OK - I hate PayPal with a passion now.
They wouldn't let me accept payment because I wasn't 'verified'. I had to add a checking account. OK - I went to go add it - and it was already there! I had so many PayPal accounts over the years, I don't remember which one I added it to, and I sure know that I never verified it, so the checking account is just sitting on PayPal's servers going to waste. Wonderful.
So, I decide to use my savings account. Have to wait for deposit - wait a while - nothing shows up: so I can't verify. Then I log in to see that 5 of the donations to the contest were refunded.
I'm going to create a new checking account today, since Paypal doesn't like my savings account. It will take 3-4 days, and 3 donations expire today, 2 tommarrow, and 1 on Wednesday. Great.
If you made a donation, and it's refunded, don't worry about it. It's not your fault - it's Paypal's stupid policy. I'll cover your donation out of pocket, and keep your name up on the page. I really don't want people to think that I'm out to scam anyone - I'm not, it's just that my family has a history of bad luck when it comes to getting anything important done - and the curse has struck again.
