    Hey Jim. Congratulations on your RED Reservation last time around! I like the "R" avatar you've got there too!

    I don't think that I would say that Credit Card processing is a challenge for Red, simply that it will take a few more days. Moreover, the amount of testing that goes into software development when it's unleashed on the scale of RED must also be considered. This is not a small project :-)

I'm sure it's a bit more tricky for a larger company... but still... getting a CC system in play should be child's play compared to getting the actual camera made... :)
    Yes. No question about it. Getting the camera made is where the real action is at. Additionally, with the current state of the Internet, a ton of work goes into fraud prevention. Online fraud has skyrocked in the last 3 years and as a result there's a lot of extra work that we're all doing to minimize that fraud. We all pay for that fraud in longer lead times, more defensive application development and once in a while get stuck using our 2nd choice credit card processor for a few extra days...

    So does that mean that people can pay the remaining about for their reservation through PayPal when their camera ships?

    Payment processing is all about doing what's best for our customers. For a lot of people, PayPal is a great way to pay, especially if it's connected in to your bank account. Don't forget though. Everything at RED is under development. Everything is subject to change.

    If there is anything else you would like to see to help make payment processing happen more smoothly please let me know.

    Thanks Ryan, I appreciate your cheery attitude... no one is ever very happy with "the money guy".

    I don't have a dog in this fight, so to speak, other than throughout 2007 you'll be getting $30,000+ from me. This assures that I will give you at LEAST the amount of scrutiny and crits that I give, say, the motor company I bought my car from.

    I cut little slack for you guys in this area. Setting up for e-commerce is easy to do today. If it takes a little longer to get all the ducks in a row, then you do it. If you need to hire an outside company for a few grand to set you up and do Q&A, mock registrations, etc. then you do it. You don't open until it's ready. You simply don't mess with people's money, or create a sense of un-ease.

    You're right, RED, as a concept, is not a small project. But it IS from an e-commerce point of view. You're selling (currently) A.) decals/stickers B.) reservations. And with this batch of reservations, you don't even have to ship a physical product back to the customer...

    Regards,
    Jim Arthurs

    Hi guys,

    Just talked to Kelly and I have been taken care of concerning my reservations for the lenses. Kelly rocks! Ryan, she is going to shoot you an e-mail about my place in line and the specifics. I just want to thank you both for taking the worry out of the process for me and following through with everything you said.

    Cheers Guys,

    Andrew

    I just got the confirmation for mine as well. I got a friend to do it for me and he had no problems at all.
