Are there any good alternatives to Paypal for accepting donations over the internet quickly?

I'm part of a fairly small (about 60 members) online community and over the last day, one of our members was made homeless and lost all of her possessions in a fire. We're getting together donations to try and help her get back up on her feet, but a lot of people are concerned about using Paypal due to the recent problems that regretsy have had with trying to fundraise through it. Are there any reliable alternatives that we could use?

A performance art as business website?

Seeking an artist's webpage: she or he has a unique business model of direct commissions via PayPal for actions at different price levels (will write a note, will travel to place X and take a photograph, send the photo to you, etc). None of my search keywords are turning it up ... ring any bells?

Getting my money back from ebay auction?

I bought an item on ebay, and almost 3 weeks after I paid it hasn't arrived. I've tried to contact the seller to get the package tracking number (since I paid extra for delivery confirmation) through his paypal email address (bounced back) and through ebay's messaging system (did not respond). I don't think I'm ever going to get the item, and at this point I'd like to get my money back as quickly and with as little hassle as possible. Should I initiate a dispute with my credit card company, ebay, or Paypal?
