I am using Dreamweaver eCommerce Template and I want to add BUY button.

Help needed which is the best way to do this?

Can I link Buy Button to PayPal some how?

When I add PayPal generated Button it sits at the bottom of the div .productRow can I alter position.

Thanks

Just remove the 2 lines of code below from your paypal 'buy now' button:

<input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_GB/i/btn/btn_buynow_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!">

<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_GB/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">

and replace with:

<input type="submit" name="button" value="Buy" class="buyButton">

Not sure about other comments rights and wrongs of PayPal and their branding buttons.

Dont worry, pay pal does NOT enforce you to use their branded buy buttons, they just make recomendations.

Some clients/developers like to use the branded buttons because it instills confidence in the buyer, others find the buttons are not suited to their overall design so elect to use their own styling.

It even says in their 'help center' documentation that you can use your own images/styling.

Read PayPal's user agreement.  I don't think you can change their buy now button except as noted below.

However, you can adjust form positioning with CSS

form {margin-top:-45px}

No developer wants those ugly ******* pay-pal buttons on their customers websites and that's why you don't see any on decent websites or decent templates, only on amatuer websites and boy do they look amatuer. I'm sure pay pal doesnt give a shite as long as they are taking a financial cut. pay pal should be paying the developer to even consider including their crap buttons.

Anyhow no-where on the page you linked to says anything about you cannot use your own buttons.

If someone wants to use PayPal as their only payment processor, then they must play by PayPal's rules.   I don't use PayPal Buy it Now buttons.   I use a PCI compliant shopping cart.  And PayPal is one of several payment options available on the cart.  My site's Add to Cart buttons are not generated by PayPal.  So I'm not violating any agreements.

Do you have a link where it says you can't use your own styled buttons to link to the  pay-pal check-out gateway or is this something youre just making up?

I can provide you with plenty of links to websites that use pay-pal as their gateway and not the 'official' buy now buttons, so they all must be violating this agreement you speak of.

And by the way you don't have to use pay-pal to generate any of their buttons.

I had a legal link a while back but I can't put my fingers on it at this moment.  PayPal is simply protecting their brand recognition as well they should.  

If your business uses  PayPal Checkout services, you have more options to customize the buttons.  See link below.   But the logo, fonts, colors and brand name can not be changed.

Customize the PayPal Checkout Button - PayPal Developer

<Seems like pay-pal dont mind what you use as a button so long as you use them:>

Nice try.  But that's just one user talking to another user.  That's not an official endorsement from PayPal.

They are simply recommendations for styling the button to enhance not the paypal brand itself BUT the impression given to your website visitor as being a well-known and respected brand to be trusted.

If you elect not to use any of those recommended styles because all are terrible and would detract from the styling of a well presented website that's perfectly fine.

No one is saying change the color or styling of the actual paypal logo, its just not being used when you elect to create your own button. If someone choses to use one of those recomemded button styles I would advise its best not to change the corporate colors or typeface, thats just being sensible.

Well its one step up from someone who is giving out recomendations that fully admits they dont even use pay pal

Accepting Paypal and using Paypal as your main gateway are 2 different things.

That's correct.  And as I said above, if your only payment processor is PayPal, you should use their official branding.    If you want to use non-regulation buttons,  get a shopping cart.

You dont get it , the buttons are NOT a regulation requirement they are recomendations. Do you really think paypal gives a crap what your buttons look like as oppossed to how much money they take.

Yes of course paypal would like you to use their official buttons as publicity for themselves and quite possibly to do the job of ensuring your end user has financial security assurance given the brand is probably the worlds most recognised payment gateway, but its not mandatory to use their buttons.
