Paypal allows merchants to customize it’s payment pages by adding logos and changing colors. We use this at ImpulseFlyer for our partnership with WSJ Asia.

To do this you pass a “page_style” variable with a value matching the name of your custom style in the standard Website Payments Standard form/button. It says so in the documentation.
However it took a lot of digging and guesswork to finally make it work. Initially I set up our custom ImpulseFlyer style and made it ‘Primary’ as suggested, then when I tried to pass a different ‘WSJ’ style I still got our primary page style.
The fix is simple, leave the non-deletable ‘PayPal’ style as the ‘Primary’ and always set a page_style in your form code. Job done.
Still running UK’s friendliest, Ruby event on Friday 28th June.
