$20.00 CAD     -$1.13 CA
$20.00 CAD     -$1.13 CAD
$20.00 CAD     -$1.13 CAD
Currency    Available Balance Help
Canadian Dollar (Primary):    $56.65 CAD
U.S. Dollar:    $0.00 USD
Current Total in Canadian Dollars:    $56.65 CAD

and I believe there are  six cheques in future if @ 20$ would total 120 + what I'm kicking in

 56.65
120
 95
----------
271.65$

So potentially we are half way there!

Mailed yesterday. And in my Goldie-role, I want to remind everyone that any amount AND no amount are both OK. If you're strapped, you're strapped. We've all been there.

Done by PayPal, what I could manage!

I've started a spreadsheet and assigned numbers to the donations that have come in so far.

I'll wait till after tomorrow's mail and post an update.

Is it too late now to mail a cheque? For some reason I've been skimming past this thread. :oops:

No worries, Boom Boom. If you look at the opening post, you'll see that Debra is being prudent and far-sighted, as usual.

I will try PayPal again. For some reason, it didn't work last time, and I didn't find out till weeks or months later.

I hope I have correctly matched usernames and Real Names™

I try not to think about people's real names so I don't slip on the board.

here are our current standings. I have sent an email to Omeg. to get an exact amount we need, but from what I can work out based on what we pay monthly it's 490-510.

The numbers correspond to names, I sent them to everyone as soon as I received their donation.

Hopefully this will alleviate any concern I'm buying beer and pretzels.  :lol:

8 more 20s or some variation there in , and we are golden.

Debra is that paypal expense per transaction or based on the amount of the transaction?

I.e. will a donation of $40 also incur a $1.13 charge, or would the charge be higher for a $40 donation?

But it's lower as a percentage of the donation.

A $5 donation nets $4.30 (14% commission for PayPal), a $10 donation nets $9.16 (8% commission), a $20 donation nets $18.87 (5% commission).

It works that way because the fee is a flat charge plus a percentage of the payment, so for smaller payments, the flat fee increases the percent taken by PayPal considerably.

A $40 donation would net  $38.29 (4% commission for PayPal).

A $100 donation nets $96.55 (3.5% commission for PayPal).

I remember you posting percentages before I was hoping you would come along with that.  :D
