Paypal button

I have just volunteered to help a good friend build a Habitat for Humanity house here in Mississippi. Not only are we building it, but we're raising the funds as well.

That being said, I'd like to put a Paypal donation button on my blog in hopes that my 15 readers will kindly donate. How easy/difficult is it to set something like that up? I'm sure cutting and pasting the HTML code for the button is easy, but not sure of the specifics of setting up the Paypal account. Now that I've typed all this, I guess I could check the Paypal site. D'oh! If anyone has any experience with this, though, your thoughts would be appreciated.

Assuming that you've already gone to PayPal and set up an account, my best advice for the button is to find a blog that already has one, click View->Source at the top of your browser, and get the html. Just remember to replace their pathway with your specific pathway or they'll be sending money to them!

Also, I've noticed that alot of people have gone with Amazon, rather than Paypal, lately. Don't know why.

UPDATE: I just tried to see if my advice would work. The script seems kinda complicated, what with specific information required. Some of it's obvious (blog title), but some of it's pretty cryptic. Y'might want to email Susie, or someone else who has a button, and ask how they did it (assuming that didn't tell ya).
