BetterMost has introduced a Premium Membership level for those who have made a contribution to the site.  The Premium Membership level gives supporters first access to new features as well as some extras especially for them.  The list of features is growing, and you can feel good that your contribution is helping to keep this site going, along with an ever-expanding number of services for you to enjoy.

I realize not everyone can afford to make a substantial contribution.  Even smaller donations do make a difference, especially if they are made on an ongoing basis.  So do not feel bad if you can only afford to toss a few dollars our way.  The fact that you did is all it takes to get a Premium Membership here.

I do not see any payment information (credit cards, bank account numbers etc.), but I do see the registration information such as your name and address.  I don't keep any of that around.  Once a contribution has been placed into our account, that information gets deleted.  I don't make any record of it here, and don't use it to contact people.  It's very helpful, however, if users reference their user name here on BetterMost when using Paypal, as often the e-mail addresses and names don't match any user information here and it's very hard to upgrade people when I can't figure out who they are.  :)

Money orders drawn in U.S. dollars are also fine, but you have extremely low risk using Paypal, and I highly recommend it because it's free and secure.  International users, unless you get a postal money order drawn in U.S. funds, the handling and bank fees associated with these checks/money orders means your donation ends up mostly going to the local bank, which charges extra to handle these.  I highly recommend Paypal for international users as well, because you can use your credit or debit card (with recognized symbol - Visa, Mastercard, Access, etc.) and incur no postage or money order fees.

I popped another $40 to BetterMost yesterday.  Shoot - dinner and a movie cost more than that.  Thanks for keeping the homefires burning for us, Phillip and John.
