I am trying to create a custom 'buy now' button on Paypal and need to provide Paypal with the path to the image on the server. I've uploaded the image via control panel using the file manager to the server and placed it in a folder called 'paypal button' under the 'public html' path. However after numerous attempts at trying to navigate to the file via http, i've been unsuccessful and am unsure of how the path would be resolved. I would be grateful for any help you can provide to indicate what the correct path would be.

Kind regards

Hello SteveyC,

Thank you for your question. When you are trying to locate a file within a folder in your public_html folder, the path will be like this:

This is the same path as:

So according to your information, your image path will be similar to: button/buy_now.jpg

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
