This might help you:

First thing you need to do is have a PayPal account. If you do not, then create one. Next, you need to login to your PayPal account. You can do so by going to (http://www.paypal.com/login).

Once you are logged in, click on the Create your button now link located here: Paypal Donate Buttons


Now let’s create a Donate Button.

Once you are done filling out, click on Create Button. Then, you will be prompted to 2 sets of codes: Website or Email. Choose Email and copy the link.

Then simply use BBCode to allow an image to direct to that link (fill this in):
[url="EMAILLINK"][img]DONATEBUTTONIMAGE[/img][/url]


Images to use:

Now, I&#39;m trying to do the same thing but I just can&#39;t make sense of that guide, I can see where to insert the code but do I need to put an image URL in, if so, where and do I need to add speech marks to it? I&#39;m still really lost, could you add a sample for dummies like me please? I&#39;ve managed to get as far as it appearing as a hyperlink taking me to the donate page. Here&#39;s a link to the page, you can see the URL at the bottom. http://www.minecraft...try14456824</p>

In your case, the button would be:
[url="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=MCUZUN9XN5B9L"][img]https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif[/img][/url]

I think that the problem is that the color tags can interfere with the BBCode and so messes it up. Trying copying it and pasting using Ctrl + Shift + V which pastes it in default font and color. After that, use the image function to make it appear.
