    Could you please help.  I have taken your advice on your site with my Paypal button and changed the code at the front as outlined on your support page ie:<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr"method="post" target="_top" > but my Unsubscribe button will not work.  We have a Subscribe Button that now works but I am unsure what to change in the unsubscribe code at the moment my unsubscribe code is:


    <A HREF="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_subscr-find&alias=UXSHGS7UWKCJN">
    <IMG SRC="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_AU/i/btn/btn_unsubscribe_LG.gif" BORDER="0">
    </A>

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would suggest adding a "Subscribe" / 'Unsubscribe' button to your website by getting the email link for your PayPal button, and adding it as a link to the image.

 
You can download the actual buttons from here:
 

Unsubscribe: https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_AU/i/btn/btn_unsubscribe_LG.gif

    Please try using (bold part was added):

    <A HREF="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_subscr-find&alias=NQLDZHZXTSK7S" target="_blank">
    <IMG SRC="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_unsubscribe_LG.gif" BORDER="0">
    </A>

     

    It will make the link open in a new page, as when you use it without it, it will try to open on the HTML app's frame, which will not work.

     

    Let us know if this helps.

    It is totally different, but that is probably because it is the UNSUBSCRIBE button. The code is new. More details about UNSUBSCRIBE would be nice. Thanks for your help

    Hi William,

     

    The code you pasted above looks totally different from the code I get when generating a subscribe button on PayPal. Is it a recent code? I believe it won't work as-is.

     

    From what I see you need to generate the code from PayPal and then add target="_blank" as explained above.

     

    Please let us know in case you need more details.

    Thanks Tali,

    What is an "email link"?  Is that different than the code given me by paypal for the button?

    Also, in the work around it says I can download the button from: Unsubscribe: https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_AU/i/btn/btn_unsubscribe_LG.gif

    I click on the link and it takes me to a page with what appears to be the button. What do I do there. There are no further links, code, word, just black and what looks like a button. New to all this. I appreciate your help!

    Hey Williamg Hughes

    Unfortunately we cannot provide support at the code level for html embedded on our website. The reason being that it is not our product so we cannot be responsible for it.

    Please note that I've tested your code in our HTML tester and nothing happens when you click on the button, meaning that you have something wrong with the code.
    You can try it out for yourself- visit this link, and click Help!.

    I recommend contacting Paypal for further assistance.
    Another option is to use the workaround suggested in the Best Reply above.

    Did that already and it worked. My problem is with the unsubscribe button. is there code to alter for that?

    If your embedded PayPal button does not work, use the following workaround:

     

    1. Replace this first line of the embed code of your PayPal button:
    <form action="https:// www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">


    2. With one of these:
       a. If you want buyers to complete their purchase in a new window, use this line:
    <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_blank">

        b. If you want buyers to complete their purchase in the same window, use this line:
    <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top">

    dont know if this clears anything up, but the code I am currently using for the button that doesn't work is:

    <A HREF="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_subscr-find&alias=NQLDZHZXTSK7S">
    <IMG SRC="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_unsubscribe_LG.gif" BORDER="0">
