I have money on my paypal account but i get this response when i want to subscribe to the pro section. [frown]

"You must add
a credit card to complete your purchase. For these payments no direct debit is currently possible."

Is there any solution how i can purchase with my paypal account ?



Btw. i think Martin would make more money using https://www.patreon.com/

Hey Hello World. thanks for letting me know about this problem.

Its strange because you should be able to pay using Paypal. Have you subscribed to the Pro Section before? Which country are you based in? It could be that paypal payments are not allowed from your area. I will check with the forum hosting team though.

By the way, you can let me know on my email: martin@cobaltplay.com, just incase I miss your posts here. I check my email regularly.

Chat soon [smile]
Martin

Hey HelloWorld, hope you're having a good weekend there.

I've sent a message to the forum management site staff to see what the problem is. I will let you know when they get back to.
The only other way is to subscribe to the Pro youtube channel here:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTMwjGgEb5eg2FRtBzsWTkA

But I think its better if you can subscribe to the Pro section on the forum because its much more active and other members also do a lot of posts and share info there.

Will follow up with you soon
Martin

@Bestgamesstudios - thanks for the suggestion. Yeah that might work because I had to connect my paypal account to my credit card too. Let me know if that works ok HelloWorld.

Also the forum hosting team got back to me and said:

I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you. I have forwarded the issue to the technical team and they are looking into it. I will revert to you once I hear from them.

I will let you know when there's some response.

Chat soon
Martin

Hey Hello_World_v2, the forum guys got back to me. Here's the reply:

I have discussed the issue with the accounts department and they have mentioned that it seems that the user has to add a credit card to their Paypal account before trying to pay. It sounds like they may not have any payment method setup in their Paypal account, or possibly only a debit card or bank account, which may not be an acceptable form of payment for PayPal Germany to PayPal US. Please ask your user to add a credit card to PayPal to process the payment.

So it looks like adding the credit card will be required. I did this for my paypal account, its pretty easy. I think you just enter the details and they will send you a small payment of a few cents which you need to then enter in to your paypal account, or they will take $1 and refund you. Both ways are just to make sure its your account.
Let me know how it goes anyway or if you have any problems.

Chat soon [smile]
Martin

What? How do you order stuff online / get your salary from work?  What about ATM's (cash machines?) Maybe it's about calling things by different names- I don't have a "credit card" in the sense of a card which allows you to burrow/use money you don't have, that you have to pay of later,  but I have several Visa cards simply for storing money / for payments.

Kids in Germany don't have master cards and visa cards... adults have them. In most of the Europe we get our salary on our Maestro cards.

Hey Rayleigh, HelloWorld.
I just checked the Pro Youtube channel settings. Unfortunately I can't set it up to be available in Germany :s Thats so strange that youtube doesn't have Germany in the list.

Hey Martin,

Is it possible for you to manually unblock access to the pro section for specific members?
If, for example, i will pay to you directly by paypal for couple of months in advance?

Regards

Hey MMGames, HelloWorld.
Yeah I'm pretty sure it's possible. I'll check out the forum settings today and see if I can give you access. You can then do a quick post in the Pro section to let me know its ok, then do a transfer to paypal for 2 months ($6 USD). Let me know what you think.

Martin

Hey MMGames. Cool, thanks for sending. I seen the transfer in paypal.
I had to give you both moderator titles to access that section of the forum. But I don't think you can do things like delete posts, edit posts etc.

Catch up soon [smile]

I checked the site. At the moment you and one other member are the only Moderators who can make edits and delete posts. MMGames and HelloWorld are labelled as Moderators but can't make any edits.

Just wanted to make sure, but you should anyway take in consideration creating a new User Role for this PayPal Subscribers for avoiding any confusions and also, to keep track of who is who and for how long, cause I'm betting this paypal subscriber thing is a manual job.

Hey Authwobe. Yeah it was a direct payment with paypal because paypal won't let users send money if they dont have a credit card attached to their account.
No problem, I can keep track of the times and also roles in our forum settings site. Also from this thread here.

Hope you're doing well there man.

Hey Rayleigh, HelloWorld. Hope you guys are both doing well.

Let me know if you would like to continue subscription to the Pro Section too.

- Rayleigh your subscription runs out tomorrow (March 23rd).
- HelloWorld I can't remember if you were able to access the Pro Section by doing the normal recurring payment through paypal. Let me know if you can still access it ok or if you would like to send a manual payment for 2 or 3 months through paypal. 

My paypal address is macfinch@hotmail.co.uk

Thanks for all the support guys. i hope you're all finding the videos useful, insightful, or just interesting [smile]

Speak soon

Hey guys.  I hope you are all having a great week and development is going well. We're now focussing on making our games bigger and doing more regular updates with a focus on reward video monetization and also adding gambling mechanics because we're seeing much better IAP revenue from that. It will take some time to develop these, but I'll be posting videos about these specific games on the Pro Section soon.

Just an update on the memberships to the Pro Section:

@TubeMice - I received your paypal transfer, thanks for sending [smile] I hope you are enjoying the videos and finding them useful. I've now updated your access to the Pro Section until September 30th 2016.

@Rayleigh - Your membership was up to May 27th 2016. I've just removed you from the Pro Section now. Let me know if you would like to continue your subscription, if so you can make a direct transfer to me through paypal (macfinch@hotmail.co.uk).

Thanks for all the support guys. I hope you enjoyed the last 2 videos talking about our latest revenue report and also our focus for the next couple of months. It would be awesome to get another $1000 IAP day, fingers crossed.

Catch up soon
Happy Developing [smile]
Martin

Hello Martin.

Does subscribing to the pro section of this forum also gives us access to Pro youtube channel videos or not?

 

I am asking this because you youtube pro channel is not available in my country.

 

Thanks/

Hi Ajwad. How are you recently, I hope your projects are going good.

I see. If you subscribe to the pro section in the forum it gives you access to all the pro videos. They are posted in each new thread as I publish them. The youtube pro channel isn't available in every country unfortunately so thats why I also set up the pro section in this forum too so everyone can see them. Let me know if you can subscribe ok or if you have any questions.

Catch up soon [smile]

Hey Stargamesryk. No problem at all, here's the link:

http://www.airsquirrels.com/reflector/

Its called Reflector 2. Im using it on my iPhone 5S. Its $14.99 but well worth the price I think. Just have a look at the documents to make sure you have everything you need to run it.

Hi Martin,

 

Hope you are doing well.

I thought you had credit card system for HTMMG Pro section. Paypal isn't supported in my country either.
Anyways thanks for the response.

Cheers,

Ajwad

Hi Ajwad. Im doing good thanks. How are projects going?

Yeah i thought we did too, sorry about that, I've never signed up for the pro section myself. I think it was because a credit card needed to be connected to paypal if you use paypal to sign up.

You are based in Pakistan yeah? I just checked the youtube channel settings and unfortunately they don't have an offer for Pakistan. Can you get a paypal account for a different country?

Catch up soon
Martin

Hi Martin,

Yes I can get a paypal account of a different country but that account could be banned any moment after it has been used in Pakistan. I already had a past experience of loosing 200$ that way. So I would definitely stay out of that for now.

 

Thanks
