  • Some Pre-Sales Questions

    1) When purchasing vBulletin, I want to use Paypal. Am I required to use credit card numbers?

    2) I currently have an IPB board with many modifications. Do I pay extra fees for conversion? (I don't need to preserve the modifications. All I need to transfer are essential information.)

    3) If I convert IPB to vBulletin, will it look exactly the same in vBulletin as it would have been if I started out with vBulletin originally? I've seen a forum being converted from Phpbb to IPB and some features in IPB did not look well as it does when you start out with IPB originally.

    Thank you!

    1. Yes, you can use PayPal without a credit card.

    2. We have an importer, but it will only import the data from a standard IPB database. You can read about the Importers here:

    3. The imported data will look just like a standard vB forum, uuntil you customize it.

      It says "PayPal with credit card" at the checkout?

        If you have money in your paypal account, paypal will give you the option to pay from your existing funds.

          Discount for non-profit?

          I am the president of the

          We would like to use vBulletin, but we would like
          to have a discount for non-profit groups.
          IQTVRA is an international group with members in some 40
          countries, devoted to promoting uses and applications
          of 360-imaging. So let's keep it simple:
          you offer IQTVRA a nice discount, I will pay you
          via paypal, and we'll get vBulletin up on our site.
          And then we'll all be happy

              Thank you for your intrest in vBulletin, however our software is a professional commercial bulletin board solution that costs $160, or $85 a year for a leased license - which we believe is ranged lower then average competition. We do not offer discounts at this time

                I am thinking that 90% of vB sites are non-profits.

                  This is because you can use a credit card with paypal.
                  But using paypal you have the option to either use eCheck, credit card or the funds from paypal. I suggest using the funds from the paypal balance. It is fast.
