    Post PayPal

    Forgive me if I should just hit the PayPal Help Pages, but hey, it's good to chat isn't it?

    Is there any technological limitation that stops me using 'Buy Now' PayPal buttons on my standards compliant mobile websites?

    I mean, is it Bango and only Bango, or can I just rely on established PayPal methods?

    Cheers!

    I am not sure on that one, best to fire off an email to them and ask. I believe they have paypal.mobi, i dont know if they are using it though.

    Well, it doesn't look like paypal.mobi resolves anywhere, but that's another matter.

    Email PayPal? Hah, I'm unsure if customer services would have anything helpful to say after spending all of 1.3 seconds reading my mail!

    Paypal.mobi bounces back with a server error, which seems to me that the nameservers are pointed nowhere.

    For everyone who complains about a .mobi that redirects to an mdot (m.something.com), this is the alternative. Letters to the webmaster anyone?

    Hi Ya All!
    I can help you out a bit. To enable paypal on your mobile site you need to first have a paypal verfied business account setup. Once you have that you are given access to the api. BTW the buy now button is the only option available for mobile paypal. Now anyone can buy from your site if they have signed up for mobile in there paypal.com account. The laws governing digital downloads vary though. In the US paypal doesnt accept digital download option. In Canada and the UK they do.

    Unfortunately, within PayPal, I'm unable to find any specific code / buttons for the mobile web, or a sniff about this API...

    All I can find is stuff about 'PayPal Mobile' for buyers; but I need helps selling on the mobile web!


    "To use PayPal Mobile, visit mobile.paypal.com in your phone's browser. You can check your PayPal account balance, send money, buy eBay items and shop for goods and services."
    Can anyone direct me as to how to put 'Buy' buttons on my mobile website? Or, easier perhaps, can anyone show me a mobile website that uses such?

    Cheers
