PrestaShop Tips - Customiize Paypal payment page to use your own logo and image without https

If you are running eCommerce shopping cart or online shop software like PrestaShop and you are using Paypal, but you don't have HTTPs, in that case you will not able to customize Paypal payment page to use your header image or logo.

But I found a very tricky way to do customize Paypal payment to use your own logo or header image. Here is how to do:

[Prepare your logo and get an URL with https]
First, you will have to get your logo or page header image done. Then upload your image to any website with HTTPS (SSL) enabled that you have access. And get the URL of your logo or header image.

If you don't have any website to upload, you create an account at Microsoft Windows Live account, then create a Shared Album at Windows Live Photos, and upload your image there and share your image with public. So you will get an URL of your image.

Note: By default, the URL might be non https, but it works with https too.

[At your Paypal Account]
1.From the Account Overview page, click on the Profile sub-tab

2.Click on the Custom Payment Pages link under the Selling Preferences heading.
This will take you to the Custom Payment Page Styles page.

3.From this page, you can Add, Edit, Preview, and Remove page styles,
as well as make any page style your Primary style

[At your PrestaShop]
4 If your image URL is a Shared image from WIndows Live Photos , then the URL might be too long to fit in your Paypal setting page.(It does not allow very long image URL). In that case, you can have it set up at your PrestaShop Paypal module screen.

You can see the sample by going yo paypal payment page at:
