    Simple PayPal link question!

    I'd like a simple link to do two things: Automatically put my E-mail address as the one to receive the payment, and automatically include $6.95 as the shipping amount. It would be something like this:

    https://www.paypal.com/pal=Me@NoSpam.Com?ship=$6.95
    (or this)
    https://www.paypal.com/pal=Me@NoSpam.Com/ship=$6.95

    but I know these are not right and I really don't know where to search for the answer.

    Thanks, Bill

    If you have a fixed shipping rate, you can just add the item price and shipping rate together and change the bold price to the correct value.

    You can have paypal generate buynow links in your paypal account. Just go to Merchant Tools, then Buy Now Buttons.

    PayPal uses an HTML form link to add things like shipping and email addresses. One nice thing about them is that the form is highly customizeable once you get the basic coding.

    I tried this, but it locked the purchase amount at $6.95 and asked the purchaser to enter the shipping. What I need is the exact opposite: Lock the shipping at $6.95 and leave the purchase amount up to the purchaser. Can anyone help?

    FWIW, I did play with the above code quite a bit, as well as Buy Now Buttons in PayPal, but never did get it the way I want! Obviously I'm computer challenged!

    Thanks, Bill

    I figured it out by downloading the PayPal Integration Manual, then finding the rules for options! It turned out to be very simple:

    Thanks, Bill
