I would have become a member a long time ago if the money transfer 
process was more standard. I am not comfortable sending the details of 
my credit card via snail-mail or fax. Perhaps you could set up a 
proper Internet service or give people the chance to pay by paypal? I 
realize that could mean some initial outlay, but maybe it would be 
worth your while?
