Hi

i would like to purchase the Inscribe immediately.
Unforunately the payment method is paypal.
I will never use paypal to pay for anything is there another way to
make a payment for the software?

cheers

Ok, I've been calling around various banks this morning asking about their merchant accounts. Last time I checked it was hideously expensive, but I heard you can get a manual/batch facility for about $30/yr which sounds much more like it. I'll let you know how it goes.

Hi
I noticed there is a link to kagi http://shop.kagi.com/

But i can't to find a way to purchase it!

I take it your not enamored with the prospect of Google checkout.
It was just a thought.

I used Kagi before PayPal but their fees are much higher than PayPal, the money is harder to get into my local account and it ended up being used for fraud and not real sales. So I dumped it.

I havn't had a chance to look at Google Checkout since you mentioned it. Been working on the code base to get test21 released. I'll post some comments on GC when I get a moment.

In brief, Google Checkout is for US and UK sellers only. I'm in Australia.

But ive now paid through paypal. I have had a friend, who is unconcerned about privacy issues, deposit some cash in a paypal account for me to allow me pay for you program InScribe.

Thanks very much..

I had a bit of a rant on my blog about the sad state of merchant accounts here.
