Credit Card Payment

The Executive has investigated the option of setting up a credit card payment facility on the AWATEA website.  Currently, AWATEA receives only sporadic payments at the time of membership renewals (from 1 April each year) and for specific functions, such as the conference.  The costs of a credit card payment facility would be approximately 5% of the total transactions.  The Executive has decided for the time being not to proceed with such a facility, because it cannot bear such costs and does not believe members and registrants would accept a 5% surcharge on their membership and conference registration fees.
