Why do I need to wait 30 minutes to cancel a donation after making one?

When making a recurring donation to upgrade with us, PayPal sometimes takes a few minutes to mark the payment active. If you decide you want to cancel your donation with us straight away and before PayPal has done this, it’s possible the payment profile won’t cancel in PayPal. So by waiting 30 minutes, this gives PayPal enough time to process and activate your donation.

You can cancel the donation anytime after this 30 minutes safe in the knowledge that no further donation payments will be taken. You can of course cancel the payment profile anytime in PayPal itself.

Obviously we hope you decide to keep your recurring donation going with us to benefit from your Gold Account on an ongoing basis, but you are free to cancel anytime.
