I generated a PayPal payment button from the PayPal website and dropped the button onto my page and nothing happens when I click the button.  What am I doing wrong?  Where do I begin?

Here is the button.

<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="1234567">
<table>
<tr><td><input type="hidden" name="on0" value="MyService">My Service</td></tr><tr><td><select name="os0">
<option value="Category1">Product 1 $65.00 CAD</option>
<option value="Category2">Product 2 $140.00 CAD</option>
</select> </td></tr>
</table>
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="CAD">
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
</form>

line 11, replace :  name="submit"
by :  name="mysubmit"

in you put your form in an iframe :
line 1, replace :
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
by :
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top">

do you have your paypal form inside an iframe?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

No, I don't.  Not familiar with iframe.

I am trying to make a call to the paypal form inside this js function:

function() {    
    // need call to PayPal here, before myStep1 and myStep2 
    $.when.apply(undefined, myStep1()).done(function () {
    $.ajax({
        url: sURL + "myController/myStep2",
        success: function() {  
                $.msg("Success Message", live:10000
                });
            },
        error: function(){
                $.msg("Error Message", live:10000
                });
            }
        }); 
    });
};

This is the paypal form that I am trying to implement, but the form does not submit when I click the button:

<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
  <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
  <input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="123456789">
  <input type="image"
      src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_paynow_SM.gif"
      border="0" name="submit"
      alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
  <img alt="" border="0"
      src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1"
      height="1">
</form>

but the form does not submit when I click the button:

i just copied your code and accessed the page, i am redirected to paypal results, i mean the page is submitting on click of the image.

can u give more detail?

also, i would recommend using Sandbox first, then later after everything get succeeded, u can move to live paypal. so try creating sandbox hosted button first, then change the url to "https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr" and then test everything..
