Windows 7: *** Dinesh & Kavita's wedding present ***

So tell me, I didn't have a paypal account, and tried to donate with a CC. It seemed to work, until the page that said this card can't be accepted (it's a Mastercard). So it asked me to use bank info. Not my choice, but ok, check routing number and account. Next page, verify the account is mine by giving my online account# and password. Errr, no, sorry, I don't think so, not giving that to anyone.

Can't the donation be made with just the CC?

No idea. I guess John or Kari would be able to answer your query.

Strange. It should accept credit cards. I'll check with PayPal.

OK, after waiting almost half an hour on phone, I finally spoke with someone from PayPal. Credit card should not be a problem, in USA the accepted cards are Visa and Master Card (both credit and debit), American Express and Discover.

Because of how PayPal works, when paying with cc instead of from PayPal account, you need to create a PayPal account first. This process is automatic, costs you nothing and brings no further obligations. It's just how PayPal is designed. to start, click the link marked in the image below:

Then just add your cc information as in any webshop or donation site. As a "bi-product", you'll get a PayPal account which you can close immediately afterwards if you want to, although PayPal is quite practical to have if you do occasional online shopping.

It should work. I'm sorry you had problems.

Is it possible to have a totalizer bar at the top of each page to show the target achievements just like when some one creates a survey i.e like the what age range do you come under thread, i would like to check into this thread and see the bar moving toward the required sum. it would be nice if we could exceed the required amount .

But here's a link to the page which is continuously updated: Who’s donated? « Wedding blog of Dinesh & Kavita

The goal is set to INR 125,000, approximately €2,000 or $2,780 or £1,700. At the moment we are in INR 48,880 (€775 or $1,080 or £670).

I'll update the page as often as possible. I do not want to update it after every single donation because it would then easily reveal how much the last name added to donors list gave; the idea is not to reveal individual amounts due to different resources of different people as told here.

Donations to Dinesh & Kavita
Just wanted to post that what Kari has told us is true and no way has this been a scam or a rip off to line his own pocket. Having looked over the accounts I can say that Dinesh has indeed received more than the total of donations shown because Kari has covered the cost of the exchange plus...

I am rather excited about it even though I am a Yank. I have already told my significant other that we are going to the wedding and she is as excited as I am. I have also told her that the only thing that could stop us is if we don't get an invitation..............:p
