We did get money from google ads but we got in trouble so we dont have any income now other than the new bonus ball idea.

The running costs are not high 15-20 quid a month would cover them, but we would like to do a lot more on the site and be able to give away prizes all the time.

And because me and trina have pretty much no disposable income at the minute buying things like prizes for the forum isnt a top priority.

i dont think prizes are that important to be fair


do you need paypal? cant you just set up a bank account for gw, and people could just transfer money in with no fees?

i would guess the fee would be broke down into a base rate charge then add on a percentage

£1, the charge is 23p, so say the base rate is 20p, then you have 3p/£1 = 3% (the %add on)

see if this is accurate with your second figure


£10. the charge is 52p, base rate 20p + (0.03*10 = 30p) = 50p (close to 50p)

so the percentage is prob done to a couple of decimal places and maybe rounded up to get the final figure which would work for these two figures

i dont know if this is how paypal do it? but it works for these two numbers

simples ;)

If you get charged less for £10 then maybe ask people to pay for in blocks of ten for either 10 numbers or 10 weeks?
