Is there a facility to contribute financially to the Ardour project via a vector other than paypal?

@wbaldwin: when I investigated them last year, I could find no other options that made sense. Just to be sure you understand: using Paypal does not require that you have a Paypal account. Its entirely possible to use a regular credit card to pay, and you can just regard Paypal as the transaction processor in that case. Did you have something particular in mind?

I would also like to use a different service. PayPal sucks and I hate to pay anything directly or indirectly to people I consider moral criminals if I can avoid it.
My choice would be moneybookers. Its as easy and cheaper, especially for small amounts. Its the only service I found which would allow real micro payment (if you donate 1$ with PayPal they steal almost 40% of it! Even if you got a special agreement with them, they steal it from others...)
I guess at least in Europe a normal bank transfer is a pretty good option as well, but a bit more complicated in terms of handling...

For you a link in french :-) http://www.moneybookers.com/app/?l=FR
