How do I add a Paypal link in my forum for donations?

After a bunch of searching, I found a lot about Paypal except how do I set it up in my forum for donations. I have seen forums just post a section with an email link and others with an official Paypal icon and direct link. I have a valid Paypal account and set up a special email just for this purpose.

Can anybody tell me the steps to use/post an official Paypal icon/link in my forum? I'm using a 4.2.0 version. The more information you can give me, the better.

Thank you

I use vbdonate from DBtech. Alternatively when logged into your paypal account do: Tools->All Tools->PayPal Buttons and you can make different clickable buttons with different denominations etc...

Thanks, but the Paypal option is only for business owners. I'm not a business and when I do try to upgrade, it asks for my Legal Business Name with a phone number and address.

Do you have a link for your first suggestion?

Go to paypal, register.
Add your email address you are using with paypal within the paypal donations settings, good to go.
