The Problem with all Payment Providers

Ian Wootten
Ian Wootten
Hi there,
These last two weeks I’ve seen multiple articles asking how to correctly collect VAT as a Software as a Service business. For myself in the UK, none of the solutions I’ve seen so far feels right - you either lose flexibility by allowing a third party provider to sell your software on your behalf or take on a hugely complex burden of international tax collection yourself. I compared the features of a number of payment providers last month on my blog which has proven to be really popular.
In other exciting news - I’ve bought a new M1 Mac Mini. The machine has had a few quirks so far, which is understandable given the architecture differences. In the main, it’s mostly the same as my old mac mini, only a lot faster and a decade younger. I’m documenting and recording my experience with it as a developer, so you’ll hear about it if you follow me anywhere on the web.
Thanks again for being a subscriber - If you have any comments or suggestions for future issues, please feel free to reply to let me know.
As always, keep on shipping!

I love this take on why you shouldn’t be putting your life on hold for open source projects. My kids are the best creations I’ve ever made.
