I just wanted to start off by thanking those of you who have become Contributing Member
and also thank Aleksey for pointing out the Contributing Member
option in this thread! All of your support does, indeed, keep AikiWeb going!
As far as PayPal goes, it's currently the cheapest way for me to accept credit card payments at the volume that I'm using such. I may go find a merchant account with a larger company (that can accept credit cards from more countries) in the future, though. If any of you know anything about this sort of thing, please let me know...
In the mean time, I can accept money orders (in US$) which are mailed to me via postal mail; if you're interested, please send me e-mail or let me know via private messaging and I'll be happy to give you my postal address.
In any case, thanks, everyone, for being here!
