    Since Partyserver donations system relied previously on paypal - and paypal has a problem with us (a long and ridiclous story of paypal making up excuses which i will share in the future so that everyone in here can laugh) we are now no longer offering paypal donations.

    https://forum.partyserver.us/index.php?threads/donations.12977/

    Almost a month was spent thinking on what to do next, so for now following things are beign changed.

    Donator 1.0 and 2.0 buyers will continue to have their benefits in full, once your donator 2.0 expires it will expire and will no longer be availible. Donator 1.0 will remain active forever like it always was but there will be no further option to buy either of those 2.

    As a alternative we are introducing a "partyserver feature pack", this will be a permanent replacement for both previous donator package and is going to be identical to previous donator 2.0 in functionality, with purchase of feature pack it will also cancel and convert any remaining days of donator 2.0 activity into new feature pack subscription. Donator 1 features will no longer be availible separatedly because in majority cases people who bought them did so by mistake and i had to do a lot of manual work fixing that and converting donation 1.0 into 2.0 subscriptions.

    Purchases of feature pack will be done via coupon codes and there will be no direct way to purchase donator directly anymore. You will just go to website, enter your coupou code and account info and activate feature pack.

    coupou codes are being introduced because this way we can provide feature pack to more players in countries where this was previously impossible due to non-existence of paypal, for example you can be a local seller of coupous in brasil & provide payments via boleto, or sell them in russia via webmoney.ru and via that you can personally earn some extra money via provision.

    Any player with decent reputation will be able to purchase coupous from me in bulk and be listed as a vendor for coupous on the website. You may then freely resell these coupou codes with reasonable markup in any way you see fit.

    Still, i will attempt to offer a primary way to purchase these coupous and have provided some payment options that might work, please select and vote for the payment options you are willing to use.

    I can understand this is a bit of "WTF" to you all, but this all happened because paypal is a bunch of dicks and this is the only alternative i can provide - alternative is (to just remove the whole donations / feature pack from the server completely).

    Google Checkout is popular here in the US so I vote for that. I would HIGHLY advise against Western Union. As you probably know they have a very bad rep for being abused by scammers and it might make us look bad. I have used Western Union in the past legitimately and have had a lot of trouble with the other person not being able to get the payment.....one time I actually ended up having WU cancel the payment and I ended up paying the guy in cash.

    I haven't heard of any of those other methods but I will take a look at them and update this post. The one that operates most like PayPal should be highly considered IMO (Credit card link, wait a few days, add funds and you're done).

    EDIT: Upon some investigation, it looks like payloadz has a few serious issues. https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/payloadz.com

    webmoney and paysafecard use encryption and seem safe but I have never heard of them being used here in the US so I can't vouch for their popularity.

    Considering our audience I think we should go with Boledo. Their site appears to be safe even though their encryption isn't as good as paysafecard or webmoney.

    I will be looking forward to that however the way facebook money works is actually kinda problematic.

    My bank bills me a constant 3 eur fee (which was like 30% of a 10€ donation) for every inbound visa transaction. Facebook does not buffer those and it'd mean literally 30% losses for each payment.. on paypal i was able to keep the money in account for months until you get something like 50€ which was an actuall amouth worth transferring. If facebook decides to add a actual wallet and not immediately finish the transfer then they might become an actually good alternative.

    Anyone know how the Google checkout payment system works? Is it very alike to PayPal where you just put in your credit/debit card information? I'm also wanting to know if you could use Google Play credits too or if that's completely different lol.
