PayPal cpp_header_image vs cpp_logo_image vs image_url

These three different options have confused me for a while - it never seems clear when you should use one or the other. CPP stands for Classic Payment Page, but i have seen the cpp_logo_image appearing on the newer payment pages.....

Time for a bit of trial and error based experimentation, all variants are based on paypal add to cart buttons.

Test using:

cpp_header_image
cpp_logo_image
image_url

Result:

cpp_logo_image used on both the basket summary and the check out page; on the check out page the image appears inside the order summary box. It's worth noting that the order the variables are posted in doesn't seem to make a difference: cpp_logo_image was after cpp_header_image in my code.

Test using:

image_url
cpp_header_image

Result:

cpp_header_image used on both the basket summary and the check out page; on the check out page the image appears above everything at the top of the page.

Test using:

image_url

Result:

image_url appears above the basket summary, on the check out page the images appear above everything at the top of the page.

For the sake of completeness, though the results should be predictable in this case:

Test using:

cpp_logo_image
image_url

Result:

cpp_logo_image appears inside the basket summary, and inside the order summary box on the check out page.

The order of precedence is therefore cpp_logo_image > cpp_header_image > image_url

So when do you use them?

cpp_logo_image only works with Buy Now, Add to Cart and Cart Upload; not used with Subscribe, Donate or Buy Gift Certificate.

cpp_header_image has been deprecated for the Buy Now, Add to Cart and Cart Upload; so probably best not to use it for them anymore. Paypal doesn't make it clear if you can use this with Subscribe, Donate or Buy Gift Certificate buttons.

image_url appears to work with everything, but is lowest down the order of precedence.
