Hi Monty,

Do you happen to know what percentage of the membership fee Tighar nets from the online store vs calling Tighar with my credit card number? Or even sending a physical check?

I am a little obsessed with the outrageous fees that banks charge, and I would rather renew via the mechanism that puts the most money in Tighar's hands.

Thanks!

Jon

Jon - I am not an expert at any of this on-line stuff (Just ask my tech support, AKA daughter), but I do know this:

- When I send TIGHAR a physical check or money order, TIGHAR gets 100% of that money.

- If I call in with my credit card number, TIGHAR has to pay a very nominal processing fee to the credit card company.

- If I use #*$&#$(#*$^#*&$^ PayPal or the on-line store, PayPal takes a percentage, but I do not know what it is.

So I usually send a check. Everyone is free to give in the manner that's most convenient to them, but giving is the most important thing, as you are planning to do.

LTM, who thinks PayPal is evil,

Bless your heart Jon.  Paypal (via the TIGHAR Store) and a called-in credit card cost us about the same - 2 or 3%.  For a mailed-in check we get it all.

Let's not forget, Questions are cheap (free in the TIGHAR Forums) but answers are expensive.

Sending TIGHAR a nice Christmas season membership application or outright donation will do a lot for our cause - and we all hope Niku VIII is "the one." I'm debating whether I should wrap my next donation ... no, probably not, I suck at wrapping gifts.

LTM, who says the next check is in the mail soon,
