    Just registered my copy of MorphOS via the built-in reg app and it worked flawlessly.
    Now my problem would be actual payment. I have no credit card and banks in Finland have the policy of not releasing customer data to services like PayPal.
    Even cheques are not guaranteed to work as they need the same information.

    So I would like to know what my options are - bank/money transfer would be preferable.

    Proably not the best to post this is the MorphOS Application Compatibility area, but...

    On a releated note, I'm not able to get to my Peagasus until after the special introductory price offer is over, would I be able to buy this without installing it?

    Well, I've installed MoprhOS 2.0 and it looks great! I registered too and I went to the links I found in my e-mail... But when asked to click for Pay-pal operation, I found a wrong page saying "page not found - Pay pal" ?!? And now?! Pay what.. :-?

    :-? Aren't most of the developers from Europe anyway?
    Why can't I just transfer the €111 (and 11 cents) to a dev's european bank account and they send me my key :lol:

    I can only agree. Please give us a bank account to transfer our money to.
    I will certainly not register at PayPal!

    Too bad! Pay Pal doesn't allow me to sign up! I mean, when I click on signup button "we are sorry this page cannot be displayed".... I folwed instructions on that page but it's the same...
    There's something ridicolous in this: I'm doing all I can to buy MOS 2.0 and I find only problems :lol:
    I'm becoming Mr Bean :-)
    But there's more.... I tried to logout for many times and I appear always on line :-)
    ....ehm... someone have some magic potion..?!?

    This is rather weird, but it's paypal fault in any case. :)

    Well, maybe try to force to some language if you can, maybe it got broken for italy maybe. I'm a bit out of ideas here. Could you try in another place ? I can't believe paypal banned all people from your country. :)

    @ fab

    Oh no... I've never thought it!
    By the way, I went to www.paypal.com and it didnt work. Well, I guess that the fault it's only... mine!!! I explain: I tried to click on Morphzone page pay-pal button with IE 7 and the result was a not found page. Ok, went online with Peggy (mon amour...!) and doing the same action brought me in the pay pal account page! So, without questioning on MS products (AH AH AH!!!..ehm..), I tried to go in my hotmail page (done!), login (done!) and click on the MOS TEAM mail... Damn.. It did'nt work! Not so bad.. I discovered the fault and I can repair. ;-)
    ah, les italiens....
    Tonight, after the war..ehm the work, I'll do it!
    regards to you all and thanks!!!

    ps: using blender... ;) seems a lttle bit slower.. Perhaps...emotioned?!? :) Enjoy!

    Incredible!! Amazing!!
    Tried to buy MOS 2.0 keys again: open mailer on laptop and clicked on link MOS-Team sent me. Nothing to do. Ok, but it cannot ends here.. :-x
    Installed AmiSSL libs and certs via user-startup and opened IBrowse 2.3: copied the link I found in my mail and... My God! IT WORKS!!! :-o
    Well, go before MOS slow-down! created an account and arrived in the payment page... One click from key... NOOOO!!! It freezes!!! :evil:
    Rebooted, re-IBrowsed, re-logged-in (after three times...I thought the log-in datas were lost) and then... DONE!!! :-)
    Uff... Today was a long day... So much long... It's better go to sleep... 8-D

    sorry for insisting on that point but would the mos team reconsider about the licencing stuff and make a licence per user ?

    i'm very surprised by the way they reward the community for its patience.

    Something like Apple's household license would be very welcome, but I guess currently this will not happen. Anyway, today I registered for my Efka and on weekend I guess I put it on my Peg and register that one, too.
    At least it would be interesting to know if it will be possible to move one license from one computer to another (my peg is soon celebrating its 6th birthday, who knows how long it will work (of course I hope it'll live long))

    I think the chances of a 'user key' getting into the wild are probably too high under this method...but it's only a matter of time before some scumbag works it out, even under the current system :-/
