    For a reason I've already explained in another thread, I can't use PayPal and will never do a bank transfer, as required by MB. Call me too cautious, but it has worked for amost 10 years with no problems so far (I use www.mbnet.pt system).

    Couldn't ShopTemp add another payment method. A direct CC payment method?

    I wish they'd add Google Checkout. [​IMG]

    I'll spend a lot of money if you add it, guys.

    We should start begging them to give us other ways to give them money. [​IMG]

    Hey, and it's more money for them. I'd stop using SimplyMods and RealHotStuff if they'd offer other payment options like Google Checkout or a regular checkout.

    Another checkout option is high on our priority list for ShopTemp. But right now we're both so busy with the launch of the shop that we simply don't have the time to put into that.

    good to hear, I would love to see you accept google checkout, or any reputable payment method for that matter.

    It seems like an alternate payment option may be added sooner than we thought. According to their twitter they dropped PayPal support, with no reason specified.

    Reason being was because of the modchips, PayPal refuse to offer their services if they are selling modchips.

    Why would you do that, assuming you paid when you ordered?
