An Update on Ribbon and Twitter

After a productive conversation with Twitter, we’ve been given access again to Product Cards, and are actively implementing support for Ribbon content. While this isn’t the same in-stream payments we released yesterday, that is still our big vision and one that we’ll actively work on finding a way to enable.

It’s important to note that this in no way affects what we’ve already released in our product. We’re still doing in-stream credit card payments on Facebook today, and that’s still very much active.

In addition to that, we have support for putting our links on YouTube. Through our button, we also enable you to embed the whole process on your own website, blog, WordPress, or Tumblr.

One very important new update that was unfortunately over-shadowed yesterday is our pricing change, something we’ve spent a lot of time working on implementing. At 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction, we’re now competitive with the biggest players in payments and – unlike any of the competition – can help you sell across more platforms.

On a personal note, the amount of support we’ve received from everybody has been overwhelming. What we have shown yesterday is that our vision and product are extremely well-received. That’s what motivates us every day.

Stay tuned for more from us. This was just the beginning and, if you thought that was cool, wait until what we’re planning to do next!
