It certainly isn't ST and it certainly is PayPal.

I've checked and it's working for me (Mac, Safari 10.1) so perhaps web browser/Java/cache related. I recreated your situation and once I selected US the page reloaded to give me State and ZIP code options. Does your page reload when you select the US? 

(I also selected the UK and the form changed again for UK specific details)

I am unable to pay for anything because paypal wont let me choose states, I can only choose Canadian provinces. I PMed Dirk about this but it's been a few days, maybe someone else can help. I am unsure if this is a ST problem, paypal problem, or only a problem for me and wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this problem?

Thanks for your intended support of the site.

If it's any help, I was able to retrieve the list of US states (or other country area) by:

  1. First entering the desired Donation amount at the top.
  2. Selecting the Country. The page will then auto-reload (you may need to enter a quick security code).
  3. The correct area list should now be populated, and can be selected. The same also for other country specifics, such as "ZIP Code" vs "Postcode".


Not entering the donation amount seems to prevent the fields from updating. Since it rather counter-intuitively throws an error upon selecting the country, once the page is refreshed. PayPal really ought to improve that, such as by only validating once the form is submitted.


Hopefully this works for you. *:)

If not, I'll inform Dirk via the emergency line.

Hey thanks for all the help. I'm currently having different problems with pay pal and can't try to solve this current problem but I appreciate the responses. If I don't respond just assume my problem is solved. ;) Thanks.

What if you want to donate but do not want to receive any collections gift ?

Thanks for your interest in supporting the site.

I've checked with @Dirktator on this, and can confirm an automatic email will be sent to your address provided after your donation has been processed. If you'd like to opt-out of receiving a STEX disc or digital download, that's completely fine. Please send a quick reply to the email making this known.

Should you not receive said email, I'd recommend sending Dirk a PM here at ST.

Thanks again.

I made a donation through Paypal.  I wasn't sure if I would be charged an exchange rate from CA funds to US funds given that the site is apparently owned in CA and I'm in CA, so I added a bit to make up for any exchange that might be added.  Paypal did also add the exchange, so that's okay, but I was wondering if there is a way to make a donation in CA funds without being charged the exchange?  

I'll have to re-send my reply to the email sent from ST to make sure I specified digital download clearly.  Good to see that ST is now using the HTTPS protocol. I suppose the security encryption also includes any uploaded or downloaded files as well as web pages and text messages?

I'm not the expert in this regard (I'll have to check with Dirk), but I believe Paypal is only setup for the exchange to US Dollars.

No worries, I'll also make Dirk aware of your choice so there's no confusion.

Yes, HTTPS is now enabled sitewide for all pages including file transfers. It really is a much needed addition in this day and age of security.

Would you be able to help us catch up after a bit of a shortfall?

We had a small shortfall last month. Your donation today would help us catch up for this month.

Make a Donation, Get a Gift!

We need to continue to raise enough money each month to pay for expenses which includes hardware, bandwidth, software licenses, support licenses and other necessary 3rd party costs.

By way of a "Thank You" gift, we'd like to send you our STEX Collector's DVD. It's some of the best buildings, lots, maps and mods collected for you over the years. Check out the STEX Collections for more info.

Each donation helps keep Simtropolis online, open and free!

Thank you for reading and enjoy the site!
