There are more people in this forum asking for a 'PayPal button' on the Slack store...

Yikes! I see why you do not want one at that price.

My debit card is a master card and works just like one in shops and on line. I guess yours is different...

Makes sense. Has anyone specifically sent Theresa an email asking about it?

What about CardREX International Re-loadable Gift Card;

Quote:
Purchase Fees

  • One to ten cards – $25 per card
  • 11 to 20 - $20 per card
  • 21 or more - $15 per card
  • Card replacement fee - $35 per card
Activation Fees

  • One time card fee - $89 for first card and then $35 for each additional card
  • Activation or deactivation fee - $7.50
  • Monthly maintenance fee - $5
  • Annual fee - $0
I would think something like this would be doable if you do a lot of International purchases.

Little steep initially but doable for multiple purchases. I would think there would be other ways than just PayPal.

CreditCards are not so 'common' in Europe or The Netherlands,. yes they do exist, but debitcard payments are 'the standard'. 35 euro's a year is about the standard rate for a creditcard, and as long as I don't need it, I won't be getting one.

Anyways: I didn't sent Theresa an e-mail yet,. just since I couldn't be bothered: The PayPal button is there, I took the effort diggin up the Paypal account info,. donated,. and got a message weeks later that Theresa hasn't bothered to get a paypal account.. How demotivating is that? The store is US based, shipping rates to europe are sky-high, and the only money that's accepted isn't available for me. I decided to buy a DVD in an online shop ( Linux-Onlineshop.de -> 13.1 ain't officially available ) or at a 'reallife' store. But haven't gotten to that either...

Theresa is known not to be quick in responses ( I read, in this thread ).. but I'll take the plunge and I'll go ahead and e-mail ) Keep you posted!

PS: Don't mean to be ignorant, selfish of N00b.. just had a bad day/mood/temper today. Good thing: I noticed

When I sent an e-mail to Theresa she replied promptly, an hour or two later.

Anyways: I'm going to bed now, and I did send an e-mail justa t t now. In the USA it should be daytime.. so I might even have a reply tomorrow morning?

Slackware's philosophy is free of choice, but you don't have a choice by the Slackware store. You have to have a credit card.
The re loadable gift card from CardRex is quite expensive in my opinion, like other prepaid credit-cards.
Why no PayPal? The world is bigger than the USA.

When I first tried, about 3 or 4 releases ago, they didn't accept PayPal or my Maestro debit card. And when I finally got accepted recently because I had a Visa debit card, I don't remember seeing that PayPal button. It might have been there then, not sure.
Alien Bob's put a hell of a lot of work into the present releases (multilib, ongoing KDE stuff) and he has a PayPal donation button, so while you're all feeling generous...

That's for donations only, not for buying things.

I have tried on several occasions to donate with paypal but the money keeps getting returned with a message that their paypal account hasn't completed the registration process. I have sent messages to both Theresa and Pat about it but there was no response. I have money waiting to be donated, but oh well.

@Henkees: Yes, donations only, but still: Those donations aren't accepted either.


Since I downloaded the iso's, I need not to buy the DVD'set.
I use Slackware@Work and @Home and I just wanted to do a donation to the team. Ain't accepted.

Shop things are cool, but shipping rates are just to high. I opted to start a euroslackstore: to keep shipping low (buy in bulk) and euroslackers happy,. Didn't get much response though.

As Eric (AlienBOB) is dutch (or atleast, live in Tilburg I think), I'm wondering if I could just donate some $$ to Eric and let him decide if he could use it himself or pass it on to Pat. ( Eric does need hardware to: http://twitter.com/erichameleers/status/14382196432 )
