All forum subscriptions have been cancelled

EDITED:

I am very sorry, but Paypal is giving me trouble. To enable members to subscribe I had to set up as a business account. My Paypal account has been put on hold now until I provide my company house registration number and company director details etc. I have to complete a "Letter of Authorisation" which I am unable to do as I am not a business.

I have cancelled all re-occurring payments/subscriptions.

I can confirm that all reoccurring subscription payments have now been cancelled (by me). I eventually found the page that lists them and I double checked by clicking on active payments and there are zero.

Thanks to everyone who was prepared to help out. I'm really sorry that I have had to do this, but it seems you can only set up reoccurring payments if you are a business user and I wasn't aware of the consequences of setting up a business Paypal account.

I'm going to delete some of the posts below so not to confuse members who have not visited yet. (OK, that turned out to be all of them)

The forum is totally free for everyone to use again! [Disappointment.png]

Got an email to confirm this, was worried my payment bounced! [Big grin.png]



I've seen on other forums a donate function. Is this avaliable. I would be more than happy to contribute that way.

I've got to sort Paypal out first. I don't know of any other way I could take secure payment/donations online. Cheques might not be around much longer and I think the days of having real money are numbered.

In Iceland, when I was on holiday last year, they laughed when tourists bought things with real money, even a corner shop selling milk and papers took cards or phone payments. All petrol pumps took cards and were multilingual. We are way behind some countries. I digress [Big grin.png]

I'll take a look when the dust settles....

Re: All forum subscriptions have been cancelled

CT, I set up a PP payment to support the site before you set up the subscription scheme. My payment has gone out to you this month. If it is actually reaching your account after leaving mine, I am happy to continue with the set up. But I will do whatever you suggest. Although it may take a while to sort it out.

OK. Just received notification of cancellation. Perhaps there may be other ways that we can support the site.

And on business accounts they charge on anything over a minimum payment. (£10 ??)

I don't get their hassling, they get millions passing through their accounts daily and take a fair share of it for doing essentially nothing.

CT payment has been canceled and hopefully something else can be sorted out. More than willing to contribute to keeping this forum online.

Re: All forum subscriptions have been cancelled

Why not set up a normal bank account will that help? [Like.png]
