Covid 19 has proved tricky for many businesses, it has certainly had a massive negative impact on the miniatures side of my business, sales of resin items have dropped by about 70%.
The other side of my business, the one that offers a service has suffered too.
Don’t forget when supporting your favourite businesses to support those that offer a service, it is too easy to forget them and instead concentrate on those that offer a physical product.
The Wargames Website is a business and has overheads but the vast majority of people that use The Wargames Website use it without paying to do so.
You can use it for free, that is a thing for sure, that is fine.
But if you can afford to take out a paid membership, either as a sponsor for just £1.00 a month or as a Trader for £5.00 a month then please do, it helps put food on our table and keeps the community going.

I remember a discussion some time ago about how to pay more for a sponsoring membership. Was the conclusion the only way to do this was multiple Paypal subs? Is trader membership okay for more non-traders or is this going to confuse things?
Having recently started a thread asking whether I ought to want to pay more for my hobby (and indirectly been accused of being a ‘tight wad’ for asking!) this may seem a strange question, but I feel the urge to put my hand in my pocket a little deeper – how do I do that as an existing subscriber?17/12/2020 at 11:08 #14840017/12/2020 at 11:43 #148401Guy FarrishParticipant
Yes, makes sense.
Done. (I think)
Switched to a trader account.
Definitely worth a fiver a month!
If you haven’t got a sub, I’d urge you to pay the minimum at least. £1 has to be the best value ever.
I really want to see TWW prosper. Mike’s doing a great job and if you can spare a fiver a month I can’t think of many better ways of spending it.
Thanks Mike!17/12/2020 at 14:36 #148407ThuseldParticipant
I will vouch for having the £1 subscription. I literally don’t notice it leave my account. At some point I hope to move up to a £5 sub. This website is a great community. Thanks, Mike.

I’m the same as Thuseld, don’t notice the pound each month. Maybe upgrade to a Trader account. Or can you still donate on the CA website?
I’ve been supporting my local restaurants and eateries. Only just realised how much the hobby sector must be suffering. I have continued with a new project which has seen me buy some tangible stuff. Never thought about those that offer only services.18/12/2020 at 18:18 #148501
Hi. a Trader account would be more to me than 5 sponsor accounts, as a £1.00 is only 65p once PayPal takes its cut
That’s disappointing to hear. Is there any way to set up a recurring payment via the Friends & Family option where the recipient gets all the money that is sent?

Well I’m a bit annoyed to discover that I’m donating 35p per month to Paypal. I see that money as wasted. Is there a way of making a payment to your business account by another path?

I’d rather you got all the money Mike, so if you’re prepared to give me your details I can do an electronic transfer. I’ll probably do 12 months at once so that there’s less remembering to do. A crucial factor at my age. What’s your name again? 😉
