You need something that can handle requests in /jobs route, can you do custom code in Ghost Premium?

As a word around we can do jobs.nocsdegree.com

Ok, yeah will look into ghost options. Can always have a sub domain in the mean time 😎

yes, please add sheet2site dns for this.

Did you try find auto VAT MOSS for Stripe?

Before started to change payment processor maybe could be a good idea to try to fix current problem without switching from Stripe?

Just to let you know that there are services that handle VAT MOSS for Stripe automatically, for example: Quaderno $49/mo (I didn't try it).

Paddle and Gumroad

Also you can try Paddle or Gumroard.

Paddle and Gumroard, the are both handle VAT MOSS automatically and you can choose rather you will pay (include in the price) or a customer (added as extra to price).

How they are working?

Gumroad and Paddle serving all your clients and you have just 1 client - Gumroard or Paddle that are sending you money:

Client 1
             \
Client 2  --- Gumroad (Paddle) --- You
             /
Client N

Fees:

Gumroad:

  • Fee is 3.5% + $0.3
  • Can be withdraw only to PayPal (if you are outside US)
  • Withdraw once a Week.
  • Min withdraw is $10

Paddle:

  • Fee is 5% + $0.5
  • Can be withdraw only to Bank, Payoneer, PayPal
  • Withdraw once a Month.
  • Min withdraw is $100
  • Tip: Paddle will charge 10% extra if they first payment wasn’t completed but they converted users with their auto email follow-ups. It’s called β€œCheckout recovery” β€” user opened email, clicked on the link and made a payment. But seems like you can turn it off

Other

  • Both accept payments from PayPal (your users can pay with PayPal). Stripe is not support it.
  • Both have recurrent payments
  • Both have API
  • Seems like Gumroad is more fore Digital products (like apps, membership) and Paddle is more for SaaS. But it's not limiting you to use it opposite.

So what should you choose?

I would suggest to do the math and calculate how much it will total cost you for all 3 solutions:

  1. Stripe with auto VATT MOSS service
  2. Paddle
  3. Gumroad

You can play around with different amount of transactions and prices.

Here is calculator spreadsheet for you: Make a copy

So you can make a decision consciously based on data.

Keep us updated which solution you will choose. I think a lot of people here have the same problem.

Good luck!

Yes it's possible with Stripe Checkout.

You will need a static website where you will need to add a Stripe script which will be triggered when user will press a button.

After that the user will be go to Stripe website and enter credit cards details (I think you can't customize fields but you can add your logo and color), and after user will go back to your website (you can choose what the page).

I tired and it's pretty easy to setup. Works for subscription and not subscription products.

Also you can send auto emails from Zapier when you will receive successful payment.

P.S. I will cost a bit more compared to usual Stripe with back-end.

Options:

  1. JS + Node.js + Express
  2. Ruby + Rails
  3. Python + Django
  4. PHP + Laravel

Whatever you know & works fastest for you.

For me, it's the 1st one. Everything JS :)

Personal preferences matters a lot. And I agree with Akshay. Pick whatever works best for you.

I’ve always loved Ruby’s syntax and found it very pleasant to work with β€” despite having friends who never really liked it.

As such, I would go with 2. Ruby on Rails.

JS hands down. It gives you the most options of things you can build going forward (think desktop apps, mobile apps, CLIs, even operating systems) as well as it's the MVP on the web so I see no reason to pick anything else.

I only have recent experience with Ruby on Rails, so it's impossible to fairly compare them all. That said, I do believe Ruby on Rails is (still) a great way to quickly develop a web-based product. It's not the right tool for every job (e.g. single-page apps and real-time apps), but for a relatively straight forward CRUD app (Creating, Reading, Updating, and Deleting records) it's extremely fast to get something up and running.

Plus, there are a hundreds if not thousands of high-quality Rubygems for common functionality such as authentication, commenting, and most other common site features.

For me important is a sound quality, comfort, isolation. I don't really care in bluetooth and noise canceling.

I tried these:

  • V-Moda Crossfade M100 Over-Ear
  • Sennheiser HD8
  • Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Apple
  • Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO
  • Sennheiser HD 25
  • Sennheiser HD 600
  • Sennheiser HD 650
  • Sennheiser IE80
  • Sennheiser IE 800S
  • Bose QC 35 II (I used them for 6 month but sold because sound quality is sucks)
  • Sony Sony 1000XM2 Wireless
  • Sennheiser Momentum Wireless
  • AIAIAI TMA-2
  • Audio-Technica ATH-M50x

And the winner is Sennheiser HD 25 Light with velour pads (I bought extra).

Sound quality: 8/10
Comfort: 6/10
Price: $130 + $20 for pads

Disadvantage is they have 3m cable which is too long.

For quite places I'm using AirPods.

Wow that's quite a list. I'll check them out :)

  • Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 Ohms when working and traveling on the laptop.
  • Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 250 Ohms when working on my stationary setup in Berlin (Mac mini).
  • EarPods (the ones with cable) when traveling - to save battery (though I have the AirPods with me as a backup).

The Beyerdynamic ones have gentle isolation - not too strong. They're also great for voiceover recordings, and I've seen in them in many of the almost 100 hundred recording studios I've visited throughout Europe, UK, and the US. I don't know if it's fair to say that they are "industry standard" (whatever that also means) but they have a decent share in the market, imho.

YEEEESSS! Please include taxes, cost of leaving (rent, food), insuarences, O1 visa

are you making more than $2,000 per month?

no no, have not released yet. During beta I made 50$/m and Paddle ruined that :)

So do you think that incorporate USA company with Stripe Atlas, understand USA tax and open a bank is easier then understand how to register in PayPal, connect bank to PayPal and make a PayPal button?

In India, I think you can send, receive and withdraw money https://www.paypal.com/in/webapps/mpp/payment-methods

And here how you can make a PayPal button: https://twitter.com/AndreyAzimov/status/1017382936411136000

But Stripe Atlas is much more stable solution for stable business (not just idea validation or something that $1-2k / month). So if your business is so mature maybe it make sense.

Interesting in your experience with Stipe Atlas.

yes Andrey, you are right. I was also thinking in the same direction initially.

After using Paddle it really makes things easier. I really don't manage anything like billing/subscriptions and all. I'm looking for a similar experience, that's why thinking of going with Stripe.

I also think that if I use Stripe, user signup conversion rate will increase. Not sure if that's correct thinking.

are you making more than $2,000 per month?

no no, have not released yet. During beta I made 50$/m and Paddle ruined that :)
