Donations minimum

Hi I been using avant for a long time . Most of the avant updates are usually improvements. It's a great browser and it's free. About donations: My suggestion is if you do want to receive more donations from more avant users,you should have an option to donate a minimum amount of $5.00 or maybe $3.00 instead of $10.00. There are many people who just feel 10.00 is too much to donate,when there are many other great browsers that are totally free. This is just one person's opinion.

I think this should be considered as what i believe moonwarriors point is the option to donate a minimum amount of $5.00. Is that being $5.00. more people would likely donate.My only concern is is there tax or any fee to donate and does it go through paypal. :?: :)

No fee to the one who donates. I doubt the donation is tax-deductible.

I just looked at the donation site. I don't recognize the company managing the donations. I would prefer to donate directly thru Pay Pal, no middleman taking a cut (Actually, I believe Pay Pal does charge for withdrawal). I will think long and hard before I donate this new way. While I understand that Avant is a business and it makes sense to have some functions out-sourced, a donation is a gift, not a payment.

I agree regarding the $5.00 minimum donation. Lots of $5.00 donations are better than a few $10.00 donations. There is no tax or fee for making the donation, and it only goes through PayPal if you choose the PayPal option.
