    Hey guys I dont know if its the cannabis this morning or what :rolleyes:
    but I cant figure this out for the life of me. When I go to create a paypal button for express checkout
    i used my paypal account with clients items for sale when i got the html I couldnt figure out how to change to
    his email address. Am I missing something? Will I have to use php?

    Do you have a paypal business account?
    Are you copying and pasting the html directly from paypal and the buttons they are giving you?

    Yes and Yes. I am designing a site for a client I want to input there
    email instead of my paypal for payment. I didnt see it in the html and
    paypals documentation sucks. I know it can be done with php but is there a
    faster easier way?

    I would not use PHP.
    Is your client now able to login to their business account and pull the code for you to use.
    I imagine paypal has some kind of encrption key in the code that makes the association to your account through the API, therefore its not that easy to code yourself.

    I would LOVE for someone that's suggested "copying the HTML" to show the OP how to simply copy the HTML and make it work lol.

    PayPal Express isn't the same at Standard Payments and it utilizes PayPal's API. So, for those of you suggest to just use HTML... how's the HTML going to communicate with PayPal's API server... seeing as how it's not a server side language...
