The new buy button :)

We know it’s been a long time coming, but the customizable drop in “buy” button is finally here. You can easily build Dwolla buttons (for free) that let people pay you any amount, and that you can place on any website.

For example, I love coffee. If you’d like to buy me some coffee, you can do that by clicking the button below:

Buy me a coffee

And if you’d like to buy Ben a new T-shirt! You can do that by clicking the button below:

Buy Me A Really Nice T-Shirt

You can imagine the variations here. If you’re raising money for charity, dropping payment buttons onto eCommerce stores, or just collecting tips on your blog, it’s cake.

To build your own button, just watch this video on how to do it:

If you have a Dwolla account just hit this page and start building buttons.

Once created, you’ll get two little snippets of code to drop into your page.

  • 1 is the button. You just paste this in wherever you want it to show up.
  • 1 is some javascript. You just drop it into your footer before the tag.

Done deal :)

If you’re a bit of a hacker and want the code we used to do this. Just check out Michael’s blog in the dev section.
