I really would rather not accept checks as it would be a totally manual process and we don't have any way to track it.

drop admin@sd a note.. I'm close to a temporary workaround through Amzaon if you can't wait (it's still a manual process though :( )

Something changed. I tried renewing a few days ago - from Canada - and was hitting the same problem everybody was getting: I couldn't pay without a PayPal account. I tried again today and it worked. I was able to pay via PayPal with a credit card and without an account - just like the old days. Just wanted to let you know.

I've made some progress getting amazon back since returning from vacation.. heck, even got a support response from them earlier today.

If you have no other way to pay, send an email to admin@sd for a temporary work-around.

I got the Amazon instant payment notifications working, but their library is failing because it needs a newer version of PHP. Upgrading our site to use a current PHP as well as moving to a new host has been on our agenda for a while, but we've had higher priorities.... looks like adding a new payment provider is now dependent on the site/php upgrade. :(

I've looked into another provider, but that has the same issue.
