I set up my yola site. Linked thru my paypal premier account. I know that the cart/view cart selections work. My questions are 1) Do I have to have a credit/debit card (I already have my bank account linked) and 2) how do I receive the order, where does it go, how do I know I have an order? Is there a link on the help page that I am not finding that will help explain this.

If your banking info has been approved and linked you should be ok....What I did for my first time was set up a fake item on my site for $1.00 and then purchased it with my credit card as a test run....You should get an E mail to notify you.

Hi Elizabeth,

This link may help you:

It's Paypal's Guide (5.8mb PDF) and has all the info on how to use their service and make sure you understand the system properly.

When someone buys something from your online store Paypal will email you with a purchase notification. The email will be sent to the email address that is linked to your Paypal account. You can then see what it is that they have bought and that they have paid.

I hope that helps!
