I was WONDERING IF ANYBODY HAS ADDED A PAYPAL lINK TO there Hub? Or if it could be done.
Well, not to get donations. But I bake cookies and sell them,since I have written 2 articles on the hubs. I was thinking maybe someone acctually would want to buy some cookies. It would be convenient for them. Just a thought!
I'm with Darkside - why? PayPal is an online bank not a source of revenue.
you can put a web link to paypal with a description on your profile page also,
if anyone read your hub & he/she want to donate you something via paypal,
he/she will come on your profile page to read more about you & will donate from there.
ROFL! Well, I don't see why someone would want to donate money to you for no good reason, but if anyone would like to, just contact me for my PayPal email
Sorry, but adding a PayPal link to a hub so that readers can donate money to you seems a little tacky.
I guess if there were a decent reason, as in the case the bard mentioned, helping fund an independent album or something like that, but hard to say if every hubber that did that would be truthful. Asking for money just to get money seems shady and well...tacky.
I hear you, and I agree with everything you've said.
I was thinking about doing this, many bloggers do something similar by adding PayPal content right into their blog posts, but the HubPages rules make it pretty clear that your content shouldn't be commercial or promotional. As for donations, using the PayPal e-mail code link on your Profile would make sense, it's something Hub Pages may even offer as a standard feature, but there is no telling for sure.
All it needs is for some scammer to rip people off here at Hubpages and it would put the whole site under a cloud...

I have seen channels at YouTube with Donate buttons displayed and being very short of money I thought I would like to give it a go. Problem is having created a button and saved it at Paypal I cannot find any way of adding it at YouTube. So I tried Googling but just find videos showing you how to do...

Hi,I know normally there cannot be more than 2 links to any one site on one hub.So, my question is, does that also count for links back to hubpages?For example, if I have two links back to myself and say 2 links to other hubbers' hubs, then is that considered 4 links (over the 2 limit) back to the...

Has a middle-class person approached you asking for money recently? (middle class = judging by the type of clothing and not being unkempt) And were you asked for money in an unusual place, like a middle-class shopping center?I’m in Southern California, and people are asking me for money...

My new experiment:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/8289is looking better every day, and in fact I am trying to figure out ways to help as many Huber’s as possible in this path so I decided I'm going to develop my site in a way that gives authors some link juice (and this site will get massive...
