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 PayPal or by Credit/Debit Card (PayPal will also accept a Credit/Debit Card). 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. If you choose the Credit Card option, you remain on my site to make the payment.

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 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/Debit Card.

Via Stripe


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 (IBAN): GB02HBUK40280651475592
Branch Identifier Code (BIC): HBUKGB4105C

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.
