So I'm trying to follow these instructions to configure Micro Payments. I'm getting this error message and haven't been able to find a solution.

You haven't created any settings for making small purchases (less than $4.00 USD) that don't require shipping.

How do I configure paypal to resolve this error message before I can switch my account to micropayments?

  1. Step 1 register here.
  2. Step 2 verify that you are a Business or Premier account.
  3. Step 3 Go to Paypal labs click signup.
    • Note that the Paypal labs site seems to not work properly in many browsers. For example, on OS X it seems to only work in Firefox, not in Chrome or Safari.
  4. Step 4 Wait 2 days and check status if you'd like on the signup page.

The Paypal labs link seem to be down for good. Any ideas how the registration for Micro payments should be down nowadays? – Mikael Koskinen Aug 12 '13 at 8:27
