Hopefully the heading will capture someone's attention.
You have a glitch in your donation section. I have now tried to donate money SEVEN times with my Canadian Credit Card. The site will NOT let me without filling in info for PayPal... and I absolutely do not want anything to do with PayPal.

Trust me when I say I clicked on the correct payment option. This is a major problem for you and continuing donations if not fixed. PLEASE!!!!

Personally I think Paypal is safer than using a credit card.

That is not the point. I have simplified my life considerably and do not want something else to complicate it when all I want to do is make a donation.
It's a glitch and should be fixed.

I know and that's one of the reasons why I've tried it so many times on different occasions.

Thanks TR! I have another friend who is also passing on the information.
Being on a time out from TOB is hampering my connection with the correct people because I can't send or receive pm's either.

Hah! Really.

Ferret, she said they are having problems with Canadian credit cards. I am very happy to swing by your house and pick your donation up and take it to her. Tomorrow?

Thanks TR but I have someone else coming tomorrow that will get my donation to them... I will give her the money and she will make the donation (along with hers) via her paypal account. She was coming here anyway to pick up a Parmesan cheese grater.

This was the response she got from her contact...
"I am so very sorry but we have no other way to accept a Canadian credit card other than PayPal. We have tried but have not been able to find a way.

Apologies,
Carolyn "

On the subject of Parmesan cheese, I have been buying the real deal (to avoid the additives in other varieties) and cube it, bag it and put it in the freezer. I put the frozen cubes in my Parmesan cheese grater and it works better than using it on fresh cubes. I have two graters, so she's getting one of 'em.
Woohoo... more room in the drawer.

I got one of those email notices from PayPal about 4 months advising me of their "changes in service policy". I must have been bored because I actually read the changes.

Buried in the text was a notice that their charge for currency exchange in PayPal payments was rising to 8%. Did anyone else notice this?

You can set the currency to whatever you want. I haven't seen any 8% charge and I just took a paypal payment a couple of weeks ago.

I wasn't being clear.

The 8% was for your payment if its in a different currency from your account, say you're paying in USD out of a Canadian account.

Well this was from an Italian account. Maybe he got dinged the 8%. He didn't say anything about it. Or maybe that 8% is for business accounts? I use PayPal for almost everything I can but never received an email. I have used it to buy things off Mexican websites and it is connected to my Canadian bank.......strange.

You could look at it another way and say that the U.S. is using an inflated $1.35 dollar. Just depends on your point of view. Whatever....

I don't use PayPal because they've been hacked more than once. 'Nuff said?

Thanks to Rosa Venus and Trailrunner who offered help. My donation was just picked up by my friend who will use her PayPal account to get it to the Ranch.
