You’ve created a beautifully designed sales funnel with your free ClickFunnels account, but now you want to add a payment page so that users can pay you directly from their credit card. This article will teach you how to do exactly that.

The Basics Of Adding A Payment Page

This is pretty basic stuff, but it’s worth mentioning. When you add a payment page to your account, you are changing the design of your entire funnel. Anything from the very top to the bottom will be affected. For example, your CTA (Call To Action) is going to be relocating to the bottom. That’s because the last thing you want is to lose a sale due to technical difficulties with the checkout process.

Another thing you will need to do is make sure that all the links on your website are verified. This is especially important if you’re selling affiliate products because there are a lot of people out there trying to trick you into giving them your login details. By verifying all the links on your site, you’re ensuring that every single person who clicks on the link is actually being directed to the site and not a phishing scam.

What About Custom Domains For Payment Pages?

With a standard WordPress installation, you can use the default.com domain for your website (and yes, you can use.co.uk,.org, or whatever you want for your organization). If you’re using a custom domain for your site, you will need to point the domain to your server.

However, there’s no reason why you can’t use the same domain for your payment page as your rest of the site. The main difference is that you will need to configure the name of the page in the browser. So instead of yourwebsite.com, you would enter yourcustomdomain.com/paypal for your payment page. This makes it much easier for users once they’ve entered their payment information, because everything is in the same place.

Why Use A Payment Processor Like PayPal?

PayPal is the largest payment processor in the world, so it’s a good choice for any business, regardless of size. What’s more, PayPal doesn’t limit you to taking only payment through credit cards. You can accept payments through any form you please, including e-checks.

Since PayPal is such a ubiquitous presence, it’s an easy choice for users who have already established a rapport with your brand. They’re also more than willing to give you extra security features should you need them. For example, if you’re accepting donations from anonymous sources, PayPal will notify you via email if there’s any suspicious activity. You can also choose to have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled on your account.

Additionally, if you’re looking for a payment processor that offers high throughput rates, has a global reach, and offers simple integration with your site, then PayPal is the answer. They even have a merchant account that’s especially tailored to online shops in case you’re running a business online.

How Do I Add A PayPal Button To My Site?

PayPal offers a number of different ways to add a button to your website so that users can easily make a donation or purchase something from your site. Let’s run through a few of them.

The simplest is to just download the button from PayPal and add it to your site. If you’re using WordPress, you can easily add the button using the standard WordPress plugins.

Another way is to add a form on your site with the PayPal button as the input type. You can then ask users to enter their payment information on the spot or redirect them to a thank you page where they can enter their payment details. The benefit of doing it this way is that it doesn’t require you to have a PayPal account.

Still another way is to embed the PayPal widget directly into your site. This can be a little tricky, but it’s still better than having them click a button and go to another site for payment. Plus, it looks more like a real-world PayPal account and doesn’t distract from the actual content on your site.

How Does The PayPal Button Work?

When a user clicks the PayPal button, the payment information is submitted to PayPal via a secure HTTPS connection. Once the information is verified, PayPal will notify you via email that the transaction has gone through. You can then apply the funds to your account as usual. You can also choose to have PayPal notify you via text message in case you’re running an on-the-go business (for example, if you’re driving or cycling to work each day).

PayPal handles all the financial transactions for your business, so all you need to do is provide the website with the login details for your account. This way, when a user clicks the PayPal button on one of your webpages, they will be directed to the site and not a phishing page where their login details are stolen. Not a single dollar will be lost to fraudulent activity.

Can I Use More Than One PayPal Button On My Site?

Yes, you can use more than one PayPal button on your site. However, you must ensure that each button has a unique, identifiable DPP ID (which stands for Dash Promoting Product). You can find your DPP ID by going to My Account, navigating to the “Transaction” section, and then clicking on the “View Details” button for a specific transaction. This will take you to a page that shows you the details for that transaction, including the DPP ID. Make sure to keep track of these unique identifiers because you will need them in the future.

What About Other Payment Processors?

If you’re looking for a less ubiquitous payment processor, you can use something like Stripe or Square for added security and flexibility. Like PayPal, these companies also offer a robust amount of functionality for allowing payments through your site. However, keep in mind that these processors require a little bit of a learning curve.
