USING HTML


Make your listing stand out with a little code.
When listing your item for sale, you can include some html to help sell it. Below is a list of HTML & code snippets showing how it can be used in the description of your listing.

PAYMENT LINKS

Payment buttons, PayPal account links
You can put a link to your PayPal accounts in your ads.

  • The url must have the "www"
  • The url must have the '/' after the .com
  • The PayPal logo can be included between the <a> & </a> tags, e.g. <a href="http://www.paypal.com/> <img src="http://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/logo/logo3.gif"> </a>

Instructions for PayPal:
We're putting in support for automatic PayPal shopping carts, but if you want to do your own paypal link, you can follow the instructions here.

With the paypal link you can include the information for the buyer to purchase the item immediately. In the paypal code example below, the URL contains

https://www.paypal.com/cart/add=1&business=email%40domain.com
&item_name=the+item&amount=$40&shipping=$6

Everything after the https://www.paypal.com/cart/ are parameters needed by paypal to complete the transaction. We describe how to use the parameters below.

  • basic url = https://www.paypal.com/cart/
  • business: business=email%40domain.com where your paypal email account is "email@domain.com". The @ symbol is replaced by "%40"
  • item_name: item_name=the+item where "the+item" represents the string "the item". The + symbols is used in place of spaces. This string is just an identifier so you know what was bought.
  • amount: amount=$40, this is the price you are selling the item for.
  • shipping: shipping=$6, this is the shipping cost that will be added onto the amount
  • &: each parameter above needs to be separated by the character '&' as done in the example
