Introduction

This is the entry point of the Taler demo. Follow the instructions and try Taler with the other pages linked below!

You can learn more about Taler on our main website.

Step 1: Install the Taler wallet

Install the wallet from the installation page. It only takes one click.

Step 2: Withdraw Digital Cash

Now you can withdraw digital cash into your wallet by going to our bank. In this demo you're paying with KUDOS, an imaginary currency. When you create an account at our bank, you'll get 100 KUDOS for free.

Step 3: Pay

We have two demo merchants where you can spend your coins:
  • The essay store, where you can pay KUDOS for individual chapters of Richard Stallman's book "Free Software, Free Society", which is also available for free at the FSF.
  • The project donation Web site, where you can show respect to a software project of your choice by giving them KUDOS.

Step 4: Check money flow

  • Check if people who received your Taler payment got eventually paid by the exchange via a wire transfer; visit the: public accounts page at the bank. Note that only those account whose owners gave permission are showed on that page.

Step 5: Merchant? Consult back-office

  • If you are a merchant, you can check the back-office Web-site to see how your Taler transactions got payed back by bank wire transfers.
