Tutorial: How to Add a "How Did You Find This Shop" to Your Paypal Checkout

Ever wondered how your buyers found you and your stuff? Sure you did. And do. So do I!
And I've discovered that there's an optional question you can add to your Paypal checkout that asks your buyers exactly that: How did you find me?

The question is entirely optional and will appear at the end of purchase while your buyer is paying. It's super easy to set up, too!

1. Login to your PayPal account
2. Go to -->My Account -->Profile
3. Selling Preferences --> Custom Payment Pages --> Options --> Merchant Service Options
4. Check "Add a Customer Service Survey" and fill in the blanks with the choices you'd like to offer, i.e. Etsy, Blog, Twitter, Facebook, Friends
5. Save

And voila!

I did this for my business, but no one has completed it last I checked. I need to check it again, thanks for reminding me.

I usually forget to check it, to be honest! But that's because usually I know where my buyers are coming from since they are so few and far between lately!

"Custom Payment Pages" isn't under my Selling Preferences Tab. Did you set up your PayPal through Etsy? Maybe that makes it different?

I'm coming over from Kelly's Lucky You and liked you on Facebook.

Love the jewely!

Megan, do you have a personal paypal account? If you do, you can't set this up. Technically you aren't supposed to be selling with a personal account so I imagine that's why it's disabled.

Thanks for telling me.
