Like many other people, I operate on a shoestring, asking for website donations via PayPal. So I installed this plugin, which worked flawlessly….
<this is not a spoof, really!>
The problem is that my account got frozen by PayPal because I was using a “Donate” button, which they have apparently started reserving for US non-profit corporations. They have a kinda clueless “Compliance” department in Nebraska which insisted that I provide all the legal non-profit documents from my state and the IRS if I wanted to ask for “Donations.”
My account finally got thawed by someone who realized the reality of the situation… but be warned. Using the “Donations” Button suddenly seems to be inviting trouble.
Interestingly, on their button-generating wizard, they don’t warn people off of using the Donations button, which they should be if they’re seriously going to enforce this….
