    Put up a PO box number.
    I don't put my bank info on the web.
    I got no problem sending 50 or so, every once in a while.

    I have discussed having a PO Box for donations with the owner. I will ask about that again.

    How about providing the EFT details of the PF corporate bank account instead?

    Funds can only be sent to the account for deposit. If there is a need for crediting the donation to a member then a PM citing the EFT reference and date should be sufficient to connect the deposit to the member.

    e.g.

    PM from DT to PF;

    Date: 10/14/2018
    Amount: $20
    EFT Ref #: ABC123XYZ789
    PF Account #: 99999999-9999
    PF Bank Routing Code: ZZZZZZZZ

    That avoids the PayPal overhead.

    a simple p.o. box address and a 'pay to' name... donors can go to post office and get a money order and mail it... total anonymity for both parties... i'd never give out an account # and routing id...

    at the post office, they only accept cash for them, no id required... if one is dumb enough to include their own name and address on it, sobeit, but you do not have to fill that part out...

    EDIT: oh, and you're not supposed to sign it on the back... nor anywhere else

    this is a usps money order, it is given to you as you see it (ok smart azzz, the word sample won't be there & the numbers won't be all zeros), nothing but the amount is on it, they do not fill in any names:
