    Default Can't get PayPal to work

    Any tips on how to get my Basenotes Plus subscription up to date? I try clicking through and my only payment option offered is PayPal but it is always gets me a "Cannot set up" message. It invites me to try another payment method, but none is offered.

    Mine was automatic. As long as you have an active Paypal account there's shouldn't be an issue.

    In fact it rung me up twice so I have 2 1 year subscriptions which is good to 2021 which should've been 2020.

    Maybe try from a different browser?

    I'll take a look. Alternatively you can PayPal me directly on info@basenotes.net and I'll set it up manually?

    I say there has to be another option besides PayPal. I do nearly all my shopping online, and do not use a PayPal account. I, too, would upgrade to a Plus membership.

    I agree! I would upgrade as well. I got rid of PayPal as it's been so "douchebaggy".

    I think it may have been this site that I had the same problem with last year. It didn't like when I was trying to pull it directly from the bank vs. the card associated with that bank account (or vice versa). I just selected the opposite one to pull the money from and it went through.

    Yes--that made it work! Thanks!
