e-Commerce, Payment systems

The Nice PayPal Button Plugin provides a convenient way to add a PayPal button to any article, to modules, or to almost anywhere text can appear on a page! Whether you want to sell a few items or a lot of items, using the traditional PayPal “Buy Now” button, the PayPal Shopping Cart system, or collect donations, the Nice PayPal Button Plugin makes it easy to turn any Joomla! page into a point of sale. No need to monkey around with complicated ecommerce components, the Nice PayPal Button Plugin's implementation is quick, flexible and easy to use. Simply enter the Nice PayPal Button tag {nicepaypal:button type|price|item name}, e.g. {nicepaypal:buy|7.50|Joomla T-Shirt}, where you want your PayPal button to appear and start selling.

Ease of use

Carefully decipher the documentation to understand the patterns. Then additional instances of the plug-in will be straightforward.


There are several typographical errors in the documentation but you'll be able to figure out the intended words.

I used this to: PayPal Add to Cart buttons for automotive after-market products.

Only for USA

Great support

Posted on 18 September 2014

Excellent and easy to use extension. The support they offer is amazing and they live up to their word.

This plug in was extremely easy to install and set up - literally just a few minutes and it was working. You can use it very simply, or take advantage of the extra features if you need them. Email support was also very responsive to my questions.

This plugin is really great and easy to use. I did need some special CSS but support helped me though it and all is fine.

Thanks for the plugin


Easy to Use - Works Great

Posted on 09 January 2014

I have been using this for a while now and I liked how easy it was to install and set up. I usually figure that if -I- can figure it out, anyone can. It's easy to modify and just insert it amid the article (as code). It works great.


Very Good Experience

Posted on 28 August 2013

I am the Web Master for a small non-profit organization. I have limited Joomla experience. It was reported to me that the PayPal "Donate" button was not working. I know that it had worked at one time; not sure when it stopped. I looked at the code that PayPal had originally sent, but could not figure out what was wrong. Searching the web for solutions, I came across the "Nice PayPal Button" and decided to give it a try, since I did not have a lot of time to devote to this project. I bought the software, downloaded and installed it. Within ten minutes of installation, problem "fixed". Very easy implementation and very happy with results. Thank you!


Great service too

Posted on 08 February 2013

I found this extension very easy to use and install. I did have a problem with layout on the site. However, a few emails and support and all is looking just like I wanted it. I have used a few extensions but you don't always get help. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
