I can understand not wanting to use paypal as a merchant after this change (particularly if you are often issuing refunds), but boycotting the entire platform seems extreme don't you think?
I wonder why they have decided to make this change though - is the increased transaction overhead of processing a refund really that significant for paypal, or do you think it's an attempt at a subtle change simply to increase profit?

Paypal never treated sellers serious.
"Buyers" or so called "consumers" are larger group than "sellers", so favorizing them is a good marketing move, but guess what - it sux for sellers.

Gesior made a right move deleting paypal accout. I would too, if I were brave enough.

I don't want to use PayPal anymore ( PayPal (is a) scam – removing my PayPal account – HALP! (http://halp.skalski.pro/2019/05/05/paypal-is-a-scam-removing-my-paypal-account/) ). Removed my paypal account and lost OtLand premium account.
It's not possible to subscribe with credit card by paypal without creating account on paypal (again).

@Delirium
Any other payment method available?
No, I don't think Otland supports any other payment method currently but you should probably ask an administrator about that. I am not staff anymore.

PayPal's biggest problem is the abuse of the "unauthorized payment" dispute reason in my opinion. I used to sell software and I had a lot of people disputing payments using the reason I mentioned before. In most cases, no matter how much proof I provided them, they sided with the buyer.

Any other way to pay for premium? Skrill? PaySafeCard? Bank transfer? Bitcoin?

The only other method I can imagine being offered is direct CC transaction via Braintree, which is basically PayPal anyway but without requiring a PayPal account. The other methods you mentioned have low liquidity or high transaction fees that make them difficult to accept.

Oh we have a thread for questions regarding premium subscription here.
Didn't know that! I had a quick question that I asked in the premium board but it remains unanswered.

Is there a way to gift a premium subscription to another user?

Oh ok, thanks. I noticed that there is a XenForo addon for gifting or purchasing upgrades for other users, called Gift Upgrades and I was just wondering if we had that addon or not. Would have been a neat feature to have nonetheless.
