marketpress paypal chain payments application questions

I received this response for my application on x.com:

Thank you for your submission. In reviewing your application, we have several questions regarding the functionality and information provided in your application.
1) If using a chain payment API, who is the primary receiver/merchant of record (MOR)?
2) Who will pay the PayPal transaction fees?
3) I am unable to complete a test payment flow using PayPal. Please provide the test accounts/credentials needed or a sample product that allows me to complete a test transaction. Your Adaptive Payments test URL should point to our sandbox and allow me to complete a PayPal transaction.
4) Do you have a posted refund policy? If you do not provide refunds or they are the responsibility of others, please indicate this on your site.
5) Do you have an Acceptable Use Policy publicly available? If not, you can use PayPal's (https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/marketingweb?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=ua/AcceptableUse_full&locale.x=en_US). However one must be posted.
6) Per PayPal’s branding requirements mentioned in the Developer’s Agreement (https://www.x.com/docs/DOC-1031), please use PayPal’s buttons on your payment page. To create PayPal button, please login to PayPal.com and click the “merchant services” tab.
7) What is your average selling price and estimated monthly volume? We know your business may be new but we require your best guess to complete our review.
8) Do you monitor for content that violates PayPal’s Acceptable Use Policy? If so, how? Thank you, Rigo Rodriguez, PayPal, Inc

I don't understand how to answer many of these questions. I thought marketpress was already approved? please help as taking a percentage of the sale was the reason I purchased Marketpress

    thanks for the quick reply but that isn't actually very helpful. I am also having issues with properly setting up a sandbox store so that paypal can test it out. I setup a store on a test sub blog but I am not sure of what ID to put where and every combo I try gives me one error or another.

    I get:
    There was a problem connecting to PayPal to setup your purchase. Please try again.
    580022 - Invalid request parameter: The email address email is invalid

    or:
    There was a problem connecting to PayPal to setup your purchase. Please try again.
    520009 - Account xxxxxx@siteserve.info is restricted

    I am at my wits end here, please provide clear instructions for every step.

    You need to setup 3 paypal sandbox accounts, 1 buyer, and 2 sellers. Your seller credentials go in super admin -> marketpress.

    The individual blog seller just inputs their sandbox seller account email on their store settings area. (which sounds like is the step you are missing).

    Then checkout using the buyer sandbox credentials.

    Ok that seems to have worked. I responded to all their questions with either the answers the post you linked to offered or with:

    This app will work exactly as all the other marketpress apps which you have already approved do.

    since I had no idea what to put for them.

    I'm still waiting for a final answer.

    to the question:

    What is your average selling price and estimated monthly volume? We know your business may be new but we require your best guess to complete our review.

    I had said between $1 and $1,000,000,000,000 hoping that humor would get me past this one but no luck, they asked again. so I said something along the lines of from $5 to $1000 per item. We'll see what they say and if thats the end of it. I have this page open in a tab and I'll report back and hopefully be able to close this thread.

    I started another thread about that tutu. I suggested they display a view cart button under the add to cart button if something is in it. I also found a thread on altering the widget to only show if there are items in your cart, I think thats an important one to.

    I just wish paypal would let me know what is going on. I have the application page open in a tab with firefox reload every plugin reloading the page every 5 minutes so I never get logged out. I check every couple of hours or so. I also keep this page open in a tab cause I promised to report back and I will close this thread

    FYI I added this:
    $content .= '<a class="mp_link_addcart" href="'.mp_checkout_step_url($checkout_step).'">Shopping Cart</a>';
    to get a shopping cart link under the add to cart button. In marketpress.php create a new line under line 1162 and add that code. It'll give you a button formatted just like the add to cart button and directly under it.
