Hi Houghy,

I don't have any experience with the Apple platform, but really start to think that it will be exciting adventure. Who knows, one day maybe we will use APT on iPad?

A small bug had slipped in 1.70 so there was need to put 1.71 on the site. Excuse me for the inconvenience!

Ivo,

I'm interested in the software but ponder why paypal over direct deposit or a payment directly from Visa or Mastercard? What does a payment from Visa or Mastercard linked to paypal offer parties?

I only ask because I get annoying spam e-mail from "paypal" all the time - and I've never signed up for paypal before. I know my wife has an account - I'll drop a hint this would make a nice birthday present!

Matt

PayPal spam doesn't usually come from signing up with PayPal but from other sites. Just a way to get your attention to click on their virus links.

I find that good Junk filter are very good at junking these PayPal junk now, although i use Google mail.

Hi Matt,

The main reason to use PayPal is that so far I didn't find credit card processor that want to work with a business in Eastern Europe We are still discriminated in this field... Recently I found that the alternative AlertPay has some problems, so it is temporary disabled.

Ivo,

PayPal has a merchant facility now that allow direct credit card transactions without people logging on. It doesn't offer the payment protection to the purchaser but if someone doesn't want to use PayPal then it is the only offer.

Unfortunately it cost $30.00 per month so you will have to way up the pro's and con of such a facility.
