Note that this pages splits financial and hardware donations, which
I understand that you don't want, right?

As I said in a previous post, evaluating in-kind donations against
a financial scale is possible, albeit not always easy, and the
evaluation depends on many factors, including our need and
a suitable "market price" to use.

Yes, having a micro-payment service available for payments too would
be beneficial.
