    I'd like to become a supporting member again, but I no longer use PayPal. Is there any other payment option?

    I no longer do PayPal either ever since my account was hacked to the tune of $1,500 a few years ago. I'll be watching this for an answer. :)

    You don't have to use a PayPal account even if the charge is processed via PP. See the circled link --

    The problem is that PayPal recognizes my email address from my old PayPal account and insists that I log in to use their service.

    Can't I just send somebody a check?

    I have gone to all cash or checks since my bank account was getting hit quite often. So no debit cards, credit cards etc. It can make it hard when no one wants to take a check. After many many years of online banking and making fun of my mom always using cash and checks I am there now. Hate to admit where we still had one of our companies, making good money I tended to not pay attention like I should. Set income changes that...sorry that was a bit off your subject.

    I think I ended up using pay pal because I had the same issue as you, and yep our pay pal account was hit a couple of years ago. Since our paypal is a business account we still have to use it for orders. Fortunately they seem to resolve issues faster.

    If I get into that issue with PayPal recognizing my email, which I also find VERY annoying, I use an email addy that PP doesn't know about. I know this doesn't really solve the problem you're having, but it's a way to get around the hassle when it happens. I've used PP for over a decade and it's gotten more professional over the years, but I don't always agree with its policies.

    If you use the Donate Button, you can use a Debit or Credit card. When done, message Angie with the information and she can manually activate Supporting Membership for you.

    We can also accept any major form of crytocurrency. Just PM me what type you want to pay in.
