    IMO: red>green>blue
    Blue is more soothing and could be easily glanced over.
    Green is a go color, but in most split tests I have seen, doesn't outmatch red in the majority of cases.

    Then again, if your current websites color scheme is mainly red, then a red CTA will likely not stand out and will be overshadowed (your color scheme shouldn't be red anyways).

    Split test the colors. That's all I can say. I'm going to go out and say it already, you're an idiot if you don't do this.
    Also test the "buy now" copy, order now, purchase now, take my virginity and my money now, & ETC.
    You should be doing this with everything, -/+ ROI.

    It's going to be harder to test on buy buttons than non-paying action buttons, since you tend to get less clicks since it insinuates more action(depending on certain elements though), unless you rock a good enticing sales page.

    There are a lot of infographs from blogs that specify in website conversion (conversionxl, unbounce, crazyegg, ETC).
    Go to this, https://www.google.com/search?q=kissmetrics+color+infographic and click into google images & look at all the fap material.

    From another perspective... McDonalds - Red... Coke - Red... Doritos Bag - RED... WEndys - Red... Target - Red...

    Red works better because most are trained to go to red to buy...

    Split test are great - I would go red to start and or split test.

    overall - you are looking for the small percentages that make a small but crucial difference so good luck.

    Now that's what everybody believes, red sells because Mc. Donalds, Coke ... uses it! But that is absolutely not true, different colors evoke different feelings!
    In fact you have to color design your whole website not only a buy button to get the right effect!
    Take a look at the following color emotion guide, then you will understand why some brands are using specific colors to sell:

    Why thinking in reverse side?
    Choose your 'Buy Now' button color according to your site color. I have a white themed website and if i place RED 'Buy Now' button it may look odd to the visitors. Choose one which suits your website design/color.

    It'll depend on your product and niche etc, the most basic answer is to test it yourself!
    I've heard people say red works best, others say yellow cored red, some green, just test and see!

    The best color is: dependant.

    The only way to find out the best color (and CTA) is split testing. No other way. What works for one website may (and probably wont) work for another. Play with color, sizes and text.
