Dear collegues,

I want to go platinum but find it difficult to understand the fill-in form on the site for wire transfer: it says: print this page and send it...(adress)Does this mean that I should pay 120$ by wire-transfer (go to a local bank, pay bucks etc.) and then send this fill-in form page by regular mail?

I mean,Im from russia, and it will take months till it reaches the US by regular mail.

Can I send it via e-mail?

Please, share your experience.

Thank you!

Payment in Euro Mar 27, 2003

Is it possible, or will it ever be possible to pay in Euro for Platinum membership?

Thank you,

Why don't you pay by credit card? Mar 27, 2003

Sorry, I saw that you wrote \"... the fill-in form on the site for wire transfer...\" so you probably already decided to pay by wire transfer.

In my humble opinion, however, by credit card you should have less Bank charges and commission and also the Dollar exchange rate should be better.

If you have a credit card I think you can use it to this purpose.

It\'s the second year I\'m paying my Platinum Membership by credit card and it had no negative sides!

standard delay when upgrading via Paypal? Mar 28, 2003

Hi all,

Just wondering what the standard delay is for upgrading via Paypal and whether it could be stated on the upgrade page...? I made a payment on Tuesday evening and haven\'t been upgraded yet.

On the Platinum page it states that you should \"allow 1-2 weeks for checks or wire transfers to be processed\" but says nothing about Paypal.

Looking forward to the upgrade!

agree with Marisa! Mar 28, 2003

If you do not want to insert your credit card details into the Internet, you can fax them to the staff. I paid my membership in this way and it worked quickly and smoothly!
