In the second of two articles, Nielsen Norman Group's Kate Meyer surveys minimalist web site implementations, pointing out that minimalist design does not always support business goals. Guidelines accompany overview of each point. "A favorite mantra of minimalist designers is, 'subtract it till it breaks,' which really means, 'unless the absence of an element would be serious problem, get rid of it.'"

"Control your payment solution. Manage all of your transactions in one place. Change your payment gateway. Manage subscriptions. Process single transactions. Spreedly provides flexibility." Used by Rose Park Roasters. On the other hand, I got to the Spreedly home page by way of an error message, and I've never been able to modify my Rose Park Roasters subscription unaided; so Spreedly has some weaknesses, or integrating it with one's own website is not always trivial.
