RS: Donate with PayPal


I was going to make a donation but was surprised to see that I must enter my email address and PayPal password on the RS site.

Sorry, I cannot do that. The only place I enter my password is on the PayPal web site.
Clicking the button should take you to the Paypal site. RS won't ask you for your paypal credentials!
Paypal does pull in the banner at the top from the RS site but it's definitely Paypal.
Ok thanks, but Ebay for example takes you to the PayPal login web page which is recognizable as such.
I did it a while ago with zero problems.

I am sure it is ok and above board. However the page is totally different to the one I use most which is the main PayPal login page. As far as I can remember, whenever I pay by PayPal I am always directed to the same main page. It just threw me when I saw this unusual page.
What do you see if you follow the donate link from

Edit: I used the link from:

I just checked the link from and it also is different to the one I expect.

You need to blank out your email address better, it appears to be in view in the screen captures. If indeed, it is your 'real' email address.

Elementary, my dear W*****N.
If I made it too obvious, I would have been compounding the issue.

That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it. ;)
Paypal have a habit of changing how things look pretty frequently.
Presumably its a good way to deter bot attacks.

I didnt notice the donate button before - perhaps if it was copied to the top of the forum sections
it may encourage a few more donations?
