Test PayPal

This page is for testing membership renewals and donations using PayPal.

Every item marked with an asterisk (*) must be filled in for the form to process. I’ve temporarily included a test membership level with a $1 donation for testing. This will be removed afterwards.

Once you hit “Submit,” you should be directed to a PayPal page that gives you the option of paying with an existing PayPal account or with a credit card. If you choose to use a credit card, you’ll be asked for all your contact information, and PayPal will try to get you to open an account. (I highly recommend doing so if for no other reason so you don’t have to change the credit card number on dozens of sites when it changes.)

I encourage you to try both options so they both get fully tested. (I recommend starting with the credit-card option. If you use your PayPal account the first time, you may have to clear your browser history to be offered the credit-card option the second time.)

You can donate as little as $1 either as a renewal or a straight donation.

Sally and Tim, if someone chooses a list item other than the last one, both of you (as well as I) should receive notifications. If someone chooses the “Donation only” item, Tim and I should receive notifications.

I hope Sally won’t mind if you choose to renew your membership early using one of the higher membership categories. Please inform her that you are doing so in the “Comment or Message” block.

After a successful donation, you should receive two emails: a thank-you note from FOSM and PayPal’s standard verification.

If there is a problem, PayPal should send you back to this page.

Please let me know of any problems at webmaster@friendsofthesandias.org.

Thanks for your help.
