Fundrazr/Facebook based donations not working in India
« on: December 28, 2011, 16:30:33 PM »
Fundrazr/Facebook based donations ( credit/debit cards) aren't working in India. The WL donate page's drop down menu for selecting the country shows the Fundrazr as one of the options, but the method isn't working. The problem might be because Fundrazr/Facebook involves paypal in the donation process. Upon trying, a playpal dialog is displayed, and eventually the donation process fails.

I don't know if WL is aware of this. Maybe they are and its just that the donate page options for India needs to be updated.  In either case this needs to be brought to the notice of WL.

The spreadshirt option listed for India neither has an Indian site nor does it ship to India. This option too appears defunct in India but is still displayed as a valid option in the WL donate section for India.

Does this need to be crossposted elsewhere in the forum ?

Hi,

Any update on the Fundrazr  method for India ? An alternative method through debit/credit card would have been ideal since the WL merchandise store doesn't ship to India.

From India, the Fundrazr method of donating to Wikleaks appears to have a problem thats beyond the bank. Upon trying using the non-login option in paypal ( and through a debit card), the transaction fails. Not surprising since Paypal does not work from India. The Flattr method needs a FB or Twitter login. Store method does not ship to India. No alternatives have appeared although I pointed out the problem months ago. The donation options page for India on the WL site needs to be updated !
