I imagine that if economic embargoes/sanctions were to be enforced over the internet, it wouldn't be enforced at the website level. Think about how impractical it would be to require every webmaster out there to keep an updated list of embargoed countries and have to block all visitors from that country. And it's not like a North Korean internet user has a ...

You should look at the Akeeba products (of AkeebaBackup fame). They include AkeebaSubscriptions (for Subscriber Access) and Akeeba Release System (for managed downloads) we use them on several sites for clients and our product websites. They are free, well documented and after reading easy to setup.

From http://www.ico.gov.uk/for_organisations/privacy_and_electronic_communications/opt_in_out.aspx If you provide a clear and prominent message along the following lines, the fact that a suitably prominent opt-out box has not been ticked may help establish that consent has been given. For example: 'By submitting this registration form, you ...

Allowing people to pay with their preferred currency should offer you higher conversion rates as anything that makes the user's experience easier typically increases conversion rates. However, offering too many options can have the opposite effect as users can feel overwhelmed and/or be confused by their options and abandon the payment process altogether. A ...

In the UK you can set this to be opt in. @Nick has a really good point about people that subscribe accidentally telling some third party that your emails are SPAM and your email rating going down accordingly. There are ways to mitigate against this: send 'circulars' out of a .info version of your domain and do it through a single inbox on 123-reg.com using ...

In the UK, you should use opt-in by default. You can only use opt-out to send unsolicited mail in specific circumstances. From the ICO's "Rules on email marketing" PDF: Opt-out is where you are told that you will get marketing unless you say you don’t want them. Organisations can collect only your email address on an opt-out basis if they can ...

Yes, you can send email without prefixing some ones name. This doesn't typically account as spam but, it really does come down to the rules of the spam filters! So, treat my "Yes" tentatively. I send many emails to friends and typically don't start it with a Dear Matt or Hi Sara etc and they get the mail fine. However, according to legislation (and I've ...

You should do a split test and see how many are subscribing if you do/don't require their name too. Having their name makes them more likely to read the email because it's addressed directly to them and it doesn't look like spam. I don't believe the spam filter relies on that.

There are lots of carts and scripts that will assist with subscription management but the more important component to this is your payment gateway. What you really want is a gateway that supports automated recurring billing (ARB) and then look for scripts that specifically support that gateway and also create ARB transactions. With ARB, you don't worry as ...

MagCloud is a print-on-demand magazine service from HP that lets you offer digital versions of your issues. There's a potential problem in that they seem primarily focused on the print side, and it's unclear to me from their basic information if you can offer the digital versions only. You should be able to determine that quickly while evaluating.
