Subscriptions 2.3 is here!
Subscriptions version 2.3 was released on July 5th. We are excited to introduce a number of new features in this release along with performance enhancements, fixes, and other changes that may be interesting to developers. This post will take you through some of the changes coming in this release of Subscriptions.
Building Momentum: WooCommerce Bitcoin Business
Although the price of bitcoin might be tanking (today it fell below the $200 mark for the first time since October 2013), there is still plenty of momentum building in Bitcoin, as both a technology and a movement.
Another technology that has momentum of its own? WooCommerce, of course.
So to reflect the nexus of these two growing movements, we thought we’d bring you five WooCommerce stores that are offering Bitcoin-related products.
Why Payments Are So Hot Right Now
Payments, payments, payments. I could write about them all day. In what’s shaping up to be the next innovation battleground, there’s just so much going on lately.
To that end, Accenture released its 2014 North American Consumer Payments Survey of 4,000 consumers last month. The survey canvassed respondents’ attitudes to different ways of making payments, as well as their expectations of the future.
Sell With Stellar, Using WooCommerce
We’re excited to announce that we’ve launched a new, free WooCommerce Stellar Gateway extension.
There are over three million Stellar Facebook authorisations, but very few are selling via the Stellar protocol or in the Stellar cryptocurrency.
The WooCommerce Stellar Gateway is a way for non-developers to sell with Stellar.
If you can set up WordPress and WooCommerce, you can sell with Stellar.
What is Really Going on With Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is mysterious. Is it the cryptocurrency used by criminals? A tool of anarchists? Or is Bitcoin simply a way to buy goods on Overstock.com?
Last week, Bitcoin news resource Coindesk released its Q3 State of Bitcoin Report for 2014, which helps unpack what is really going on with Bitcoin right now.
Stellar: The Choice of a New Generation
Last week we “nerded out” over Stellar, a new financial protocol that we think has the potential to change the fabric of the global financial system.
Hence, the Prospress SF team (i.e. Brent and I) were excited to be able to attend the first ever Stellar Developer Meetup, at the Stripe offices in San Francisco.
If you’ll permit us some further nerding out, keep on reading.
Will Stellar Finally Fix International Payments?
Whenever you do an international currency transfer—be it an international purchase on your credit card, a purchase of foreign currency, or a transfer of money back to your family in your home country—you can pretty much assume that you’ll lose a fair chunk of cash.
The Future of Global Payments and ECommerce
Payments are the lifeblood of eCommerce. It’s no surprise then that there are a hundreds of startups, investors and innovators looking to disrupt payments.
With so many new and existing companies, it can be overwhelming to keep up. That’s why we were excited to find a fantastic slide deck from BI Intelligence on The Future of Payments.
