The director of product at Ripple, Craig DeWitt, has recently hinted at his interest in launching an XRP-powered e-commerce payment platform.
DeWitt made the proposed project known via his official Twitter handle a couple of hours ago.
DeWitt, who had launched projects that integrate XRP in the past, such as xSongs, said that the project under consideration will be designed in a way that will make the acceptance of XRP payments on their personal websites easy, using a simple code snippet.
“Considering launching an e-commerce payments platform using payburner, open to the world… the guts of xSongs already does this beautifully. Make it stupid simple to use so anyone can accept XRP payments in their personal sites with a simple code snippet.”

Back in December 2019, DeWitt released xSongs, a new digital market place that opens the door for musicians to trade their songs for the digital token XRP.
Upload of music is made free on the digital market place, giving musicians the right to all the revenues garnered from the sales of their contents, via Peer-to-Peer payments in XRP.
Moreover, xSongs also leverages Payburner, a payment system powered by XRP Ledger.
DeWitt’s tweet that hinted at the project under consideration also called the attention of a notable developer in the XRP community, Wietse Wind, the founder of XRP-based banking app Xumm.
Responding to the tweet Wind showcased readiness to offer his support. He wrote, “We could team up, doing payburner and Xumm implementations (enable one or both in a simple e-commerce platform specific admin module) at once? (We’re looking at WooCommerce and Shopify for the first plugins).”
Obviously, if the XRP-powered e-commerce payment platform under consideration could come to reality, it will serve as a big boost to the quest of increasing the usability of the digital token XRP.
DeWitt also noted in November 2019 that the short-term objective of the digital marketplace, xSongs, is not to make money but to drive significant value. Such could also be the case in the project under consideration.
