I’d like to get myself the pro membership (or “sudoers”, as it seems to be called here) account.
I’ve noticed the only payment methods are by credit card. I don’t have a credit card, I have a debit card.
I also have a paypal account, perhaps it’s an idea to add that as an option? I will not get a credit card, as they are totally insecure and prone to fraud. As such I cannot get a pro account.
Is it possible to fix this issue?
I have always found that my debit card functions perfectly well as a credit card.
Did you try it?
I have Maestro. However, I cannot pay outside of Europe with this card it seems. Oddly enough, this is a make by Mastercard, however it does not equal Mastercard (how do we love complicated).
They seem to want to get rid of it. How long it will take, I do not know.
Perhaps the admin can include other payment modes. I use PayPal for everything I can.
I have similar problems with the French card system Carte Bleue to make payments
Maybe you could buy a “gift card” that is backed by Visa or Mastercard and acts like a credit card.
I too would like the option of PayPal… I’d probably sign up next payday (monthly pay sucks)…
Thanks for your interest in becoming a Pro member @xahodo @daniel.m.tripp
It’s FOSS uses Ghost framework and Ghost’s membership feature uses Stripe as the only payment option.
However, PayPal can still be used, although through a manual process.
You make the membership payment ($55) using this PayPal link:
You may also use: https://ko-fi.com/itsfoss (it accepts PayPal)
And then you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the details on the transaction (like your PayPal email ID, the transaction number and your email ID for It’s FOSS membership).
Then, I will manually activate your Pro membership
It’s manual but at least an option
