I’ve been using flickr for a while and decided that maybe it’s time to upgrade to a pro account today. Then it told me that I had to pay via paypal. I’ve talked before of my annoyances with paypal and ran straight into them again today. I normally use just one credit card online and it’s obviously not attached to the paypal account I was trying to use, so it was rejected. Of course if I knew the other paypal accounts I’ve had the misfortune to have created for me over the years I could solve this, but sadly I don’t. How an online payment system that’s supposed to be so simple can cause so much confusion is beyond me. The outcome is that I don’t have a Pro account at the moment and won’t be rushing to try and upgrade again anytime soon.
