Join GQRP Club by Paypal

Use paypal to Join or pay your subscription. Payment must be in Pounds Sterling only.

[You don't even need to have a Paypal account to pay by credit card - read on... ]

Please note - send subscription payments to Paypal using the form on the club pages only. This is not optional, it is mandatory if you wish to use Paypal. Please do not use any other method than this. The web form provides me with an email that has very predictable text. This allows me to script and automate your data entry and send an acknowleding email. It also charges you exactly the right amount to cover the Paypal costs. The web form allows me to more accurately and more easily process thousands of transactions a year. Here are the three links :-

Graham Firth G3MFJ (our club treasurer) describes using Paypal to renew your subscription or join the GQRP club:-

The Paypal membership rate is £6 GBP for UK members,
European countries £12 GBP, [definition of what we mean by Europe]
and for DX countries £15 GBP.

We require payment in GB Pounds please. Your credit card will be debited in your own currency at the prevailing exchange rate. PayPal charge us a transaction fee and this reduces the amount we get - so we have added a fee of 50p UK, 71p EU, and £1.01 DX to the transaction as "postage" when you use the "buy it now" pages found here:-

The total that you will pay will not be very different than if you posted a cheque to us.

Before you click on the "Buy Now" button, please will you enter in the box your callsign (whether you are a member or not) and also if already a member, your membership number. Now if you click on the button, it will take you to the PayPal page.

If you already have a PayPal account, then log in as normal.
If you do not have a Paypal account, click on the "Continue" on the left.

This takes you to a page where you have to put your address and credit card info. You are given the option of saving this info, and this will create a PayPal account for you. If you do not wish to save it (because you don't want to create a paypal account), then just click on "Review Order and Continue".

Now you have an opportunity to review the order, you will see that your callsign and membership number have been carried forward to this page. Also, the transaction fee - now shown as postage - has been added to the total. We hope that you will not mind us doing this. If you have any extra information that you wish to pass to us, then there is a "Add special instructions to the seller" option and you should use this. Clicking on this will open a text box for your notes.


Graham's details will show on this page - even though the payment may be for Daphne. This is because as Club Treasurer, all the PayPal accounts are in Graham's name.

Finally, click on "Pay Now" to send the payment. If you are paying in a currency other than your own PayPal will convert the amount and charge your card in your own currency. When the payment is accepted, we get an email to say that we have received a payment. You should not send another email direct to Daphne - one from Paypal is enough.


As a matter of course Daphne G7ENA will always confirm a paypal payment. If you don't get an email after a week has elapsed (in case we are on holiday) please then email her direct to check the funds have arrived. Just occasionally, Paypal forget to send an email, or perhaps it may get lost. We do not mind being reminded but please allow time for Daphne to get to your payment. This is especially true in January when Daphne is handling many thousands of membership renewals.
