Why is only paypal allowed

Are you kidding me? I cancelled that ages ago for fear of breaches in security.

Did someone say TARGET?

I have Discover, VISA, & Matercard, all of which I monitor daily. I would gladly pay $20. Nobody is getting the access to my bank account that Paypal demands. PERIOD. I have a flawless 800+ credit score and intend to keep it that way.

You don't need a paypal account to set up a membership. When you go to pay, there's a link that says 'no paypal account? Pay using a credit or debit card' at the login screen for paypal.

FWIW, Paypal is one of the most secure sites out there. I do a lot of business through paypal and have yet to have a problem (*knock on wood*).

Also you can post your pics in an album here and would be able to image them on your posts.

I used three different browsers. No such link/option here.

Copied and pasted:

Billing Information
Required
Description Terms Amount
AquariumAdvice.com Supporting Member ($15.02 Annually Recurring) Subscription
$15.02 USD for each year $15.02 USD
Choose a Payment Method

You need a PayPal account for this purchase.

I already have a PayPal account.
I need to create a PayPal account (where available). Learn more

Country

***
I PM'd the the moderator who is passing it along to the owner. Don't know who that is.


So, to the owner:

I love this site and am willing to donate. However, I will not open up a paypal account.

Please make it easy.

You are asking people to make donations. ... not purchases.

Having to use paypal to make a donation out of generosity and appreciation is like going to your church on Sunday and finding out they no longer accept cash.
