    I have again tried to login and pay you the huge amount of 10GBP as part of my contribution and 'thanks' for this beaut forum .... and again I am rebuffed

    I am on the Upgrade Account screen - I enter all my VISA details and yet again I am directed to create a PayPal account in order to pay via VISA. Fellas > this does not expose well !!!

    In my earlier post I have outlined my previous very poor experiences dealing with PayPal where they illegally locked by business account and which took 11 months to clear, and I will NEVER deal with them again as an account holder ... so how about helping me here with a VISA payment via the VISA secure-payments site that I am linked to and that I use regularly

    Yes, I had the same problem when I joined. I did not have paypal and had no use for paypal and did not trust paypal. @Stemmy was able to process a Visa on the back end, but it was a manual process via email.

    I've gone into the Forum Shop & tried my best without success

    a) is will not allow a country other than UK
    b) it will not accept a P.O. Box as primary address [I live in a P.O. box coz it saves on the rent] :)
    c) it will not accept a 4-digit postcode [that's all we use in Oz]

    Back to the drawing board

    OK, our forum owner, @Stemmy has indicated that a personal e-mail to him with your banking details for your debit account can be done at his end. Apparently he tried doing it through the "Forum shop" but this has proven futile so far, as indicated by Phil above.

    I know it has been done before by other members so we are working on a solution, still. All I can suggest at this point is to use the "contact us" button at the bottom of every page, which will send a message to Stemmy. Admins have access to your personal e-mail address which you indicated in your account sign-ups. If there is an alternate e-mail addy then please indicate that in the message you send from the "contact us" message.

    Personally, Phil, I have sent and received $ from Stemmy and other members through e-mail transfers without using PayPal and I am in Canada. Again, we realise that the option through the Forum shop is not working internationally at this point even though it's worked for me in the past.

    I will do this next year as the wife is going to Japan again with the neighbour across the again.
    As that lady had her sister there for a few years so she knows quite a lot about it and she was sort of like my wife own tour guide.
    When she comes home she will be here for a week then head up north to help her friend since they were just out of nappies.
    As her husband does Santa and apparently he does it so well.
    The have people fly from interstate to get photos with him.
    My wife has told me he is magic with kids and I meany in the good way not the pedo way.
    So she will be up there until a week before Christmas.
    I want to say what Ozzie Traveler has said about this place also.
    So in 2019 I will be doing this to.

    Congratulations @Ozzie_Traveller on Premium Membership. How did it happen?
    Paypal continues to block any manual payment from here without a full Paypal account.
