Hi all,

I know that best practice integration of PayPal logos will increase conversion rate so I want to show a PP logo on all pages, in the footer. How can I do that? I have the logos, I just need to know how I can add the logo to the footer.

Also, When taking PP payments the fees are 3.4% +0.35 euros which comes down to a 20% take rate on a bloggee of 2.50 euro. LOL. You can sign up for Micro payments of 5% + 0.05 euro but then I pay too much on images of 10 euro and above.

So, can I use two paypal accounts on the site, one for under 10 euro, and one for above? If I cant, which fees have you chosen to go with?

Thanks,


Poncke v2

The logo used is the old PayPal logo by the way.

I want to use this instead

<!-- PayPal Logo --><table border="0" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" align="center"><tr><td align="center"></td></tr><tr><td align="center"><a href="https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/paypal-popup" title="How PayPal Works" onclick="javascript:window.open('https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/paypal-popup','WIPaypal','toolbar=no, location=no, directories=no, status=no, menubar=no, scrollbars=yes, resizable=yes, width=1060, height=700'); return false;"><img src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/webstatic/mktg/logo/AM_SbyPP_mc_vs_dc_ae.jpg" border="0" alt="PayPal Acceptance Mark">[/url]</td></tr></table><!-- PayPal Logo -->

What is the name of the PHP file that holds the PayPal logo on the payment page?

When I started my microstock business end of 2009 I wanted a second paypal account just for that to make bookkeeping/tax filing easier. No, I couldn't. Paypal refused to open a second account with my name and linked to the same bank account.

If they changed their policy I'd be interested to know, too.

To add things to the footer, you use the Widgets under Appearance on the left side. Once you are in widgets, to the right you will see Footer 1/3, Footer 2/3 and Footer 3/3. Those represent three different columns in the footer section. You can drag the Text widget into there and code your image in HTML. I use a plugin called Enhanced Text because it allows you to use HTML, CSS, etc.

I managed to get the logo on the page by entering the code into the footer.php. LOL

Looks fine for me. Now all I need to do is change the logo on the payment page.

Did you edit the footer.php on your main theme or child theme?  Keep in mind on the main theme it will get overwritten with upgrades.  It's probably best to add it in a widget.

Thanks for the heads up, it was in the main theme. I will just copy the php file to my harddrive and copy it back after an update. I need to do so much work on the site to make it look good, so i need to rework the footer anyway.

Brilliant, thanks. Thats the old logo. PayPal has renewed their logos a while back. So I am going to implement the new logo. Looks better  :)

Nope.  Hasn't changed.  I tried it.

Thank you for confirming. So one way out could be using wife's/husband's/partner's paypal account. Would that be OK with Paypal (if they knew)?

Just be aware when you are going to use two account on one business, that accounts both need to have the proper business documents to show they belong to the same business.

Also, dont use personal accounts to take business payments. They dont allow that.

All this sounds like to many hoops to jump through in order to save a few pennies. Guess we better focus on getting sales  ;D.

Can one bank account be used on two different PayPal accounts?

    You can add a bank account to one PayPal account at a time. However, if approved, you may be able to add the bank to a second PayPal account. You will be informed when linking the bank to the second PayPal account if you have been approved.

That's interesting.  When I tried recently to add my bank to a second PayPal account, it was simply denied stating that only one PayPal account can be linked to a bank account.  I didn't notice any kind of approval process.  I must have missed something.

Just tried to do this, it works showing the new PP logo, but it caused a problem with Jetpack for some reason. When I change the link to https://www.paypalobjects.com/webstatic/mktg/logo/AM_mc_vs_dc_ae.jpg Jetpack starts acting up. No idea why. Had to restore the site to fix the issue because restoring the cart.php file didnt fix the problem either.
