    Yes, this is absolutely possible. In my solution below, the submit button acts as the pay button itself, because after submitting, the user gets redirected to the corresponding Paypal transaction page where he must complete the payment for the subscription or product ordered.

    You can replace the submit button with any image you like, including a "Pay with Paypal" button.

    To replace your submit button with an image:

    1.  Click on the submit button
    2.  Click the 'Button Image' option in the toolbar

    3.  In the textbox that appear (such as in the image above), enter the url for the image that you want to use in place of the submit button.

    Note: You may use Paypal's button generator to generate an image for use with your form. Save that image in your web server then use the url in your form to display it as a button.

    4.  Click OK then save your form


    Take a look at this example form I made, which comes with a neat looking 'Checkout with Paypal' button

    Let me know if you have other questions or concerns. Thanks!

    I have tried this and I just end up with a bit of script that looks like this - "alt="submit"/>  . The link works fine mind you, just the logo doesn't show up.

    If I just put it is as free html as was suggested by one of your support people, it doesn't act as a link.

    What do I do?

    Hello LUAFoundation,

    Upon checking your form, I found that you are using the complete <img> tag with the image source which is not required. You should just use the image url of paypal button.

    Instead of this code:

    <img src="https://www.paypal.com/en_AU/AU/i/btn/btn_xpressCheckout.gif" align="left" style="margin-right:7px;">

    Just use this:


    I have already fixed this in your form.

    Thank you!
