UPDATE: March 2018
The PayPal button is not currently a feature in the third-generation editor. However, you can still add a link to your PayPal by creating a hyperlink. Click here to learn more.
Please note. This information is only for the second-generation (now Legacy) editor.
Did you know that you can add PayPal to your campaigns right in your account? All you have to do is connect your Constant Contact account to your PayPal and then it’s just a quick 2-step process to insert the button so that when you send you can start earning money directly to your PayPal account.
Let’s get started with connecting your PayPal to your Account:
Please note that if you don’t follow this step, that you can setup PayPal while inserting the button into the Campaign block itself.
Now, let’s add the button to your Campaign.
And it’s that easy to add a PayPal button to your Campaign.

I easily put a donate PayPal button n my email but it doesn't have the option for monthly donations like the one on our web site does. We are trying to get sustaining donations.
The form on the right is what I'd like to see in the email. Is it possible? I have the code but kept getting a message that parsing was wrong. Easily could have been my error, I have little idea of where to paste it.
Thanks for any help,
Thanks for posting. I'm happy to help you out! Unfortunately, our system doesn't support the forms from PayPal. You can use our Integration, as you have done, but you have to enter in an amount for people to donate. You can add more than 1 donation button with different amounts. But we don't have the monthly option where people can enter their own amount.
Sorry about that. Hope that helps!
I found that if when in PayPal i can generate a button, copy the email code- not the website code and paste it into my newsletter (I made a block first with text, I didn't get the button itself but the form I wanted). Then I get the option for monthly donations. Hope this helps someone else. For a non-profit monthly, aka sustaining donations are the way to go. Sset it and forget it- we hope.
