Subscribing


I find I'm a guest again. As my paid membership was an anonymous gift I wasnt sure when it expired.
I'd like to re-up. I went to the user cp found the paid subscription thingy and clicked. Seems paypal is the only way to pay. I don't have a paypal account. Is there another way to pay?
Please help. The ads are making me stabby

Tuba would be the one to issue a definite answer, but for now, I seem to recall that somewhere on the PayPal page, there is a small button somewhere that allows you to "Pay with Credit Card." That's what I've always done. I think that such a credit card payment is processed through PayPal, but does not require a PayPal account.

Have another look at the page, Beck. I'm sure that it's there somewhere. And don't get stabby.

PayPal processes our credit cards for us, but you don't need a PayPal account to use it. I can't tell you exactly how to do it since PayPal keeps changing the screens around, but somewhere on the screen you should be able to find an option to pay with a credit card. They like to hide the option a bit since PayPal would prefer for you to use their service instead of a credit card, but the option should be there somewhere.

You might need to enter some info just for the credit card, but you shouldn't have to actually create a PayPal account.

We have occasionally had some people report that the credit card option was only there using certain browsers. If the option never shows up, then switching browsers might be an option for you.

If you continue to have trouble, send me a PM or contact our admin (TubaDiva) directly at tubadiva@aol.com.
