Is there a reason you’re not wanting to use donations@thumperclub.com for PayPal ?


Looks like there is a PayPal donate mod
https://custom.simplemachines.org/index.php?mod=2464

If not you could just use the standard PayPal.me link in the header or footer / donations page ?

Looks like there was a treasury addon but that has since expired but had a good idea of setting yearly targets so users knew how much more was needed etc (so away from subscriptions) but target based.
Similar to JustGiving?

Cheers, will take a look this evening.

I suspect this is all too esoteric for most of us, well certainly for me, can't we just put a tin on the bar?!

Hi I found four different Donation plugins, all of which failed to install. From memory three of them only supported really early builds of 2.0.x the fourth failed on a parse error. To be honst I would rather keep this simple for for Steve (or who ever) to collect donations seperately.

i have reserved an address thumper-club.co.uk, but it only cost a quid, and it would be better if you set an email up against this url, then, when i have other stuff sorted i can give you the details for rerouting etc Steve.

cheers

Hi Steve I can set up an email for ThumperClub.com so for example donations@thumperclub.com then any emails sent to that can be forwarded to yourself. This address could then be used with PayPal

ok Steve, i'll see about setting up a paypal account using that email address. i don't think we'll need a separate bank account as well, that would just complicate things. unless paypal insist on it, which they may, i'll have to check.

Steve I have set the donations@thumperclub.com email up to forward to the email address you have on your club account. You should have received an email which you will need to confirm to allow the setup to complete.

It really is a shame we can’t just pop a tin on the bar. However, can I just say a big thanks to both Steve’s as it’s obviously taking up a fair bit of your time which is certainly appreciated 👍
Cheers, Michael
