View Full Version : Suggestion: PC Suppporters - Wider Range of Countries for SMS Donation

December 12th, 2010, 2:46 PM
I've been wanting to donate to PC for a while now.
But seeing as we don't really use Amazon where I'm from and my parents won't let me use Paypal or Google Checkout.
My parents don't bother with me using SMS and I would donate using SMS.
I know for a fact that ZayPal does cover New Zealand but it isn't under the PC Coverage. I know there are also several other countries that aren't there as well.

In the Future will PC expand the number of Countries in the SMS Coverage?

Its not up to us.. we look for a mid-range price that is as close to $5.00 usd as possible for the sms/phone payment method and some countries can't or don't support that price range.

The idea is to keep it as simple as we can for you users, if we set it to do ALL avail countries, we'd have to charge 1 euro, and make everyone do it 4 or 5 times to equal a T1 donation.. a bit of a pain and annoying to you all, I'm sure.

right now, all the countries on the 'list' are the ones that support the 4 euro cost we've set.

It's been tried and it didnt work.

The easiest thing for you to do is buy a prepaid credit card with a preloaded amount of funds (in australia I've only seen 50 or 100) and use it to donate money. You dont have to donate all of it, and the prepaid credit card can be used just like any other credit / debit card.

There are also prepaid credit cards which allow you to refill if you'd like something like that.
