Deactivation of credit card payment option

For ordering a full access subscription to the Organ Site or purchasing CDs or MP3 downloads, there has been an option to pay by credit card.
Since this option was less and less used but it still costs me about EUR 50 per month (plus commission) this has become a 'minus business'.
Therefore, I do not offer payment by credit card anymore. Alternatively, you may still use PayPal or bank transfer for making payments.
