This week we are unveiling THREE new plugins available to Pro and Campus users!  These will seriously increase the functionality and versatility of Edublogs.

To start off with, we have …

… a PayPal plugin which makes it easy for teachers and educators to accept payments and donations!

Imagine being able to allow parents or students the ability to pay for field trips, club dues, or course materials right in your blog.  Or maybe you would like to offer a secure means of accepting donations.

Once activated, you will be able to place a new PayPal widget in any sidebar in your blog.  Here are a couple of examples:

All that is needed is a PayPal account to begin accepting donations or payments!

WPPayPalSettings

After activating the the plugin, you will find the options under Settings > WP PayPal Payments in your blog’s dashboard.

Enter your currency (from seven different currencies!), payment information, and choice of donation or payment.

PayPalWidgetNext, click on Appearance > Widgets and make sure to drag and drop the WP PayPal Payment widget into the sidebar of your choice.

PayPal will notify you by email of any payments or donations received.

For help on activating new plugins, you can view our help post here.

We hope that you enjoy the ease of accepting payments with this great plugin and maybe even that it will help you bring in a bit more donations too.

Happy blogging!
