Using E-junkie with PayPal Micropayments

« Return to PayPal Payments Standard Shopping Cart

PayPal offers a special Micropayments transaction fee which is cheaper for small-amount payments than their standard transaction fee. You can now apply for Dynamic Micropayments to be enabled for your PayPal account, which will allow PayPal to automatically determine whether to apply their standard or Micropayments transaction fee, whichever is cheaper depending on each buyer's order total.

That said, if you already have a separate PayPal account set up for their older Static Micropayments, you can have us direct order totals under $12 to that PayPal account for checkout, while order totals over $12 would go to your regular PayPal account. To use that with E-junkie, sign into your E-junkie Dashboard and go to Manage Seller Account > Edit Profile, then do one of the following:

  • If you expect all or most of your order totals to be under $12, for simplicity you may just want to enter the PayPal Email for your Micropayments account in your E-junkie Profile's regular PayPal Email field, so you would receive all your PayPal checkout payments to that account regardless of the order total, and PayPal will apply their Micropayments transaction fee to all payments you receive in that account;
  • If you expect to have order totals both under and over $12, you can have us send the order totals under $12 to your Micropayments account, while totals over $12 would be sent to your regular PayPal account; in your E-junkie Profile, enter the PayPal Email for your regular PayPal account, then click More Payment Options and tick the box to Send order totals under $12 to a separate Micropayments account, which will reveal a place to enter the PayPal Email for your Micropayments account.
