Blogger's Buy me a Beer - Paypal donation

This module is heavily inspired by Ankesh Kothari's Buy Me a Beer Wordpress plugin, and since i was thinking of setting up one for my Etienne Teo Blog, i thought i might as well just look for one and add it as a widget on my blog, suprisingly no blogger or Blog hacker had setup a plugin for blogger.com users to input this beautiful "Buy me a beer" plugin.

Acutally this plugin is pretty simple, needs a little tweak on the codes and you are ready to have one plugin available for blogger.com, maybe it was too simple so no one actually bothered, but i need one for myself so i guess the rest is history! Maybe now the blogger.com community can use the updated plugins on their blogger.com and hopefully it can be found much easier on google and other search engine, which i was trying for the past 5 days and i was frustrated why i could only find WP plugins for "Buy me a beer", are WP users the only one using them or was my search keywords all wrong.

Buy me a Beer Plugin for Blogger - Resulted in 564,000 returns
Buy me a beer Plugin - Resulted in 973,000 returns
Buy me a Beer - Resulted in 1,260,000 returns
Blogger Widget buy me a beer -Resulted in 574,000 Returns

None were able to help me find my plugin used for Blogger.com


Even for me to search under keyword "Buy me a Beer" was under constant hits for WP users to use this plugin.

How Blogger's can use "Buy me a Beer" Plugin
Here i will teach you how to have your plugin installed on blogger, firstly i will let you have a look at the simple code you need and 3 steps to install this wonderful plugin to blogger.
(Click to download)

Install it in your blog in 3 simple steps
(Only those in red are to be change and leaving the blue text untouched):

  1. Host your own Beer.gif which i have provided for youbuymeabeerright click on the picture and save it, copy the URL that you have hosted the picture into the code in red.

  2. You will need a Paypal Account and if you don't have one, its time to get an account, its free and require to Register with your full details. After which use the email that you have registered with paypal and input to this red code i placed under number 2, this email is very important since it directs your viewers to the correct place to buy you a beer!

  3. Change the contents and update to your preferred text, this portion can have unlimited text as long as you project the key message to your viewers so that they will buy you a beer!
You have completed your "Buy a beer", thats your code to have it placed in your sidebar either at the top or bottom.Remember this code is universal for both Blogger and wordpress.Link my blog to your fellow bloggers and tell them about "buy me a beer" code available to all bloggers users.

PS:This is an additional code that would work if you place it under your XHTML.
  • "Expand your widget template"
  • Scrolling down where you see <data:post.body/>
  • Place the code below if you want and it will appear below your post.

It’ll be interesting to see if any readers out here will buy me a beer as I’m really thirsty.
Please buy me a beer!

Hah... I made my own 'Buy me a beer?' thing for my blog. It took me a while to figure out just how to do it, as I'm no technical whiz, but I like the results. It goes well with the rest of my blog. But I would have used yours, if it had been out when I was trying to find the code for a Blogger site. Nice of you to create it, and put it out for folks to use.

Gerri says
July 5, 2007 4:05 AM

thanks for the code. I have been looking around for one for blogger for a while now and what do you know? I could not find anything online. I have added you to my technorati faves and will be putting up a post that links to yours.

July 24, 2007 12:59 PM

Hello. My name is Joey. I recently discovered your blog, and I am trying to put the "Buy Me a Beer" donation thing on my blogger blog, but I cannot get it to work right. Every time I do it, and then view the page, its says "Submit Query" and then has the anchor text beside it. I cannot get the pic of the beer and the actual anchor tag in the same page element, as blogger calls it. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? The paypal portion of it works properly. Also, if it is not too much trouble to ask, would you please be so kind as to click on my Google ads? You can check out my blog at http://www.joeybusinessblog.blogspot.com. I know it is not much in comparision to your, but I am only a novice. I only started earlier this month. I have already learned a lot. Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.


Joey says
July 25, 2007 12:51 AM

Hi. It's me, again. Joey. I used the code and stuff that is posted, but the submit query thing is still there. I do not know what I am doing wrong. Do you have to put the html code in one page element and the actual beer.gif pic in another using blogger. Someone please help me out. It looks like a hot mess right now though, so please do not laugh. Also, tell me how I can improve on the overall design and stuff. Thanks.

