optional not important.


    I thank you again Anjani and Sam. Thanks for being supportive. Please tell me your actual names so that I remember them.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well Mohammad why don't you do something where people will not be able to edit the credits...
    Like putting the credit in javascript just like Abu Farhan did in one of his page navigation widget...

    This will not completely this problem but will surely reduce it because many of them do not mess with javascript...
    Also this should be done not in all your widgets but for some specific and very important widgets...

    Now about donate button..

    I think you missed the part that whether it is a good idea to put a donate button below each and every post for a NEWBIE BLOGGER or someone like me who have a site where you can download ebooks for free which is not actually called as blogging...
    Right now I have Donate button in the footer...

    I think Anjani's original name is Anjani and mine I will mail you again for security reasons... :P

    Thank You

    you are right sam my original name is anjani kumar soni.pal you are thinking too much about security don't tell me that you are next julian assange :p
    just joking pal

    @mohammad
    your Tutorials have helped me a lot,so i am going to put your blog button on my blog :D
    check here:

    wish you and your family a happy new year have a blast

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sorry but I have valid reasons for the security..

    Btw I have invited you in Gmail..
    Please accept the request..

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Sam
    The idea is valid and it surely works. Encoding a code just another method but the problem is that I often have to edit my template and complex things will delay the time required to update the codings or edit them. Though I often report to blogger and flag those authors who violate the copyrights and fortunately Blogger has always helped me in this case by taking strict action against such bloggers.

    Sam a paypal Donate button is required where you think you have done enough for readers and now you deserve a little contribution from them. Ofcourse you should add it below every post. Because majority of traffic comes from serach engines. People's attention is greatly drawn towards donation once they have read the post. People who are not bloggers often don't look at widgets on sidebars. So adding it there wont help.

    And yeh your security issues have doubted me too now! :P

    @Anjani
    Thanks for adding the MBT badge to your blog. Thanks a lot for the favour dude! :)
    And glad to know your first name is Anjani. :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Mohammad
    My majority of traffic comes Direct (Almost 85%) through my files which are downloaded from forums etc..

    As my site is just one month old I think I won't add it on each and every post...

    I will add it once its old enough and when I will have a devent flow on traffic day...

    Right now I have around 50 visits per day...

    And about the security I think I mailed you my name and with the detail on why I am so security conscious...:P

    Thank You
    Samsexy98

  17. Oopps sorry...
    My majority traffic is 65% (Direct)and not 85%... :P

  18. i don't have the donate button on my paypal..how?

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Nice Dream
    Yea me too don't have that donate button...
    Dnt why..

    But do one thing to get it...
    Logout from you paypal account and then go to the following url and create one...
    https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_donate-intro-outside

    Just one thing you won't get with this is the Merchant ID and that is just optional and not a big thing to worry at all...

    Please do not login while creating the button because if log in then you won't see the donate button again..

    Hope this will help...

    Thank You

  21. @Sweety
    What the hell was that??

    First of all do not guess my name at all. :P

    I just told you to give the credit for the template which is made by Mohammad and nothing else and you should respect him.

    I just wanted you to change your footer where you have written "Template Style by Sweety" which is wrong. You should have written "Template Style by Mohammad | Customized By Sweety". The later one is just perfect. I already explained you this before.

    I am NOT talking about the content you have published. I am just talking about the template you are using.

    You know Mohammad has a legal right to Sue you and can drag you to the court but I know he will not do this. That's why I requested you to give credit.

    Always remember the quote "Give Respect, Take Respect".

    Hope you will understand.

  22. Ok but cant any other person make a same template ? cant u see the difference between mine n this blog ? and for saying all these things there is a manner. why are you using bad languages ? It hurt me ok. You hurt me without any reason. See what you told me earlier

    IS IT A JOKE ? MY EMOTIONS ARE JOKE ? WHY ARE YOU HURTING ME LIKE THIS ? STILL YOU ARE HURTING ME. I NEVER EXPECTED THESE TYPE OF STATEMENTS FROM ANYONE. GOOD BYE FOREVER.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Sweety
    I have no intention of hurting you baby.

    I just don't like people who tell lie.

    If you have made that full template then simply prove it to me and I am in no way underestimating you or anyone else. :)

    And do not tell Good Bye Forever, etc. words because you are on the net and you are always welcome for any help needed on the net whether you hate us or love us. :)

    I think I am simple and clear this time.. Ain't I..??

  35. I was just surfing and came here. Saw the year and half old debate I had. Was just laughing on myself that how good or different I was. I remembered everything that happened that time. But good to see that Sweety atleast have written MBT in the footer.

    I don't know if Mohammad or Anjani or Sweety is watching this post anymore or not but I am always watching you guys :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. @sam

    I still remember that and I honestly find it funny even today. There are a lot of people you debated with. = p You can write a whole ebook of your memories on MBT!

    Sweety and most like her are interesting people and I am really glad to see the credits now. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  37. @Mohammad
    Hehe... I did debated with lots of people hear on MBT but I always had valid points which lead to victory in almost every debate :)

    I can never forget the memories I have on MBT. I came on MBT some days after my birthday in June 2010 and my first comment was on Contact Me Form tutorial which is still not updated :p

    Sweety and most like her are obviously interesting people to talk. I not just debated with but also learned from them something in some or the other way.

    I wish those days could come back.
