Buy Buttons

Converge features a code-generator to help you populate your website with simple buy buttons. The buttons will initiate a transaction through Converge's Hosted Payments Page when clicked.

The options available for Buy Buttons include

  • Customizable buy buttons
  • Simple buy hyperlinks
  • PayPal buttons

We recommend doing this for websites that feature:

  • Single products

  • Donation buttons
