ANA Must accept Paypal

Coins | geekpryde

It is VITAL that the new ANA site accept Paypal as a form of payment on all things, such as donations, renewals, purchases, etc.

I just now was testing out the ANA donation form, as I wanted to contribute $5 towards their massive digitization project.    But guess what, they don't take Paypal (at least not as far as I can tell).   Bummer, as this is the only way I want to contribute.   It protects me as the end-user, its simplifies my experience, and it helps keep all my numismatic purchases in once place.

If anyone is reading this at the ANA, Please, please make it a top priority to get Paypal functionality added to the new site BEFORE launching.

Your truly,



They should I don’t know why though.

Pay pal is a good idea. However how much of your donation will go to the ANA. They do charge a percentage. The higher the donation the higher the percentage. Send a money order , a check a credit card would give you a statement of your donation. The bottom line is that two donations are being made. Pay pal and the ANA.

I would add my agreement ..I know there is a cost to the ANA but it really would simplify payments....... My paypal account is even llinked to my bank account...so now paypal for me = cash payments rather than credit card.

Maybe that would speed up the payments to accounts - it took almost 30 days to get my check cashed for summer seminars.

Yeah PayPal would be great!

Yes, PayPal for me is the best way to make donations because I'm in Brazil.


Level 3

Agreed. I sure would use it.


Level 4

I agree PayPal would be very nice and convenient, but not if it brings too much in fees on the ANA's end.
