Through the magic of Stripe, you can now pay for Therebucks or There subscriptions even if you don’t have a PayPal Account.
This also means that many of you who couldn’t pay due to your locale (Egypt, for example) may now be able to pay.
There’s one little hitch – if you’re still running Internet Explorer 7, you won’t see the Stripe options. This is because Stripe uses relatively modern browser features which Internet Explorer 7 lacks (by “modern” I mean “modern like running water in your home” modern – IE 7’s not exactly the latest and greatest itself).
One other hitch – if you want to purchase a developer item using the “Real Money” option you still need to use PayPal. This is because only PayPal offers the cool digital / micropayment options which make small purchases even worthwhile.
We hope you like this new payment option, and, if you know anyone who hasn’t joined There because they needed another option, please let them know!
