Now you're ready to start adding products to sell, so you can obtain E-junkie Cart buttons to place on your site. If you have already added products in Seller Admin and placed E-junkie Cart buttons on your site, then your existing cart buttons will automatically start offering buyers a card-based checkout option in your E-junkie Cart.

Do I need a dedicated IPN? Do I have to change IPN settings in my PayPal account?
No. Even if you have a dedicated IPN for something else, E-junkie service will not be affected by that as E-junkie's buy now and cart buttons already contain that setting for products being sold through E-junkie. The only time we ask you to use our IPN URL is when you are selling on a site like eBay where you can not use our buttons.
What are eCheck payments? How are eCheck payments handled?
When a buyer pays you via PayPal using her bank account, the payment stays pending in your PayPal account till PayPal has received the funds. When we see such a payment, we inform the buyer that the order will be processed when the payment clears. The regular "thank you" email with download link (if applicable) and codes (if applicable) are sent when PayPal informs us of the cleared payment. If you want to change this behavior and process the echeck orders like normal orders, contact us and we will change that for your account.
What is PayPal IPN?
IPN (Instant Payment Notification) is a system that PayPal uses to send the transaction data to a URL you specify. Based on the data this script can take any action. E-junkie uses it to authenticate the transaction and process it.
What is PayPal email?
When you register for PayPal, you use your email address. You can have multiple PayPal emails associated with it. These emails are the unique identities which PayPal uses to associate payments with an account. Those emails are "PayPal emails" and you can use any of those to accept payments.
