[POLL] New Payment Option Called "Snapcash"

Recommended Posts

Ok, I'm sure everyone has heard of Snapchat, and if you haven't it's basically an app you download, and you can send & receive pictures, but for only 1-10 seconds and once you view them for the time that the sender, has sent for, it's disappeared forever.

 

Full details on what Snapchat is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapchat

 

Okay, that's out of the way, Snapchat has came up with this new thing called "Snapcash"

 

What exactly this is, you have to be first 18 or older for it to be available on your snapchat account, and then you link your debit card, to your snapchat account note: it only accepted debit cards linked to banks, not credit cards. 

 

It is a VERY quick process, and it takes around 30 seconds to 1 minute to send money, and receive money.

 

 

 

 

I just tried this process out today, and this is how it went;

 

First, I added my debit card to my Snapchat account, to do this, go to your Snapchat settings, and find Snapcash, you can't miss it. It will only be available for users on Snapchat who are 18 or older.

 

Then, I found a gold seller (my friend), who sold me gold for $47. They also have to have their debit card linked, so when they receive money, it goes directly on their card as cash, because we all know debit acts as cash, and debit is linked to your bank, so the money goes right into your bank account. To send them the money, you start a chat session, which if you have snapchat, you would know how, then you simply put for my case, " $47 " no quotes of course, then instead of a yellow send button, it'll change to green, then it'll ask if you're sure you want to send money to this person, then you put yes, then it's literally done.

 

Note, there's no fees when using this.

 

Snapcash is partnered with Square, which is a professional Credit Card Processing, basically you attach Square to your phone, and someone swipes their card, and it charges them, You can find all info on that here: https://squareup.com/

 

Note; you don't need to do that for Snapcash, its all virtually done.

 

Here's a link with pictures on how SnapCash works and looks, http://techcrunch.com/2014/11/17/snapcash/

 

 

 

 

So my ultimate question is, would YOU use this? 

 

My reasoning behind wanting to use this is simple, it's easier, and safer than PayPal.

 

Firstly, It's all done through Square, so there's no charge backs. 

Secondly, it's a safe alternative than to PayPal with people charging back very easily.

 

All of the big known reputable gold sellers require ID for their sales, so they could simply have the buyer send them a Snapchat picture of their ID, so they can confirm who they're selling to. 

 

Another HUGE plus is, ALL the money goes in and out of your Bank! There's no waiting 3-5 days like PayPal to transfer funds, and all the money is going directly from your bank and out of your bank, and back in.

 

The only downside is the limit, and location.

 
"Snapcash is currently only available to Snapchat users in the United States, who are at least 18 years old and who have a Visa or Mastercard debit card. According to Snapchat, the limit on funds sent can be raised to up to $2,500 per week, and $1,000 per month for funds received."

 

The only ways I can think of them attempting to chargeback money, is they go to their bank and claim unauthorized, but then that's where you have their IDs saved and you will have their image, name, address, and all that good stuff incase they do claim unauthorized, you can somehow track them down and confirm they authorized the purchase, but I don't know how Square, or Snapcash handles virtual sales. But it would basically be sending money to a friend.

 

I think this is a very solid step to selling Gold safely, instead of the Paypal ways.

 

Let me know what you think?

 

Would you use this, Yes or No?

 

I'm tallying up all Yes's, compared to No's.

What's unique about this as opposed to any other payment processor?

BTC has anonymity.

PayPal has seller options & api.

Snapcash lets you switch from smut to banking in a few taps?

 

Also, it's only available in the US. It wouldn't work on any international customers, which is way too limiting.

    • [READ TO THE END FOR A TEASER]

      I've noticed some new TRiBotters have had some troubles finding out sources of how to do certain things, such as using advanced scripts and often get lost in the forums.

      We are still getting posts asking where to start, what to do, recommended scripts, etc. 

      As many of you know, I am new to the team, and had troubles myself learning how to bot, let alone script. 

      So, what our team decided to do was make it easier to learn how to bot, how to script, and just become an overall better botter and scripter faster. 

      As some of you might have seen, I've posted 3 new blogs, you can check it out by clicking on the following picture or here.


      These first 3 blogs are the first of many blogs that will be TRiBot official. They are encouraged to be challenged, improved upon and act as A Best Practices Guide for Botters.

      What information would you like to see in the blogs?

      👇 [TEASER] 👇

      .

      We are going to be hosting a  CONTEST  this  OCTOBER.

      Its scary to think how soon you'll find out.👻

      Stay tuned.

    • Today marks a big day for TRiBot! To make it easier for users to use TRiBot, we've created installers available for every platform! These installers are all bundled with the latest version of OpenJDK 1.8 (Java 😎, which is LG compatible.

      Using TRiBot is now easy. Simply download the installer for your platform, install TRiBot, and run it. The TRiBot Loader will correctly identify the bundled JDK so there's no need to change the Java selection.

      Windows

      EXE installer: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.exe


      MSI installer: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.msi


      Portable version: TRiBot-windows-x64-4.0.3.zip


      Mac OS

      Installer: TRiBot-macos-4.0.3.dmg


      Portable version: TRiBot-macos-4.0.3.tgz


      Unix/Linux

      Installer: TRiBot-unix-4.0.3.sh


      RPM installer (CentOS/Fedora): TRiBot-linux-4.0.3.rpm


      DEB installer (Debian): TRiBot-linux-4.0.3.deb


      Portable version: TRiBot-unix-4.0.3.tar.gz


      Platform Independent

      JAR file: tribot-loader-4.0.3.jar


      Note that this jar file does not include the bundled JDK.



      Windows and Mac OS users may notice a warning message stating that the installer/application is un-recognized or un-trusted. Please ignore this message and proceed with running the installer/application. We need to acquire a code signing certificate so that we can sign the installers letting the operating system know that these files can be trusted. It will take a week or more to acquire one, so please hold tight.

      Other notable changes to the TRiBot Loader:

      Support getting the version from OpenJDK distributions


      Add check for bundled JDK


      Copy OpenJDK tools.jar to the bundled JDK if not present


      Set the current java as the first available list entry


      Ignore Java versions which are symbolic links


      Make the bundled JDK the preferred Java version


      Update icon images


      Reduce the number of HTTP calls

    • TRiBot is looking to improve a lot of its customer relationship management, customer on boarding process, customer experience, design elements, community engagement and pretty much everything else you can imagine when it comes to marketing.

      Our goal: To ensure that the marketing done TRULY reflects the experience and does not shine an inaccurate light on what TRiBot is lacking in.

      So I ask, what do you love about TRiBot and what do you hate about TRiBot? What does O S Bot, Rune M8, PowR Bot and Dre amBot do better? (yes I purposely didn't spell it right 😂).

      Love,

    • Hello TRiBot,

      Today we have a significant release that has been in the works for the last month addressing several key issues, features and bugs in the backlog.

      With these changes, we are also including a new TRiBot Loader which will allow you to select any version that is released. This adds the flexibility of allowing you to revert to a previous version should an issue arise, run development only builds, view an accurate change log between versions etc. we are very proud to offer this feature and think it will add a lot more functionality down the road as we continue to release new versions.

      These changes include 80+ commits by our development team, a list of them is summarized below and also available for your viewing pleasure in the new TRiBot Loader.

      In addition, we have taken additional steps to improve as a development team by adding continuous integration and deployment into our workflow to assist in delivering timely releases such as bug fixes as well as new features on a weekly basis depending on our development cycle.
