For a project I am working on I have some things to figure out.
If I have a question about payment systems like apple pay or google pay or similar systems, can I ask it here?
Apologies, I am a novice. Research is new to me.
The popular payment systems I have in mind (paypal, venmo, apple pay, google pay and similar), is it a one-time login and off to nfc the groceries today, next week etc. without confirming every time?
How big or small can transactions be with those systems? From 1 cent to 5000 dollars?
The company would be EU based and the currency would ultimately be euros. Whether a twitch-style token system is to be used is not yet decided but possible. It would then be 1 credit = 50 eurocents.
They allow for purchases online, I have been drilling down on a thought to see how easy it might be to build a button that uses those systems for smooth payments to media & services.
We all know that wikipedia is constantly asking for donations, that newspapers all around the world are bleeding money like a stuck pig and that consumers are slowly being strangled by endless and ever more expensive subscriptions.
I am trying to create a solution that would satisfy both sides. Creators get (a bit) more money, reliably, while consumers get an easy way to reward the hard work of a newspaper they wouldn’t subscribe to in a million years but do acknowledge the quality of.
Perhaps not a newspaper. Perhaps it’s github, or someone may finally give vlc or winrar some pennies… lord knows they’ve earned some.
I believe it would be a win-win.
People with technical knowledge may message me or comment, I welcome input and support.
Thanks in advance.
