Video interview with HammerTap.com

Well since I am in sharing mood, and to continue what I started yesterday, I wanted to share with you the big amount of videos and photos that I have been saving for quite a while now.
Some of the videos (Started to collect dust 🙂 ) was taken back at eBay live, that includes almost every person that works for eBay or for a third party company, all the way to eBay current president John Donahoe (Coming here soon) and PayPal’s current president Scott Thomson as well (Take a look here at our YouTube previous videos) and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel on YouTube so you won’t miss any upcoming videos.
Today, I am sharing this video interview with Jen Cano, VP of Education for HammerTap, LLC.
Jen is HammerTap’s spokeswoman and is an eBay Certified Consultant as well, I personally met Jen at the PayPal developers scavenger hunt party she was a great help for our team (We won first place out of 28 teams) and she agreed on doing this interview.
Jen is also very well known on the eBay radio at wsradio.com for her weekly report and tips.

More videos to come soon 😉

ALL NEW: Paypal button factory

My good friend Damon Williams (one of the top developers at PayPal) have just announced the new PayPal button factory.
For those of you who don’t know what PayPal is, (I have a couple of videos and a couple of posts coming up soon) PayPal simply is a safe fast way to accept money online.
Before I go any further, I have to say that as I am writing this, this new improvement is only available to developers and will be available soon at PayPal.com, however, since I am a certified PayPal developer, I took a look at the new very useful enhancements on the new button factory, and I like it a lot (specially the first 2), here are the new option from Damon’s blog post:

– Multiple drop-down options per button (e.g., Size,
Color, etc), and we’ve removed the limit of having just two optional fields

– The ability to set price by options (e.g., $8 for
medium t-shirts and $10 for large)

– Inventory tracking and management capability

– Simple button customization (e.g., add credit card
logos, make a smaller size, etc.)

– The ability to track profits and margins by products

– Save commonly created buttons

– Easy-to-use encryption

– And much more…

I hope all of my fellow nerds like it.
