Default Factory letter PayPal accepted ?

Hi,

I just took a look at the S&W historical foundation website today and found the form to ask for a factory letter and read « PayPal accepted ».

As I’m living in France it’s a great news for me if it’s really possible to pay with Paypal.
If so, does anyone know their PayPal account address ?

Then, I guess I have to print the transaction and to send it by the mail to prove the payment was done ?

Thank you for your help

Dear Lady Smith
We are not set up to accept Pay Pal yet. We do, however accept Western Union or cash US. If you send Western Union, you'll have to us me as the receipt for the transaction. Please send me a private email at hollypaw@comcast.net for further instructions.

Thank you.

In this case I will wait for my husband to be back home because IIRC he knows how it works.

It’s a shame you don’t accept PayPal yet
But the fact « PayPal accepted » is mentioned on the form makes me believe it will be soon.

Thank you

The Pay Pal accepted is a bit premature. I'm sorry for the confusion. If there is a bank in your area that can put your money in U S funds, you can do that. But it must say on the check "U S FUNDS".

Hi,

Well at the same time I wrote this thread, I have sent an email to the SWHF about that and today I received an email from Sheryl Cheely who sent me a PayPal invoice.

Sheryl asks me to send the request form to
SWHF PO Box 1494 Great Bend, KS 67530

Which is different than the address on the request form :
SWHF c/o Roy G.Jinks, Historian
PO box 669 Warren MA01083w

So I don’t know where to send it.

C.

Thank you vintagesmith but Sheryl Cheely from the SWHF has already sent me a PayPal Invoice.
I will send the request form tomorrow to the Warren address.
I think I have to join the PayPal invoice with the form.
Also, the space to write my address is too small so I think I will write my address on a paper.

I’m really happy PayPal is accepted though, it’s easier for us who don’t live in the U.S !

Thank you

Thank you Sheryl this will make requesting a letter so much easier. I've been waiting for the final touches to be put on this because I've got several letters I would to request.
