The membership fee for Associate Members

The first payment method allows you to pay from your PayPal account or a credit/debit card, with a commission paid to PayPal as the real-time Payment-as-a-Service. The second payment method means you pay the fee by bank transfer offline yourself (an email will be sent to you with ABCP's bank account details). We do NOT recommend you use a credit/debit card to pay as it will incur a higher commission.
