2Checkout - an alternative to PayPal Donations - Donate via Credit Card

In the past, you could only donate using a PayPal account or by sending us a paper check. Today I'm happy to announce that we've added 2Checkout as a payment processor for marketplace access and account upgrades, meaning that you can use your credit card without needing a PayPal account. I hope this added flexibility helps some members out (though as much as we hate PayPal, their fees are actually the lowest...)!

Donations & Account Upgrades - Donate Now to Support PF!

Update as of 4/19/2018: we have switched to PayPal as our direct credit card processor. Look for the "credit card" button after selecting your donation amount; the checkout process is even more streamlined that what 2Checkout offered.

It's against 2CO's policy to process donations, so only the dedicated "Credit Card" option (or marketplace volume access) will show them as a payment processor.

FYI there was a bug in the system where some 2CO options were not automatically credited. This should now be fixed; please PM me if you donated and your account wasn't automatically upgraded.
