Decouple offer currency and payment currency. #157
Offers made in US$, can only be paid in US$, using Paypal.
This means that FS doesn't support BTC as a payment method for offers in US$.
There's no reason for this limitation to exist.
A mocked, but somewhat functional payment screen is available at:
This is supposed to be a payment screen for a US$ 20,00 offer that has been claimed to be solved by two programmers.
On this screen, the sponsor can select on which currency to pay.
Any feedback is appretiated!
I'd love that too. This improvement is a step in that direction but it doesn't get us there yet.
It will let you pay in Bitcoins - as long the programmer accepts them (meaning: the programmer must have filled a bitcoin address on their profile page).
This new screen tries to make this clear when you select "Bitcoin" on "Select currency to pay" (did you see the "Heads up" popover balloon?). It also enforces the "programmers' accepted currencies" constraints.
The perfect scenario is the one where you'd pay in Bitcoins, and the programmer would receive in US$ (if so desired). We're just not there - yet.
