Does Selz integrate with MyEmma campaigns? Currently having problems inserting PayPal links, so redirecting buyers to my site and then to PayPal - want to eliminate all those extra steps.

Hi, Mary!  Emma doesn’t currently integrate with Selz, but we’re always on the look out for other platforms to connect with.  I’ll pass along the idea to our integrations team.  Thanks for bringing it up!

Hey Mary! I’m stepping in for Ben here. I looped in our Integrations Team, who said that apps like Selz with simple export/import integrations can often plug additional services into their app with relatively modest code changes. Could you suggest Emma as a future integration to your friends at Selz? That may be the more expedient solution, since we're not likely to build this integration ourselves.

Hello again! I want to follow up because I think the crux of your issue is actually that those PayPal links aren't working because the URLs expire when the sessions expire.

Instead, you can create a donation button for your website and grab the URL for that button. Here's how:

1. Log into your PayPal account, and click the Merchant Services tab.



2. Click the blue link that reads Create payment buttons for your website.

3. On the next page, click the blue button that reads Create a button.



4. Choose your button type, and enter the necessary information. Click to create the button, and you’ll see that there’s an Email tab. That tab generates a URL you can share in your mailings to contacts, and this URL won’t change.



I hope this helps you get what you need, Mary! Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Katie,

I use the paypal buttons for my website, but the buttons do not show up correctly in my campaigns, so I am redirecting them back to my site instead.  So next time I will look at your suggestion under the email tab.  thanks so much

How about snipping the donate button, creating an image of it and then linking the image to the PayPal URL. I know going around the world to get next door, but...better than nothing :-)

Sorry to hear it! We aren't well-versed in PayPal, so you may want to reach out to PayPal's support to learn where to go from step #4 above. Fingers crossed for you. :)
