How do I create a Paypal URL for redirecting after the form is submitted?

This is something that you would need to create within Paypal first. I am not exactly sure of the procedure for this within Paypal. Once you have the payment URL, simply set the redirect to it (Edit > Redirect Page).

I have a similar problem. But have created the button in pay pal already pasted the link. But the redirect does not go to the payment page.

Worst. It worked when I first submitted a button link, changed the link now it only goes to a generic page.

You need to look at the actual code for the Paypal payment button and pull the URL portion of it out. It may need to be modified in order to include any variables that Paypal is sending with the button. If you post the code for the button itself, I will look at it and try to get a URL from it that will work for you.

I used the e-mail option in pay pal to remove the unwanted code, and after your reply tried to paste the link from the pay pal payment page directly out of the address bar. I am going to try on thing that I did the first time and place the code in a table. I am using a work around at present and changed the redirect page to a temp page with the button.

Button url: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=H4CUW2A9DAY36

What happens when you configure the redirect URL (Login > Edit > Redirect Page) to the URL above? It seems to work when I plug it directly into an internet browser, so it should work with the redirect. If it isn't working, what is the error message?

Worked for me in IE and Firefox, I am having someone else test it... which is where the original error message began. Thanks for your help. Premium is $29.99 is that correct?
