One of the hosts I use is very geeky and chock-full of really nice features. Many done so well, you wonder how other hosts got them to be so clunky. One of the features they have fits in at DonationCoder really well, I think.
You see, it's a little disappointing when you intend to donate a certain
amount of money, but then you remember all-too-late that only a percentage of that money will go toward the endevours for which it had originally been purposed.
So, at my host, they implemented a way to select between "gross" or "net," giving you the option to essentially pay the transaction fees yourself, if you so choose:
You can even clearly see, before you pay
, how much of the payment will be alotted to actual hosting and how much you'll be paying in transaction fees. That way you can decide whether to eat the fees yourself, or allow them to be gouged from the amount you've already specified.
I LOVE seeing a nice, round $50.00 after a payment/donation!
Plus, that would ultimately lead to some larger donations, I would hope. At least, by a percentage.
Much more than seeing that the $50.00 was already eaten down to the $46.somethingorother that I'm left with after the transction fees.
