Paul
Can i send you a (Postal) Money Order for the BWH DVD's? Or anything else for that matter.  I am at war with PayPal for not honoring a Bill Me Later purchase, which cost me fantastical charges at my bank. I say Postal M.O. as that should be the easiest to cash, and you would not have to wait until my check cleared. My assumption (dangerous, i know) is the address you provided for someone to send something for the ants, would be the best place to send said M.O. Please disabuse me if this is incorrect, and provide the correct address, providing you are willing to accept this payment method.

A thought. (also dangerous.) Perhaps you could include such information on such payments on every page with offerings, (with the above proviso of course) for people who do not have bank accounts. PayPal requires a bank account.  I know that seems strange in this day and age, but i know quite a few who do not, in my area, because they do not like the (only) local bank (WF) within 33 miles. Neither do i, but i have a credit union half a country away, and do not mind online and snail mail banking. But having only the one (PayPal) option is limiting.

Thanks,
Penelope

Somebody else asked me that a few months ago.  I said a postal money order would be fine, but add $20 for me to shuffle funds in a way I am no longer used to.  

What about bitcoin?  My bitcoin thing-a-ma-bob is 177pNU2a9iCpUXQwXX9EbtA2UwZpgeqcMT

Somebody else sent me an amazon gift card.  That worked fine.  

I have a dwolla account - although that seems to be turning into something else.  

If you are gonna send me something in the mail, please send to:

I have offered other options for payments in the past, it seems like I do 500 paypal, plus 1 bitcoin and 1 .... other.  

We have it on our list to take bitcoin at the DM.  Coming soon!

Yeah i don't do bitcoin either.
With the Amazon Card, is it still $20 more?
Wow. 20 more for cash!  Yikes! Seems punitive.

Amazon - same price.   Amazon is instant and easy.

$20 more for the postal money order.  

If I received 20 checks a week, I would have an optimized process for depositing them all.  But things are so different now.  And now checks are bogus and even cashier's checks are bogus.  So with a postal money order, I would go to the post office to cash it.   That way I can be sure it is not bogus.   So I have to go to an actual post office and wait in line and when I am holding the cash in hand, then I know that the postal money order was not bogus.   Pain in the butt.

Paypal is pretty sweet.  Very instant.  

Bitcoin and amazon are sweet too.
