Getting direct links to a paypal payment page

In some instances you may want to link directly to a PayPal payment page without using the HTML button, this seems to be under-documented so here's how you do it (note that you do need to create a button in order to get the link):

Direct link from existing buttons

  • Login to your PayPal account
  • Go back to the 'My Business Setup' page and you'll see a link on the right hand side that reads 'My Saved Payment Buttons'
  • On your new button, go to the 'Actions' drop down and choose 'View Code'
  • Select the 'Email' tab to get the direct page link

Direct link for new buttons

  • Login to your PayPal account
  • Select 'My Business Setup' on the left hand side
  • Click through to 'Create payment buttons for your website' and complete the three steps to generate a button (you can use the 'Subscribe' option for recurring payments)
  • On the final screen you'll see an 'Email' tab that provides the direct link
