Tried to give money to MX Linux

Yeah. I tried. But I had to create an account, with a password. xxxxxxx it. I just wanted to give you money. How much of a hassle is that?

Thank you for your intention.

I don't understand what's the problem, the Donate page https://mxlinux.org/donate gives you two options: use Paypal or enter credit/debit card info, where did it ask you to create an account, did you choose Paypal?

Just use a credit card if you want to give hassle-free. I'm going to buy me some MX swag too!

that C/C option will most probably be still for using PayPal.
& sure - that P/P option may not suit everyone.

but, if you are keen to help out the MX project - - then do consider using PayPal just this once.

if you still are not able to use P/P - - then do promote the MX project, by giving away either CDs or Usb Sticks,
that are pre-loaded with the MX system.

It shouldn't if you use a credit card. I have donated several times using a credit card and it never asked me to create and account or password.

Mauser is correct. The Credit Card option does not require any registration, just standard information.

what Mauser has said is interesting - - I've read, somewhere, that you have a limited number of times,
that you can use a Credit-card, before having to create a PayPal account.

since, I've had a P/P account for years, now, then I'm not able to prove that statement, either way.

There is no way I am ever going to use a PayPal account with their lax security. It's a good thing I used a credit card when I had a PayPal account which saved me from loosing money since the credit card company squashed the many illegal charges and re-issued me a new credit card. PayPal was no help in the matter.

Hello to All

For what it's worth it seems to be working now (attaching a few screenshots) but I have experienced difficulty with PayPal in general (not MX specifically) with online purchases. I think what happens is PP *really* wants you to create an account and sometimes the forms make it look as if it's your only option (it's not) but the CC option can be difficult to find/almost hidden in some cases.
