To get to this settings panel click "Config"
at the JonDo main window, select the entry "Payment"
from the list to the left and then open the tab "Advanced

Anonymous payment connections
"Only if direct connection is not possible" makes JonDo transfer
information about your current account balance and account creation data
through the currently active JonDonym service if the respective payment
instance is not available through a direct connection. This could for
example be the case if your ISP blocks access to the payment instance.
"Always (deny non-anonymous connection)" will result in payment
instances being contacted only through JonDonym services. By
setting this, you may under circumstances no longer be able to create new
accounts or receive updated information about your account
balance. Affiliate inforamtion will not be send in this case.
"Never (allow direct connection only)"
This setting blocks any requests of payment
data through the anonymous connection. It can make sense if you want
to cut cost. For payment data transmitted through premium JonDonym
services will for compelling technical reasons be accounted for just like
any other user data.
Automatically update account balance
If activated, JonDo will try to update your account balance at fixed

current account balance. Your account will still be maintained correctly by
the payment instance though.
Warn when closing JAP/JonDo while not all accounts are backed up
To prevent data loss, you may order JonDo to warn you if one or more of
your accounts have not been backed up and JonDo is closing.
Connect timeout (s)
Sets the timeout for connections to the payment instance. If you experience
problems creating or paying accounts, increasing the timeout may solve
Show error messages from accounting instance (deactivate for debugging
If activated, error messages from the payment instance of the relevant
service will be shown. It is recommended to do so. This setting is only
available in the beta version.
