The Tech Behind the Magic: Used Technologies

Tackling Challenges Head-On: Problems and Solutions

Creating the Marketplace page emerged as our most significant challenge during Zipistream's development. This crucial page showcases campaigns for podcasters to gather leads and earn through PayPal. To conquer this, we set up a Google Sheet document to collect campaign data at regular intervals, feeding it into the database. Additionally, we designed a wallet page for podcasters to track their earnings.
