With majority credit to the previous answer, you must be

SEQUENCE

My prefix is where you are now at,

We are all on "SE-" i.e. Stack Exchange, as previously noted

I have a Spanish infix.

"-QUE-" is Spanish for "what", explaining the first clue

With a double L to my last two letters,
You might want to sell your homophone.

Add two L's to "-CE" and you get "CELL", a homophone of "sell"

In order for the word to make sense,
Put n.

Not sure of this one, but a mathematical sequence must be defined by index "n" to make any sense. Edit: as per the comments below, this line simply indicates to add "n" to "SE-QUE-CE" to complete the construction of "SE-QUE-N-CE".

    $\begingroup$ Huh ... that means the OP originally included the solution in the title of the question. Very weird indeed. By accident? $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Feb 23 at 10:28

    $\begingroup$ @Randal'Thor Yes, it was really by accident as I was referring to the word while typing out the riddle :P :( $\endgroup$ – UnidentifiedX Feb 23 at 10:54
  • $\begingroup$ @UnidentifiedX oooops :-P actually I wondered what that word was doing in the title, but didn't even consider (because it was there) that it might be the solution! $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Feb 23 at 10:56

Are you

SELL?

My prefix is where you are now at,

SE (i.e. Stack Exchange).

I have a Spanish infix.

EL (a common Spanish word).

With a double L to my suffix,

Your suffix is literally double L.

You might want to sell your homophone.

Including the solution word in the puzzle itself, this could be what we used to call a "lynch mob" clue. Maybe "homophone" is a double pun, based on the homophone "cell" being put together with "phone" as another word.

  • $\begingroup$ Well, that's not what the word is, but you have some clues that is actually part of the answer, but you haven't got there yet :D $\endgroup$ – UnidentifiedX Feb 23 at 0:30
