How does this application allow entering a credit card and how does it charge? Does Apple take 30%?

@jpmiller03 I don't think Apple allow you to accept payments in any other way than the one they provide so unless i am wrong they will be taking 30%.

@itsnblackburn Thanks! I just have never seen a credit card entry form in an iOS app - usually it's an in-app purchase sort of deal, so it might be a detractor for users as far as trusting the system.

@jpmiller03 I'm one of Motivatr's founders. This is a great question and our payment processing was a bit of a doozy to get approved. Apple requested that we use their payment system however they do not have the ability to hold the cash during a challenge. We got an exception to use Stripe to handle payment processing. There is no transaction conducted until the challenge fails. This is essentially the same payment processing you'd see on a secure web application which saves your CC info. Stripe handles all of the security for us - we don't store anything except the user's Stripe ID on our end.

@alex_mejias Thanks Alex! I think this is a problem that many people have tried to solve and you and your team are onto something here - and that exception to use Stripe is probably a huge advantage! Congrats on the launch!
