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
