Default Trying to upgrade to premium membership not very friendly

I have a PP account with a balance but i would rather put membership on CC.
Since CC is accociated to my PP account it won't allow me to use it. I have to pay with my PP balance. So I guess I won't be upgrading any time soon.

Right, but it would be nice if HBT offered another method of upgrade.

PM TX, the site admin. He is probably the only one that can do anything about it, if anything can be done.

If it was through a credit card, a dispute with them could have got the green back if things were done right.

I don't know of any website that offers multiple credit card processors. That's not a reasonable request.

If you really don't want to use paypal for some reason, then contact the administrator about paying for your membership via regular mail.

You're kidding, right?
How about just a cc processor?

Paypal is an extra layer of protection for all parties. People don't take a form of payment for all kinds of reasons.
If you have been scammed and Pay Pal didn't take care of it that means you didn't do anything about it. I had a bogus charge show up on my Paypal account and by the time I got off the phone (thats right people, I picked up the phone and called someone rather than send an email) there were two more charges. Long story short: all my money was returned in a few days.

To the OP: here's a crazy idea... set your credit card up with Paypal...
