E-junkie Guide

Tips and tools for beginners and experts alike.

  • E-junkie Help
  • Using E-junkie's built-in integration methods (Aweber, PDF Stamping, sending order data to multiple emails or URLs)

For your convenience, E-junkie provides a built-in integration method you can use to interface with your Aweber account and do other things like stamping your PDF downloads and sending Sale Notification emails to other email addresses. You can also specify a passthru URL where we should POST all the order data in addition to applying any of these built-in methods.

If you only need us to POST the order data to an external script, you can disregard this page and just use our standard Integration method.

PDF Stamping
We can stamp the buyer's name, email and their unique Transaction ID on the top-left of each page of your PDF that we provide to them as a download, and optionally add a User (read-only) password. See this help page for instructions and more information.
Aweber
You can have new buyers automatically submitted to Aweber email list server for subscription to a mailing list you maintain there:
  1. In your Aweber account:
    1. Click on List Settings tab;
    2. Click on Parsers;
    3. Checkmark the box for E-junkie Parser.
  2. Choose one of the following:
    • If you want all buyers subscribed to the same Aweber list, go to the Seller Admin > Edit Preferences > Common Notification URL field;
    • If you only want buyers of some products subscribed, or want buyers subscribed to different lists according to the item(s) ordered, then while adding/editing each relevant product, check Custom/Third-Party Integration to reveal the Product Notification URL field.
  3. In the relevant URL field, please enter (all on one long line):
    https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/o_plug.php?
    &aweber=YOURLISTID@aweber.com
    • YOURLISTID should reference the numeric ID (not the list name) of the Aweber mailing list you want new buyers subscribed to (e.g., &aweber=awlist12345@aweber.com);
    • If you already have https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/o_plug.php? you do not need to repeat it, just add the &aweber= parameter to it.
  4. Click Submit to apply changes.

NOTE: Newly subscribed buyers will receive an opt-in email from Aweber, with a link they must click to confirm their wish to subscribe. For checkout methods that support an opt-in/-out preference, the buyer must opt-in for their email to be submitted to Aweber (PayPal Payments Standard does not have an opt-in/-out, so those buyers will always be opted-in automatically). Also bear in mind this is a legacy integration which has become somewhat unreliable, so it's only suitable for marketing/outreach email lists rather than enrolling paid subscribers.

Multiple Emails
All notification emails from E-junkie are sent to the same email address you use to log into your E-junkie Seller Admin (you can change this in Seller Admin > Edit Profile).  If you wish to have an extra copy of order details sent to an additional email address (such as to a drop shipper or fulfillment house, or to a clerk at your own business):
  1. Choose one of the following:
    • If you want the extra notification to be sent for every order, go to the Seller Admin > Edit Preferences > Common Notification URL field;
    • If you only want the extra notification sent for certain products, or want extra notifications sent to different emails according to the item(s) ordered, then while adding/editing each relevant product, check Custom/Third-Party Integration to reveal the Product Notification URL field.
  2. In the relevant URL field, please enter (all on one long line):
    https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/o_plug.php?
    &m_emails=first@email.address,second@email.address,third@email.address,fourth@email.address,fifth@email.address
    • Our script will send the E-junkie notification email to all your specified emails, up to 5;
    • If you already have https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/o_plug.php? you do not need to repeat it, just add the &m_emails= parameter to it.
  3. Click Submit to apply changes.
Passthru
This method is not necessary if you only want us to POST the order data to a script URL, as you can just use our standard Integration method to have us POST the order data directly to your script's URL; however, if you want to use any of our built-in integration methods explained above and also have us POST the order data to your URL, or if you want us to POST the order data to multiple different URLs simultaneously:
  1. Choose one of the following:
    • If you want the extra notification to be sent for every order, go to the Seller Admin > Edit Preferences > Common Notification URL field;
    • If you only want the extra notification sent for certain products, or want extra notifications sent to different emails according to the item(s) ordered, then while adding/editing each relevant product, check Custom/Third-Party Integration to reveal the Product Notification URL field.
  2. In the relevant URL field, please enter (all on one long line):
    https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/o_plug.php?
    &postto=http://www.example.com/script.ext
    • If the URL in your &postto= parameter has any &name=value query parameters of its own, you must replace any & in that URL with %26 -- e.g., &name=value becomes %26name=value;
    • If you need to POST order data to multiple URLs, you can use multiple &postto[]= parameters to specify each one, e.g.:
      &postto[1]=http://www.example.com/script.ext?name=value%26this=that
      &postto[2]=http://www.otherexample.com/otherscript.ext
    • If you already have https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/o_plug.php? you do not need to repeat it, just add the &postto= parameter(s) to it.
  3. Click Submit to apply changes.
Combining Integrations
You can make our built-in integration method do multiple things by combining any/all of the &name=value parameters described above after our https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/o_plug.php? URL in your Common Notification URL or Product Notification URL field, like so (all on one long line):
https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/o_plug.php?
&aweber=YOURLISTID@aweber.com
&ej_stamp_pdf=true&pdf_allow_copy=y&pdf_allow_print=y
&m_emails=first@email.address,second@email.address
&postto=http://www.example.com/script.ext?name=value%26this=that

NOTE: The full URL you enter cannot be longer than 255 characters; if you're using &m_emails= and run afoul of this limit, consider using just one email address with that parameter and have that address auto-forward to other email addresses as needed.
