Accept Payments From Your Site in Minutes With PintPay

pintpay-logo.pngFor startups and small businesses operating online, one of the biggest headaches can be setting up the ability to accept payments from one's Website.

The latest attempt at relieving this pain point is PayPint, a Web app created by former Scribd developer James Yu, who also authored a JavaScript API for Gmail called Gmailr.


PintPay promises to be a hassle-free way of adding payments and recurring payments to one's Website. It forgoes the need to deal with payment gateways, merchant accounts and coding of any sort in favor of a simple dashboard from which one can set up new products, set their prices, track customer history and configure the design of the payment pages.


It's these features that Yu says sets PintPay apart from similar products like Chargify, Recurly and CheddarGetter.

Another difference is in its pricing model. Users pay 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction. There's no monthly fee until you reach $300 in monthly revenue, at which point you start paying $29 per month.

PintPay is ideal for charging customers for things like software upgrades or recurring subscriptions, rather than for building out a complex shopping cart.

Once you've set up your product details and pricing, the result is a hosted product page, which can be customized with any background image and color scheme you desire. PintPay also has an API which can be used to retrieve customer information and manage subscriptions.

To give it a try, sign up and use the coupon code RWW. The first 20 ReadWriteWeb readers to do so will get access to the beta version of PintPay.
