The club introduced the PayPal payment option a few years ago, to provide an alterntive method of payment for flying. At the time the financial transaction fees from the service provider were deducted from the member payment, and the remaining funds credited to the members invoice. The process for deducting the transaction fees was laborious and time consuming, it was also confusing to members as the invoice they thought they had paid was a few always dollars short, as a result of the service provider transaction fee. When the PayPal processing workload was combined with the work that was required to straighten out the clubs accounts, it was decided to stop the process until a simpler solution could be found.
Recently a new service provider was identified that automatically processes the financial processing fee, at the time of payment. As a result the club is in the process of changing over to the new provider, and plan to roll it out during Oct. - Nov. The new service provider is called eway and is based in Australia,
Once operational, members choosing to pay via credit card or PayPal will have the financial processing fee added to their invoice total at the time of payment. The service also simplifies the processing of credit card payments, compared to PayPal.
