Payments & Donations

I don't know why you would want to donate, but I've always wanted a way for people to give me money just because they feel like it, right on my web-page!

Okay, actually, I do know a couple of reasons why you might want to give me money via PayPal:
1. You owe me money and now live thousands of miles away from me.
2. I used my deal-finding skills to buy something for you that you need to reimburse me for.
3. You want to support a project I'm working on. 

Please note that PayPal charges 3.9% + $0.30 per international transaction (from the rest of the world to the United States) and 2.9% + $0.30 USD inside the United States. If you find a cheaper way to transfer money than that, please email me. 

Mostly, though, this is just a proof of concept to show how easy it is to put up a money-transfer system online. (At least if you have an American bank account to work with). I just went to PayPal's "Products & Services" tab, clicked on "Get Paid" under "Frequently Used Tools" (Bottom left of the page) clicked, "Add payment buttons" and clicked on the "Donate" button. Follow the three steps on that page, and voila! You have an international money transfer system. 

I don't know if this actually works, since no one has used it yet. 

PS: You might be able to click on "Continue Checkout" and pay without creating a PayPal account, if you don't want to.
