Gunpal is the payment alternative to the anti-gun one, right? Weren't you going to do an auction site too?

BTW, not to put the cart before the horse (or equivalent phrase involving guns) but do you plan on having Quicken support/account linking?

How does one do a beta test of something like this? Without a lot of accounts sending money back and forth how do you do any real testing?

Curiousity.

Congrats Ben. I hope you make $$$$$$$ with this.

I've been on the beta list for over a year, and got an email this morning. I just signed up, looks pretty good. I'm really looking forward to buying gun related stuff and skipping the USPS MO and the extra time that takes. Screw Paypal!!!

Now we just need a "Gunpal Donation" link on the CGF website.

I tried to read the user agreement. It gave me a headache.

Are there any merchants actually accepting it now?

Curiousity.
The beta is a production-ready site using real money. We're only limiting the userbase to control initial volume and watch things carefully - we've been testing in-house with real money for months now.

Gives me one too. Lawyers and finance in 2009 :P Basically, we're similar to other payment sites I shall not name with fewer restrictions and 10 basis points cheaper at 2.8%

Yes but since we're not out of beta yet there's not much to do.

The good news is that it could be a matter of days when we open this up to the world!

Signed up and made a small donation to CG (and had them benefit from it, two for one!). Still pending, we'll see how it goes.

I guess my point is more along the lines of what good does it do me to sign up if there is no place to use it?
