The future of TTD Donations

After 11 years of accepting PayPal donations for our server costs, PayPal has determined that we have violated their User Agreement and Acceptable Use Policy and they have frozen our account. No matter what I said about the legality of our sharing torrent files with the permission of the bands, they don't seem to care about that at all and have stood by their decision to freeze and then close our account in 180 days. After that point, they will return the money in the account and then terminate our account. (I just wanted to also note that we are not the only torrent site that they have done this to recently.)

What does this mean to the future of The Traders' Den server costs? It means that as of right now, the only way we may accept donations is via check or money order. So, if you wish to donate to our server costs, please PM me and I will send my address.

Just to note, our server costs are $88.99 a month. We have survived for 11 years because we have such awesome users and they have always contributed and made sure our server costs are met. I know that our PayPal account had another three months of costs in it, but I will not have access to that money for another five months.

Some of the "Less Honest" sites, have realised that "Bit Coin" is all that`s left to them! So glad of Lynne`s transparency, Thank you!

PM sent.....and maybe you should set up a Bitcoin wallet for TTD, just in case anyone wants to donate that way.

Re: The future of TTD Donations

I think they are looking at all recent transactions. We used to get a few every month - enough to keep us going - and so I guess they got suspicious about them for some reason. I don't know why all of a sudden. One of the things they 'demanded' of my was to remove any links to PayPal on our site, so you should be fine if you removed it, oldfan.

sonofedg, what do you use to take credit/debit cards? (You can PM me about it if you don't want to post here.)

Debit card would be the best for me.

Re: The future of TTD Donations

Pretty much all online banking accounts allow you to transfer money from one account to another account for free. You just need the account # and routing # of the account to which you're sending the funds. Based on what Lynne said about the amount of money coming in, I am confident that these transactions would fly under the radar because collectively they are only at most a few hundred dollars a month.

Re: The future of TTD Donations

At someone's suggestion, I have set up a TTD GoFundMe Campaign along with a Skrill account (it works like Paypal - you create a Skrill account and transfer funds to our Skrill account via an email addy). There is more information on our Contributions page.

GoFundMe is really easy to use, you don't need to set up an account. Just enter your CC info and go!

PayPal has found U2T. May check out the ones that you're using Lynne. Or might use my Authorize.net merchant account.
