Because of the delay and interaction necessary for this solution, this work-around will only be available until 5pm on the last evening of preliminaries for the Teen and Miss pageants. We apologize for this. We have been working with Paypal and they have not been able to solve the problem for all cases.
We have had some issues with Paypal not accepting payments and we want to help while we work with Paypal to get this fixed. Please follow these steps:
1) Try one more time
2) Take a screen shot of your browser window when you are denied
3) Email your screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the name of the contestant you want to vote for and the number of votes you want to place. — DO NOT send any credit card information.
4) We will email an invoice to you for the amount of votes you wish to place and you will then be able to pay this invoice online.
5) We will get a confirmation of your payment and then we will add your votes to the contestant you selected, this will not happen in “live” time, but your votes will be added as soon as we can.
We will continue to press Paypal to fix the issue, but we want people to be able to vote now. Because of the delay and interaction necessary for this solution, it will not be available up to the close of voting during Pageant Week.
