AST goes live w/ soft launch

Hey guys and girls,

We flipped the switch today from the development environment to the "live" one and encountered some unforeseen issues w/ express checkout on the site. But, we are trying to introduce folks to the concept.

We've produced this video to show how to post a tool to lend to others through Automotive Specialty Tool.

We are trying to build up the tools database with those tools which you'd like to lend and on which you'd like to make money...

Let us know what you think! We're working furiously to correct this Paypal issue, but we think you'll find the site quite intriguing!

So we have figured out the Paypal issue... It wasn't our math that was wrong... What was it, you ask?? Paypal implemented a new fee structure that charges us, the merchant, for issuing full refunds to borrowers when lenders decide they don't want to lend a tool out after a rental payment has been paid. In an effort to keep the site free for lenders and free for borrowers if their rental transactions get disapproved by lenders, we are examining alternative payment processing vendors. We are working tirelessly to resolve this issue, BUT the site is STILL ABSOLUTELY FREE to lenders. You can post tools up there and forget about them until you get emails from our site letting you know that borrowers are interested.

We are also very interested in what you guys think of the site's layout, the information available, feature requests, etc. Please do not hesitate to contact us as we'd like this to be a real DIY resource for everyone.

The door's always open.
