    • In the "Page name:" field, enter a name for your page. This name will appear as a link in your site menu (navigation bar), and in the new page's web address.
    • If this is your first time adding PayPal to your Site Solution site, you'll see two fields below the "Page name:" field. Enter the email address associated with your PayPal account in the first field, then retype the same email address in the second field. If you have previously activated PayPal, you'll see your PayPal email address here.
    • Use the radio buttons to determine whether to add the new page as a main page; click the second button to add as a subpage. (Your page will be added relative to the last page selected in the Manage Pages dialog.)
    • Click the Add Page button to create your new page.
