View Full Version : Money

So with our first attempt at handling a team purchase (the case badges (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MassachusettsTeam/Projects/AluminiumCaseBadges)), I figured it'd be a good time to start working out how we'll submit money to the team:

1) Cash - About as simple as possible for the sender, but there's no real paper trail to follow, and a lot of burden is placed on our "treasurer" to make sure everything is kept separate.

2) Check - Not everyone has a checking account, but at least in this case the recipient will be able to identify who has paid what.

3) Money Order (http://www.usps.com/money/sendingmoney/moneyorders/welcome.htm) - I like this method a lot. It's offered at any nearby Post Office (http://www.switchboard.com/usps.1355/dir/6_0/index.htm?mem=1355), and can be easily redeemed. There is, however, the added difficulty of having the sender go to a post office to pick up a money order, and there's a $1.05 fee tacked on.

We can go with one option, a combination, or something I haven't even mentioned. Any ideas?

I voted for money order, i think it will be more easier to get and keep track of.
