Posted on Oct 05, 2018
In recent years, we've heard about the shared economy and the on-demand economy. Now, there's the API economy.

3 Tips for Integrating to a Payment Gateway

Posted on Sep 21, 2018
Weaving payment tools into the applications you build was once seen as a major cost for independent software vendors (ISVs):  You have to invest more development time to integrate payments. Your clients become more exposed to security risk (i.e., fraud). You have to worry about payment-related patches and updates.  While these costs haven’t disappeared, the ability to provide a frictionless payment experience allows you to reach a much larger audience. End-users want turn-key solutions, not patchworks of third-party add-ons.

6 Payment Security Tips for ISVs

Posted on Aug 28, 2018
Open source contamination is the bane of many independent software vendors (ISVs). If even a tiny snippet of open source code makes it into your build, the entire application might legally be reclassified as “open source.”  To avoid this, developers must invest a lot of time creating bespoke code entirely from scratch. As an ISV, there’s another type of “contamination” of which you need to be aware — one that has to do with payment security. Or more specifically, PCI compliance.

4 Tips for Making Payment Integration Easier for ISVs

Posted on Aug 06, 2018
As an independent software vendor (ISV), you already know that end users expect turn-key solutions that work out of the box. The more tightly you can integrate payments with the solutions you provide, the fewer headaches your clients will face. That’s because there won’t be as many interoperability issues or moving parts for them to handle.  Meeting your end users’ expectations will require extra effort and development time. That’s no small feat — especially if you have limited resources.

How Brands Deliver Personalized Shopping with Conversational Commerce

Posted on Aug 02, 2018
Modern marketing has changed a lot since the early days of television. Advertisers used to blast generic messages to the masses (hence the term “mass marketing”). They hoped enough people were watching at that precise moment to receive those messages.  Fast forward 70 years. There now exists any number of technologies that allow companies to send highly targeted, location-independent messages to potential users.

Posted on Jul 31, 2018
Running a small business means everything is on a smaller scale. However, that doesn't mean it's any easier. This is especially true if you are a one-man band or have a few remote employees. In managing your work and life, you are most likely always on the go and tuned into your mobile device.

What is a White Hat Hacker? A Day in the Life

Posted on Jun 05, 2018
As a business owner, getting hacked is one of the worst things that can happen.  Whether for financial gain, revenge or pure joy, bad actors exploit vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure — and they now have access to your sensitive data:  They do this to steal information (such as credit card numbers).
