Eric: REVISED Paypal Button for Lea

This is an automatic donations paypal link to Lea Hernandez's account. Websnark gets none of this, this all goes to Lea and her family. At this time, the "tip jar" has been replaced with another one of these buttons.

At this time, Lea's account is set as a business account, which is to say she sells things through it. Therefore, a shipping and handling fee is automatically assessed. This isn't a scam on Lea's part -- she's nowhere near a computer to change the settings. If you want to donate twenty dollars to Lea, just donate twenty dollars, double check the final invoiced total at the end, adjust to make sure the total reflects your intended donation, and you should be fine.

There is a revised paypal address -- divalea@gmail.com -- which will allow donations without the shipping and handling thing. So feel free to use that instead. If you've already donated, your money will still reach her, don't worry.

Thanks, everyone.

This button is still returning a shipping charge. But, of course, you can skip the button and just send money direct to her e-mail address from within Paypal.

Hm. Well, I incurred a shipping charge anyway. It doesn't really matter, since I don't use my paypal address for much.

The button links to the business account and is charging $3 for shipping and handling. Who gets that money?

Lea gets any and all money. Apparently the divalea@gmail.com account is redirecting to her normal paypal account, and all of it's set up for business. Like I said in the striken-out section above, she's nowhere near a computer to tweak the settings.

Double check your total and, if it's charging you shipping and handling, adjust it accordingly to make sure you only spend what you can.

Went through fine for me. No problems.

If you send it as a service with no shipping address it doesn't give you a S&H charge.
