View Full Version : PayPal site in new window instead of replacing my site.

Unfortunately, I am only able to receive payments using PayPal, however with this in mind I want to make the best out of it.

Using PayPal's "Buy now Button", the normal way to proceed a payment would be:

1. A - by PayPal predefined - form on my site with a submit button.

2. After submitting, my site is replaced with the PayPal payment site.

3. After the payment process is finished succesfully the PayPal site is replaced with my site.


Is it possible to open a new window with the PayPal site after submitting there predefined form.

<form target="_blank" ............. >

of course, if you are using a return page you'll need to set that to run a script that closes the window and possibly activates a thanks page in the parent.

Depends...You may not want to do that because the user can just close the window and continue. If you're selling a download/program, users can see your 'return' page in the button code and skip payment.
