Sorry for being almost a week late. It seems we’re all late getting started after the holidays. I must confess I was pretty lazy and got behind on some of my ANP duties, but I’m more or less caught up.
This is going to be a short report, but an important one. As most of you know, a few months ago the ANP signed up for a PayPal-like system for accepting dues and donations electronically. This was basically a brand new system and indeed, not all the bugs have been worked out. Many people have tried sending in dues and we never got them. The money is not lost. It is still in the accounts of the donors.
The problem is they THINK they have paid and everything is cool. It is not. Donations and dues are WAY down. This could be because many people have dropped out and did not bother to notify us. It could also be because of problems with GabPay.
When you are setting up your account, they will ask you to link your bank account to GabPay. There is a page with a list of banks. You just click on one, and enter your account number, and everything is fine – as long as your bank is on the list. The list is basically made up of the larger, well known banks like B of A, Chase, Citibank, and Wells Fargo. If you bank at one of these – or any of the big banks, there is no problem. However, if you bank with a small regional bank like Joe’s Credit Union or the First Bank of Peoria (I made those up), then there is a problem. There is a way you can link your account from those banks, but I don’t know how to do it.
What I recommend is that if you are going to pay using GabPay, send me an email asking me to notify you if I receive your dues. Whenever someone makes a successful transfer, GabPay notifies me. If I’m not notified, your transfer did not go through. That means you will have to go back to sending your dues in cash or money order by regular mail. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but until all the bugs are worked out of GabPay, this is how it will have to be. In fact, anyone who has used GabPay should send me an email and ask if their dues have been received, just to be on the safe side. Thank you. My email is [email protected]
Well, that’s about it for now. My next report will be on or about February 1. Until then, stay safe and Hail Victory!
