PayPal Donations

Postby red » Fri Nov 02, 2007 5:19 pm

As you are probably aware we here at ProjectPuma have no formal advert/subscription system hence every member has full uninterrupted access to the entire site.

I have added a small PayPal Donate button to the footer of the site and would like to iterate that there is no obligation to make a donation.

That being said, if you enjoy your time here and would like to keep the site advert/subscription free then please feel free to make a donation :)

Any donation big or small is very gratefully received.

Donors will remain anonymous.

Where would money go if I were to donate?

Currently this website runs on a 20Gb hard disk and the Internet connection to the server is limited to 10Gb worth of data transfer.

As the site grows I expect the web connection will reach it's limit hence capping the connection and possibly causing slower performance. Also as the site content increases the hard drive capacity decreases and as you can imagine 20Gb doesn't go far these days.

With enough donations my first port of call would be to migrate the server & website onto a larger hard disk (Between 80Gb-300Gb) and then funds permitting upgrade the data transfer limit (unlimited).

Thank you for your time.

Thanks Pat (for the post and donation). The number of donations which go toward the site is very low, in fact the donors can probably be counted on one hand. However everything is very much appreciated and every little helps as they say.

To be honest we do have donations going to Tyge the Puma so I really don't expect any donations towards the running of the site as well.

In terms of where the site is now compared with post #1 above:-

The server has moved, it was hosted at my house for the first 3 years of it's life. It's now on a dedicated virtualised server hosted with a company called WizzVPS.

This coincided with the move from PHPBB2 to PHPBB3. The site still uses a 20GB hard drive which is currently proving sufficient.

The bandwidth is now 250GB per month which I don't think we'll ever hit.

All in all we've made some good progress. I hope you're all still enjoying your stay.

How do I use my paypal account to receive payments? I recently developed a paypal account, in order to receive payment for something I'm selling on a website. I have no idea how to actually use paypal.The purchaser asked for my paypal account name and email. Is that all I have to provide them in order for them to pay me?

To pay you they only need an email address associated with your PayPal account.
