The template works with both the Microsoft Store edition and the desktop edition of the app. Make sure you have installed one of them.
How to use:
In this sample, we look at how to use a custom image to replace the default PayPal payment button image.
This sample is based on the Freelance Writer Invoice format (c3012).
Here we look at how to do the customization.
- Backup your template.
- Open the template in Excel.
- Switch to design mode by clicking the "Design Mode" button on the ribbon tab.
- Click the "Add or Update PayPal Button" command on the ribbon.
- On the "PayPal Payments" dialog box, fill in your PayPal account email address.
- Set any other options as needed.
- Click the "Add or Update PayPal Button" command near the bottom of the dialog box. This adds the default button to the Excel worksheet, with the standard button image provided by PayPal. Visit PayPal Logo Center to find out more.
- Right-click on the image and choose "Change Picture" from the shortcut menu. The "Insert Pictures" dialog box appears.
- Click the "Browse" link in the "From a file" section or search for an online image. In this example, for the purpose of demonstration, we just use another standard image provided by PayPal.
- Note that when the picture is selected, Excel shows a "Picture Tools / Format" ribbon tab, where you can find tools like "Remove Background", "Corrections" (adjustment tools for sharpen, soften, brightness, and contrast), and color tools like "Color Saturation", "Color Tone", and "Recolor". By using these tools, you can easily change the appearance of the image.
- Exit design mode.
- Save the template.
Note that the PayPal hyperlink assigned to the button on the Excel spreadsheet is just a template. It will be replaced with the real payment link on a PDF invoice.
