Receive special offers and email from Seller.......

I just purchased an item from an Etsy seller, and on the left of the page (just prior to final 'checkout') there were two drop-down menus:

I’d like to receive special offers and promotional emails from this seller.
How did you find my store? (Optional)

I've never seen this before and I'd love this in my Etsy store during checkout!

Is this a new automatic feature? Any help or informational links would be appreciated to better understand....... Gracias!

Did you purchase through Paypal? Pretty sure you can set it up through there.
I do believe you have to go into PayPal to set this up. I haven't done it yet myself but read this in another thread...just not sure where probably in account set up?

Maybe someone else will know.

Ooh I've never heard of it or seen it either. Interested.
i wrote a blog post a while back on how to add that to your paypal checkout page. hope it helps someone!

Tara, a million thanks! Your blog post provided just what I needed. BTW, this option only works for PayPal business and premier accounts. If you have a personal account, you can upgrade to business or premier from the "overview" tab on your PayPal account page.
From PayPal:

To upgrade your current Personal account to a PayPal Business or Premier account, please follow these steps:

1. Log in to your account at

2. In the Enhance Account section, click the "Upgrade Account" link.

3. Click "Upgrade Now."

4. Choose a Business or Premier account.

5. Click "Continue."
� If you chose to upgrade to a Premier account click "Upgrade Now"

� If you chose to upgrade to a Business account, fill in your business information and click "Submit"

6. You have now upgraded your account.
Sounds like a great idea! How do you get the results? you get notified by PayPal if they opt for promotional emails and/or let you know how they found your shop?
