PayPal Subscription Page Now in English (or your choice)
« on: September 20, 2016, 18:59:24 »
For those who wish to help support our interesting, cool and non-profit NikonGear by subscribing, we have finally figured out how to make the default Nikongear subscription page on PayPal pop up in US English.....

.....unless you currently have onboard your PC or laptop a stored PayPal account cookie which determines the language you will see from your PayPal account settings.
 
Should you get the default US English subscription page, you can set another version of English or you can set your language of choice -- if offered by PayPal -- by selecting your country from the Country drop-down menu.

For example, our UK members can choose United Kingdom and thus see an address form tailored for UK style addresses. By PayPal design, some non-English speaking country selections present only English on the default (no PayPal cookie) NG subscription page. For example, Finland and Indonesia pop up a default English page as per PayPal design.

Please let us know if you encounter any difficulties with the NikonGear Subscription process.

To subscribe please click:  Profile > Actions > Paid Subscriptions > Order > Order with PayPal
Do note the optional checkbox for Recurring Subscriptions.

As mentioned before, when the PayPal cookie is still present on your PC you will end up on a PayPal login in screen in your chosen language.

If the cookie isn't present PayPal somehow thinks you don't have an account yet so you end up on a subscription page, thanks to Andrea this page is now in US English by default instead of Dutch which only few of us understand.

So thank you Andrea for making NG a little better  :)
Cheers,
