Non-Paypal Donations

Recommended Posts

I would total 100% donate to this forum but, like many forums now days you guys require us to use paypal. Sadly some of us are unable or just don't want to use paypal. If you guys would put, in place an alternative (Amazon Pay, Google Checkout, Other) I would be able and very willing to donate.

 

Using only paypal scares people like me and makes us feel left out. We want to help but, their is a roadblock preventing us from donating.

 

Please add an alternative payment method for donations.

 

Thank You!

We will only be accepting PayPal. You can use credit card via PayPal without even needing to start a PayPal account. So we essentially accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal. And if you have a PayPal account you can pay via your checking account or debit card. That's a lot of options.

 

The only other option is you can mail me a personal check via US Mail. We have had a couple of members do this.

You can use a paypal account to donate however, You don't need a paypal account to donate via the link at S4GRU. It is only "powered by paypal." I have donated numerous times and I do not have a paypal account.

Purely out of curiosity (and I stress that because I'm not intending the question to come across in even a remotely snarky fashion), what is it that supposedly scares you about Paypal? I've never personally read nor heard anyone express that sentiment before is why I ask.

Don't believe in the dollar any longer so I was going to send Robert a half of ounce of Gold. Of course I wanted change back 3/4 of a 1/2 ounce. Not much right, But Robert said it would take too much time to start a Gold exchange. So, I dropped it and haven't been able to donate. ;)

I do take gold. Even a half ounce is fine. Mail to: P.O. Box 663, Tesuque, NM 87574

LOL.  If any of us use Gmail (or a custom domain provided through Google) you can send money directly through the email interface.  I do it all of the time (Just not here yet.)

 

Maybe (IN ADDITION TO SENDING IN OUR PERSONAL GOLD RESERVES  :blink:  :rofl: ) we should start sending all of our old devices as a donation for a later fundraising auction, or just so that you can get in the guinness book for the largest collection of obsolete devices.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
