I have a patent pending on a way to digitaly use your credit or debit card. This is definantly the only way it can be done with the system we use today. If anybody knows where I can sell this I would appreciate it. I am broke, can't afford a prototype nor a major patent. Please e-mail me if you can help me out. ryanj_h@hotmail.com

What do you mean by "major" patent?
 
Has the application published?  What's the number?

No, it hasn't been published yet, I've had it since October. The application I sent in is a big mess. I pitched it to an investor once and he told me to brush it up. After I brushed the idea up, he stopped talking to me. I think he's waiting my patent pending out. Palm tried doing something similar to this but there system didn't work with the way debit and credit cards are used in stores. By major patents I mean applying for a non provisional application or getting international protection.

"By major patents I mean applying for a non provisional application"
 
In other words, you are talking about a provisional application that is not going to be published.

The only suggestion I have is the obvious one; develop a marketing approach, contact potential customers, and try to sell it before your provisional application expires.
 
Actually you probably have to sell it at least a month before the provisional app. expires, so that an experienced patent agent or attorney can rewrite the application.
