How to fix empty spacing around payment button?

This usually happens in Wordpress. The Wordpress text editor can cause conflicts with the pay button code by adding <br>, which is "line break" in HTML, between the hidden lines of the form, thus adding invisible empty lines.

You can get rid of that with a simple Wordpress plugin, Don't muck my markup. Install, activate it and then you should see this box on the right of the edit page of your posts :

Dont-muck-markup

Just tick the case in the post you want to stick the pay button in and the problem should be solved.

If the same problem occurs with other CMS please check that the text editor does not add <br> tag automatically in the HTML code of your post.
