Paypal is being a dick

Well, we all knew it would happen eventually, right? You probably won't be able to donate for a while.

Ironically it has nothing to do with Overwhored. I accidentally clicked on on a paypal card application button when it popped up a few weeks back and they've been steadily trying to freeze my account until I give them all my personal info ever since then.

I don't keep all the project money in paypal to be safe.

Still, if you try to donate and find you can't, well, that's why.

I'll work on an alternative donation method soon and paypal might get fixed at some point.

This will NOT stop the project and does not affect my ability to pay artists - just your ability to give extra money to me.

  1. I'd call paypal's customer support and talk some sense into them. Pretty sure they'll restore your account back to normal if you clearly tell them that you have absolutely zero interest in their card or giving up personal data.
    Better than getting no donation money anymore ^^...

  2. You can change to Patreon, like a lot of porn game developers did

    1. Ive heard of a lot of people using this, works great. Although there will be bugs with getting people content that have previously donated.

    2. Although Patreon is built more to provide the means for a steady source of income and doesn't really work well just random donations.

  3. Similar problems have occurred on a few other sites, not just yours; it seems paypal is screwing everybody over.

  4. Or you could try using Gumroad. Still, I'm not sure if they allow porn stuff on there, and you might not like their fees.

  5. Paypal is definitely dickish when it comes to money type things.

    Also out of curiosity with Overwhored is it possible to enslave both princesses of Sayda instead of choosing either now or in a future patch?

    1. Possible in a future patch, according to what he said before.

  10. looks like this could be the end of overwhored :/ no activity in so long. I was really looking forward to the next update too :( hope he's doing okay! If anyone who knows him or at least talks to him could give us an update that he's at least alive that would be great!

  11. Cypress popped up over at the hypnohub a day ago, so I'm just going to assume he's fine and still working on Overwhored. A project update would be nice though to put worries at ease.
