There are PayPal settings in the cp, just set it up so the users need to be in a "premium" group to post.

Also, theres a mod at UBBDev (here) to pass registrations through Stop Forum Spam which squashes quite a bit of spam registrations...

I added the Stop Forum Spam mod shortly after it was written, and I can't remember the last time I had to deal with a spam post.

Do you think that this will be included in V8?
