    Payment in the Forum Store

    I found only the creditcard option in the forum store and I do not have a creditcard. For the donations one can use "stripe" and there are many more options for paying with stripe, I think: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/how-to-donate-to-the-forum.24519/...
