More payment options for those ignorant Europeans not owning a Credit Card, but still want to support Trakt.Tv. Add more options to PayPal!
I want to transfer you all my money and make you just $23 richer. Seriously though, more payment options for those ignorant Europeans not owning a Credit Card would be nice. I cannot proceed to obtain a VIP account, because PayPal keeps asking me for a credit card.
Yes, this seems to be a workflow bug where paypal is requiring a card on file. You can also manually send money to payments[at]trakt.tv and we can manually give you a year or VIP access.
this is not completed now. writing a mail is not a real fix :P
But for subscription based services like Netflix there's no need to add a credit card either, but they're recurring charges as well. So it seems that there is some way to implement PayPal payment without the need for the customer to add a credit card.
Yes, a non-subscription PayPal-Version would solve this problem like Frank says.
Or is the manual option Justin said still viable?

Paypal asks this because Trakt implemented a subscription service. If they just disabled the subscription (or add an extra button non-subscription) paypal wouldn't ask for a credit card if it's a one time payment (for example one time payment for 1 year vip)
