Soliciting Donations

Next time you solicit donations please consider offering Paypal as an option. That's the only way I participate in this type of situation.

I hear ya :/ We were considering PayPal for accepting donations, but ended up choosing Stripe as our primary donation method because it’s easy to integrate and because it’s well-trusted in the developer community—and because we’ve heard too many horror stories of small organizations having their PayPal accounts locked down when they suddenly start receiving a bunch of transactions. Scary stuff.

We mention on the donation page that we’ll accept PayPal donations manually, and we’ve had a few folks take us up on that, but it’s definitely a higher overhead than I’d like :/ Mostly, I just wish that I trusted the world’s biggest payment processor a little bit more.
