The currency is changing or reshaping rapidly with the passage of time and we need to know to about this. Should we invest or where to buy from the BTC and other coins.
I know a merchant who would like to offer ApplePay, but really does not like the high fees he pays already for Visa and MasterCard.

What does it cost him to offer ApplePay? Is it a percent of the purchase price? That is the way it works for credit cards.

So a friend was bragging to me about his "bitcoin balance" and showed me a screenshot

Before I tell him "that's not bitcoin" i'd like to know what it is.. I don't recognize the symbol

he has 8M of whatever this is, and math says it's valued at $0.01 each - what's the deal?

it doesn't look like a bitcoin wallet either

the screenshot was from 5 November 2017 if it helps trace it by coin value
I'm a Cyber Security major and I met a small business that wants an ecommerce site. I've wanted to learn Magneto, so I'm going to postpone my current projects and I wanted to learn Magneto to build the sites. I make $200 a week and I pay my rent, so I was going to build the site for $300 so I can put it on my resume.


I read the above link and it said a college student or a PHP Developer cannot create a Magneto website.

Is it unrealistic to think I could learn Magneto to create a site for a small business in 2018?

As far as hosting, I was going to recommend a $5 1GB Linode. I manage servers for my current job, so I will apply updates and manage the server for them for free, then when I need to update to a new version of GNU/Linux I will charge them a fee to do so.

I really want to learn Magneto. If this is possible can you link some good sites to learn Magneto?

If not I guess I will check out Wordpress.
I have just "published" my book on IngramSpark. I am the publisher, but use IngramSpark as a print-on-demand service and to distribute the book.

They also offer ebook publishing, but I think I need to make that ebook.

Please give me an idea what options I have? What the effort is for each option? What feature my ebook would gain with various methods?

I just bought a montior stand and I'm trying to figure out exactly what kind of screws I need, and whether both of my monitors use the same screws.

I have an LG 34UM58 monitor, and a Samsung P245OH as well.
I also have a samsung LU28E510DS/ZA, so I need a dual monitor stand that supports both of my large monitors.

I currently have this stand, but it' won't work.

Any idea's what type of screws I would need to mount these monitors?

J have an e-commerce website and I don't use cookies, however, I know that Woo-Commerce does use cookies throughout the checkout process and I'm pretty sure that Google Analytics uses cookies.  Is there a good Privacy Policy Template out there that addresses Cookies even though my site pages don't use them but my Woo-Commerce Checkout does?

I want to place something on my site Privacy Policy but don't know what.

If someone wants to lead team(s) of software engineering in large scale ecommerce companies or social network companies or Software as Service then what all things they should be familiar with especially in the space of software engineering and distributed systems.

What are some of the good books they should have read or blogs they should have internalized that they can help their teams succeed

I know someone who publishes an iPhone app which currently has an input field for the credit card number. But, this means the user must type it in, which is error prone and slow. So, I hope to reconfigure without even any coding changes to the app.

This is the kind of device I need to use...





My question is...

Can one of these be used along with the app, on an iPhone, to get that credit card number into that field, but do so without  requiring any modifications to the app?

I see that some require a merchant account, and those will not work. The app I am describing must run and communicate with the server. It can not use an existing app to transmit the information.

All I need is a way to automate the manual key entry of the credit card #. So, can any of these readers be configured to insert the credit card # into that field?

I suppose, worst case, if the card reader inserted the CC# into a note, so it could be copied and pasted, that might be better.

I know there are many iPhone/Android insertable "credit card swipers," but those only work with PayPal, Square, or whichever brand that hardware is associated with. So, I need a generic one.

Does anyone know of one or more of these gadgets which can be plugged into a smart phone and configured to be an input device by an iPhone or Android app?

Hi Experts

Can anyone recommend an effective WP Plugin that can handle Subscription payments via Stripe and PayPal?
Most Shopping Carts Iv'e seen are too big for my needs.  I have a few products but monthly / annual service subscriptions is my primary focus.  It will need to be simple for the client to use.

