Donations -- liberapay -- not working
Liberapay is listed.
I tried to renew the donation on Liberapay, but I get the error message: "Cannot be renewed because the account of the recipient isn't ready to receive new payments.".
How to proceed?

thanks for noticing
the last i remember, liberapay stopped accepting donations last summer - i was not aware of it until now; but it does seem to be fully operational again - i have set it to use paypal for now - that looked like the most universal option - do let us know of there is any problem with using it now

is there a reason you can not get a paypal account? - according to their documentation, that is the option that is available in the most places across the world and allows donations from people who do not have a credit card - the only other option they have gave me the impression that it was only available to people in the US and europe; and people in the US would need to have a credit card - maybe we could just ditch librepay and use bitcoins - i think even fewer people have bitcoins though
would do you suggest is agreeable?
I choose not to get a PayPal account. As far as I could find out on 2018-09-19 I donated to ZeMarmot and Liberapay with PayPal because there was this option:
Create a PayPal account (optional) [x] No, thanks
This is not available anymore for both options, credit card and bank account.
Looking at my Liberapay account's "Payment Processors" tab it offers PayPal and Stripe.
I do not use bitcoins. I just donated to the GIMP team with Liberapay. I could choose between:
Visa, MasterCard, American Express
- Direct Debit
Euro bank accounts only
Card does not work for me. The transaction was rejected for some reason.
Direct Debit works for me.
