Setting up a Webshop that accepts lightning payments via lightning charge. Seeking brave alpha tester

Hey everyone,
after the big news yesterday that lightning charge by the elements group is out I am helping my fiancee's sister who is running a medium sized webshop for a living to add bitcoin as a form of payment. She is very happy to do so and promised to HODL all revenue made via Bitcoins (sorry I have to brag that she must have great influence (; ). However her product is rather cheap (only a few bucks) so without lightning it didn't make sense to accept bitcoin because fees would have been higher that the price for the product.
After the great help and suggestions by cdecker on the IRC yesterday and today (kudos and shoutout to him!) I knew the roadmap: * I set up a virtual machine on amazon elastic cloud (actually a friend did this who is doing this on a regular basis. Thanks Heinrich!) * We set up my very first bitcoin node (bitcoin core 0.15 which worked pretty easy! Amzing good processes and workflows) * We set up my very first lighting node. (which also turned out to be pretty straight forward) * We had everything on testnet and I am currently running on mainnet (however bitcoind is still downloading and verifying the blockchain)
We have several problems though at the last step in which case the needed technology stack is kind of out of our comfort zone: 1. I can't set up lightning charge following this tutorial: https://github.com/ElementsProject/lightning-charge (I know it's ridiculous but I am not living in the javascript / node.js world, so I am having problems with user rights when running npm. If anyone would be willing to have a look (maybe via skype screenshare session it would be great!) 2. I currently don't have any hot wallet coins on the bitcoin node since this is my very first node and I am kind of afraid to transfer my funds. As far as I understand, I do not really need bitcoins myself to fund lightning channels as long as the other lightning nodes open and fund the channels (which is the preferred way anyway, since a webshop is obviously only accepting BTC and has basically only incoming payments over the long turn). Anyway I would need some brave people who are running lightning nodes that would hook me up to the lightning mainet by funding some channels with me. obviously there is little risk involved since I can't steel or access the funds as long as nobody is really buying products in the webshop and paying with bitcoin. 3. the blockchain needes really a lot of time to download and verify. That makes sense if all the merkle trees need to be calculated for every block. Is there a better way to skip veryfication? Or ist that such a security risk that I just have to wait?
./lighting-cli getinfo: { "id" : "020bcf913931fe5fb96931c9be470bbdccd1b24eaa5a0758dbf7efc45bedcb1ebe", "port" : 9735, "address" : 35.158.17.37 , "version" : "v0.5.2-2016-11-21-1574-g575b733", "blockheight" : 331274 }
the bitcoin address of that corresponding wallet reads: 36DqbzCRcXeHbUG6C9jjxMghmuCHZg9BRn but as far as I understand that is not needed for channel creation.
Disclaimer: She and I do understand that lightning on mainnet is highly experimental. However her product is basically digital so in case something goes wrong she could still satisfy the consumers but just has to give up the lost revenue. In that sense she and I are willing to take the risk of setting up this prototypical real world application to demonstrate from a real user the usefulness of the lighting network and lightning charge.
happy to hear from u and receive some PMs or other input!
best Rene
