Can imgur add an option "PayPal checkout" to go pro ?

"PayPal subscribe" is not suitable for users who have not a credit card, I am the one.

Thank you for your consideration.

The pro subscription is a yearly recurring credit card charge, so you must have a credit card on file. We are working on other ways, but for now Pay Pal is the only option. 
This has been asked before. And the developer replied that they are working on adding alternative payment gateways. I personally would prefer to pay using Google Wallet or any other mode rather than PayPal. 

I no longer have a PayPal ID and I do not want to create one just to renew my Imgur Pro account. I end up asking my friend to pay for me using his account and I pay him cash. 

This is a once a year hassle I would like to get rid of!

Has there been any progress on this? I'd love to go Pro but am not creating a PayPal account to do so.
I complain about this every year. Every year I end up using my friend's PayPal account. By the way, Imgur has apparently stopped using this platform. You should be complaining here now: http://help.imgur.com/
