What it does
We help people to make money online while they are at home. We start with the English online lessons, e.g. a 45min English lesson via Skype for $10.
How I built it
We have the payment SDK integrated with the website. People can start receiving money in 5 minutes.
Challenges I ran into
Payment Issue. Most English learners are not from US or Europe, and they don't use Visa/Master credit card online. We need to make sure they can pay with their own way, instead of Paypal or Credit Card.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We have helped more than a hundred of SMBs to get money now. They are using our products to get paid every day.
What I learned
Local business will start migrating online. Customer will tend to use online platform comparing with the offline business. Therefore, the merchants or the freelancers need to find a way to be paid online.
