Price Rises

By 10/12/2019Announcements

We are about to embark on a brand new year… 2020!!

With all the new adventures on the horizon for ShowChoirUK, we need to make sure that we are still financially viable.

As you know, I am all about Openness, Honesty and most importantly, Transparency!!

Until now there have a choice of payment methods:

PayPal

PayPal charge 3.4% + 0.20p per transaction.

If you pay your subscription via PayPal:

£26.05 – 3.4% (0.89p) – 0.20p

Monthly Fee = £24.96

Business Banking charge 0.30p

Amount ShowChoir receive
£24.66

Stripe

Stripe charge 1.4% + 0.20p per transaction.

If you pay your subscription via Stripe:

£25.55 – 1.4% (0.35p) – 0.20p

Monthly Fee = £25.00

Business Banking charge 0.30p

Amount ShowChoir receive
£24.70

GoCardless

GoCardless charge 1% per transaction.

If you pay your subscription via GoCardless:

£25.55 – 1% (0.25p)

Monthly Fee = £25.00

Business Banking charge 0.30p

Amount ShowChoir receive
£24.70

The Fee’s applied to each transaction by the particular platforms and the bank have meant that, when purchasing uniforms, certain items have left ShowChoir in deficit.

The problem with GoCardless is, the banking system does not talk to the Membership System. This means there is a lot of work for me in the “Back Office”

With Stripe and Paypal, everything is Automated!

So… The Important Bit

We have decided to scrap GoCardless and PayPal

When your December Payment has gone out, please cancel your Direct Debit at your bank (I will also be closing my GoCardless Account down). You will then need to “Re-Join” using the Stripe buttons on the choir page.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to do anything except set up your payment method using the form.
