Hi all

Great to see that these new modules are out of beta. :) I seem to remember there was a guide on how to install them. They need to be installed in a certain order? Can you run that by me again or provide a link.

Many thanks
Ceri

Thay can be installed all at once but enabling them should be done in order because of their dependencies. The Payment first, then Subscription and Store.
You shouldn't be able to go wrong though as Subscription and Store will not enable if there is not an enabled Payment module.

Yes you can - as long as you have no subscribers using FoxyCart.

The payments module looks terrific, but how do you collect? Normally payment is due after services are fully rendered. I have a few service ideas for which no one will pay up front. How do you circumvent the payment processors in this case? Thanks!

Payment is made before work starts when the order is placed. Suggest not doing the work then hoping for payment.

Can you walk me through an example? In a simple case lets say a band is offering to play at events. (For example at USC you can contact the university's music department and hire a musician - alumini or current student). If I list that service on my site the presumption is that there is no conversation or negotiation to arrive at a mutually agreed upon cost , time and terms. Very few service transactions are paid up front. Especially if the business is just starting out and has little in the way of reputation in the market. Few people get paid in advance when they go to work. We get paid after we show up and do the work.

Is there a way to list the service without requiring payment up front so buyer and seller can introduce themselves and start negotiating aterwhich you can get paid in full or partially until the work is completed? Something aligned more around the sales process of pitch, negotiation and close.
The service shop is a great idea but not every transaction will result in a closed deal. Personally, I like to shop and meet the service providers until I'm comfortable with their abilities. And as a service provider I would expect to have to sell my services.

I love this idea. It has great potential value. But in my very humble opinion ( I'm a newbie trying to learn quickly) it has greater value if the service listing and offer are uncoupled until a deal is made. Maybe thats already built in and I'm missing it.

Thanks!

No - the payments module is designed for selling things - i.e. eCommerce, not as a general business sales funnel module.

Sorry!

Actually its all good. I took a closer look. Dont charge for the service initially or specify a deposit and you can use it as I described.
Well done!

Paypal or Stripe? I'm told that Paypal has greater brand recognition and customer confidence so the conversion rates are higher. Anyone have experience or advice I can follow?

Thanks!
