need info when paypal buy now - integrate form?

Post by webworkhorse » Sat Apr 11, 2015 2:58 pm

When someone buys from me(I sell ad space), I need additional information from, description.

They only have one or two selections kinda, "pick a state" or " pick another state" a simple Paypal button should work, I just don't know how to integrate the two elements (paypal button and form info i need). ... elving.php

How can I make this easy for someone to whole "ill send you an invoice" really isn't working. I am not good at coding, so keep it as simple as possible.

I don't want their money without the info, and I don't want the info without the money.

Also, off the topic a little, since you're at the page, and more of a strategy question...should I bother making mobile versions of this or other forms? Tablet version? Not worth?

A PayPal button is a form on its own, so you cannot put the button on a standard form.
You can either user PayPal options (as documented in the help), or convert the PayPal button to a standard form (right click and select 'Convert to form')

Or you can implement a more advanced webshop: ... 10&t=57726
