And Again-Renewal Payment Returned To Sender
I have been a member here for many years and seem to almost always have trouble when trying to renew my subscription!!! This is ridiculous!!! I mailed my payment on November 1 and today it is being returned to me again!!! saying PO Box is closed. Why does this happen. Where is Nicole!? Do not tell me to use paypal. I don't want to use paypal. I mailed a money order days ago and wait and wait to be credited only for it to be returned to me again. Yes-this has happened to me in past years. I thought OLS would be happy and try to keep their paid members!!!

The post office box is closed (not sure why).

When you pay with a debit or credit card you aren't actually using paypal to do so.

Have you messaged Nicole?

She is the only one that can take care of the membership payments and she can walk you through how to pay without using Paypal.

I will also drop her a heads up so that she sees your message when she comes on.

As I said I do not want to use paypal. Nicole should be accepting payment no matter how it is sent if she is the one in charge of accepting payment!

You aren't using Paypal if you use that form. I understand the frustration, TRUST ME on that.

You click the button that says "pay with a debit or credit card" You aren't signing into Paypal at all to use it.

Anyhow, I contacted Nicole about it.

Just to throw my 2 cents in. I had this same thing happen to me. The site needs to be updated, and that address taken down if it is closed. It creates a lot of confusion.

Can you cross out OLS on it and take it to your bank and deposit it?? Your bank would know who you were, so I wouldn't imagine that they would have an issue with it being deposited, might just put a hold on it.

I have done it with money orders that I have bought and did not need. Just crossed out the name and placed my own name on it and took it to my bank, and had no issues.

Again, I apologize.

I filled out a money order to someone then ended up not using it. I went to the place I purchased the money order at and they refunded the money to me.

I know this was already mentioned, but it is so easy to 'go through' Paypal, without having an account (or if you DO have an account, can just bypass that). It is so quick, and very simple. You don't have to have a credit card.. can just use a bank debit card. I haven't checked, but maybe someone knows if you can use a Visa type prepaid card? I believe there are many online services who only accept Paypal (off the top of my head, I know a few Etsy sellers will only accept Paypal payments). It looks like Brent is choosing to go that route, so maybe the mail in option can just be removed?
