Try SwagBucks, where you can earn prizes just for searching the web! I have earned more than $60 Amazon credit so far, and get about $10 more each month just for using it instead of Google.

I don't usually play racing games but I'm having a lot of fun with SBK X and WCR. Props to Gala for having such a nice melange of games.

Props for melange. And I agree. I chuckled at no mouse support for SBKX, but I need to use my controller for that one anyway.

Looks like they added the music. The list is as follows:

Baron Von Luxxury - 'The Last Seduction'
Losers Come From Above - 'Biggest Failure of All Time'
Electric Children - 'You Are'
DJ Cutman - 'Poweglove'
DJ Cutman - 'Deadmau5

Anybody who bought a BTA bundle should now have access to this music on their download page.

Do you need another copy of the bundle? I could buy one more 4-pack if there's still a need.

Well if Slim Gatsby still has a few bundles to unload, people should just go to him instead. I was only offering to buy another 4-pack in the event that all other sources of group buys dried up.

Quick questions on the Paypal thing as I have only used it to pay someone once and I gather the idea is to avoid paying fees.

It looks like there are no fees to send money to someone if you use your cash balance or bank account. Does the recipient care/need to care if my money is coming from one or the other as long as it is not coming from a credit/debit card? Do I need to care?

Does everyone use the Gift option on the Personal tab when sending money to a bundle host?

There are no fees regardless of how you pay when you send money. The recipient is the one who gets charged a fee. Buyer is never charged unless the buyer opts to pay the fee, but I'm not sure what methods cause it to show up (maybe need to be invoiced?).

But in order for no fees to occur, you are correct with the direct funds or bank account. Although you would also need to use the personal tab as well. Using the non-personal tab would still incur a fee for the recipient regardless of how it is funded. So for your question, it does not matter which way you fund it, as long as you don't use a credit/debit card and choose personal.

Although I'm not sure how or what is acceptable here when hosting a bundle like this.

We always do bank funds or paypal balance gifted to a person. That is the only way to avoid any fees. If it is a purchase of something from one person to another (as opposed to a group buy) then the appropriate thing would be to send it as a payment and the recipient incur fees as part of the cost of doing business, but I'm sure Paypal would probably want fees for everything event he group buys.

Another consideration is to only do personal with people with goodr atings as personal transactions don't have the same paypal protection.

Thanks for the responses. I wanted to make sure I understood the process before getting in on a group buy when I don't have a paypal balance. I don't want to pay fees and I'm sure no seller wants to pay them either just because they offered to host a group buy.

No problem. It's a relatively easy process once you get the hang of it. You can either transfer money to your paypal account and keep a balance, or just transfer directly from your bank account everytime you gift. For Amazon group buys I always offer the host the option of sending them an Amazon e-gift card in advance so they can apply it to their account and use it towards the group buy without coming out of pocket. So some people are more flexible with options.

I personally charge a higher amount because not many people are familiar with how the payment options work and I sometimes come out losing money when I host. I feel like these responses should be noted somewhere so group hosts don't get charged more for being helpful. ;)

I don't remember all the situations but sometimes I get an extra cost to me using paypal and sometimes not.

I'm pretty sure paying with the gift option when it's not really a gift breaks the user agreement, and you have no recourse if trades go bad.

PayPal's "Payment Owed" option (also fee-free) covers "things like reimbursing a friend for your share of a restaurant check"

IMO, group buys fall under that category as opposed to everyday commerce. So I'm OK using that or "Gift".

Now that the indiegala V is coming to a close, what do you guys think of this bundle?

To me, it is a very enjoyable bundle. Especially Puzzle Kingdoms and Ninja Blade. Ninja Blade is very good consider the bundle's price. Beat Hazard turns out to be a very decent twin stick shooter.

btw, I am looking for a bundle for my bro, any has a spare to sell please pm me?
