thanxs for your interest guys
pay pal is like an online service used to make payments directly to people, rather than sending a cheque, if you know ebay, its what alot of people use to pay for goods on there.
If people wanted to donate by check they could, however unless the cheque is in english, itd probably cost more to actualy cash it than the value of the check, as they charge quite a high fee here to cash foreign checks

as for conversion of euros to dollars... hmm possibly one euro is about 2 dollars. i can check that online tho.
I believe that possibly you cud pay dollars by selecting the option to pay "any amount", i presume that lets you choose the amount aswell as the currency. actualy i just checked and u cant change it from euros, this is what the help box sed

What if I don't have this currency?
PayPal lets you send money in any of the currencies we offer (U.S. Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Euros, Pounds Sterling, and Yen) without having to open a currency balance.

On the Payment Details page, we will show you the current exchange rate and the equivalent amount in your Primary Currency (generally, U.S. Dollars). When you pay, we will handle the conversion for you.
I can also speak to the admin about perhaps changing the payment options to dollars to make it less complicated as the majority of members will probably be more familiar with dollars

You don't have to have a credit card to sign up for PayPal. All they require is a valid checking account. With a credit card on file you are able to do instant transfers (they process right away) instead of bank transfers (they take 3-5 days).

Hope that helps. If you log onto www.paypal.com they will walk you through the process. It is quite easy to become a member.

Great idea! Hopefully if enough of us donate, it won't be such a large expense for Mia. This is a great community and I hope this forum stays online for a LONG time. :)

I am sorry, I don't mean to be so computer illiterate, but I am!!
I just made a donation, but I noticed when I was through, it didn't show my name or anything. So how do you know who sent anything in?

Also, thank you for this sight and all my new friends!! I just love chihuahua's and love talking to others that do as well. Not only is it a friendly safe place to be, but it is so informative! I get more information here than at my vet! You know the best part? My kids could get on here if they wanted to and I wouldn't worry at all, it is the first sight that I have ever found that is moderated daily.
Thank you so very much!!
Lisa (sillymom) :D :D :D :D :D :D

thanxs for your interest in donnating :), the donnations amounts are all done in euros you can imput your own amount, or you can choose an example amount, 1 euro is about 60-70p so 5 euro would be about £3, when you have a paypal account all the converting is done for you. there is no minimum amount for donnations except if its less then about £1/1 euro/$2, the pay pal charge for the transaction would mean that the money would almost all end up going to paypal.

well i tried to but i wouldnt let me it says a error has accoured with the paypal site
thanxs for trying :D , ill let you know if anything has happened, as i usualy recieve an email to say someone has donnated
