That's great! Thank you for letting us know you were able to add your PayPal button. Which instructions helped you do this? We'd love to have those instructions on this thread as well.
Our non-profit organization relies on our ability to collect membership dues through CC email and PayPal.
It has been over a year since you acknowledged that PayPal needs to be added to the 3rd generation editor.
When can we expect it back. We are losing members and going broke.

Thank you for reaching out to the Community. I do apologize this is not an available feature within our 3rd Generation Editor. As a work around in the meantime, you can generate a link and add it to your email by following these steps.
Unfortunately, we do not have an estimated release date at this time. I will certainly track your feedback and send it to our developers. Please let us know if there is anything else that we can assist you with. Thank you and enjoy your weekend.
Yes, I have to agree that seems like a huge functionality drop...I can add a Paypal button to every other application I use. Seems like a short-sighted move.
Looking forward to the functionality being restored and improved.
I'm adding your account to the ongoing feature request as well. I apologize for any inconveniences caused by the system currently lacking this functionality.
The link you provided only works if you created a simple PayPal button, not one where the button has a dropdown with purchasing options or a text field to collect additional information. With sophisticated buttons, you do not get an email tab (when you view the code for your button in PayPal) that has a URL you can put into a link in a Constant Contact email. Since 2 out of 4 of my PayPal buttons have a dropdown or a textfield, this doesn't cut it. I had to create a free website with classic Google Sites (not new Google Sites which also has a gutted editor) to use my PayPal buttons and put the link to that website in my CC email.
Thank you for reaching out to us. I apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused you. We do very much appreciate the feedback on the steps that you have taken in regards to inserting your PayPal button into the email. At this time, the feature of adding the PayPal button into our new Third-Generation editor is still under review. I'd be more than happy to submit your feedback to the correct department. In the meantime, please let us know if there is anything else we can assist with. Have a great day!
I had a mobile template custom created by you and have been inserting my news stories. Instead of just a "Please donate" button that takes people to our website I want to insert our Paypal button. I have already linked our account to Constant Contact. The campaign I'm working on is called Nurture Email 3 March 2017.
Hello @CamiL2. Thanks for your question. The editor you are using does not have a feature where you can insert a Paypal button. However, you can create an image of your Paypal button and have the image be linkable to your Paypal page. This way, your readers won't have to go to your website first to make a donation. I will track your request and send it over to our Product team.
