Restaurant Menu | ASP/SQL Project

Create a 'Restaurant Menu' application using ASP/SQL Query/Paypal to record Restaurant Menus.

First I will create a PAYPAL account, so I could receive Donation to just help cover some of the expenses (server/hosting fees, Internet fees, etc.).

Here's How:
1. Go to
2. Sign up for an account, if you don't have one yet. Just follow the instructions and you'll have an account up and ready in no time.
3. Once your PayPal account is active, log in.
4. Go to the 'Merchant Tools' section. Look for the 'Accepting Website Payments' section. You will then find a link called 'Donations.' Click on that link.
5. Provide the necessary information to set up your donation button. Just add the optional information to facilitate the donation process (donation name/service, donation ID/number, donation amount, currency, etc.).
6. You can also add more options, such as providing customized 'thank you' pages, cancellation pages, etc.
7. Once you're ready, click on 'Create Button Now'.
8. Copy the HTML code and paste it on your blog template.
9. Encourage your readers to use your donation button (or 'tip jar') to send donations.

What is it?
PayPal Donations lets you collect donations from a button on your website, or even using a link in an email! A low cost way for you to accept credit card and bank account donations, PayPal Donations can be fully integrated with your website in a few easy steps.

Freedom for your donors - donors can choose the amount of their secure donation, or you can set a fixed amount

Paste the HTML code above into your website's HTML code next to the item you wish to sell. Now view your web page and you should see the payment button for buyers to click and pay!
