Yesterday I upgraded my Flickr A/C to PRO. Earlier I thought the limit in the basic free version is only the 20MB per month upload limit. But when I reached 200 photos I found out that my later photos started to vanish when I uploaded the new ones as there is a display limit of latest 200 photos. Unfortunately Flickr processes their on-line payment through Paypal and worst case is Sri Lanka is not in their list of countries to make an on-line payment. The alternate is to send payment via money order. I'm so much used to making on-line payments and really didn't want to go through all the pain of manual methods. Writing to the forums in Flickr didn't help my course though finally decided what I should do. There is a great option in Flickr where someone can buy a Flickr PRO A/C for another person. So I told my friend abroad to get me one. And he did :)[Smile]. So that solved my problem in five minutes. Flickr being a Yahoo! company should consider about choosing payment method that everyone can use as I know there are lot of people who want to upgrade to PRO but finding it difficult because of this problem. Their application is by far the best for sharing photos over the web. Hopefully they will come up with some alternates for paying on-line by the time my A/C expires.
