Foreign Credit and Debit card payments

      No Comments on Foreign Credit and Debit card payments

As I’m sure you have noticed we now accept payment for range fees, subs, ammo etc. on the range by card. This is more convenient for many members and also helps the Treasurer by reducing trips to the bank to deposit cash. However the club has been seeing substantially higher processing fees lately and this has been traced back to punitive charges applied by the card processor for payments made with non pound sterling cards (and also to a lesser extent higher fees for Amex chargecards).

PLEASE COULD MEMBERS AVOID USING FOREIGN CARDS and Amex if possible.

I assume this is also more expensive for the people doing it as their banks will be charging them a wide spread for the currency conversion! If you tap to pay with your phone please check which card it is using.

If not possible please note that the cardholder may be invoiced for the cumulative additional processing charges by the Treasurer at year end as we do not think it fair that other members should subsidise this charge (which is material vs a £2 range fee).
