Payment provider progress: PayPal

By Bjarni RĂșnar 2020-03-24, 17:24

It's taken a while, but we've finally made progress integrating a payment provider to replace Dalpay. After a false start (we started integrating a provider that didn't work out), we ended up going with PayPal.

As of last night, it is again possible to purchase additional Pay-What-You-Want PageKite quota.

While we were unable to accept payments, we have been artificially extending everyone's subscription time; this is now being phased out. The last extensions will be granted two weeks from now, and everyone should be back on a "normal" schedule within the next two months. We're doing this gradually to get a feel for whether the new system is working correctly; expiring everyone all at once and then realizing that our integration was buggy wouldn't be much fun.


Those of you who are willing to help us kick the tires of the new system right away, will be rewarded for doing so: for the next 3 weeks, anyone who makes a Pay-What-You-Want purchase will be given 50% extra time and bandwidth than they paid for. So please do give it a try, and if it doesn't work - let us know!

Work is still ongoing to implement recurring subscriptions. More soon.

    Glad to see this is getting resolved, and your graciousness to give us free usage all this time is an impressive gesture. My genuine thanks!

    I just tried the new pay-as-you-go system, and it seems to have worked fine. I also see the 50% bonus applied. Thanks again!
