Update#4 - Proof of Concept service launched on the testnet! Check it out now www.lightningcollect.com/start

Hello!

We are kicking off a brand new Lightning Network powered payment service specialising in enabling effortless regular payments - Lightning Collect.

Regular payments are difficult using Bitcoin but they are essential for a huge number of real-world busines, charity and content creator use cases - so we're going to make them easy and available to any lightning enabled wallet. The service will support businesses, service providers, artists and content creators who want to collect funds without paying high fees associated with traditional providers like PayPal. We'll also deliver functionality for subscription based services to be built in the cryptocurrency ecosystem for the firs time, such as the popular donation website Patreon.

Alpha version is under development and we're very excited to confirm a December date for the testnet release!

Check it out here and sign up to the newsletter to join the test group and be in for a chance to win bitcoin prizes:  www.lightningcollect.com

Or, take a look at our introductory video here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwGyXmP0EAUZII9kPzia6bg

Please let us know if you have any feedback!

I just couldn't help myself, so signed up for updates. December testnet couldn't come sooner.

Video had an Irish accent, I'd say? Anyway, video isn't very different from most other payment processor "why use us". Was hoping to see more "why Bitcoin/LN" with Lightning Collect, actually, which only comes after 4 minutes. Really interested in how I could set myself up with all my existing clients, recurring payments especially. A lot of Bitcoin users like myself really waiting in the wings for something simple and straightforward to use. So if this is what the website says: something integrated into any wallet - then I'm all ears.

Hopefully, you're looking at setting up a guide with Electrum for the very early Q1 release! All signed up, waiting to hear.

Hi,

We've been working hard on the service and the more we look into it, the more excited I get that this could bring a lot of non-crypto companies into the Bitcoin space!

We'll be releasing our next development update shortly but I wanted to share the screenshot of our new App to wet the apatite! We're still on track to have the proof of concept product available in December and which point some volunteers will be required to help with testing. Testers will be in for the chance to win some crypto goodies as well as helping to raise money for a deserving charity. So, make sure to sign up for the newsletters at www.lightningcollect.com to have a chance of taking part.



Thanks,
Ross.

The merchants won't really care if it's the Lightning network. For them, it's just another bitcoin payment application which can be incorporated in their legacy systems. Try to address the issues created by services like BitPay and others since you're already in the development phase. There is a huge potential in the market for easy-to-use payment systems, unfortunately, bitpay is a huge disappointment.

Thanks for the feedback Patatas. Yeah, we're not going to be pushing the Lightning Network aspect of the service too hard when selling the product to businesses or people wanting to collect funds. While we're in development we'll probably continue to discuss it as there's a great buzz about the technology. It's more important for us to open up new use-cases by allowing companies and content creators to collect regular payments with minimal fuss.

First demo of the regular payment functionality from a user (payer) and beneficiary (collector) point of view! This is the simplest form of regular payment which can be set up and shared in just a few minutes. Perfect for content creators, charities and artists.

We'll be performing some testing in the next few weeks and we're looking for some volunteers to help out. Should take about 15-20 minutes of your time and you'll have a chance to win £50 in Bitcoin. Follow us on Twitter or sign up for our newsletter to be in for a chance.

We have some exciting news to share. The proof-of-concept mobile app and website are now available on the testnet for everyone to checkout!

Today's launch includes:
  • the ability for anyone to begin collecting funds using our web portal
  • make regular payments and donations using our Lightning Network enabled mobile app
  • a demonstration website showing how easy it is to integrate Lightning Collect into existing e-commerce systems

In completing the proof of concept, we have taken a big step forward towards our goal of building a reliable, open regular payment service for Bitcoin.

Start sending and receiving regular Bitcoin payments for free - https://lightningcollect.com/start/
