Following numerous requests, I’ve recently added Paypal as an option for subscriptions. I’m sorry it took so long; unfortunately these things are not easy!
So subscribers can now choose to pay via a debit or credit card (transactions handled by Worldpay), or by Paypal. Huzzah!
At some point I also want to replace Worldpay with something less, well, crap. It does the job, but the user interface is awful. Worldpay is what happens when you take a traditional payment machine service — you know, like how you pay in a restaurant — and convert it to an online system. It’s old-fashioned, and from a developer’s perspective it feels clunky and foreign to the web.
For now, I’m going to wait for Stripe to expand beyond the US. Stripe looks like a properly web-native payment system.
Here it is!
Hope you find this useful, and let me know if you have any questions!
I’ve been reviewing the past and thinking about what to change. I thought I’d share those ideas here.
You could be forgiven for thinking the Badminton Bible is dead, or at least withering. Since July, I’ve only put up one new video and one article!
But appearances can be deceptive. I haven’t abandoned the site, and you can expect to see regular content again within the next week or so. Right now I have two videos filmed but not yet edited (footwork for returning the flick serve, and basic forehand drop shots).
At long last, I have a blog. It should be useful for posting news and such (does any website have a “news” page these days?).
I may yet survive this. But if blogging fails to turn my brain to jelly, what about Twitter? I’m not out the woods yet.
