In Topic: Liability Shift On Cc Coming Oct 1, 2015

Today, 01:22 PM

I just got this note from Intuit GoPayment:


"It is our priority to ensure that you have a smooth transition towards adopting EMV and we’re here to help you through that process. Rest assured that you have taken the first step towards being EMV compliant and that we have your order.

Unfortunately, the new mobile EMV readers are delayed; therefore we are providing you with a six-month extension on the October 1, 2015, EMV liability shift. Through March 31, 2016, we will assume the liability for counterfeit or stolen card-present fraud that occurs when you unknowingly process a counterfeit or stolen EMV chip card using your current magnetic stripe reader."



I had a feeling their chip reader would not be ready on time. Oh well, at least the liability shift is being pushed back for me too.


Any word on the other processors' chip readers, like Square or Amazon or PayPal?

The new theme looks great!

So far I've only been able to use my chip card at one retailer: Target. I do not need to enter a PIN at Target. I just insert my card into the chip reader, then remove it when the reader tells me to. So I'm not sure that PINs are going to be required.

In Topic: Look Mark! My Sponge Holder Prototypes

27 August 2015 - 10:42 AM

I am working on my own version of this. Not for holding a sponge (I have a genuine Mark C. sponge holder in my kitchen) but for holding business cards in my booth. My first attempt had cutouts with right angles, and it warped pretty bad. My second attempt has shorter and thicker walls. After reading this thread, I just noticed that the cutouts on Mark's version are rounded, not right angles. If my second attempt warps, my third attempt will have rounded cutouts.

My two cents ... I would publish the full posts on that opening page, rather than making visitors click once more to get a full post. I visited your site a few times before I clicked on one of your posts, because the first impression I got was "I don't time for an extra click right now, I'll have to come back later." At least publish the full post of the most recent post, then ask readers to click for the older posts.

Also, I would edit your photos more selectively, they seem a little repetitive. One or two photos per post will have the most impact.
