Payee on Bank Transfer Donation...?
« on: January 22, 2023, 21:31 »
Q.Q for Piggy....

Just made a donation using Bank Transfer and my App (Starling) asks for a first name and last name of Payee. Your donation details only state a single name (Mia). Does your account have both?

Not an issue but it does throw up an alert stating that payee details don't match. Just thought it worth an ask....?

Thanks dk. As with all donations it's much appreciated.

Yes - that came through OK. I have a feeling this account isn't part of the name sharing scheme anyway (it wasn't last time I checked).

You're the third person to donate that way. It's definitely the best way to do it for people in the UK as it comes through fee-free - unlike PayPal.

I did investigate setting up a club/charity account, but there was a lot of process to go through. There'd need to be a charter and a board and all kinds of things like that. All we're trying to do here is run a server and have fun!

That's fine Piggy...

I had tried Mia as both first & 2nd names (together) but it did say that was unrecognised... No worries - I know it worked ok now..  ;)