Thanks for the tip, it worked great. Only had a dollar left in my paypal account so could only buy you half a coffee, but if anyone buys me one I'll pass it on!


Etienne says
September 19, 2007 9:52 AM

Yo dude.
Everytime I try and add that code beneath the post, I get the following error:

We were unable to preview your template
Please correct the error below and submit your template again.
Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure that all XML elements are closed properly.

Any help?

Hey Etienne, thanks for the code. I've successfully installed it in my sidebar but haven't had any luck in the individual post department. I'm seeing the exact same error as Geoffrey above. Any idea how I can fix that?

Thanks a lot for this very useful input! Your site is very informative especially for blog beginners like me. Been searching for a Blogger plug-in and it's a good thing I found you. Following your easy to follow instructions, I now have my own "Buy Me A Coffee" widget at my site. As a toast to you, I've added you to my blog's Hall of Faves.

All the best to you!

Mariz says
May 25, 2008 7:54 PM

Oh, more thing... when the link is directed to PayPal, it still shows Buy Me A Beer, though I've replaced all "beer" words with "coffee" in the codes? I followed everything strictly and don't why beer still appears

Lastly, is there a way to hide my email address as anyone can hold their cursor over the buy me a coffee link and see the email address that it goes to, also when it gets directed to PayPal landing page, is there a way for it to show my name instead of my PayPal email address? It bothers me that I might get tons of spam or phishing emails because my PayPal email add is visible.

Thanks a lot. I would appreciate your help.

Mariz says
May 25, 2008 8:23 PM

Mumbai bomb blast can be considered as one of the most horrible attack. Due to blast even Exchanges like Regards
BSE and NSE are kept closed for one day.
Now post attack we are getting news of resignations of various political leaders and officers. So is that another political move or there inner self is waking up??

What you have to say about it??, Looks like some political move is there!!

Now stock market will be affected by all political moves, though sentiments are not good but on technical charts market is quite bullish for very short term, still sentiments will effect Nifty movement. So all are advised to trade in small quantity and with strict stoploss till the picture is clear.

I tried out the wordpress "buy me a cup of coffee/beer" plugin idea for a while on a few sites of mine. It was a very poor performer in comparison to adsense and I ultimately removed it because I didn't like the "yet one more thing asking for making money" on the page. I got a grand total of 1 donation of $3 out of it. Maybe I didn't have the right kind of traffic for it, but other methods can give much more of an impact.

During elections time stock market act very weird. One has to be very careful while doing trading and investments in Indian stock market .

If you have any doubt please feel free to contact us.


Apart from Elections another major concern for Indian stock market is Inflation. There was a time when we were concerned about rising inflation but now we are conscious about this falling inflation.

So big question is what should day traders and investors do?

Frankly speaking day traders are least concerned about the market they simply follow trend and make maximum out of it. But yes investors should keep there portfolio light till the elections get over.

Please feel free to contact us for any query.

I have Been following this blog for quite some now and I have found this blog to be very useful and informative. This blog is very helpful to its customer's.

Stock market is a volatile market. Where people invest with the intention of making money but many traders and investors end up as a looser. Must be wondering what makes one trader a winner in the stock market and another one as a looser in the market.

In Indian stock market many people have many doubts but they don’t want to clear them by consulting professionals nor they want to raise there questions where other traders and investors can help them out. But now many portals are coming up with QNA sections where investors and traders can exchange there views about stock and stock market. Indeed it’s a great help for everyone who are related to stock market.

What care should one take while investing?

Before making any investment, one must ensure to:

1.obtain written documents explaining the investment
2.read and understand such documents
3.verify the legitimacy of the investment
4.find out the costs and benefits associated with the investment
5.assess the risk-return profile of the investment
6.know the liquidity and safety aspects of the investment
7.ascertain if it is appropriate for your specific goals
8.compare these details with other investment opportunities available
9.examine if it fits in with other investments you are considering or you have already made
10. deal only through an authorised intermediary
11. seek all clarifications about the intermediary and the investment
12. explore the options available to you if something were to go wrong,and then, if satisfied, make the investment.
