| March 10, 2011

Donations are the backbone of any nonprofit organization. A great, free way to market requests for donations is to add a PayPal Donate button to your blog. If you have a Blogger blog, installing the button is easy. If you have a WordPress.org blog, it’s even easier. However, for the nonprofits using free WordPress.com blogs, working to install a PayPal button can seem intimidating. I know it was for me, at first.

1. Log in to your PayPal account.

2. Click the Merchant Services tab and look for the “Create Buttons” area.

3. Select your desired button. For our purposes, we will be creating a Donate button.

12. In the blank area of your new Text widget, type the following code (replace “PASTE YOUR LINK HERE” with the link you previously copied from PayPal):

13. Replace PASTE YOUR LINK HERE with the link you previously copied from PayPal. DO NOT delete the quotation marks! Only affect the letters in the words PASTE YOUR LINK HERE!!!!

14. Click Save.