Many thanks in advance
I am working with a small group of sales people and we'd like to divide commissions in thirds for each of us. But I see this would mean we'd need some corporate entity to manage this. But that is not the reason for my question on EE.

What systems exist for dividing commissions? I see this as a potentially complex process to manage.

Are there systems that can be licensed or used online to manage this for me?

I use a Mac, so any non-web app would require Mac support.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            With bidding sites such as dealdash.com and tophatter.com advertising savings that customers achieve through their sites, I have to ask this question.  Can people really save money through bidding sites?  The savings portrayed on dealdash.com really sounds too good to be true especially when someone is getting a huge flat screen tv for $100 or a laptop for $30.  When I see testimonies such as these, I immediately become skeptical and full of disbelief.  

            What does everyone else think about bidding sites?  If someone has indeed experienced success or perhaps disappointment through them, please feel free to share.  I would be interested in any review about bidding sites rather it be positive or negative.

              Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I am wondering how I can view a paid off balance of one of my accounts using Credit Karma.

          Thank you

I have a legacy script for a client that I'm trying to get their original authorize.net coding to work with the new acceptJS coding format.

The following code makes a call out to a credit card processing service (authorize.net).  When it returns with validated info, it pops up a dialog box that the person then responds to in order to finalize the processing.

When it makes the call to authorize.net, a token is returned. But because JavaScript is running in asyncronos mode, if the person is on a slow internet connection, the box pops up before a reply has been received from authorize.net.

What I need to have this do is to postpone the processing of the popup dialog until I get a valid answer of either "Error" or "Ok" from authnet. Anything else should wait for that reply.

In the script below, the call to auth.net is made on line 23:  var resp = sendPay2Auth(apiLoginID, clientID, extr);

On the next line it then looks for the value of resp.respcd.  If it says, "Error" it returns false and thus the dialog box does not pop up.

If it returns "Ok" it pops up the dialog box for them to continue.

But the problem is if the call to authorize.net has sent back a response yet, it gives a value of "undefined" in which case it then just does nothing at this point. Which leaves the customer hanging.

So what I'm looking for is how to code this so that the script will just "wait" until it gets back either an "Ok" or and "Error" in the field designated as …
Hello Experts,

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

            I realize that various credit cards have a 1% to 5% cash back rewards setup for specific purchases which total up to X amount of dollars.  I would like to take this to the next level and bring this concept outside of the box a little bit by asking this question.  Is it possible to get to award points which can be converted to gift cards or PayPal deposits by Amazon and Ebay for purchases made with a debit or PayPal account?  Perhaps there are third-party companies which act like a middle man between the customer and big companies that provide this benefit.  With the holidays forthcoming,  I think this would be an excellent way of lifting some of the financial burden commonly experienced each year.  What does everyone else think?  Is it possible?  If so, where can I go online to check this option out?

             Thank you

My OS is win 10 Prof 64 bit and I downloaded the Bitcoins Core software version 15.0.1  64 bit, I created a wallet, and then bought some test bitcoins from a atm machine.  When I returned I opened the software and it synced with the network, and according to the forum it takes a long time and downloads a lot of data.  But how long is long?  the software shows the : Estimated time left until synced : 2 weeks.  
Am I doing anything wrong to cause this, and how do I recover and is there a faster way.  Thank u for your advise. Regards

I'm using opencart  I'm not a developer and don't really know what will be causing my opencart problem.  

I've just moved my opencart site to a new web host site.

The information pages, ie Terms and Conditions for example, are not displaying properly. They were fine on the previous site. The other information pages are also affected the same way

I've attached a file that shows the problem. (I've only shown the left hand side so as to avoid putting my company name up for all to see).

As you will see, the text that is entered in the description runs down behind the other option boxes.

Anyone know what is causing this and what I need to do to fix it?
