    I really hate to see that "PayPal Donate" button on this site. Any "eBay" seller would know what I mean. See for yourself at www.paypalsucks.com. See the horror stories for yourself!

    Then send John a personal cheque. PM him for his address.

    Hmmm..... I won't deal with anyone on ebay who doesn't use paypal. I even build it into my favorite searches so I don't even see items by sellers who don't take it.

    I'm also far more likely to donate to a charity (or website) that takes paypal than one that wants my cc info.

    FWIW.

    PayPal does have problems when dealing with buyers and sellers. My wife has experienced them in the past. I hate PayPal because they make thepay for the loss.

    However, John has decided to use PayPal to "collect" donations. Unless a member decides to use a stolen credit card... John does not have to worry about any charge-backs and he is not really loosing anything.

    I think google checkout might be another option.

    The problem is, paypal works only for the fact that any other payment processor would require $400 up front for setting up the account and $50 a month for processing alone.

    I think PayPal is tailored for the buyer, not the seller. I'm very surprised to see that they even allow their button to be on this site. Especially with their anti-gun mentality!
