Frequently Asked Questions

The Problem

It says on your website that you don’t have to have a PayPal account to pay online but when you go to the card payment section PayPal will only open a Paypal Account for you, which I do not want to do.

What PayPal says:

“If you have a PayPal account, the option to pay by card will not work unless you use a credit card number that is not associated with your PayPal account.” 

Please contact PayPal for further advice and assistance. PayPal cookies may be an issue – try deleting them.

You must be logged in to renew your subscription.

There are a couple of reasons why a particular renewal option might not appear on the list:

  1. A transaction you started didn’t complete for some reason.
    Check the ‘Your Membership’ page for pending transactions. Contact to have any pending transactions deleted and the auto-renew flag removed.
  2. You have successfully renewed for 2017/18 and your account is set to auto-renew.
    If you choose to auto-renew you can upgrade but you cannot re-renew so the renewal option is removed from the list. Check your PayPal account for the FifeFHS auto-renew date. If the auto-renew doesn’t go through on the appointed date please contact us.

FifeFHS E-memberships can be purchased for one year or three years.

If you would like your membership to auto-renew, please check the box at the bottom of the form when registering for the first time or when making your first renewal since we updated the website in December 2017.

If you choose not to auto-renew you will receive a renewal reminder one year or three years from your registration date. 

Note that we have moved to a rolling membership system. Memberships no longer necessarily end in January – unless you join or renew in January, of course.
