Donating to an open source project via bank transfer is never offered. Why not?

I treat it as 'service'. Convenient to pay anywhere... since banks dont provide it. If you dont give the service, someone else will, as long as there's demand. Same thing with paypal elecrow and what not, they asked for some percent. Same thing with tesla  or any businesses for the sake, they charge for something..

Maybe FedNOW and SEPA Instant will get integration?

Instant payments cause a lot of fraud though. Zelle is know for fraud and my bank refuses to implement SEPA QR support for fraud reasons. Perhaps it would be better if "instant" payments had a month of escrow.

Surely you can still pay via bank with paypal. But you'll still get hit with a fee that is close to CC, so not much advantage to doing it.

But then you just end up with chargeback fraud + having to pay people to verify cases. Which just makes it into a normal credit card at that point.
