I'd love to subscribe, but I prefer to keep the number of processors with direct credit card access to a minimum, does Crowdstack offer a way to pay via Paypal for subscriptions that could be implemented?

Crowdstack does not but keep in mind that PayPal charges us an additional fee over and above the processor that we use. Our profit margins on print subscriptions are pretty much nill. The advertisers actually are responsible for most magazines still publishing print. You would not be happy with what we should be charging for a print subscription.
Just so you know, we do not keep or have access to your total credit card info. For receipt reasons, our subscription vendor shows the last 4 digits of the CC that you used for your purchase but that is it. For auto-renewal purposes, the vendor actually communicates with your bank to make a request to renew your subscription and it is YOUR bank that approves that request. Honestly, if you are concerned about the use of your debit or credit card, then you may want to consider not doing any online banking or even banking in general since banks share information not only for their own purpose but because of certain laws that are in place. Your information is out there guys and there is not much you can do about it other than putting a freeze on your credit which is what my wife and I did years ago to protect us as much as possible from hackers. It doesn't take much time to take that freeze off if needed and then put it back on. In any case, we do accept checks and cash (if you want to send cash in the mail).
