It will be interesting to see what the Cydia Store developes into. However, I think they should have chosen PayPal as a Payment source and simplfied the account creation process. For example, create an account in Cydia with your username, full name, address, e-mail and then link it to PayPal. Your Cydia address must match your PayPal's address.
PayPal requires verified addresses which are linked to a checking or savings account. This is very secure and established who the person is by linking the person to a bank account for verification. You can still pay by a credit card.
In all my years of purchasing things on eBay, I have never had my credit information stolen. The other benifit of PayPal is that your credit card information or bank information is not sent to the seller.
Cydia should remember your account and the link to PayPal but not the password. So, all you have to do each time you purchase software in Cydia is to enter your password.

You think that these developers should work for hours and hours on a project, to give arseholes like you something for free?
So what if its just a small mod, it still would have taken a lot of work to make and perfect. Besides as he said, its a trial run to work out any bugs in the buying process, and he's going to make future things like this free to please scumbags like you.
Now I'm no developer, so I have nothing to gain from this, but things like SBsettings, cycorder, Winterboard, have all made the iphone TEN TIMES BETTER than a non-jailbroken phone. Sure, some developers make apps for fun in their free time and release them for free. But for someone like Saurik who does so much and spends so much of his life to makes our phones as good as they are today, and wankers complain when he TRIES TO MAKE A FEW DOLLARS.
Grr. Sorry if thats an over-reaction, but I really hate you people who think just because its on Cydia and not an official Apple endorsed app, it should be free.
Just remember how **** your iphone is without these mods. And if you dont like paying, spend a few years learning how to code, and then spend a few weeks of your life coding it yourself.

i tried twice... both failed on amazon due to some "vendor doesn't allow that transaction" message, and i can't do again due to the issue reported in post #1:
If you've had a failed payment (such as, a credit card decline) you will need to be patient since Saurik has not coded in support for that yet.

It sounds about as fun as jailbreaking 1.0.2 via command line. Yesterdays minor write up about this was very neutral and fair from me, THIS process is just painful to imagine.
I just grabbed 3 free apps and one $1 app from the Apple store on a click and it was in my phone and I had been playing with it for SEVEN minutes if I started ten minutes ago. Not the same apps of course, but a much better user experience. That is the one thing Apple has always been about ....... "the Apple experience". Jailbreaking has never been "easy", but we tolerated it because we didn't have to fork over cash for it. The point to that statement is that it's either got to be free and a hassle, or paid and easy..... it can't be both bad's and be tolerable.

well all i ask is that people only charge for apps and things of use not for themes and widgets and adding pics to things like note, plus all that would be such a drag if we actually had to pay for a theme it just ruins the whole point of having a jailbrokin phone, really having to pay a dollar for a backround or a wallpaper, changing the buttons or batteries or all that other stuff man that would suck if it gets to that. i just might have to support apple in its fight cuz then things in the jailbreaking community would just get way to outta hand thats my 2 cents

Look, if it speeds up and resembles an Apple experience one click motion (2 at the most) then sure I'm down to try it again.

That rocked. Not long at all to actually pay for it. I'm really looking forward to some other GOOD stuff coming out on the Cydia Store. I buy on the App Store, but I really think the best stuff out there is still to be made.
xGPS really polished up? Hells yeah, I'd pay for it!
Thanks, Saurik and MMi

I'm gonna buy Cyntact asap. It looks like it completely worth it. Hay, it's just a buck. What's there to lose? I hope that the other apps that will be Cydia Store apps will be worth it.

I was just addressing the people who got offended by my post about how I wanted everything for free, they got so angry it was like they were PMS'ing
