Step 1: Install the Taler wallet
Install the wallet from the installation page.
Installation only takes one click.
After installation, you may be asked to grant the browser-based Taler wallet additional optional permissions that allow it to improve your user experience.
These permissions will allow the wallet to automatically open if a page asks for a Taler payment.
Regardless of the permissions you grant, the wallet will never transmit information about you or your browsing history to anyone.
Step 2: Withdraw coins
In this demo you are paying with KUDOS, an imaginary currency.
To withdraw KUDOS coins you must first create an account at our bank.
Signing up only requires you to pick a username and password.
When you create an account at our bank, you will be credited 100 KUDOS for signing up.
Afterwards, use the bank's Web interface to authorize the transfer of KUDOS to your wallet.
Once you have completed this step, you can click on the Taler icon in your browser to check your balance.
Step 3: Pay
We have two demo merchants where you can spend your coins:
At the essay store you can pay in KUDOS for individual chapters of Richard Stallman's book "Free Software, Free Society".
The book is also available for free at the FSF.
At the project donation website you can show respect to a software project of your choice by donating KUDOS to them.
Step 4: Check money flow
You can see the wire transfers from the escrow account of the exchange to the merchants on the public accounts page of the bank.
Note that only accounts configured to be publicly viewable are shown on that page.
Step 5: Survey
Websites can give rewards to visitors for completing tasks.
You can earn some KUDOS coins by filling in our survey.
