Five Simple Steps
1. Get a PayLoadz Account
Visit PayLoadz. If you don’t need storage for your originals and will be using your current web site, you can sign up for a free account by clicking on “New Users”. If you need storage for your stock photograph files you can sign up for one of the available pricing schemes.
2. Get a PayPal Account Visit the PayPal homepage at PayPal.com and sign up for an account. The account is free but there is a minor fee for every transaction. You will need to sign up for either a Business or a Premiere Account. A normal personal PayPal account will not work with PayLoadz. If you already have a Personal PayPal Account, you can easily upgrade to a Premiere or Business Account at the PayPal web site.
3. Set up your PayPal IPN Preferences.
The PayLoadz system works in conjunction with the PayPal payment service by “talking” to each other through a web address after payments are made. This is an optional feature found at the PayPal web site, it is free to use, just follow the steps below:
a. Log into your PayLoadz account.
b. Click on the “Account” tab and copy the IPN URL that is specified on that page.
c. Log into your PayPal account.
d. Go to your “Profile” page by clicking on the “Profile” tab.
e. Click on the “Instant Payment Notification” link.
f. Follow along and activate the IPN in the account.
When the instructions ask for a URL, paste your PayLoadz URL that you copied from the “Account” tab when you were in your PayLoadz account (step b).
At this point your IPN is now activated and your PayPal account is configured to use the PayLoadz system.
4. Configure your PayLoadz Profile using your email address that you used when setting up your PayPal account. The email address is the “Username” at the PayPal web site.
5. Finally, Login to PayPal (if you are not logged in at this point). Copy the shopping cart code that PayPal generated for your account. You need to place this code in a webpage on your web site. Once this step is complete, you should have a fully working shopping cart on your web site ready for your customers use.
Note, the above process is also described in the document titled “Selling Digital Goods” on the PayLoadz website.
