    It was a quick guestimate of active members.

    If you click on the Members button in the top banner, on the right hand side it says "Showing results 1 to 20 of 4832" for some reason - not sure what's going on there.

    Nope we have 22,000+ accounts, a large amount of that is a waste of space that I am planning on actually getting sorted shortly after TDU2 comes out as some may return. Honestly there is about 7000-8000 members who are actually worthy of that title and as Ryzza says there is about 4000-5000 who are actually active.

    4000 -5000 is still a lot for active members. Most places I see only have about 10%

    Now we should force them all to donate their left eyes for us to sell. :evil:

    You first get redirected to a second page where you confirm your order, from there you get redirected to Paypal which is where you will actually make the payment.

    It says i don't need a paypal account to do so. In the first page.

    Edit:
    And i'd like to see my options before i confirm anything.

    When you get rerouted to Paypal you can choose to pay without creating or using an account. At least that's how it supposed to work, but a lot of people on the NCG forums claim that they need accounts anyway so I'm not sure how/if it works properly. You can just try and see what it looks like, no one can touch your money until you've entered your card details and finalized your payment anyway. I've always used a Paypal account and it has always worked flawlessly.

    :hmmm:

    It's just, why i have to confirm something without know how it will be paid? Which is more complicated, since over here we don't pay things in dollars. Guess i will have to talk to someone who works in the bank to know more how these international payment works...

    What do you mean? You enter your credit/debit card details along with a few other things and then press "Make payment" at the bottom of the screen. It's not complicated.
    When you make the payment, your bank automatically converts the currency from your Brazilian reals into American dollars. They might use an interest rate that is slightly in their favor but it's not really worth debating over.

    That's for Paypal to worry about, not you ;)

    The Paypal site will make it fairly obvious when you reach the page that says 'Pay now', you can cancel at any time up to that point. It's not like eBay where you commit to buying before paying for it. Even if you do pay for speshul you could technically request a refund before the payment is Accepted.
