Dear Aaron, meanwhile my first testupload is available. So I ask you to download it and it would be great to have your feedback.
Call for Help in testing
(This leads to a downloadable file meant for Aaron, Christian or one of the friendly staff of E-Junkie. It costs 0.99 US$ and the author pledges to pay it back via PayPal.
Anyone else, who tests this is supposed to be a sponsor. Thank you in this case.)
Aaron: This shows what's in my cart ie nothing. It does not have a link to your download product. Aaron Poeze 00:45, 9 July 2008 (PDT)
Fridemar: Thank you Aaron, so we will have to concentrate us on the PayButton. fridemar 15:10, 9 July 2008 (PDT)
Aaron: Yes, however we will need to figure out how to let an interested party add specific pages of their choosing to a cart.
What about this BuyButton?
Aaron: I don't know why but this is hanging. I see a spinning loading icon which doesn't stop. It seems to be having trouble getting to paypal. Perhaps something is down. My other internet sites are ok. Yes paypal is down i am unable to access it directly. I will try it again later. Probably i will need something in the cart :) Aaron Poeze 00:45, 9 July 2008 (PDT)
Fridemar: Alternatively we can make temporary Buttons in our Blogs. fridemar 15:10, 9 July 2008 (PDT)
Aaron: Or both Aaron Poeze 00:45, 9 July 2008 (PDT)
Aaron: Success. The payment button is working. Paypal is not down. The payment button forces paypal payment method only. I saw no hidden fees except the exchange rate which was 1 AUD = 0.933421USD. I would need to check my credit card statement to be sure. I got a link to the downloadable page. I looked fine and had the income figures. I got your automated email thanking for the download and involvement. Aaron Poeze 21:28, 9 July 2008 (PDT)
Checking the Paypal payments received
Fridemar: Hello Aaron, this is what I received at Paypal. Note the high transaction costs. I thought E-Junkie had a method to avoid these high transaction costs for MicroPayment (e.g. by cumulating the amounts until a threshold, and then sending them). Besides that, I emailed a letter to the Paypal support, whether they offer a second MicroPayment account.

Aaron: Checking the credit statement has revealed a possible (because the payment is not yet 'processed') $AU1.00 charge connected to the $AU1.07 charge (ie $US0.99 times exchange rate) for a total of $AU2.07. I am not sure of the source of this extra dollar yet. It seems to originate from paypal. It does have a code so I might ask paypal the source if it remains after processing.

Support of community-friendly Ecommerce providers welcome
The Aboutus community is open to the whole Internet. It is not exclusively affiliated to any Ecommerce provider, so these initiatives are meant as friendly invitations, where the addressees decide themselves, whether to appreciate open communication.
RayKings green light for the community initiative
Aaron: RayKing also did this transaction successfully then? Aaron Poeze 11:35, 10 July 2008 (PDT)
What about this additional Motivation to accept the community invitation?
Immediately after the posting at the E-Junkie forum.
One day later Aboutus gets on top of Google (presumably by the stronger community approach)
