Alternate donation services? Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

I'm curious as to whether ShareCG would allow other transaction services besides PayPal for online dotations?

Of course there's the current Paypal button, but I'm wondering since that company seems to be cast in a less favorable light if other types of online transfer services may be made available on this site? Not that I've had any problems with Paypal personally, but I've heard enough stories to wonder.

I think Google Checkout might be a good one for starters, since everybody already knows that company and they seem fairly trustworthy to some extent. I'm sure there's some others too.
(I took a closer look at it, it doesn't seem to currently have a method for personal donations. The donation feature it does have is reserved for registered non-profits instead. But I don't see why somebody couldn't use a regular merchant sale of $5 or some other small optional fixed fee on the otherwise free item in order to recieve patronage gifts. I suppose you could think of it as a variation of shareware business model as applied to content.)

So what's the word ShareCG admins? I think a few extra options couldn't hurt if there was some sort of vetting process or a user poll. (I know I would like to have some alternatives, because then I may get donations from people that currently don't trust PayPal.)
