Display stats details in public pages with Post Pay Counter PRO shortcode

IPSC 2014: Imagination is more important than knowledge

From 12th to 17th May I took part in the International Public Speaking Competition (IPSC) 2014 in London, representing my country, Italy. The topic was Imagination is more important than knowledge, and the title of my speech, which follows, was The largest dancing floor.

THE LARGEST DANCING FLOOR

What I propose today is a journey. A journey with our imagination, through physics, to disclose a picture of the world far more appreciable than the one we usually have.

Have you ever thought about how fake the reality we see is? Looking around us, we see all kinds of different things.

Google Analytics setup and configuration with Post Pay Counter PRO

Post Pay Counter PRO allows you to pay your writers on WordPress basing on how many Google Analytics visits their posts logged. This tutorial shows how to set it up.

Note: Post Pay Counter PRO does not keep track of Analytics visits, it can only use them to compute the payments. For the tracking you will need something like Google Analytics for WordPress.

First thing to look for is the Google Analytics Settings box. Every section is explained quite in detail, but what is important is that you go through these settings before going on with the setup. They are already set up in a standard and usually-fine way, but if you do want to change them, you should do that before anything else. Don’t forget to hit the Save options button when you are done.

PayPal setup and configuration with Post Pay Counter PRO

With version 1.3, Post Pay Counter PRO introduced PayPal payments. This means that Post Pay Counter PRO does not only computes payments on your WordPress blog, but it allows you to pay your writers without having to manually head to PayPal’s website and enter the amounts and emails. Up to 6 users can be paid at a time, each transaction needs to be explicitly authorized before it is completed (works just like a Checkout page), currency conversion is supported and it is possible to choose whom pays the PayPal fees, either the admin (sender) or the users (receivers). The plugin works with the Adaptive Payments API, if you ever wanted to know.
