I just want to become a PF Contributor today! I'm using someone else's PayPal account because I don't have or want one. So how do I do this? Their website doesn't help. Her current balance is 0. Do I have to transfer money to the account or what? Can I just pay with a credit card? How do I do that? Ugh?!

You do realize the money was secretly transferred to an off-shore bank account in the camen islands right? Your supporting terrorism...

If you paid using someone else's account, you should send Greg a PM letting him know, otherwise he might not know who to credit the contribution to. For future reference, you don't actually have to sign up with a paypal account to use paypal. If you pay by credit card, you can bypass the entire paypal registration thing.

But I don't know if that would mean the payment would show up in that other person's name and not match to her account information here. Since she isn't gold yet, it seems likely.

maybe greg's asleep.
 
  • #23
I think they use your e-mail for id verification and Greg should be able to check that against the members list or something.
Any way she's good as gold now.

I PMed Greg just in case. That executive washroom sounds nice - the one in the frat house is a microbiologist's paradise.
