    I tried to donate 20 bucks to the boc, entered my credit card number, and it says it won't accept my debit card. There'd plent of money on it but it just wont go through. Does BOC take donations over the phone?:confused2:and it is visa....

    If ya don't have paypal then send a check by snail mail. Takes a little longer but the old fashion way still works :cool2:.

    I use a bank money order to donate each year. I don't deal with pay pal either. Just send it to Pauls address.

    Gents,

    We do only Pay-Pal (3rd Party Processor) or Direct Mail. I do not handle your credit card information directly, nor do I want to for security concerns and risk aversion.

    At one point we had a merchant account, but the risk was to high having access to credit card numbers in the event a member was removed from the BOC. There are some true nut cases out there.

    For a mailing address and full details see the below:

    You need to have a registered account with paypal then once you are sign back on catfish1 and donate then.. somewhere along the way either it should ask you for your paypal account info or work automatically.

    Paypal is easy, and is used by many people all across the internet. I have never had a problem with them.
