Donation

Post by mrwul » Sun Feb 03, 2019 2:28 pm

After installing the latest version of XnViewMP I am puzzled about your donation website.

When clicking on 'Make a donation' (immediately after installing v0.93) I ended up in MyCommerce where I needed to pay for XnConvert 2x ??
Is this correct?
I thought it was via Paypal and users to set their own amount?

@Pierre: Is paypal.me[slash]xnview an official account?

How about PayPal.Me, Pierre?

It seems to be a bit difficult to make a donation at all...
One has to search on the forum how to do it and the provided link in thread "Donation"
where Pierre said "I've now an account on PayPal for donation" still doesn't work.

viewtopic.php?f=35&t=13543&hilit=paypal

In that thread Helmut provided a workaround

"
A temporary workaround is:
1.) Login to Paypal
2.) Click on "Send money"
3.) Specify Image as recipient.
4.) Enter amount
5.) Select purpose "Service"
6.) As subject specify "XnView donation"

That was 1,5 year ago...
Wonder how people have been donating. in the meantime.
(A bit difficult to imagine that people would be checking out XnView Classic forum, search for 'donation' and then find above workaround)

Anyway, let's wait for Pierre's reply.

2. Go to Help > click "Make a donation"
3. Click on Paypal button

The interface design could possibly be made clearer, for example:

Replace --> Select with PayPay -- Click on above icon
