Great, AC. Since you apparently never received the check I sent last spring, I've doubled my "subscription" with the PayPal feature.

Thanks for doing this. I've been intending to drop a check in the mail but, ahemmm, never got around to it. This made it really easy. I encourage everyone to send in something. This is a great website and I've learned as much from these forums as I have from a bunch of the lessons, books and magazines I've purchased in my 2 seasons of skiing.

SnO Eagle, I've been trying to find out but with no success. You can alwasy just try it, either the card will be accepted or it will be rejected -- no harm either way.

I've just registered with a Visa Debit card without any obvious problems. You'll get the money when I get my membership number.

Earlier this year, I just posted AC a GBP cheque, which he was able to put in his account, I don't think it cost him much to convert. Not sure what way I'll donate the next time.

Sounds like the US is ahead of us. When I tried to cash a $35 cheque I was charged £7 to do so. Ouch.

The official answer is Yes, you can definitely use a debit card. I just heard back from PayPal.

Hi AC,

Good news, but I'm old fashioned. I don't give out my numbers on the net. There are too many people who've been victimized! I'll happily give you a check (or cash?!?!?) when I see you in Utah. Love this site!

Thanks for setting this up this way! You should see my contribution on you account next time you check.

No problem ziggyskier, but so that nobody gets the wrong impression -- PayPal is extremely safe & secure. It is a well established brand that does millions of credit card transactions a year, in fact it is owned by eBay and is the most common method of payment for their massive numbers of transactions.

If you make a credit card payment on PayPal, for up to 30 days later you can cancel it. They are very reliable. The data transferred to and from their web site is encrypted with military-strength encryption software, and if all that did not protect you enough, if you were ever the victim of fraud then your credit card company would reimburse you for the money and deal with it themselves (that is part of the service of major credit cards).

Therefore, there is no risk to using a credit card with PayPal. I just didn't want others to worry about this because it is not an issue.

Seems to have worked with a UK debit card (finally) - having taken the trouble to set up an international account now I need something else to spend money on...

What problems did you have Frances? I was about to do it when I clocked your post.
I assume the ammount is in dollars?

No real problems, just a bit slow. They verify your existence by charging $1.95 to your card; when that charge comes through on your statement it has a reference number which you need to activate the account. I can see this is a good way of stopping fraud but it's a bit tedious - even with online banking to see my statement instantly it took a week for the charge to appear. You get the $1.95 back eventually.

Yes, it's in dollars.
