Gents, I'm happy to facilitate this, I use paypal all the time, I'm in Australia (1 hr north of Melbourne) and I was one of the BETA Testers. Please confirm you are generally happy with this approach. I can also take VISA mastercard through my business, but will need to charge 2% extra to cover costs.

JWE cheques just don't work internationally, costs $20 to have an Australian bank generate a check in US$ for a US bank (and sometimes the US bank will not accept)... even when transferring electronically (which I do frequently in my model train business). Even in Australia I wrote 1 check in the last year for my business, about 2 the year before. Haven't had a a personal cheque account for over 5 years.

Cheers

Rob



jcar, you are Rob from WeBoB, I assume? That'd be enough for me, we have known each other 10 years as members then (tho I haven't been active for a while there).

I`m on it.

I would setup the Paypal/Bank account and give the two options, IBAN nº via private or Paypal account. Sending the checks on foreign currencies I think it`s counter productive. The commision for exchanging the cheque from EUR o USD to Australian dolars would eat the cheque.

I do not how the banks work in Australia, but normally the commision here is 0,1% or 5€, whatever is greater. So with a cheque of 10€, 5 would go for the bank

If they can, they'll screw you! (More than anywhere else.) Banks in my country have had no problem fleecing the Ozzie public.

It's at least $20 for an International Money Draft (cheque).

Hi Sardaukar, yes the same one :) Small gaming world! Have the latest Combat Mission but lack time to play much :(

Yes there is a reason Australian banks are very profitable, and have the highest credit ratings... they don't do anything for nothing...

Thanks for the several PM's I have so far, we probably already have enough for a bottle, I know I owe Michael!

So send money to my PayPal jrcar @ iinet dot net dot au as a "Gift" in Australian Dollars please. Money received by 12 December will be used. After the cut off I will return the funds.

Cheers

Rob

Obviously all you all want to do is talk. Ok then, figure it amongst yourselves (that will be the day).

Meanwhile, it's happening as described. I have pms from the US, UK, France, Italy, Croatia, Sweden, Finland, Brasil, So.Africa, Aus, NZ, oops and just now Belgium, so far, looking for a place to send a check. I gave them my name and address (sorry Bill). One can either contribute or not.

[ed] and please don't play 12 year-old games. If I get a check for Wiemar D-Marks, I "will" send the police to your door with a complaint for electronic financial fraud. Have a nice day.


JWE, your post no 62 in reply to Rader is a f***ing embarrassment. To suggest that he is wanting to pay with paypal as some sort of point scoring or avoiding payment is pathetic. I suggest you delete that post now to save yourself from any further embarrassment.

I'll vouch for this. Last time I bought an International Money Order in UK pounds from an (nameless) Australian Bank it cost me the equivalent of a third of the amount I was sending (and that was just the commission, the exchange rate wasn't too flash either!! ). Never did that again.

Coming in late on this today...

It appears the consensus is for me to be the money guy.  I have done donations like this both to keep an e-mail list going and to collect funds for someone who was seriously ill from that e-mail list.  Initially I just wanted to collect via check or cash, but that was way too difficult for people outside the US.  Most of the stories expressed here were expressed by other non-Americans on the mailing list.

So I started accepting Paypal donations and that has worked well.

I set aside a portion of my Paypal account for this fund.  I set the account to accept Australian dollars, but that didn't show up when I created the donate link

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=FYZLYZX6ZFTRN

For those who are more comfortable and able to donate by check, please PM me for the snail mail address. 

As for the time frame, we are getting close to Christmas and we don't have much time.  If there is any hope at all of getting something to him by Christmas, we should have the cutoff no later than Dec 20.  Possibly a little earlier.  If people are OK with it being after Christmas, we could set the cutoff a little later to give people more time.

I will post totals donated, but I won't post names for privacy.  I will try to respond to each donation so you know I got it.  I will send Michael the list of donors when I contact him with the gift.

Considering the number of people who have already said they were in, even if everyone donated only a small amount, we might end up with a sizable pool.  For the sake of flexibility, we might want to consider a gift certificate, or a couple of gift certificates at a couple of places.  I would suggest we set a limit of like $100-$150 Aus for a gift certificate to a place that sells good single malts online and anything else goes to an Amazon.au gift certificate or something else if somebody comes up with something.  Or buy him a bottle of single malt and then send the rest as a gift certificate somewhere else.

It would probably be best if it was someplace online and accepts Paypal.  I thought Amazon accepted Paypal, but I just checked and it looks like they don't.  I'll do some further investigation.

Bill

I have recieved 6 (updated) donations already, and a couple of pledges, in addition to myself. We have one bottle of something already.

Bill I agree ref the gift voucher.

I'm happy to continue seperately, transfer the totals to you, or receive totals from you.

Cheers

Rob

Wow, I hate to see the acrimony for a well-intended and well-deserved Christmas gift. Coming to this I see jrcar and wdolson are good to collect. I'd be happy to send AU$5 by Paypal to either of them as they both are highly upstanding gents. What I'd suggest is rader post the final solution with terms as an edit to his first post--that way we won't have to read the whole thread to figure it out. Worst case I suppose wdolson and jrcar could pool what they collect.

And regarding Paypal, it's the only way I know to send small amounts of money around the world other than by snail mail cash. There's no such animal as personal checks in Korea and wire transfers cost $25 off the top. Paypal is a godsend to expats.

Cheers,
CC

Sorry, I only scanned this thread today and missed that you were collecting.

You're "in country" so it will probably be easier for you to arrange delivery and what not. It makes a lot more sense for you to be the point man on this. How about all Paypal to you and if Americans want to send a check, they can send it to me and I will Paypal whatever I get to you?

Bill

As a late suggestion, rather than assume Michael drinks at all let alone Scotch (A good Irish Whiskey is my choice), a gift voucher for the full amount from Myer/David Jones/Amazon or similar.
Myer/David Jones (Large Department stores) have liquor Departments if thats the way he want to spend it.

At one pont I had about 10 bottles of various Scotch's from Christmas presents and drank them at about 1 per year.

Also, IMHO, Michael also doesnt need to know who donated.

Excellent idea rader, makes up for being a JFB.

I'll bundle and send your donation as well as any others (I've had at least one snail mail request thus far) to jcar by the 12th. For those of us in the GMT minus time zones (mostly the western hemisphere), that will be the 11th in our part of the world.

Ok, i sent before finished reading, so its going to wdolson (paypal/t.oestmann) instead of jrcar. Your link was too tempting

Edit: I think you can deny payments and it get returned. If you do this, i'll send it again to jrcar. Whatever works for you best.
