Pain in the English
PainInTheEnglish.com is a marketplace for proofreaders. Customers can submit proofreading orders either by sharing their Google Docs or by uploading Microsoft Word files. Through Google Drive API, the system continually watches anyone sharing a Google Doc. As soon as one is shared, the system counts the number of words and quotes a price as a comment within the same Doc. The customer can then click on the link included in the comment to go to a checkout page to pay for the order. As soon as the payment is processed, an email notification is sent to the network of proofreaders. They can review the order and decide if they want to accept it. Once they finish proofreading, they come back to the site to submit their work which triggers a notification back to the customer.
