DogePal, a decentralized simplified payment system built on the Dogecoin blockchain, has recently added new features to its platform.
Customized Invoices and Text Notifications for DogePal Users
The updated version of DogePal that was released on December 23 includes some handy perks that optimize DOGE transactions.
DogePal users are now able to quickly create customized invoices, and provide buyers with all the necessary details to complete their payments within seconds.
DogePal’s invoice toolkit allows vendors to choose between revealing their identity or remaining anonymous, and to optionally add details about the description of the transaction, the amount to be paid in DOGE coins, and the email of the customer.
Once the invoice has been created, it becomes permanent and the user can either print it as a hard copy or save it as an image.
DogePal invoices provide several payment methods, accessible to everyone, regardless if they are registered users or not.
The easiest way for buyers to complete payments is to visit the company website to input the unique 7-digit alphanumeric code DogePal generates for each transaction automatically.
Alternatively, they can scan a QR code or follow a DogePal weblink which redirects them to a payment webpage.
The Dogecoin blockchain ensures that transactions are processed in as low as 20 seconds and DogePal notifies users about the successful completion of payments via text message notifications.
The platform also allows users to create different types of invoices, suitable for their needs.
For example, a coffee shop owner could eliminate congestion on the counters during peak hours, by printing out QR codes with fixed prices for each product — this way customers could order and pay for their coffee from their tables instantly, without the need for waiting in queues.
Similarly, a freelance worker could create an invoice billing his employer, by adjusting the payment amount in respect to his worked hours.
DogePal Brings Blockchain Technology to the Average User
By introducing a friendly graphical user interface, DogePal aims to bring distributed ledger technology closer to real life use applications.
It enables easy daily micro-payments for the average user, removing all the complexities associated with blockchain transactions.
In essence, DogePal has followed the recipe of other payment processors like Paypal, but enables users to preserve their rights for sovereignty over their money, by utilizing all the benefits blockchain technology has to offer.
In an interview, last November, its creator Tom Carbon, told [blokt] that maintaining DogePal as decentralized as possible is his main priority.
The path towards mainstream adoption is not going to be easy, but the team is ready to embrace and resolve every scaling issue they will face in the years to come.
