I like WinSCP and tried to donate however the drop down list only shows the USA States. I live in Canada and the billing will not be correct so the payment will not go through. Suggestion to fix this problem. It should be easy for people to donate.

Thanks for your report.

I have forwarded it to PayPal support:

I got this report from one user who tried to donate to my project. And I was able to verify his claim.

When on donation form, after one specifies donation amount, one can choose either to login or create a new PayPal account in section "Don't have a PayPal account? Use your credit card or bank account (where available). Continue". After clicking Continue link, one gets to a sign up form. No matter what country one selects (Canada in this instance), the "State" drop down menu still appears with list of US states. One cannot submit a form without selecting a US state. Interestingly, when no state is selected, while Canada being selected for a country, error message reads "Province: Please enter a valid Province.", although there's no Province field visible.

I'd provide a screenshots, but there's no way to attach them here.

Thanks.

Got a response from PayPal:

We are aware of the issue and are working to fix it as soon as possible. I thank you for your screen shot, I will pass it along to our technical team.

In the meantime, I have a potential work around for you to try. You can try to create a PayPal account and then make the donation. I've included the information on how to do this below.

Here’s how to sign up for a PayPal account:

- Go to www.paypal.co.uk.
- Click ‘Sign up’ at the top of the page.
- Select your country or region and your language.
- Choose the account type you want (Premier or Business) and click ‘Get Started.’
- Enter the required information and click ‘Agree and Create account.’
- Select how you want to pay for your purchases (bank account or credit card) and click ‘Continue.’
- Check your email for a confirmation email from PayPal (the email might take a few minutes to reach your inbox).
- Click the confirmation link in the email.
- Enter your password and click ‘Confirm.’

It is my pleasure to assist you. Thank you for choosing PayPal.
