Seems the move will make it easier for both the project creators and supports to process the payments. Seems to be a good move all around, now if they would only allow the processing of PayPal payments; I would be a happy camper!

      Very good observation. Time will tell. I disliked having to log into Amazon to process a payment, but that is just. me. Even to this day I rarely use Amazon for much.



  2. STILL won’t take PayPal? Jeez…

      Not as of that most recent press release. I am hoping in time they will look at PayPal as a viable option for paying for projects.
