Through One Month Stripe Payments, you will learn the easiest way to set up billing, payments, and subscriptions for web applications. You will also learn how to: implement Stripe into your site, build a web application in Ruby on Rails, send transactional emails with Sendgrid, and deploy applications with Heroku.
If you're reading this right now, you probably fall into one of two categories: You either have this awesome idea for a new SaaS product or you have a client who needs an ecommerce store built for them.
Both cases have the same basic need – you need the ability to accept online payments from your customers.
The problem (and you'll learn this soon if you haven't already) is that contacting banks and setting up merchant accounts is a huge hassle. You have to get approved. Then you need to actually deal with payment gateways to process people's payment info. Suddenly your amazing product idea feels like a deflated balloon and you never even got to release it into the world. That sucks.
It doesn't have to be like this.
When I first started coding, a good friend and mentor told me about Stripe and it changed my life.
I had a class that I was teaching in person and I wanted to teach it online, but I just didn't have a way for people to sign up and pay for the class. With Stripe, I was able to drop in a few lines of code (literally) and almost instantly I was able to process my students’ payments! Just like that!
I'm going to share something with you that I've never shared with anyone...
After my first month using Stripe, I made $19,450 (minus their 2.9% + $0.30 processing fee, similar to a bank or PayPal). Here's a picture of the transactions coming in:
So why am I sharing this stuff with you?
I was tired of hearing that I would never be able to build my own idea into a product because I didn't study Computer Science, and I was tired of waiting for a technical co-founder to build it for me. So I decided to learn how to code.
I was amazed at how easy it was to actually build something! So why can't most people learn? Because most of the resources suck and are written by developers for other developers, not for beginners. It was such an amazing feeling to be able to make my own idea come to life. And it was kind of nice to prove other people wrong.
I want to help you prove other people wrong.
So I reached out to my good friend Peter Bell (the guy that told me about Stripe) and asked him to put together a class. He said yes!
So, check out the class and our different enrollment options. And if you have any questions, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm super excited! Are you?
See you in there,
