If there isn't a single winning micropayment system yet...
... it isn't for lack of trying.
Methinks that as soon as monies is involved the people supposed to make it work start to behave like greedy bastids, just like everyone else. Invariably at the cost of the customer.
Where's the simple anonymous payments that don't require yet another sackload --as for some reason it's never just *one*, not even google-- of verisign-trustable type third, fourth and fifth parties to make it work?
Or just something that makes every actor in the system a first-class citizen?
Or even something that doesn't involve Ts&Cs that the devil himself wouldn't want to read nevermind agree with? (hi paypal!)
In short, what is wrong with you people? Are you trying to solve a problem or to create more problems for your customers by erecting artificial barriers around your brand spanking newly created niche with fat margins and no competition?
