Look, all you need is a dollar to start a PayPal account, using credit card anyway. Paying with posted cheques, money orders, and fund transfers is more complicated, so I didn't bother reading up. With a credit card, you give them a dollar, wait for your credit card statement, then plug in the activation number next to the one dollar deduction. After that, the dollar is given back and you are ready to go.
I've been chatting to Brad, and here are some simple facts for you all...
- If forty regulars give one American dollar per month, Brad will break even.
- If the same number of us get into the habit of PayPal'ing Brad five bucks every two months (that's a staggering, budget-destroying thirty dollars per year) he will be able to pay for his website expenses, and have a little bit left over as a bonus, a "thanks for running this site".
With the crappy exchange rate and the PayPal currency exchange fees being the way they are, I am planning to throw twenty bucks Brad's way twice a year, keep the fees down. It's a tiny amount of money, really. I know some of you can't afford even that much, but most of you can spare five or ten bucks every few months, surely? Okay, nag mode off.
