3.    Make Automatic payments through Paypal.com. Great for Dues!

First, set up a Paypal account for yourself at Paypal.com.

There are two options at this point.  You can complete the membership form and check “I would like to pay monthly dues online”, Choose “Yes”.  When you “Submit” the form you will be taken to your PayPal account to authorize a monthly charge.


a.     In PayPal, go to “Profile” (the gear in the top right corner)

b.      Click on “My Money” on the left.

c.     Click on “My pre-approved payments” and enter the information for making payments to [email protected]      Fees for us =  0.30 cents/ $10.

4.    Receive a monthly Invoice and then decide if you can give.

If you don’t want to set up “autopay” you can be “billed” every month, with an Invoice sent from Paypal.com to your phone.  When you receive it you can click on “pay through my Paypal Account”, or if you prefer not to have a Paypal account, you can enter your credit card number directly. This way you can choose when to give.
