Building a Medium-like applications that allows people to monetize Post-walls efforts. I have seen some sites Article Pages, Blogs Page Writing, News walls, Articles Page etc. that says "Pay $2 USD" to continue reading this Articles, News etc.
Some Software Engineers who develops Open Source Applications often write in their Page, "Please Donate or buy us a Coffee of "0.99 centto help maintain this projects. All this micro-payments provides a way for some people to earn some pay.
Now what if you can say " Pay 0.2 SOL" to continue reading this Article or Tip us a Coffee at "0.9 SOL" to continue using our free Softwares.
This kind of micro payments can be now be done by Solana Online Digital Payments that allows the Articles/Blogs Publisher to receive digital payments directly on its Solana Public Payments Address in real-time.
What it does
It allows News Walls Publishers, Articles Page Writers, Blog Writers , Donation and Coffee Tea Requesters etc. to receive some micro digital payments directly on their Solana Digital Wallets.
Steps to Follow:
1.)You can Register as a Writer or Reader via Status. Though the Status does not matter.
2.)When you register, the application automatically generate you a Solana Wallets Address both (Public Keys and Private/Secret Keys) via Solana web3.js
If you already have Solana Public Key Address that you want to use, you can update it within our application by going to Application Menu, Click Edit Solana Wallets.
3.) To Create Articles, News Walls, Blogs Write Up etc, click Create Posts
4.) To buy or Donate to Articles, Blogs, News Walls etc, The Sender/Buyer should use its Solana Public Keys and Secret Key Pair. we integrated Payments Transactions using Solana Web3js
Note that we Plan to integrate Solana Payments Wallets Adapter for Better Security.
Whenever a Sender/Buyer sends, SOL payments to the Articles/New Walls Owner, an Email is sent to the Reciever to inform her about the Transactions
5.)You can track all your sent and received payments directly from the application dashboard.
6.) To always Check your Solana Account Balance and Infos click Check Your Solana Account Details options
