Thank you kindly Richard.

 

And thanks to anyone I've missed. Please feel free to point out my oversight!

Apologies for the delay - boating plus poor signal have got in the way of my new role.

 

We're in a good signal mooring now and tomorrow is free so I've designated it my CWDF day.

Donation made. I didn't realise Daniel was funding this very useful site and am only too happy to contribute to the costs.

In fairness Daniel has always received donations just not quite so publicly before

If the income is greater than the outgoings it would be really good if there were an addon to buy which would allow the direct posting of pictures. The present way is confusing to some and it means that if you decide to moved your photos to a different album then the link is lost.

 

I think that I will post this as a suggestion too unless it gets a quick response from Daniel or Paul C

Just had my first look at the activity on Paypal and there's a lot of donations that have had fees deducted.

 

I don't use Paypal very much myself but seem to remember you need to flag the payment as friends/family rather than business to avoid it.

 

Could be worth a new topic if someone clever can do screenshots and walk through the process.

I just checked my paypal donation and the recipient is:

 

"Merchant CANALWORLD.NET Verified"

 

So being a verified merchant I suspect it isn't possible to designate the payment as to "friends family".

 

I didn't notice any way to do it when I set mine up.

I also suspect Dan knew this when he elected to accept contributions by PayPal only.

Its even been fairly public in the past. Just not in the form of regular donations.

I believe this is the case. CanalWorld's paypal account is a business account and hence I think non eligible for free transfers. There are a number of fee types, including one targeting 'micropayments' under £10.

Question. Are those who have donated via the existing PayPal link on the 'About Us' page also had a PayPal deduction? Or Is that set up differently?

 

 

I set up a regular scheduled donation on 16th June 2015. Checking my PayPal account, the first payment went out on that same day.

No I'm talking about PayPal fees...

 

Checking my PalPal account no fee was charged, but then again I made a one off payment using the original PayPal button on the CWF About Us link http://www.canalworld.net/aboutus.htm

 

Maybe the fee is related to setting up regular PayPal payments? Maybe there is a way of eliminating PayPal fees?

Ah. My PayPal account is linked to a debit card. I've never been charged a fee by PayPal.
