RE: SteemWallet 1.1.0 - major updates! - In-App Payment (1-click to buy) Account Creation, Themes, Api-node switcher, Multicurrency support and bugfixes.
Nice! I’m updating the app right now!
Are the new accounts created with any SP or leased SP delegation?
Are there sufficient RC to do anything?
Posted using Partiko iOS
No delegation on the account I just created. I was able to resteem and still have some Rc's left.
The accounts are created by paying the 3 Steem for creation, but there is no SP delegated or additionally given. Can be nice to do. I will look into this. Although officially it would be out of apple bounds as they don't want to offer crypto purchases through in app payments.
Yes there is a little bit of RC with every new account. You can do 2 comments and some other transactions.
Have you heard about @steem.ninja? There you pay $2.5USD, get a Steem account AND a 15 SP delegation for 90 days on top. Check it out: Steem.Ninja There is also a referral program that pays you $0.5USD for every account sold with your ref link :)
Read @exyle's post about it here: https://steemit.com/exyle/@exyle/a-steem-account-for-only-usd2-with-creditcard-with-15-sp-delegation-thanks-to-oracle-d
Yes Steem.Ninja is great! We hope to lower the price also in the future, however we are also bound by the fact that the appstores account 33% markup-fee :(
We just want to offer the 1-stop shop for being a wallet and also be able to offer account-creation!
From my research about stripe I know that they take 30cents + 2.9% of every transaction. They probably not even make profit. Have you though about just implementing steem.ninja? With their referral program you earn with every sold account :D
Thanks for your comments.
Please understand, first off this update to the app was already done on 26th of December. Then there was no Steem.nInja yet. Unfortunately the app had been stuck in review with Apple for almost a month.
With apple (and google) it is unfortunately required that when selling digital consumable products, such as account creation is, that you have to use their In App Purchase feature and are not allowed even to link to alternative (e.g. creditcard) payment options external to the app, from within the app.
On the other hand, there is also a benefit. It literally is tap-tap and done, no need for creditcard data exchange. And in the appstore it literally is everyone already having payment setup.
That said, this was never about making money. But a service towards completely onboarding users.
I will see with steem.ninja if we can exchange 'account creation' as they use their oracle-d delegation for creation of accounts and if they have a surplus of free claimable accounts I could maybe help get rid of them, meaning it wouldnt cost me 3 Steem to create and can then lower the price. But those are big "ifs"
Hi :) I understand how easy it is. However the accounts come with 0SP. So you need to buy a delegation somewhere on top. If Steem.Ninja uses claimed accounts I think they could sell them for 0.50$ (minimum that you have to charge with stripe)
I appreciate your easy wait of account creation but with 0SP the accounts are not really useable as they run out of RC super quick.
