Now taking credit cards...

It's 1am, and the DWfaq Store is now taking credit cards. Buh bye PayPal.

It was worth it to ditch PayPal.

Well the biggest problem with dealing with digital delivery is that the payment is made separately from the order. Since you have to have a login of some sort in order to securely deliver a download, this became almost impossible to keep track of. It was entirely possible for someone to add a product to their paypal cart without loggin into the site and associating their username with their order. So the entire process became disconnected. Let's also remember that PayPal is not a bank, transactions are not insured, and their fraud policies... well... they leave much to be desired :). So all in all it's a happy move... was hard to get through, because it came with a whole slew of additional upgrades to the store, along with the release of Cartweaver 2, but I'm finally getting a chance to breathe :).
