    Hello everyone!

    I have come up with some sort of idea for donating.

    For some people, donating can be a real pain, them saying that "we won't donate unless PayPal is back!!!1!1!!1!1!1!!!"", well, I have a better idea.

    Google Wallet is a simple to use paying method, as of iTunes vouchers, they provide vouchers to which you enter your code for the specified money. This can encourage many different things, but mainly - donations!

    This could mean that you ca walk to your local Tesco's or your local Walmart, but an GooglePlay voucher, put the voucher and pay for the rank. I believe this should work. This could gain revenue for up to 25% in my views.

    Thanks for reading! Younis :3

    (Although personally, I don't mind Stripe, it'll add some more ways to donate.)

    Google wallet is another payment type, which you can buy vouchers pretty much anywhere for, similar to iTunes.

    But Stripe is easier and doesn't involve a trek down to Morrsdaescoburys (or other major supermarket chain). I see it could be a bonus point for kids that don't have a bank account, and wish to spend their pocket money, "shopping list: chocolate, chocolate, crisps, more chocolate, GoogleWallet card" :p.

    I Use Google Wallet, Heres how I paid for something the other day.
    "click here to pay with google wallet" *click*
    Pop up window, with receipt information. "click here to pay" *click*
    Done.

    It's the best method in my opinion for digital purchases, it's great.

    That could work,as well as. But because android has a wider range of stuff, Google wallet would be better.

    I agree with this idea. It could help a lot of people.

    On the topic of Apple Pay, doesn't Stripe have Apple Pay support?
