    I don't know how many of you use(d) BidPay as a PayPal alternative, but thought you all should be aware of the following email I received today.

    "Effective December 31, 2007, BidPay.com, Inc. will be discontinuing operations. We regret any inconvenience to our users and thank you for your patronage over the years. Please note the following important details about the shutdown. Please plan accordingly.

    Effective IMMEDIATELY, BidPay will no longer accept new BidPay account registrations.

    Effective IMMEDIATELY, banner insertions for new auctions will be disabled. That means that any attempts to add “BidPay” as a payment option in auctions will not be effective. Accordingly, you should offer alternative forms of payment.

    Effective 5:00 P.M. PST, December 25, 2007, BidPay will cease accepting payments.

    From January 1, 2008 through 11:59 P.M. PST, January 31, 2008, registered users will have read-only access to their BidPay account information.

    Customer support services will be available through January 31, 2008 by contacting support@bidpay.com."
