The Free Software Foundation has setup a system which allows everyone to order items or make donations online by paying with a credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover and some more are accepted). The online ordering is available at http://order.fsf.org/ and online donation at http://donate.fsf.org/. If you're in Europe, you might also consider donating to the FSF Europe. For the curious, the system implemented by the FSF uses Python and mod_python together with Apache-SSL to communicate with the user. It also makes some use of GnuPG.

I placed an order shortly after it was announced. It worked well -- there were no problems. I ordered the GNU C Library manual, and had it shipped to the UK.

The international shipping is not calculated but it worked out at about 20 dollars, which was reasonable as the manuals are pretty heavy (2 volumes) and they arrived within a week, which is fast for shipping from the US to the UK.
