So what's the story with the display of the donation amount being slightly smaller than the actual donation amount?

I finally fixed it where it shows the paypal fees. Paypal takes fees out with every donation. We was under the limit of what we needed each month which caused unnecessary extra goals.

Have you considered other payment methods for donations, so you can avoid the paypal fees?  Like Venmo or Square Cash?

For those that want to donate $6.66 (when using PayPal as the processor):

 

So after my initial donation this month, which I tried to have come out as $105.70 (see my profile if you want to know why)- I figured I'd back calculate and figure out how to advise people to donate $6.66 as a fun way to encourage people to make a small donation if they can-

 

So at first I calculated the "fee" off of my original donation, where the amount I donated was $105.70, but that showed as only $102.33, which gave a "fee" rate.  However using that fee rate, I calculated that it would take a donation of $6.90 to show a donation of $6.66 after the fee- but it didn't, it showed a donation of $6.40.  My guess is that the fee paypal charged was different based on the amount.

 

Using this new 'rate' I calculated what to donate to get $6.66 after fee.  After making that donation, I discovered there must be a floating point issue (due to the precision I used I guess), and I was off by one penny.

 

*** SO, if you want to donate and have it show up as a donation of $6.66, you have to donate $7.17, and after the fees are taken, on the CustomsForge page it will show a donation of $6.66.  Enjoy. ***

My way was just me having fun :)  And I was unsure if there were different PayPal fee structures for different account types, etc... ;)

Is there a breakdown of how the donated money is spent? I tried to look for it but couldn't find it. I think it would encourage more people to donate if the information was out in the open.

Basically it all goes to cover the maintenance costs of the servers, as it is not hosted by ourselves. If there are extra costs we try to cover them with them too (or out of pocket if it's necessary). There is more information in the April Fool's newsletter as Unleashed2k (founder) explains it.

 

Hope this helps!  :)

It sounds like your end since we're still getting donations. You can try sending it to unleashed2k@gmail.com and add your username as a note, then PM me as well on here or discord and I'll add it to the system.
