RE:Pay Pal Is Ready!!

Gary, I think that is great news that MCA has adopted Pay Pal as a payment method. I look forward to seeing what is in the merchandise store. Alan

RE:Pay Pal Is Ready!!

John,  

Once you make your first payment to PayPal - which could be now - it will automatically  remind you (and pay)  the next years renewal (2015).  We are not real sure what form this will take since we have not "seen" hoe it handles the automatic renewal process.

If you want to be one of our guinea pigs to help answer that question just renew now and you will be the third one to give us feedback next year as well!!!

Hope this helps a little.

Gary

Alan,

The store will be a little more challenging, since we have to figure out shipping, handling etc.  All the combinations will make the the shipping different and where it is to be shipped.   CDs will be a good example.  Ordering one will be much different than if you order eight!! 

We will just have to work through all of that.  Once we are comfortable with membership we will attack the store.  We hope to have some things on by mid-March.

RE:Pay Pal Is Ready!!

Gary,

Have just renewed my subscription.  It took about 30 secs.  Couldn't be easier!!  One of the better bits of modern technology.  It would otherwise have cost me £3 petrol to go to a bank for $$$$s then postage of say £1.50 so all in all probaly a saving notwithstanding your 5% charge

RE:Pay Pal Is Ready!!

HI John,

Thanks for using PayPal to renew and thank you for your testimonial.  I appreciate your comments and positive experience!!

I, too, am discovering how easy it is to maintain the membership records.  I do not  handle a check, go to the bank and make a deposit or inform the treasurer of the transaction!!  I merely update the database changing the membership year, add the date it was processed and I am done.  The money can sit in PayPal and once a month the Treasurer will withdraw into our MCA bank account.  

I guess I never thought about the conveniences that it would have for us but it seems to be much more time saving!

Thanks again for using it it and glad it went smoothly for you!!

RE:Pay Pal Is Ready!!

John and Gary, I could not have said it better. Gary, your comments are too true. I have held voluntary positions for over 20 years and anything that will make it easier on those who are doing all the work is a blessing. Well done. More time for restoration !!!!

RE:Pay Pal Is Ready!!

Congratulations MCA Directors,

It is great to hear all this "positive feedback" from members enjoying the result of your donated time for the better of all Massey Collectors, unfortunately I had put my $$ in an envelope and sent them across on a plane before this all came to be, so guess I will have to wait a year to experience the process, looking forward to the on line shop as it comes along.

Well done to all involved,

Malcolm.

RE:Pay Pal Is Ready!!

Malcolom, You might see that most all the "positive feedback" is from folks outside the USA. I had to reply so Gary wouldn't accuse me again of being a lurker.  Jerry

RE:Pay Pal Is Ready!!

Hi Malcolm,

Don't worry about your check for 2014.  You can still use PayPal and I will just credit you for 2015!!  See, I am here to please!  So if you want to hit the PayPal button, you don't have to wait until 2015!!  One of our members is paid thru 2028 so your have plenty of room to be ahead of the game!!

Gary

RE:Pay Pal Is Ready!!

Hi Jerry,

Just glad to see you are alive and well in Missouri.  Finally warming up here today. It might get to 20 F.  We had about 13" of snow so the winter start-up is now!!

Funny you mentioned most of the positive feedback is from outside the USA.  If you look closely most of the conversations and participants are from outside the USA!!  Wish more members would get involved with the threads.  I know we all have things we can contribute!!
