I am about to launch a WordPress/WooCommerce site but worry about around the clock support for my site since my developer's in India, Monday thru Friday.

That's about 25% of the week! That being said, I would expect the bulk of sales to be on Eastern Standard Time, 8AM to Midnight, which means his coverage percentage is higher that 25%.

Are there are support models you can think of which would be me paying some small retainer for a WP developer to be on call and getting notified if there is a hiccup or site outage? Then, if there is real work that's needed, I'd pay on an hourly basis?

Curious...

Do I need to be worried at all about the site have problems which could cause it to be unavailable to process further orders?

I am not worried there may be a one in a hundred error rate which I can resolve when the email comes in, but instead, having a site outage causing orders to stop.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

I need to decide if I should hire a security expert to try and "break" my site.

I have the latest updates for WordPress and WooCommerce and host it at AWS as EC2.

Where kinds of security problems might I have?

I already changed the database username to no longer use "root".

Can you think of things I can do to nail down the site?

Is it worth having a security guy look at it?

Thanks.

I'm going to build a web portal for customers to log in and make payments.  I want to be able to accept bank transfers and credit cards.  I'm looking for an API where I can use my form, and hand off the payment details to a service that does the processing.  I would prefer that I don't have to store the payment info locally in order to offer the customer the option to "save" the payment info.  I would prefer that the service stores the payment information (credit card or bank details) on their end and has some method for me to tell them to just use the payment info they have on file.
This is for a small business, so no luxury priced options, please.

Also, please tell me the main positives and negatives you've faced when working with this API.

I have a Wordpress site with WooCommerce and have my entire store working for PDF download, after purchase.

My WooCommerce emails out a URL to the PDF file for download. But I need to give mobile users the option of using Dropbox.

How do I do this?

Is this a WordPress plug-in? Or an option / plug-in for WooCommerce?

Thanks

I have a book on PDF which I expect to be about 500 MB in size. Far too big to email to the buyer, after purchase via PayPal. I will sell the PDF on my WordPress website.

Can I sell a PDF to an iPhone user?

I have no interest in diving back into being an Apple Developer at the moment, but will do so if people show an interest in my book. But, with my book selling on my website, are buyers forced to download the PDF on their PC's? And does this mean they must use Dropbox (for example) as a way to read the book on their iPhones?

I am curious.

Thanks.

I have a subscription $5 mo project management product and want to sell it on Facebook among other places.  I have put it on youtube and am curious what the best method is for selling it using Facebook and/or other tools?

I don't want to write too much about it here because I do not want to violate any rules or guidelines.

Assistance regarding potential selling methods is greatly appreciated.

I have a Word 2017 (Mac) doc that is outputting a PDF that is 362 MB in size. I have about 85 pictures in there which I have not yet compressed. but this only represent about half of the book.

I plan to sell this on download from my website, so the question is, what kinds of expectations are there for file size of the PDF they purchase?

Then, what about needing to support the bandwidth of such a large file? If I sell it, using eBay, for $9.99, I clear about $9.50 per copy. How much money will I spend simply paying AWS:EC2 for the bandwidth of 1/2 Gigabyte download?

Thanks

I need to turn on email alerts to notify me of a new Like or new Follow on Twitter. How do I do this?

And I have the app ruing on my iPhone 6 and get an alert on my cell-phone. If I need to turn this off, how do I do so?

Thanks

I have a book I am coming out with and would like to make it easy for people to click a button or URL and have that open Twitter with a default Tweet I could embed in my doc. If they want to send it as is, great.

Also, can I attach an image to this?

Also, how can  I do this with Facebook also?

I guess a link could easily be pasted but that would include MY Twitter account. Is that desired? Would that mean I need to make the tweet before I can paste it into the PDF?

Thanks.

Building a Wordpress site for a non-profit organization with about a thousand members.  I have very little experience with a membership plugin.  Looking for recommendations and help.  Key functionality includes:
  • Multi-level membership levels.  For example basic membership (free), standard level, pro level.  Each level would allow access to different levels of protected content.
  • Ability to integrate membership credentials with forum login.  Need to provide a single sign-on process that allows members access to protected content on website in addition to providing ability to post to forum (non-members will be allowed to view forum, but not post).
  • Ability to build custom functions.  For example to create a registration process for their annual convention.
  • Integration with Woocommerce (or similar e-commerce plugin) for payment of membership fees.
Any recommendations will be much appreciated!

I plant to start a political podcast in the near future, but want to plan ahead so it can be successful.

I have lots of questions...

- What is the ideal length? 1 hour per week? Can it vary in length based on length of the content?

- What are some good ways to promote my podcast?

- Are there any income earning opportunities from a podcast with a lot of listeners?

- What are the listenership for some of the more successful podcasts?

- What kinds of "do's" and "don'ts" are there?

I could plan to apply some budget to promotion. If Facebook the best?

Thanks.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

             I had a chance to check out a site for income potential for writers at iWriter.com.  While I found the organization and format of their site very appealing, I was not too pleased with the observed monetary compensation offers which were low.  With this point in mind, I am wondering if anyone might possibly be aware of any sites which have a similar style to iWriter.com, but, offer writers a bit more monetary compensation for their work.

             Thank you

             George

My credit score has greatly improved and the value of my home has also skyrocketed compared to how much is left on my current mortgage.

I would like to refinance my current mortgage and also draw money through a home equity line of credit to pay off other higher interest rate debt.

What are some good banks, credit unions, or financial institutions for doing this?

Goal is not final answer. Keywords are great. If I increase my vocabulary then I appear smarter.

I can not test process on my own because website has changed
I can not make a test purchase on my own
and make screenshots of every page.
No contract. I do not know the entire scope of the project.
what was on the site in a previous iteration?

going through the pages of information of an e-commerce website purchase one year ago (website changed)

I am resolving a contract dispute because both parties are not really sure what is agreed to

this is a custom content management system where I do not have access to code


my role is to ask the other side for their programmer to produce screenshots of every page clicked to make a purchase

while producing this data may be difficult to the other side;
they cant just go on archive.org because website is dynamic and https
I would like to use a few words as possible to make this difficult suggest seem regular


for example;
show me the "wire frames" of the ecommerce process 1 year ago.
