New Stores

All new stores setup post 9.12 with Express Checkout enabled will automatically get the new Smart Buttons.

Existing Stores
  1. Default Button Template - If you currently use Express Checkout and you don't have the PayPal Button template customized (most Miva Stores) when you install the 9.12 update, it will automatically update the template code to use the new Smart Buttons.
  2. Button Code Customized - If you have the PayPal button template customized, the update will not change any of the button code. To use the Smart buttons you will either need to manually copy and paste the code below in your button template on each page it is being used or revert the template back to point and click mode and hit update which will change the template to the new default code.

Miva Admin Controls

Miva gives you point and click control over the look and feel of the Smart Buttons.
