While other Neverwinter Nights 2 websites are being founded, crashing, and then closing, Thieves-Guild.Net plans to capitalize on its success by expanding. We want to make our site even better by providing you with bigger and better coverage of Neverwinter Nights 2 and to provide you with a huge community.
To take Thieves-Guild.Net to the next level, we need to spend more time and find more people who are willing to contribute.
That’s where you come in. If you like what you are getting on Thieves-Guild.Net (and we have only recently started) if you want more of it, and you believe that Thieves-Guild.Net is providing a vital service, please give us a hand and donate to the site. A donation of just $5 / 5 EUR will help enable us to upgrade and improve our equipment - since we have costs running this service — so we can continue to bring you the fastest and best news, official announcements, downloads, community input, informative content and much more.
Be assured: Unlike other websites that hemorrhage money, Thieves-Guild.Net has a fantastic bang for the buck. You’ll find no frilly offices, no massive expense accounts, no designer couches, no latte machines, and no staff masseurs. We spend everything we have on getting exclusive content to you. Our staff are unpaid volunteers - they are fans, just like yourselves, located throughout the world and are dedicated to bringing you the very best content and help for Neverwinter Nights 2.
And we want to do more of that — with your help. PayPal is a universally recognized Internet payment merchant with a reputation of being solid, secure and easy to use. Available in 38 countries and used by more 40 million accountholders, PayPal is by far the largest of its kind. Although most widely recognized as a payment option for eBay online auction users, PayPal also offers a feature called PayPal Donations, a simple solution enabling nonprofit organizations to collect donations from their own Web sites. PayPal is an ideal solution for Thieves-Guild.Net since we have no full-time technology staff or customized online fund-raising platforms. By contrast, PayPal is easy to implement, involves no upfront costs, and maintains detailed transaction records for your accounting.

What is PayPal, and how can Thieves-Guild.Net use it to receive online donations? Most widely recognized as a payment option for eBay online auction users, PayPal can be used to send and receive payments through the Internet, serving as the middleman between a giver and a website, for example Thieves-Guild.Net. Once you sign up for PayPal, you can send and receive money from anyone who has an email address as well as a credit card, debit card or bank account. Please note that PayPal is a third-party provider, a separate organization not in any way affiliated with the Thieves-Guild.Net.
Is there a charge for using PayPal? Thieves-Guild.Net does not charge its users for the use of PayPal, but PayPal does. Each time a user donates to our site, PayPal will collect a fee of 2.9 percent of the total transaction plus 30 cents. This means that if a giver were to use PayPal to donate $100 to our site, PayPal would retain $3.20 before forwarding $96.80 to our site. Meanwhile, the giver would realize the full $100 for tax purposes. Visit PayPay’s Web site for more details.
Is PayPal’s fee worth the “lost” revenue? Without PayPal, our site may never have received the donation in the first place, so you should not assume “lost” revenue. PayPal does not charge any upfront fees, and it is extremely easy to implement. While Thieves-Guild.Net has no control over PayPal’s fees, we do consider 2.9 percent of the transaction plus 30 cents to be a fair “finder’s fee.” What is interesting is that PayPal’s payment scale does not slide based on the increased size of the gift, so all gifts are treated equally.
