I would like to add a disclaimer page that buyers can read prior to placing their order. I use PayPal and have "Buy It Now" links.

What I would like to do is that when people click the "Buy Now" now, they would first go to a page where they can read the disclaimer prior to making their final purchase decision, then they can proceed from there to the checkout page.

I haven't counted prior to coming here, but I must have at least 45 "Buy It Now" links. I'm a junior website designer and can do simple stuff and can even do this, but I'm looking for a better way. As it stands I can only think of setting up 45 DIFFERENT links going to 45 different disclaimer pages, then from there have them proceed to the original checkout page they were headed towards anyway.

Instead of doing this 45 different times, is there a better/faster way to get this accomplished?

Your help would be most appreciated.

You can use one script (Perl or PHP) such as "cgi-bin/buyitnow.cgi" to which you pass a parameter such as a product ID. That script then uses the product ID to set a destination for a real Buy It Now button.

What?

That seems like a simple solution... had I had a clue what you are talking about. LOL! I do not. I would need a decipherer to even remotely understand what you mean when you say that. I appreciate the help, but that leaves me perplexed as to how to even start doing that. I was hoping to do something short, like you've shown, but without a webdesigner's help.

I would almost need a hold-me-by-the-hand step-by-step example of the steps I would need to even do that.

It sure sounds short and something I'm looking for. However, it looks confusing to me!

Normally I would give a stab at trying to provide more detail but I'm not at liberty to do so in my current circumstances (I'm doing some onsite consulting for a big client). If no one here is able to provide some guidance, you might try looking for someone to do the job for you at eLance or some other contracting site.

After a bit, I figured I could take that info and find someone who understands, to do it for me. I've done projects with the help of others before, so looks like I'll have to do that again.

Thanks for your help, again, Michael. I appreciate it.
