   posted by paolone on 16-Mar-2017 13:03:58 (1330 reads)
Bills are raising, expenses are growing, but... Don't miss the opportunity to sustain Icaros Desktop, the most popular AROS distribution which is bringing a little Amiga magic to the PC for 10 years!

You can now give your little/big contribution by funding it on Patreon allows creative people to get paid for their work through monthly donations, and you can finally show your love for the Icaros Desktop with a little monthly fee. Depeneding on received funds, part of them will go, as usual, to other AROS/Amiga related projects.

Unluckily it seems I can't edit the news by myself, so I hope some manager will notice this and help. Thank you for providing the right address.

I tried to do $5/month.
In paypal there was no path (Odyssey Web Browser 1.23) to pay from my pay pal balance.
I was only given the options of my checking account or to supply a credit card.

I won't do that.

Is there another place to xfer money to AROS .. $60 once a year? Starting right now?

First of all, you should check your PayPal account, it's quite strange the payment page does not allow you to pay with your PP credit. Are you sure you actually have money on the account?

Patreon for now does not allow different timing than 'monthly' for patronizing. That's, I guess, the scope of the site: creating a monthly income where there's not. If you wish to donate 60 dollars/year, which basically is the same for 5$/month, I guess you'd be better using the "Donate" button once a years, instead of using Patreon.

kind regards

The same here. PayPal allowed me to pay with credit card only. Anyway, thanks for your Amiga passion!

Hello. Did PayPal allow paying you with credit cards only

1) on Patreon's page?


2) on PayPal's own donation systems? (the one with "DONATE" orange button)

If 1, I guess it should be the norm, because I don't think PayPal can activate automatic SEPA transfers, while credit cards can. ELSE, if 2, you have to check with your national PayPal office.
