中国公司如何使用Stripe

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Update: 如果需要申请Stripe Altas的朋友可以联系我(astonysh@gmail.com),如果项目靠谱的话我可以提供Stripe Altas的邀请码,Stripe会直接帮你申请Delaware的Incoperation和Silicon Valley Bank的银行账号。

现在有越来越多的中国公司开展海外业务,其中很重要的一个环节是如何有效率的收费,在这里介绍一些我的实践经验,希望对国内开展海外业务的公司有帮助。

收款方式有哪些?
我们做的不是移动业务,所以我不太了解针对移动业务的收费,我们做的是b2b的SaaS平台,所以这里介绍几种针对平台的海外收款方式:
Paypal: 国外客户基本都有,支付很快,但是缺点是不能包月自动扣费,手续费略高,要5%左右;
银行转账:最传统的付费方式,基本没有什么手续费,但缺点是到款时间长,不太适合与平台整合;
信用卡:信用卡支付是国外最流行的支付方式,支持自动扣费,便于与平台整合,收费普遍比Paypal要低。 (more…)

Undeclared

I like the way you hold your head
If your brother knew, he’d have my head
But I wouldn’t care if I was dead
If I had the chance to hold your hand
But my love goes undeclared
Yeah, my love goes undeclared
And my love goes undeclared
Yeah, my love goes undeclared

You let me stay here for a week
On your couch but I would rather sleep
In your bed, or even better yet
We could run away and never rest
But my love stays undeclared
Yeah, my love stays undeclared
Yeah, my love stays undeclared
Yeah, my love stays undeclared

You come to me out of a dream
And you run around like you just can’t be
’cause your mind is filled with fantasies
And it makes me laugh and it comforts me
But my love stays undeclared
Yeah, my love stays undeclared
Yeah, my love stays undeclared
Yeah, my love stays undeclared

You give me your insanity
But I think it might be vanity
’cause you want what you can’t have for free
And you don’t know what it means to me
So my love stays undeclared
Yeah, my love stays undeclared
Yeah, my love stays undeclared
Yeah, my love stays undeclared

昨天跟一个好朋友吃饭,他换了新工作,新工作是在银行拉存款,他说这工作其实就是给公司的财务回扣,让财务把钱存在他们那里,如果拉来2亿存款的话可以有24万/年的收入,他说这是行贿,但有很多办法可以避开监管,我的朋友明年就该有孩子了,感觉他现在压力很大;我有同学现在是城管,他跟我们说得城管的工作就是我们每天在网上骂的那些事儿。

我有一些美国朋友,其中一位去了一个NGO,去非洲做小额贷款,帮助那里的农民种地,一去要2年,工资很少,每年只有一次机会回家;另外一个朋友在北京的一个NGO,做环保相关的工作,之前娶了个中国媳妇,也有了孩子,现在北京租房住;还有一位澳大利亚的华裔,早前在北京的NGO做帮助青年成长,创业的工作,现在去美国读研了;还有一位朋友现在在美国政府做与中国环保相关的工作,之前抱怨说他的GRE成绩过期了,如果去读研的话还要再考。

再说说我,从我毕业以后我妈就总说谁谁谁有什么样的工作,挣多少钱,然后说我的工作怎么怎么不好,每次我说去同学聚会她都问我同学们现在混得是不是都比我好。

Ok,在我们的社会里,什么是衡量一个人的标准?是钱吗?如果是的话,我们是否在乎他的钱是如何来的?我们天天在网上骂这个社会,骂那些贪官,但如果现在有人给你很多很多钱让你做一件对你个人无害,但对社会有害的事儿,你会拒绝吗?在我们的社会里如果你当上了公务员,你有没有可能再去上学?如果一个社会里面的所有人做的事儿都只是为了自己那这个社会是不是永远不能进步?

I heard of that Linkin Park is coming to play in Beijing this year, but was so sad when I read this.
