Default Paypal option for kickstarter donations

I'm from germany and like 90% of the people in my country I don't own a credit card. Please give the people from europe a way to pledge for grim dawn. Wasteland 2 had a seperate paypal donation site too.

Thanks in advance

Hi Infernoplex,

Please see PayPal - Not our pals =/ why Crate cannot offer this option.

Thank you for your interest and welcome to the forums.

Edit: see my update that Kickstarter only supports credit card payment via Amazon

I would've really liked to support this but I'm surely not going to get a credit card which is from the consumer perspective even worse than paypal. Sucks

You might want to ask a friend or family member, who has a credit card, to help you out.

Alternatively: Method to pay without credit card found by fan

No need for credit card. Just setup an Amazon account (they accept debit cards) and pledge through Amazon payments.

So your answer to a customer that wants to spend money is for him to look for other places to spend his money on...

Do you really believe anyone registers on a new payment provider to pre-order a *single* game?

If you don't want to deal with paypal, then use BMTMicro and let them deal with it.

German EC Cards are the standard payment here. You either accept a payment option that uses them in some way, or your German customers are gonna be very rare indeed. That is not intent as an evil comment, that is a reality any INDY knows about.

Also, Amazon payment does not accept EC cards last time I looked, do they now?

Hi,

I understand your frustration about PayPal but believe me, we are even more frustrated that we can't offer it. It isn't that we don't want to deal with them, they banned us from using their service because they claimed using a donation button without being a 501c registered charity was a violation of their terms of service, even though they let plenty of other companies do it. I have no idea why they singled us out.

Anyway, I'll look into BMTMicro. Thank you for the suggestion.

It's not an answer since no question was asked, and it's not ideal in any way, but it's a possible solution and probably easier than trying to get a credit card.

If you're passionate about GD like many people here, then yes. Otherwise, probably not...

Default should have posted this in the first place :/

From the Kickstarter FAQ:
Quote:
Can I pay with a check? Send cash by mail?
Sorry, Kickstarter only supports credit card payments through Amazon Payments.
Quote:
Why canít I use Paypal? Why can't Kickstarter just take my credit card info?
Kickstarter uses Amazon's Flexible Payments Service, which enables our all-or-nothing funding method. No other credit card processor currently supports our requirements. We're always talking with other companies and exploring other services, so expect more options in the future.
