Frequently Asked Questions concerning PayPal Registration

What is PayPal?

PayPal is an account-based system that lets anyone with an e-mail address securely send and receive online payments using their credit card or bank account.

Does it cost to use PayPal?

No. It is free to open and send money using a PayPal account.

Is PayPal secure?

Yes. PayPal uses SSL technology to keep your information safe. In addition, when you send a payment using PayPal, the recipient won't receive sensitive financial information like your credit card or bank account number. This way, you don't have to worry about paying people you don't know.

I used PayPal to register your software, and I haven't heard anything from you.

If you are using an e-mail or SPAM filter, please be sure that you are able to accept e-mail from the addresses below:

We respond to ALL e-mail received within 24 hours! If for some reason you haven't received your passwords after 24 hours, please check your SPAM folder and send us a message using the snkdavis address above. If you still do not get a response from us, please send another e-mail with your telephone number so we can get your password to you. There is a good chance we are responding, but you are not receiving our replies.

Did you receive a Receipt of Payment from PayPal with a Transaction Detail? If not, your registration did not go through. You will receive a notice from PayPal usually within minutes of your transaction, and we will receive your Notification of Payment for your registration. We process transactions within 24 hours of receipt.

If you did receive a Transaction Detail from PayPal, please copy and paste the information into an e-mail, send it to us using the snkdavis address above, and we will contact PayPal concerning your order. Your Transaction Detail should have the date, time, the Affirmatech e-mail listed above and the amount which was paid with a Transaction Number.

If you did not receive a Transaction Detail, please try PayPal again, or you may send your registration via regular mail. Our address is:
