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 (minimum £4.00). This Donate button has no connection with the membership system, so to register, choose REGISTRATION>SUBSCRIPTIONS. If you want to renew an existing membership, login then choose YOUR ACCOUNT>YOUR MEMBERSHIP and click on the link to renew or change your membership.

The PayPal Donate button takes you to PayPal’s site, but you don’t need to have a PayPal account because once there you can opt 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 PayPal

The “Donate” button above takes you away from my site and sends you 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 (minimum £4.00).

Other options:

Via Internet Banking

Those of you not wanting to use PayPal may pay directly into my bank account. Please send an email to say you have done this, and if the payment is for a membership, state which membership level you are purchasing.

My bank details:
HSBC Bank plc
International Bank Account Number (IBAN): GB02HBUK40280651475592
Branch Identifier Code (BIC): HBUKGB4105C

Note that most banks only allow a limited number of characters in the “Reference” field, so please ensure your name, or username, appears at the beginning of your reference.

Via Paym

For UK residents, 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.
