Canal World - Fundraising

Good evening,
 

As you may know, Canal World is funded entirely by our loyal members. However due to recent increases in operating costs, current donations are not meeting our full running costs each month. (To read more about our finances, please see Nigel's post here.)
 

Our operating costs consist mainly of the techy stuff. - Canal World is hosted on two powerful servers, one of which is dedicated to hosting VNC as to help us provide a fast & stable service following a period of VNC being temperamental. The donations we receive help us achieve this while being 100% ad-free! 
 

The downside is that unfortunately this comes at a cost and this is dependent on how much we use, a bit like our energy bills. As such, we would greatly appreciate any additional donations from our valued members.
 

To make a donation via PayPal, you may click the "Donate" button at the top right of the page, or click here. All donations received are invested in the site and will help us keep our much loved site and community online & stable for years to come. As a small token of our appreciation to those who donate to Canal World, we will display a small star next to their forum name. 

 

Thank you


RichM

I have an annual recurring payment in place.

How can i make an additional one off payment?

 

Currently my attempts go to my existing annual payment which does not give me the option i need.

How do you donate if you don't do paypal?

 

Thanks for the question. You don't need need a PayPal account though unfortunately we only accept online payments via PayPal at present. You may "checkout" as a guest without creating a PayPal account. I have included a guide/example screenshots below.

 

  • Click here
     
  • Choose the donation amount:

Ideally we'd like to reduce the number of steps required. I will look into this. The steps may appear a little different if using a mobile or tablet device.

Sorry about this!

A workaround in this scenario is to make a donation by sending via PayPal directly. 

1. Login to your PayPal account
2. Click Send & Request
3. Under Send money, type paypal@canalworld.net

4. Double check to make sure the email address appears as paypal@canalworld.net
5. Click Next
6. Enter the amount you wish to donate and click continue
7. Confirm payment method and click Send Money Now

 

I recommend using this method only if the normal method doesn't work for some reason.

 

Thanks again
