Oh, err, you're right.
What is a reason why people must be registered with Groups.io to use that button? Why can't non-members sponsor a group? And is there a specific reason why such people can't sponsor via e.g. PayPal?
They need an account with Groups.io to sponsor a group because the payment mechanism uses existing code that requires a Groups.io account. I don't see that as a serious impediment. If you're interested in a group, you probably have a Groups.io account anyways.
I haven't added Paypal because the last time I looked at Paypal, their API was a mess and it made me feel dumb because I couldn't figure it out. I think their API has changed over the last few years; I will work up the courage to look at it again at some point.
