I'm pretty sure PayPal is the only option, but I am seriously thinking of closing my PayPal account because they will soon (July 1) require the ability to call, robocall and give any phone numbers associated with the account to third parties who can do the same. This would override any DONOTCALL registrations and PayPal will not provide an opt out. I am seriously considering closing my PayPal account and HubPages is the only place I need one, so that means I have to really think hard about continuing at HubPages, which is unfortunate since I'd sooner do without air to breathe.

Thanks for confirming, zebtron.
I agree there's no need to panic, but we should be aware. The problem I see is that, if PayPal does share your phone number with third parties and they do prove a nuisance, it's too late to do anything about it.
At least wait until you've read the small print, that's if a new contract for our old PayPal accounts becomes required. Or find out from someone you know who has already signed exactly what they've got. Act in haste, regret at your leisure. :)
The word affiliate could just as well be partner, subsidiary, or branch. Since they're separating from their only affiliate at this time, eBay, there aren't any more. Mainly they want legal clearance to send collectors after a person if necessary.
I saw that too, Ron. We'll see, but it sounds like the great unwashed may sway them yet. Thanks for the info re the FTC, too.
Saw this a few days ago. "FCC tells Paypal to knock it off with the robocalls" http://boingboing.net/2015/06/13/fcc-tells-paypal-...
