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 ...

It's not common for a payment to be 'pending' for an extended period of time. I've not heard of the 'foreign' payment issue - but it doesn't matter what country a persons PayPal account is from, transactions should complete immediately unless there is an issue with the funding on their end. Common issues with 'funding' can be: Customer uses a suspicious ...

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.

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 ...
