Did the pre-login actually work for you? I found someone else suggesting
that solution too, but it didn't work when I tried it.

> The only other option is to go into PayPal manually and disable
> 2-factor auth before you use the MUUG system.
> Also, you can always skip the login completely and use the "buy as

> From a quick show of hands it appears less than 5% of our users are
