  • 13. Kachingle/PayPal
    Relationship
    Working closely with Osama Bedier, the Senior VP of Platform and Product Development and his team
    Working on three initiatives:
    Cost effective fee structures for micropayments
    Resolving issues with the subscription product
    Partnering on marketing initiatives to rapidly grow the volunteer social micropayment market which benefits both of us

  • 14. Cost Effective
    Micropayment Fees
    PayPal will be a major player in the micropayment space, and is partnering with companies like Kachingle to help them get there
    Challenge: credit card companies charge $0.29+2.9%, which is fine for transactions greater than $15. But at $5 and $10, the percents are high (9% and 6%, respectively)
    PayPal VERY committed to solving this. They have reduced their pay-out fees for us and are working on reducing the pay-in fees, enabling us to drop our total take from 20% down to 15%.

  • 15. Resolving Subscription
    Issues
    Subscriptions are critical to Kachingle’s strategy because people will not manually add money to their Kachingle account. It has to be “set it and forget it”.
    Subscriptions require credit cards in some markets that don’t use credit cards, and PayPal accounts in some markets where people want to pay directly with credit cards.
    PayPal working with us to make the product more flexible to fit the needs of the market.

  • 16. Co-Marketing Initiatives
    PayPal is a dominant player in macro-payments, and is leading the charge in micropayments. Kachingle is helping PayPal to understand the market and its requirements.
    PayPal has a massive base of digital content providers that can benefit from having a Kachingle revenue stream.
    PayPal is helping to create the voluntary social micropayment market by giving Kachingle access to its digital content providers, and featuring us at their Fall X developers conference, as well as in an upcoming newsletter to their customer base.
