Hi Sorgelig, got my Terasic board a few days ago, and have now installed the MISTer stuff on it. Worked first time. Had good fun playing some old Atari 2600 stuff - Pac Man, Space Invaders, Jungle Hunt. The HDMI feature makes things a lot less complicated compared to MIST.

My donation reflects my general happiness about your work on MISTer and also your MIST cores before that. Hopefully it will help to finance some hardware for your ongoing development work.

Have fun

I've got a question!

If I donate to you... it is asking me if I pay for goods and services. Its checked by default. And it says that I'm protected then (which I dont need?).

If I remove it, they charge additional round about 4 Euro. (3,99)???
If I leave it nothing will be charged. But I wonder if you get the full donation then?

What Option is the best for you?

It seems additional fees are really high? I think I will donate less but bigger amounts then... :coffe: :shrug:

So If i donate you 5 Euro for "a drink or a pizza" and fees are 3,99 Euro... it makes absolutely no sense.... :(

I never heard about such high fees. Usually it's like 1%-4% (and it has lower amount of absolute limit).
I'm not so familiar with paypal fees, so i'm affraid i cannot give you a definitive answer.
Also, different countries may have different fees.
I've got your donation. Thanks!

I found the same. Turns out they massively jacked fees for "friends and family" transfers:

Yes. It can't be that 78% is going to paypal and 22% to Sorgelig If i donate 5 Euro..... (5 Euro / 3,99 Fee).

I want to donate to the project and not to paypal......

As i guess, there are at least to options while donating. And the second option has much lower fee. isn't?

No, they increased the fee of that second option.

I've received donation from PhantombrainM with fee only $0.57. I'm not sure if i see the whole amount or there was something on top of that.

I also had to pay a fee of 3.97 EUR for yesterday's donation. That was then just under 40% fees. Meanwhile Paypal seems to charge extremely high fees in certain situations. It would be nicer if all the money arrived.
