What makes a great ILance tutorial?

So you have a killer idea?

Best practice is wanting to write a tutorial with a great idea. Your tutorial should be something you know about and feel confident to provide your input, opinion and advice toward the final product. This could include everything from screen shots, videos, custom graphics and great content overall.

Subjects that work best are specific. An example could be a tutorial on "How to use all configuration settings in ILance" is far too general. However, a tutorial on "How to integrate PayPal IPN to send a second email to admin" would be a great tutorial to write.

Tutorials are community driven articles and is meant to be improved and kept up to date naturally by the community and authors alike.

What is a recurring payment?

A recurring payment is a payment for an item or service which is on-going for the duration term. If a product or service has a 1 year duration term this means every year a payment will be charged to the originating payment source for said products or services. Some products and/or services available on the ILance web site may require a recurring payment subscription using a valid credit card.

If for example you are renewing your licenses but also decide to add web hosting service to your order would require that the payment for the entire purchase order be made using a credit card.
