I'm starting a business using funds from donations. Raised $200 in a few days, I'm pretty excited. I have a lot planned like a website and a place locally to sell from. This project is in it's infancy right now and any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I’m new to this board and looking for advice. I’m looking to build a photo-sharing iPhone app but I don’t know how to code myself. I’ve thought about hiring developers, but I sort of want someone to help me think through the software part of the idea before jumping in. Does anyone know of any good resources for this?
We are looking for a payment provider that can help us solve our biggest problem. Our company is based in Hong Kong and we are currently using PayPal and Worldpay. 90% of our customers are based in the US, meaning that every transaction counts as an international transaction.
Most US cards don’t allow for international payments and seem to be even stricter when it come to payments going to china. Result: 40% of our payments get declined by the card issuing bank. Once the customer calls his bank and clears the payment it goes through but only few customer do that.
So we are looking for an alternative payment provider that can help us solve this problem. Most likely we have to find a way to process payments domestically in order to avoid this problem and are looking for solutions.
Has anybody had experiences with similar situations?
If someone`s starting a clothing line, they would only need to trademark the logo, right? To my understanding, logos are trademarked, inventions are patented, and any written materials (i.e., songs, books, etc) are copyrighted. Please let me know if I`ve got this right.
