Payment Guide

This guide sets out the options for paying for entry to events and membership subscriptions. If after reading this you are still uncertain, please contact WECS or your bank for clarification.

PayPalTM

You can pay on-line with a credit or debit card including Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Switch, Electron and many other cards via our secure PayPal service. You do not need a PayPal account to use this service. However, if you do have a PayPal account then you can pay using that.

Cheque

Please make cheques payable to 'West of England Costume Society' for the requisite amount (in £ sterling (GBP) only).

For membership subscription, write your membership reference on the back of the cheque and post it to:

Membership Secretary
5 Clarendon Villas
Widcombe
BATH
BA2 6AG

For event booking, write your booking reference on the back of the cheque and post it to the address given on the event booking payment page.

Standing Order

This method is convenient for the regular payment of your membership subscription. If you bank at a branch then print out and complete a Standing Order mandate form. You can then post it or take it to a branch of your bank.
If you take along your debit card they will be able to set up the standing order while you wait.
If you bank on line then follow your bank's instructions giving the following WECS bank account details:

Bank: Barclays Bank plc
Branch: Warminster
Beneficiary: West of England Costume Society
Sort Code: 20-05-06
Account No.: 10129976

Bank Transfer

You can pay by bank transfer in a branch of your bank, at an ATM or via on line banking. This is an electronic transfer of money from your bank account to WECS's.
Take a note of the WECS bank account details shown under standing orders, above, and of the amount to be paid. (You may find it convenient to print out a Standing Order mandate form as a record of the WECS bank account details.)
Take these details to a branch of your bank along with your debit card where they will be able to perform the transfer while you wait.
Alternatively, at an ATM, follow the instructions for paying a bill, entering the WECS bank account details and the amount.
If you bank on line, follow the instructions for paying a bill using the WECS bank account details and the amount.

Please note that WECS is not able to collect payment by Direct Debit.
