Last applocation within the "Week of LApps" presented
28 March 2018   188

Blockstream introduced the last application within the "Week of LApps" - Ifpaytt (If Pay Then That). Created on the basis of the IFTTT infrastructure (If This Then That), it is declared as a "companion" software for Paypercall, which allows you to configure a micropayment system without deep knowledge of programming.

It is noted that while Papercall is designed for professional Node.js developers, Ifpaytt allows to take advantage of the dynamic system of micropayments for not a pro coder.

Based on IFTTT, Ifpaytt uses the Lightning Charge and Paypercall functionality, allowing to create applets using combinations of triggers and actions. Payment of an invoice in the Lightning Network in this case becomes a trigger, and when it is triggered - a pre-programmed action is performed. The user just needs to create an IFTTT applet that connects them together. Detailed instructions can be found in the corresponding repository on GitHub.

From the client's point of view, the process will look exactly the same as when using Paypercall: when you navigate to the seller's URL, they will be provided with an account after payment which will give access to the service.
