I have been working on a site containing a single Paypal 'Buy Now' button, but testing has shown that it takes anywhere from 8-20 seconds to load the Paypal page once the button is clicked. Since there is no indication that the button was successfully clicked, or that the page will eventually redirect, I am afraid customers will leave before the page loads.
With that in mind, I am looking for suggestions to improve this process. My initial thought was to pop-up a 'please wait' jquery dialog until the Paypal page loads, but I'm not quite sure how to implement this. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions for working around this problem?
Thanks in advance!
