As an experienced eBay seller you know that it’s important to give your account every advantage when it comes to increasing your sales.
Today we’ll look at how you can boost your eBay sales in a matter of minutes simply by connecting your Aweber account with your paypal account.
Every seller we have shared this method with has reported back an increase in sales (once they finally got round to doing it, that is!) So it’s well worth a few minutes of your time to do this.
Let’s get started!
Firstly, if you haven’t already, go get your Aweber account here. Don’t worry – they offer a free trial if you are just starting out. Once you have done that, come back to this page and follow the instructions below:
Step by Step Instructions
In your account, click the “My Apps” link in the upper right corner of the page.
Here, find the PayPal app and click and click on it.
On the next page you will want to click the “Enable” button.
You may be asked to log in to PayPal at this point. After you’re logged into PayPal, simply click the “Grant Permission” button.
Back on the “My Apps” page, under “Connected Apps”, you should now see the PayPal app with a list of instructions under “Enable PayPal Notifications.” From the 3rd step there, copy the “Notification URL.”
With that copied, go to the Instant Payment Notification page in your PayPal account (you may be asked to log into PayPal at this point), then find the “Choose IPN Settings” button on this page and click it.
On the new page, paste the URL you copied into the Notification URL area, make sure that you click the radio button next to “Receive IPN messages (Enabled)”, then click “Save.”
Back on the “My Apps” page, you can now choose the list to which you would like customers added under the “Choose Your List” heading.
With that done, the PayPal app will start adding subscribers to the list you’ve chosen. If that’s all you want, you’re now done. If you want to add subscribers to different lists based on the products they buy, keep reading.
Immediately below the dropdown menu where you chose which list customers would join, check the box labeled “Add people to different lists based on the product they buy.
Now, simply choose a product from the drop down menu on the left and select the list to which you’d like those customers to be added from the right. When you’ve set this up, click the blue Add button on the right to enable the rule.
