Elaborating on the last point:

""Pay now!" links to http://127.0.0.1:5678/pay?dest=XYZ&amount=5

This would open up a new website which would contain a form saying "Pay XYZ 5 bitcoins?" with accept and reject buttons. All completely integrated within the website, but connected to the application via the local http server. No need to expose the full JSON-RPC library, either, which could be dangerous."

This could be extended into an internet-public web interface, which you could access from any mobile phone or computer. The public interface would be sandboxed and restricted to a "web wallet", which would only contain those dollars you wanted to be public. This public interface could use dynamic DNS services (so you could have bitcoiner.bitcoinpayment.com which redirects the connection to your node).

Alternatively, you could place a few coins with a third-party in trust, but then you have to trust that they won't steal your coins.

This would be the second step, to allow you to access your wallet from anywhere without having to run a local bitcoin client. The first step mentioned in my previous post is even more important, in that it allows websites to seamlessly accept payment in bitcoin without copy/pasting.

I suggest we raise a bounty to get merchant tools such as this implemented.So who will code it and how much will it take?

I don't mind contributing to a bounty, especially to get the local HTTP server implemented (or another mechanism that allows website integration, but I prefer local HTTP server since it does not require plugins nor extensions).

I'm considering having a go at coding this for the bounty, I'm new to bitcoins and need a bit of initial cash to get me going Smiley

I have no idea what a reasonable bounty is to suggest, so someone else will have to suggest it for me - someone guesstimate how many bitcoins/hour a programmer is worth?

I don't have many Bitcoins yet, so it would have to be PayPal for me Wink

On odesk they range from $10 to $50 an hour.However it is better to pay for an outcome rather than by the hour.


You first need a general idea how difficult the desired code will be to implement.For non programmers it is a difficult thing to know!

You might be able to use mybitcoin for the online wallet part.You dont have to reinvent the wheel. Smiley
The ability to place a button on your website and specify what parameters it has such as one time payment,subscriptions and different payment amounts is what paypal offers.These buttons usually take you to paypals website where you pay and then are redirected back to the original page after checkout.

I can afford $100 if this gets implemented.

True. I'm thinking my first version will be a java servelet running locally which you'll be redirected to, and it can use the Json-Rpc to send coins fromyour local wallet (assuming you have bitcoin running). That shouldn't be too hard (although I'm no web designer, so it will look ugly until someone writes me some stylesheets Roll Eyes ), maybe a coupla days work to get designed, written and tested. I'm going to go away now and start work on it in fact Grin

I started a thread on my progress over here.

To reiterate what I said over there, I have most of the basics done. I now need to make it pretty, make it user friendly, and make the code somewhat neater. Then it's just a matter of packaging it up and finding some websites to start using it!
