Rant!

How am I able to buy IPS finaly! I've been waiting for over 3 weeks to receive my credit card i requested,
specialy to buy this product! Because oGone or moneybrookers instant ebanking isn't supported! I do not wish to register
my debit card with my paypal account, because i don't trust paypal at all. And besides to register a debit
card with paypal it takes another week before it's finalised.

I can buy over 50 IPS Suites for gods sake with the money i have ready! Yet here i am waiting for over 3 weeks
thinking that credit card would have arrived each day! I'm getting fed up! How can i just easily do a
direct ebanking transfer so i can finaly buy the damn suite! Sjeez!

Sorry for my rant.

You dont need to register with paypal to pay for stuff as far as I am aware. Anyway, you can pay using a debit card as well I believe.

Can you please explain me how then? The only thing i can find with paypal is that you first need to link the bank card,
then make a small payment to them, to verify it's your account, or they deduct a small amount,, then you need to get
your bank statements, and look for a code on there! Sjeez, looks weird to me! By the time i get my bank statements,
that's another month..

The only way i found to pay without registering with paypal is with the use of credit card. Not bank card.
oGone and moneybrookers is so easy, you buy something, then you get a code which you type in the device from the bank you got,
you get a result, type it in, and there you're done! Why make things always so complicated :S

If you know how to do direct ebanking with paypal, please explain me

Paypal does offer the option to do payments via direct transfer from your bank account. You would need to consult with Paypal for assistance with setting that up, but it is relatively easy.

As for alternative payment methods, please send an email to billing@invisionpower.com or submit a ticket to the billing department.

I'm sorry but I have been looking another full hour and reading articles about paypal,
on how i can use my bank card to pay instantly with paypal, without having to go through
the whole hassle of linking and connecting, and checking bank statements and whole that weird stuff.
The other way around is to send money from bank to paypal account first, which takes 4 days to arrive at paypal,
and then send from paypal to IPS. It's the most rediculous thing i ever witnessed.

I'll just wait for my credit card to arrive sigh. I only need it to buy this suite. So silly.
Could have setup the board 3 weeks ago, but I don't have a credit card yet.
I'll just wait. Thanks for the assistance, allthough it's very frustrating.

I used my bank card for so many things before to buy stuff instantly online.
It's the first time i come somewhere that isn't possible. Shame!
I don't even know If i should trust the credit card thing. We'll see.

Anyway, you know what they say. Patience is a virtue! :dry:
Thank you for the support, and i'm very sorry for sounding a bit upset.
But I got it of my shoulders now. Thanks.

Regards
Sarah

Well hopefully soon you will be sitting back with the suite in the pawn of your hands ready to take action. :smile: Waiting is worth it, I remember when I had to wait for my debit card to come it, it was straggle because I saw this really nice computer that was for sale for a limited time. And once I got it I bought it straight away!

Hope you get it soon!

That's very sweet of you to say! Thank you! :huggles:
I guess when you have to wait, it will feel alot more rewarding once you are able to get it.
And I guess you'll feel happier also being a proud owner once you installed it.

Remember all those years as a little child, seeing all those presents under the christmas tree,
the days before christmas, and you couldn't sleep cause you wanted to open them before christmas.
Those were good times thinking back. Even tho it felt frustrating also back then. Maybe this will be the same.
A nice memory to treasure when you think back at it. Good times! :D

I don't understand why you cannot: I use my bank card ( debit not credit card ) with IPS for all semi-anual upgrades and purchases.

I don't understand what the problem is. I pay my accounts with IPS with my Visa Credit Card. I've never had a problem.

then make a small payment to them, to verify it's your account, or they deduct a small amount,, then you need to get your bank statements, and look for a code on there! Sjeez, looks weird to me! By the time i get my bank statements, that's another month..

So what's wrong with online banking to get this number? No need to wait for your printed statement.

I think the problem is your end not a problem with IPS.

Errm, it can be abused for all kinds of funny stuff. Go google around Paypal Complaints a bit. :P


Awesome to hear you got a way of paying now- I hope you'll enjoy the great featureset IPB offers.


And the fact that more payment gateways will come in a while. :) (At least, I think they will!)

As I said, first, it's not instant either. Secondly i'm not linking my bank account to paypal!
I do not wish anyone hacking my paypal to then be able to get all money from my bank account!
Paypal is only password protect, and doesn't even have a verification device that gives a random number each few seconds.
It's just not safe.

It would have been alot easier to have ogone or moneybrookers, which is VERY VERY safe.
Since you even need to use a card reader device with a random number each few seconds.

I'll wait for my mastercard to arrive, buy the ips suite, and then cancel the master card.

So a complaint is its not instant? So 5 buisness days for Payment confirmation vs waiting weeks for a replacement credit card is so horrendous?

Of course, you could always just go oh Buy a pre-paid card and use that....

Prepaid cards have only recently been introduced in Belgium and The Netherlands and are very hard to come by.

Thank you for all those kind words everyone! It's very sweet! Makes one feel very welcome at the community! :D
It's a BIG improvement over working with VB, that's for sure! VB is frustrating to work with. And i'm going to switch
and buy for my other websites also IPS once my other community is finished and ready to use with IPS.
With this software you actualy do not need 200 addons and modifications to make it work! And IPS looks modern and classy.
Not to mention updating felt like restarting the whole website over again with all the addons you needed on vb.

The black login bar on top with message icons and everything is the most beautiful feature, also forum looks very pretty!
And the suite offers everything one would ever need to make what they want to make, without any major addons.
I bought 5 addons and 2 skins for IPS so far, and the website feels just awesome. It's fantastic.
And I just updated to 3.2.3 and it went so smooth. Took only 3 minutes and everything worked fine!
It's lovely! It's a pleasure to work with IPS and the community! I'm happy i bought it! :smile:

I don't know much about php or css or html, but IPS makes everything so easy, even for people like me LoL!
So i will definately recommend any clients and friends hosting communities that IPS is the way to go.
Anyway i talk to much again, but i love happy endings and i felt like sharing that. Good news should be told also! :)

Thank you again
Sarah
