This article goes over all of the companies that stopped allowing their service to be used to donate to wikileaks, and says “US financial institutions including Visa, Bank of America, Mastercard, PayPal and Western Union, stopped accepting or handling payments intended for WikiLeaks in December 2010, after the site began leaking US diplomatic cables from a cache of nearly 250,000 it had acquired.” Because of this, wikileaks estimated it lost at least $20m in revenue.
