i'm a bit late to this post, but anyway... i'm canadian; our debit cards are Point-of-Sale only. i really love the thing americans have, that their debit cards are backed by the credit card companies, allowing them to pay online almost anywhere that asks for a credit card. very handy! and very unavailable here. so i can't use this option. i don't own a credit card. i have a poor credit history, and it's laughable to even apply for a credit card. waste of my time and the credit company's. so i can't use this option. a pre-paid credit card for $25 has a $4 activation fee. $5 activation for a $50 card, which is more reasonable, $6 at a $75 card, etc. i buy about one per year, and use it slowly for tiny little transactions. -little- transactions, like buying apps for 2.50, or in-app purchases of a dollar. so i -won't- use this option. i have paypal. i love paypal. it comes out of my bank, it works online, i've got a decent enough reputation with them that i can use instant transfers. this is perfect for me. and -you- won't let me use this option. welp, alrighty then. on a side note, restricting mobile use to subscribers seems like the opposite of the way to go here. it's not unreasonable to assume that, at any given stage of the site's development, a fixed % of users will become subscribers. pulling a random number out of my hat, let's just say it's 5%. is it not now -more- effective to make sure that the most people possible can access the site? whether it be by desktop, or mobile, or by cyberlinked ethernet chip implanted in their skull, or whatever method they want to use... 5% of more people will always be greater than 5% of less people. now by all means... if there is some reason you -cannot- do these things (paypal, open mobile access), please let us know. paypal won't deal with companies until they reach a certain age? or a certain cashflow value, or some other target? backers were promised exclusive mobile access for the first XX months? whatever. just let people know, and we can find some way to work around it with you.
