We all love buying and selling online, that much is clear, but do you love it so much you want to make it even better? Etsy is joining forces with the cash-based payment network, Dwolla, for New York’s first-ever eCommerce Hack Day, going down August 4-5, 2012, at The Hatchery. What coding tricks do you have up your sleeve for improving the experience of exchange between merchants and their customers?

If you are a developer who wishes to attend, there’s a special prerequisite puzzle.
