Have you tried to register for Warpstock 2001 or
purchase some merchandise, but had problems with the PayPal system? Perhaps you
live outside the U.S. and were deterred by the 30-day verification delay? If so,
then there is a solution. Registering for Warpstock 2001 and buying Warpstock merchandise
can be now be done through our eBay store! The URL is http://www.ebaystores.com/warpstock2001.
The Warpstock 2001 eBay store lets you purchase
the same items at the same price as with PayPal. It's just another method for OS/2
users to buy Warpstock tickets and merchandise. Some people prefer PayPal, others
will prefer the eBay store. The choice is yours, and after all, isn't that what
OS/2 is all about?
The key difference between the PayPal system and
the eBay store is that the eBay store does not require you to verify your account
with your bank or credit - a process which can take a month with Paypal for people
outside the U.S. With the eBay store, payments can be made immediately, via MasterCard,
Visa, Discover, or electronic checks drawn directly from a U.S.-based bank account.
Until September 1, the registration price for Warpstock

shirts and coffee mugs, which can be either picked up at Warpstock 2001 or delivered
The Warpstock Board of Directors and the Warpstock
2001 Event Team look forward to welcoming the OS/2 community to Toronto for the
greatest Warpstock experience ever.
