From WESTAF –
Zapplication.org recently announced a mobile-responsive artist side. With a planned release in late summer, the enhancement will allow artists to take ZAPP with them on the go. Artists will be able to easily apply to events, check their application statuses, and even buy booths from their phone or tablet. In other ZAPP news, the team recently completed the switch to a new payment processor, Braintree, an e-commerce solution acquired by PayPal in 2013. Braintree specializes in mobile and web payment systems, and integrating Braintree means that ZAPP can now collect payments from a variety of methods, including Apple Pay and Venmo, in addition to more traditional methods such as PayPal and credit card. This integration also allows artists to store payment options for a quicker checkout experience.
