Yesterday I tried to order something. On the confirmation page was a really big button to pay by "pay pal" and a very very small link to pay by "bank transfer". The different size is strange enough. The problem is that klicking on "bank transfer" results in a redirection to the home page and nothing else happens.
My impression is that "bank transfer" is not working for technical reasons and/or is not the preferred payment method for shapeways.
For political reasons I will never ever use pay pal. If no other payment method is offered, I cannot use shapeways anymore.
I asked the support yesterday, but I have not received an answer.
