Donations, and other payments

I am providing a “Donate” button here for people who may feel the need to make an extra contribution to the running of this site. This Donate button has no connection with the membership system. To buy a membership, or renew/upgrade an existing one, choose REGISTRATION>REGISTER.

You can choose to pay either via Stripe or PayPal. If you to choose Stripe it is quite quick for you, requiring only email address and card details; if you choose PayPal you are taken to the PayPal site where you can use your own PayPal account, or choose the “Check Out as a Guest” option to pay by Credit/Debit Card.

IMPORTANT: Please send me a covering email if you use any of the options on this page as I do not check into my bank accounts everyday. They are not linked to the membership system, so help me to help you by quoting your Username and the details of the payment. Thanks.

Via Stripe


Via PayPal

The “Donate” button leads to the PayPal payment system; you don’t need to be a member of PayPal – just choose to “Check Out as a Guest” to pay by Credit Card.

Other options:

Via Internet Banking

Those of you not wanting to use either Stripe or PayPal may pay directly into my bank account, stating your name on the bank transfer. Also, please send an email to say you have done this. My bank details:
HSBC Bank plc
International Bank Account Number: GB62MIDL40280651475592
Branch Identifier Code: MIDLGB2105C

Via Paym

I have set up my mobile phone number with my bank to accept payment using Paym. You will need to do the same with your own bank. Contact me if you wish to use this method and I will let you have my number.
