Subject: Re: [SG] Possible FAQ - Ordering GZG from the States?

I'd like to throw in a plug for my favorite e-commerce tool: PayPal
( SInce they recently went international (and have
from Xmas). It's a simple way to send money securely. They'll even set
up an
account with a bank draft so you don't even need to use a credit card.

All GZG has to do is open a business account (there's a small rake-off,
is how they pay their bills) and presto, 'they' accept credit cards.
simplifies the matter and is far more secure (anyone who can steal one
with a credit card # can steal the two with half each).
