where is the best place to get a logo designed?
Designer or brands and interfaces 🕶

A friendly designer of course ;)

Although the logo seems important, it is the whole of the brand that is the most powerful. Typography, color, photography, illustrations/icons.
A well designed logo can combine these visuals, the feeling of a brand, in 1 easy to recognize element.

And with that whole a designer can help out.

How do You deal with Taken social network names?

Not. Try another one.
I tried a few times to contact Twitter support because an account was not active and I wanted to use that user name. But never heard from them.

Maker of things on the internet

Does anyone know what better options are there than Paypal for a marketplace platform for Intl?

Do you mean services like (

Hey Patrick! Nope, something more like a payment provider or gateway that I could use. Paypal's taking a 2 cut commission from me like so:

1) When the buyer pays me the product's price on my platform
2) When I transfer my sellers their earnings for selling their products on my platform

That leaves me in a position where I am not able to make any money and I'm essentially running the platform at a loss (hosting, domains, emails and marketing all costs money)
