Has anyone had problems donating to this site with PayPal? Tell me I'm

I'm not going mad.


I've been trying for 3 days with no success. As a non PayPal account

holder I just get ''due to your transaction details you will need to open

a PayPal account'' but when I do it tells me I have to wait 3 to 5 days

to 'verify' my account during which time I have to give my bank details, set up a direct debit and confirm two payments they credit my account with, blah blah blah.

Now I cant cancel my account even though I have 2 e-mails from them saying it has been canceled .


And depending on who you get through to, the 'helpdesk' is either useless,

absolutely usless or absolutely amazingly stunningly useless.

You do have to go through this process to verify an account but you used to be able to open an unverified one - have they stopped this now?


I think there should be an alternative to paypal for donations, a lot of people don't like using paypal because of the mistakes they frequently make and their failure to put them right efficiently.


Plus of course it costs the site money to use paypal, may only be pence but it all adds up!


What's the alternative? oh yeah, the banks :rolleyes:

I attemted several times to pay with my unverified account, and even trying an amount well below the maximum limit, it still did'nt work.


When I put this to the helpdesk they told me they ''ramdomly lower the limit for security reasons'' (?) and went on to say ''you obviously do'nt

understand how PayPal works, do you?'' which is the only thing they've

managed to get right so far...
