I think htis has been requested before and I don't know if anything was ever said about this possibility so I am going to suggest it again.

Is there any way that we can get maybe like a content box where anyone can donate any amount of money to the website and when it comes time to pay for the website then the monmey can be taken out of there if there is enough to cover the fee? i think this would be a real hit on some websites and it would probally work out well. It wouldhnt have to be anything to complicated either just maybe like something that says "Help keep this website ad/limit free Click here to Donate to us" and when they click it it will direct them to where they can donate.

Is thios something that would be all that hard to make up Aaron?

This was requested a LONG time ago when I was admin of an EQ guildstill.  If I remember right it had something to do with a paypalsetup.

I know this can be done to because Qeynos Guardians appears to have somehting like this set up. I'm sure there are a lot of codes involded to make it work and im terrible with codes so thats why I am asking if guildportal can make up there own content box like this that I can use.

Yeah there was a reason that Aaron couldnt do it and I honestly dont remember. There was a HUGE discussion on this but it was some time ago.

You could just set up a paypal account for donations and pay your feesfrom that. That's what we've done. I actually have a paypal button butyou can put your own images in there instead.

Same for us - we use a paypal account members can donate into and use that same account to pay for the GP subscription.

Just create a personal Paypal account at www.paypal.com and follow the instructions.

If you want to add funds from your own bank account you can authenticate it, and if you want to set up a more "professional" system you can opt for the premier account like we did to accept more payment oiptions.

This may be a stupid question, but do we need a bank-account set up to us to be accept donations?
