[pre-ann] New BitUSD store, looking for feedback
« on: January 03, 2015, 07:20:36 PM »

Cryptofresh.com is a BitShares-exclusive store

This is a call for testers and general feedback.
The official announcement will be next week.

There are currently two items listed:
  • BitShares Desktop Wallpaper - for testing, buy the small one for $0.05
  • BitShares 101 PDF - $0.99
It's the first fully automated BitUSD payment system--try it out!

Cryptofresh is part of our media.bitscape delegate bid.
Your vote supports our further efforts.

In addition to a great proposal, you are setting a good example of how to win a delegate slot.

Way to get in their and proactively show what you can do.

Mmmm, that was pretty damn cool. I'd been meaning to buy the book, and you just made it unbelievably easy.

I liked how I sent the money and then BAM it started downloading. :)

Nice job.

This made it super easy and convenient to buy the BitShares 101 book. Just click the "Pay with BitShares client" button, confirm the order in BitShares client, and boom, DRM-free PDF of the book downloaded to my computer. No need to sign up for a new account, no need to give up credit card numbers or my real identity. I love it.

The only improvement I could think of (for digital downloads) is to keep track of the BTS account that paid for the content so that the purchaser could login (using BitShares Login) if they choose to and redownload the digital file without having to repay (in case they lost the file and didn't create a backup).

I downloaded the ebook earlier today, but I just tried downloading the $0.05 picture to show a friend how it works, and it didn't go through. I have a feeling it wasn't the site's fault, but the client's fault. Here is the error log:

EDIT: This was actually my fault... I sent 0.05 BTS instead of 0.05 USD. I guess the client has a separate problem of looking up transactions, however.

How does the system handle overpayments or mistaken payments?

Thank you all for the positive feedback!!

The only improvement I could think of (for digital downloads) is to keep track of the BTS account that paid for the content so that the purchaser could login (using BitShares Login) if they choose to and redownload the digital file without having to repay (in case they lost the file and didn't create a backup).

Thanks arhag, this is definitely something we would like to implement. And it would be yet another chance to show off a killer Bitshares feature.

Is there currently or planned a payment URI for QR codes / mobile wallets?

This store is compatible with mobile wallets. QR codes are not hard to implement, but low priority because there's no application for them at the moment.

This was actually my fault... I sent 0.05 BTS instead of 0.05 USD. I guess the client has a separate problem of looking up transactions, however.

How does the system handle overpayments or mistaken payments?

Great question! It ignores them. In the future, invalid payments will be included in a report that allows the store manager to easily revert them (perhaps after a tx or ~1% fee).

This. Build it and then request a delegate to continue to support the effort. Great job!
