    Big shout out to and thanks for @vcwatkins for stepping up and taking this to the next level.

    I think we have a pretty good shot of getting to 50.

    Okay so that makes 31 right?
    We might make to 50,but at some point we will need to close this out. Just don't rush it,because there may be other SDA users who still don't know about this or what it means for them.

    Easy part is over. The harder part is getting the monies from people. We have verbal commitments, but in all the times I've organized something like this, converting the verbal commitment to $$$ is an issue.

    No problem leaving this open until all the monies are collected, but I'd start collecting money as stated (in the next day or so), because there are always late payers or people that change their mind.

    Pretty amazing I must admit. I wish I had a set to use this on, the price is getting better with each buyer wish i had some disposable funds to buy and let sit until I get a set of SDA's that could use the darn thing.

    When I go into Paypal it wants to charge me $7.12 to send the funds as a gift from my Paypal balance or my bank acccount. Does this sound right? I thought if we send as friends/family there were no charges for either party. It's been a while since I've sent funds this way. I can pay the $7.12 but I'm not sure I am choosing the correct method???

    Doesn't sound right. I never get charged when drawn from bank acct or PP balance.

    just used it the other day Brock no charges for me. I have heard from others if this is something you do all the time to avoid charges they sometimes ding you. I may do it 1-2 times a year.

    I have done many many times and not been charged. I even tried last night to incur the fee to estimate how much it would be and couldn't do it. It wouldn't allow me to choose a CC/DC.

    Maybe try changing default pymt method?

    Also, IIRC, it may recall and default to the method you used last time. e.g. One time I accidentally charged an audio item to my CC instead of my PP balance because of a previous non-audio purchase drawn from CC. (I use my PP balance for all audio as a governor on total $ spent (i.e. "Sketchy Craig's Slush Fund") and all non-audio is drawn from bank or CC.

    H9,
    I just double-checked and I was not charged for gift sent a few hours ago.

    I did receive a spoof email yesterday wanting me to pay for or cancel a $79 purchase that I had not made.

  • I used a combination of a Paypal balance and the rest coming from my checking account and there were no charges. I would DEFINITELY look closely and read the fine print. Craig is probably right it may be defaulting or something.

    I figured it out. I need to do some account maintenance when I get home tonight. Had the dang account so long it needs to be properly updated....lol. Too many old accounts and card numbers.
