Weekly Update #39

#17

Some basic debit cards (ATM cards?) don’t have a credit card feature tied to it so it can be a little tricky without some kind of bank transfer system. I’m assuming that’s what Alvin is referring to.

#18

+1 for PayPal (I had some bad fraud experiences with credit cards (locked, however no money loss) in the past and, compared, prefer PayPal over CC).

Well if I would have to use CC then I would consider it, but preferable PayPal (and at least I didnt find basic support for PP that hard to implement, but I admit that was quite a few years ago already and things might have changed).

Pretty sure you miss a lot of pledges if you only offer bitcoin (which still is a pain in the *** for most people) and CC which is not that widely used in every country.
Anyway glad that you’re working on the pledge upgrade system! Guess there are quite a few waiting to throw more money at you :slight_smile:

I can’t help but wonder if the stuff ‘killing Keith’s soul’ is caused by all the security protocols PayPal uses. Because I have read quite a bit about stolen bitcoin so it may be worth setting up PayPal as they have a pretty good reputation.

Yes debit cards will be supported as long as they’re from one of the supported payment companies in the list @Lomsor provided such as Visa and Mastercard.

The problem with PayPal is that their documentation and SDK for integration suck. The flipside is that CC support for paypal will be disabled meaning we don’t have to worry about dealing with chargebacks but the initial integration itself takes a lot more time.

This is what turned me away from them and toward Stripe. I don’t have much experience with Stripe yet but I’ve gotta admit, those docs and libs are very dev-friendly! I’m looking forward to building some useful tools on top of their API’s.

#30

I thought I-Novae were also using Stripe?

#31

They are, but there’s a fair bit of demand for Paypal support too.

Is there any News on the paypal pledge option? :slight_smile:
I had just put some money on my paypal account so i could go for the Alpha package, but after clicking on the pledge option, i realized: there is no Paypal button :smiley:
So I found this thread, and i’m curious if there are still plans to implement paypal…

If not, i’ll have to see if i can get a credit card… i even had one once, but never used it, it’s probably not valid anymore…

Btw.: Hello :slight_smile:

Hello :slight_smile:

Yes there are still plans to support PayPal but I suspect I won’t have time to address it until after I finish the UI and a few other things. It’s probably going to be a couple of months before I have the time.
