A few notes[edit source]

A few notes to add to the paypal process:

There is a fee to send money via paypal

A $5 donation will result in a $5.45 charge to the sender.

We are investigating other options. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.22.12.35 (talkcontribs)

There aren't really better options than that. If you don't set it up as a purchase -- because it isn't -- I've never seen additional charges. But even that, essentially every payment network charges, and often more for lower amounts. That's only 9%. Other sites take 5% plus processing fees, which are in the 2-4% range (typically something like 2%+0.35$). So there's really no way to improve on small donations. We could possibly improve this with Patreon, which does lots of lump-sum transactions -- essentially aggregating inflows and outflows, but that would take routine donation (and still 5% overhead). If you're upset about actually seeing the transaction fees... welcome to the real world. Vorticity (talk) 20:27, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

I'll check into this further. I assume that people could mail you a check, and you could then add it to group's funds.

I'll at least find out what other people are doing.

Please add me to the donors group when you get a chance. ( https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:GlobalUsers/donator ) Thanks! Robert Sterbal 412-977-3526

They couldn't "mail us" as we don't currently have an address, and we all live (including the founders) in different locations. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 03:49, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Gratipay[edit source]

https://gratipay.com looks like a good fit for Miraheze donations/funding. Jayvdb (talk) 04:50, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

Add documentation category to the Donate page[edit source]

Will a Meta Administrator add the page Donate to the following Category:Documentation please as the aforementioned page is protected. Thanks. Borderman  talk | contribs | email 21:53, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

The same goes for the following page Finance as it is connected to donations. Thanks. Borderman  talk | contribs | email 22:08, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Done with the Category:Finance under the documentation cat. — revi 22:27, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
