Account Sign Up & Activation
You can read more about why we have chosen this route in my forum post "v2.0 OS Released!".
Here are instructions to help guide you through the process:
- If you are paying via direct paypal payment:
- Go to PayPal pool page directly.
- Click "Chip In" and login to paypal and pay from your default funding source
- OR if you prefer to pay with a credit or debit card:
- Go to PayPal pool page or use the Donate button.
- If at the PayPal pool page, click "Chip In".
- Use the grey "Pay as Guest" button at the bottom of the PayPal pool page, rather than logging in to PayPal. This will take you to a page where you can enter your card information.
It might make sense use the same username & password for our Owners Portal and the Community Forums for the sake of simplicity in password management (the databases are not connected). This can also help me identify your account more easily across the board, as I don't always know who is who without this information.
When you have completed the PayPal pool donation, if you have not already done so, please return to owner.johnbowen.com to complete the signup process with the guidelines above in mind.
