Online Payment


Payment is via Paypal; Paypal should automatically convert your currency. You do not need a pre-existing Paypal account to use the site; but you will need to create a PayPal account in order to make the payment - PayPal now requires this because of anti-money-laundering legislation. If you're in a territory not supported by Paypal, contact the Membership secretary using the form on the Contacts page and we'll try and work something out.

Buying by Post


If you don't want to buy the products online, please download the postal sales form. A third option (to using this cart, or to using the postal service) is to just go to Paypal and use the "Send Funds" function there to wire payments directly to membership AT (replace the AT with an @); this may be helpful if you want to use the online service but are having problems with it.

Family Memberships


Family Memberships are memberships which provide all the benefits of membership except for a Slingshot subscription (e.g. a membership number, vendor discounts, forums access). They are available to individuals living at the same address as a full (Slingshot subscribing) Society member. They were previously made available on a chargeable basis. They are now free. To ask for a family membership, please submit your request via the contact form, setting the Topic to "Family Memberships" if it is not already that.

Worldwide Postage


Your membership subscription includes the Slingshot postage price, worldwide (yes, the price is the same for everyone). Other items from the store are charged for postage at cost, which is calculated during your checkout process.
