Payment by cheque
If you have not yet paid this year’s subscription, please send a cheque to me at the address below. If your membership is registered under a different name to that printed on your cheque, please include details to enable me to log the payment correctly, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope if you require a receipt.

As an experiment for 2013, we will accept payment direct into our bank account at the same rates as for cheques.

Account name: Regional Furniture Society

Remember to send me an email to advise me of the amount, date of payment and name of payer, and add any other name under which we may have your membership registered.

Banker’s orders
Most members choose the convenience to both themselves and the society of paying by banker’s order. Download a Banker’s order.

If you already pay by banker’s order, please take a moment to check your January bank statement against the membership rates listed above. If you find you are paying less than the current subscription rate, please contact your bank now, to amend your banker’s order for payments from January 2014, and send a cheque to cover the shortfall in this year’s subscription to me immediately. Include an email address if you have one. Those members who continue to pay less than the current subscription rate will be deemed to be making a donation to the society, but will no longer enjoy the privileges of membership.

Overseas members
We have currently had to suspend accepting subscriptions by Paypal from overseas members. Those who previously paid by Paypal, should contact me by email for alternative ways to pay. We recommend overseas institutions pay through agencies such as SWETS, Harrasowitz or EBSCO.
