Talks : Online Payments

We're going to try a new set of events titled "Talks" that take a deeper look at a specific technology or topic. These events will run in the early evening 6 - 7pm, at The Generator on Dix's field.

The first event will focus on the intricacies of taking payments online, the gotchas to look out for in different scenarios and common pitfalls. We'll also look at some of the new alternatives to traditional providers and the ease of integration.

Some of the ares we'll cover:
- Reoccurring payments
- Shopping carts
- international payments
- merchant accounts vs. non-merchant accounts
- GBP vs. foreign currency payments

We'll be open from 5:30 and looking to start at 6. You're also welcome to spend the day, or part of it working from The Generator if that suits.

    Nice talk, thanks. Sorry I had to duck out before the discussion. I've got experience using Recurly and Paypal, so if anyone would like to know more about either of them just let me know!

    Seeing as we're going to be full, if you can't make it tomorrow could you update your attendance so someone else can take the spot. The slides will be up after then event, I'll post a link here and on the website, exeter-web.org

    Looking forward to this, it would be nice to know if anyone else has tried http://www.stripe.com yet now it is available in the UK (currently in beta). Looks promising.

      Yep, I'll be covering the current state of stripe beta. Looks promising indeed, but is very much a beta.

      So we won't be discussing PayPal then. Ideal :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
