As a trip leader, you must forward to the Club the fees that you collect from participants. The Club charges fees for the following:

  • non-member activity fees

You can either send a cheque to the treasurer, pay by Interac email transfer, or you can pay by PayPal. This page tells you how to pay by PayPal.

How to make a payment

Each time you click on an Add to Cart button, your PayPal shopping cart will be displayed. There, you can adjust quantities of any chosen items. When you view the cart or checkout, you will be taken to the PayPal page, where you will have the opportunity to adjust / correct the quantity. We recommend selecting one of each of the payment types you need to make and then adjusting the quantities when you check out.

To handle the case where someone might have given you the incorrect amount, you can make an adjustment. For instance, if someone gave you $11 instead of $10, use the Incremental adjustment item to adjust the amount accordingly.

All financial transactions occur on PayPal's secure site. No credit card or contact information is seen by or recorded on the Club's site. PayPal will notify the treasurer once the transaction has completed successfully.
