Alternative to PayPal?

I want to become a paying member and support the Forum. However I do not and will not use PayPal. Is there an alternative?

Thanks!

Hi GoldensGirl - just curious - why won't you use PayPal? I have set it up to handle on-line payments for meeting registrations for several scientific organizations I am member & webmaster of and never had a problem with the secure transactions?

Just think of me as an old and cranky computer geek who says NO. I used PayPal once and have been spammed ever since.

If I have to deal with PayPal to support the GRF then I'll remain a non-paying member, but I'd happily send a check or money order instead.

Ahhh okay. Hopefully you can get a person & address to snail mail a check. They should see your posting I would hope.

Hi,

You do not need to have a PAYPAL account to use PAYPAL. There should be an option for you in the payment screen to pay with your credit card.

There isn't one. Unless by clicking on the pay by paypal button you get taken to another screen where you have more options.

Otherwise, I was going to say that if people feel uncomfortable about using their credit cards for online purchases, you can pay cash to buy visa gift cards and use those.

To clarify, my concern is email spam and phishing attempts that are associated with PayPal, not use of the credit card. You are required to create a PayPal account and I don't want to do that, based on past experience.

I have had a paypal account for a few years now and never get spammed or phished because of it. I get phishing emails from bogus banks asking to verify my password and login details... yeah right!!!! LOL I really hope people don't really fall for all that in those emails.
