How to Continue Recurring Donations After PayPal Ban

You can replace your recurring donations to Consortium News in two ways.

Supporters of Consortium News who had set up monthly, recurring donations through PayPal can no longer use that method. But there are two other ways to continue donating monthly.

The first way is to click on our red Donate button on the upper righthand of our home page and scroll down to credit card payments. Where it asks whether the credit card donation is a one time contribution, or recurring contribute, click on recurring and then enter the amount.

The second method to set up a recurring donation is to click on the Patreon button on the home page, located just below the red Donate button. That will take you to our Patreon home page. You must have an account with Patreon, which you can join by clicking on the red “Become a Patron” button.

Once you have joined and are logged in, you will return to our home page where you will see how to set up a recurring donation. All Patreon donations are recurring but you can opt out of it at any time.  This is what you will see:

Thank you for supporting Consortium News.

    Patreon is a snake in the grass. Beware!

    Please be cautious of Patreon and set up many ways to donate. Patreon recently seized Lee Camp’s account without reason or forewarning. Need to investigate Mastadon and Locals, Substack, etc. The world needs Consortium News now more than ever.

    This works both ways. I hope everyone will Boycott them immediately! I am planning on cancelling all my monthly Paypal transactions & only using alternative pay systems now. As responsible as Consortium News publishing is they are obviously desperate to harm it….this is how they work!! They are a Mafia!!

    Just made a $100 donation. (Visa) Hope it goes through. CN is incredibly important. It is the best of the independent news sites that represent the only glimmer of hope I can see. We must keep the lights on.

    The day may come when CN and other independent news sites will be blocked by VISA and MasterCard. Are we helpless to stop this trend?

      Not HelpLess. We are powerful and that’s the reason they attack. Very little more needs to be revealed to understand that GOVERMENTS AND MILITARY ARE TAXES BLACKHOLES.

    I tried many times to donate via credit card. But I don’t believe it went through. Google seemed to stop it. Can you advise if you received $150 donation? Hope you can make it. This is how they stopped WikiLeaks.

      We have no record of an attempted donation from you today, Mr. Romano.

        May 2, 2022 at 12:32

        I think $150 went through. Keep up your great work.
