      How long will the fund take to clear? Approx.

        How quickly you get the license info depends on the payment method you use. The quickest is with PayPal using the funds in your PayPal account. This should take just a few minutes unless the payment was an eCheck payment, in which case it usually takes 3-5 business days to clear.

        Credit Card payments can take up to 24 hours to be verified.

        Wire Transfers can take up to 4-5 business days.

        And finally checks can take as long as necessary for the check to reach us, be deposited and clear our bank.

            It should not really matter.

            If you have validated your email and/or bank account in PayPal you can add funds to your balance and send money.

            When you purchase the vBulletin license with PayPal you will get an overview of the transaction listed in your PayPal account. Click on details and see if the status of the transaction is set to 'completed'.

            If you have paid with eCheck over PayPal, you will probably see 'pending'.

            If you have paid, and the transaction states completed, but you have not yet received the email from vBulletin, then please check if you have used the right Email address. And otherwise contact [email protected] with all the possible details from the transaction. That way they can find the transaction and validate it came from you.

                I am glad, and hopefully you make a smooth purchase soon.
                I did so in 2001 and used PayPal myself, it was very quick and easy and the next day my site was already online. vBulletin has helped me grow it at least twice faster then concurent software. (saying that as end-user and not as support guy)
