    Just let us know. I wouldn't mind throwing more money at the servers, especially since I'm a lot more financially secure than I was 2 years ago.

    @Ian the Admin
    Since I would not be donating in dollars, is it better for you if I donate monthly or a one-off sum equivalent to a year's monthly donations? I'm thinking of how best to minimise your fees. If the latter, how would I do that?

    I believe that international payments (Euros included) cost me a 2% fee, so it makes little difference if you donate monthly or annually.

    It's likely you are getting screwed on the exchange rate, not the fee, unless something has changed since I was last working with ForEx. For SMB and consumer level stuff, the actual cost is mostly in the much worse exchange rate than market you are getting rather than the fee itself.

    You can check by manually doing the math on a payment received VS the posted exchange rates for that date.
