Announcement Helping CCF grow - Donating, Account Upgrades & Apparel Purchases

CCF Members,

As you may or may not know CCF (unlike some other places that shalt not be mentioned) is strictly a not-for-profit site. Our revenue streams are split between vendor sponsorships and donations from users in the form of account upgrades or one time donations. We treasure and always emphasize a good clean user experience and have elected not to place ads and adware on any page of this forum. We do not resell your information.

There are multiple ways to help CCF grow outlined below.

Donations:

We have revamped our donation process to make it a little more transparent, clean and motivational. A new page called donations can now be accessed via the Navigation Menu (at the top) or directly using this link: DONATE

Donations of any amount to any campaign can be made anonymously by selecting the Anonymous option when you hit that Donate button and you can leave a private note for us along with it.

For those wanting to do recurring donations there's an option for that too.

Account Upgrades:

Similar to donations revenue from Account Upgrades is fully utilized to run CCF. We have various levels with some perks including goodies found at this LINK or by hitting your profile (top right) and selecting account upgrades. Most Account Upgrades are recurring though we have the option for one time upgrades if you so desire.

Corvette Clothing Purchases:

All profits from purchases on Corvette.clothing (our apparel store) also contribute to helping maintain and grow CCF. We have unique apparel, masks and other merch available to the discerning Vette lover.


Payment Methods:

All of our donation pages and stores support Paypal and ALL major credit cards. We also take etransfers to: info@canadiancorvetteforums.com.

All payment methods are processed in a strictly PCI compliant way i.e. CCF does not retain or record your credit card details, everything is handled offsite by Paypal and/or Stripe (or via Shopify through our corvette.clothing store).

If you have any issues, concerns or questions do let me know.

Thanks for reading and above all HUGE THANK YOU to anyone who has donated or made a purchase on our store or is considering one in the future.

And we have fancy animated vids showing you the new donation sideblock and donation pages as if we'd forget :).

@CCO Much appreciated Colin.

As a brief update we've now added support for recurring monthly donations. All you need do is click on the donate button (or select donations from the navigation menu), select the CCF Monthly campaign, specify amount and check the recurring box. We will withdraw the same amount every month automagically on the same day until such a time that you cancel the recurring payment. This works with both paypal and stripe (used for all major credit cards). Makes the process even simpler.

Many thanks to those that have donated so far, it's all going to good use and as you can tell we're constantly adding features to the forum to make it the best there is.

As a shopaholic and a person that loves winning things...by bidding High, I look forward to anything in January that I can add to my man cave! Thanks, and keep up the great work.
