Using PayPal for On-line Payments

PayPal® is a popular and secure online financial service used by a wide variety of merchants, organizations and individuals. Detailed information about PayPal may be reviewed at its home page. The page upon which the PayPal button(s) is/are located has either the item or service being purchased and its price/cost or a drop down menu from which a single item can be selected. That is, if there is no drop down menu of choices, only the listed item can be purchased during the transaction.

1 - There are four PayPal buttons: "Buy Now", "Donate", "Pay Dues", and "Add to Cart". The first three are similar, and each brings a PayPal form page showing what's being purchased and fields for entering buyer's information and other requested data. The buyer can pay with a credit/debit card or a PayPal account (for experienced buyers). There is an opportunity for previewing the transaction before it is submitted for fulfillment. Upon submittal, the viewer will be redirected to the next page on this site.

The "Add to Cart" is a bit more complicated. It brings up a form listing all the options that are available from the menu of selections, along with the prices/costs associated with each option. The buyer selects the number of items/selection to be purchased with this transaction.

After entering the number of selections, the buyer has a choice of "Continue Shopping" (which returns the buyer to the page with the menu of selections) or of "Checkout" (which takes the buyer to a page which shows a listing of what's being purchased and fields for entering the buyers information and other requested data). Again, upon submittal, the viewer will be redirected to the next page on this site.

2 - After completing the purchase transaction, the buyer will have an opportunity to print/save a copy of the transaction for his/her records. PayPal will send the transaction to the provider (in this case, the YNGHA.

3 - The buyer has the option of cancelling the purchase at any time. This is done by simply clicking the "Update/Remove" link on the PayPal page and then closing the page.
