Support Sal's Realm
Thank you for your interest in donating to Sal's Realm of RuneScape.
We rely on our website users (that's you!) to support our growing website and community. There's always a need for funds to finance the hosting of our site, including our dedicated server, bandwidth, hardware upgrades and domain registrations and renewals. "Extra" software and continued support for that software is also an essential piece of the backbone of our website and community. It really adds up!
Sal's Realm of RuneScape is, and always will be, a free site. But, if you like what we do and want to show your appreciation, please consider supporting our site with a donation.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Why should I donate to this site?
- Sal's Realm of RuneScape depends on our users for support. We offer a completely free service dedicated to everything RuneScape-related. However, running a popular website is not free. If you enjoy this site and have some extra money, a donation is a fantastic way to show your support!
- What happens to the money I donate to the site?
- All donations are used to pay for expenses related to running this website, including server hosting, bandwidth, server hardware upgrades, domain name registrations and renewals, and software purchases for the website and community.
- How do I donate?
- All donations are made through Paypal, a secure third-party payment processor. Above, you will find a donation form allowing you to enter a donation amount, as well as the name you would like to have credited on our Wall of Supporters page. After you fill out and submit this form, you will be brought to the Paypal checkout page, to review your donation. You may also add a short comment to be included with your name on the Supporters page. You can then submit your donation through Paypal.
- Do I need a Paypal account to donate?
- No, you do not need a Paypal account. Paypal also accepts credit card payments from all major types of credit cards.
- How much should I donate?
- The amount you donate is entirely up to you! Every donation is welcome (and greatly appreciated!), regardless of its size. Remember, all those small donations will add up over time.
However, it is important to note that Paypal charges a transaction fee for every donation we receive - currently $0.30 + 2.9% - regardless of how much the donation is. So, donating $0.30 (or less) will end up being completely eaten up by Paypal fees, and we will not receive any portion of your donation! Please keep this in mind when donating to our site!
- Are there any incentives for donating?
- Every donor has the option of appearing on our Wall of Supporters page - essentially a "Wall of Fame" thanking everyone who has so kindly donated to our site to help keep us running! Furthermore, by donating to our site you're contributing to the growth and development of Sal's Realm.
- What if I wish to remain anonymous?
- That's entirely fine! If you wish to not be featured on our Supporters page, simply leave the "Name" field blank on the form above. Your donation will still be greatly appreciated!
- I don't live in the United States. Can I still donate?
- Absolutely. Paypal accepts credit card payments from over 190 countries.
