LinkBuilder helps you generate PayPal payment URL links.

Need to email customers a PayPal payment link on a regular basis? Do you find manually stringing together complex URL parameters a chore? LinkBuilder is for you!

LinkBuilder is a time-saving utility designed to take the blood, sweat and tears out of generating PayPal payment links, especially for use in emails.

The LinkBuilder utility implements many of the HTML variables from PayPal Website Payments Standard Integration Guide (Buy Now Button section), especially for use within emails where the link cannot be encrypted.

The bitly URL shortening service is also supported from within the app as some email clients can truncate a long URL.

General Features:

LinkBuilder is flexible in that it can be used to quickly generate a simple payment link, and it will also create a more complex one.

Build a quick and simple PayPal payment link with the basic minimum information:

  • Product/Service name.
  • Item Price.
  • Quantity (or allow customer to specify).
  • Currency.

    LinkBuilder also supports more complex PayPal payment links parameters:

  • Apply a shipping cost.
  • Apply a discount (amount or percentage).
  • Apply tax (amount or percentage).
  • Add invoice and item number, or a custom variable.
  • Custom payment page.
  • Custom text on "Continue" button.
  • Custom text on "Note to Merchant" text entry box.
  • Custom header image or logo.

    Other major features:

  • Save URL links for later use or store as a template.
