    Indeed, I have a problem here, and I thought the sollution could be found here :)

    I'd like to start supporting TB, and donate my $20. Problem is, I don't have a creditcard/paypall! The other option is to put $20 in an envelope and send it across the ocean. Paul says a wired transaction isn't possible either, and if it were possible, it would probably cost me $20 to transfer $20 (=$40, ergo, too much). What should I do? I don't want to get a creditcard only to become a supporting member. I was thinking one of the European TB'ers could help me out...Here in Europe there are no charges on transacting money from country to country, so maybe it's possible for me to transfer $20 on a fellow TB'ers bancaccount, who then uses his paypall to donate the money..

    Any other suggestions?

    The way I have done it before was to buy an international money order, made out in dollars from American Express.

    There are AmEx offices in every European town and it was quick and easy - I just put the money order in an envelope to Paul!

    They are insured, so if it gets lost in the post, you get your money back etc. :)

    He also accepts barter so if you have any chickens, fish or perhaps a giant block of Limberger you could just send that.

    Send me 5000$ US cash in an envelope, I'll deduct the 20$ and get it to Paul. Don't worry I'll send back the extra 4980$ "Good faith" deposit, Just trust me....... :D
  9. That's how I did it, back when I was a supporter and had money... IMOs are the way to go...
