    Hey there
    Alot of people who are younger then 16-18 don't have acces to their own credit card yet, nor are they allowed to use anyone else's. Or in my case, have a credit card, but that isn't compatible with what Paypal uses.
    As a result, the vast majority of those people use "paysafecards" to make purchases online. Basicly its a slip of paper with a PIN on it, that gives acces to 5-10-25-50-100€ payments online.

    Perhaps it could be possible to use this method and perhaps others that are simular and incorporate it into the donation system.
    I saw no other play to put this, and I figured it was infact a suggestion.
    Please don't kill me if I did put it in the wrong section.

    I believe the reason we use Paypal is for the reason that anyone can set it up and link it to a bank account and get going. Paypal has a API that krisk has worked with before and knows quite well, so making the donation system was a breeze. I'll read up on these paysafe cards over the weekend.

    Don't get me wrong smith, Paypal is THE most widely used method for donations, and cash transactions in general.
    However, as a european and more specificly, the west-european I.E Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and perhaps norway? all have Paysafecards. I've confirmed this myself as I know people in all those countries.
    And the main thing is, Paypall is great if you already have a bank account set up in place. And there are infact people who do not yet have a bank account or a credit card.
    That's what paysafe cards are, disposable one-use only "debit cards". A quick and very frequently used method.
    Major corporations, I.E Origin, Steam, Wargaming already incorporated the usage of paysafecards, and it is one of the primary non-paypall methods of which purchases are made.

    Again, the suggestion is to ADD this as another option next to the already existing paypall option.

    I really appreciate the fact you'll look into this mather Smithy, and for that I wholeheartedly thank you.

    I don't see why we couldn't add this option of payment for donations. I support it.
