Accepted Payment Methods
The IMRF Bookshop can receive your payment by PayPal, PayPal Express, Debit/Credit Card, Bank Transfer by your bank or by Transferwire. We hope to add a few more payment methods in the future.
When you choose PayPal or PayPal Express as your preferred payment method, you can either use your existing PayPal account, or - if you don't have a PayPal Account - you can pay as a "guest" and pay with your Credit/Debit Card.
When paying as a guest, click on the "Check Out as a Guest" button, and follow the steps to pay by Credit/Debit Card.
Please note that when you pay by PayPal, we do need to add an Administrative Fee to the total price of your order, which is 3%.
Pay by Bank Transfer (Bank Deposit)
You can select "Bank Deposit" when on the check out page and complete the payment by bank transfer. The invoice and completion page of the sale has all the bank details on it.
Once the payment is in the IMRF Bank account, we will complete the order as soon as possible.
Transferwise - Bank Transfer
You can also make a bank transfer through Transferwise - https://transferwise.com. You do need to create a free account, but the currency and bank fees are far lower than a normal bank transfer. Make sure you have your own and our bank details at hand (which can be found on your invoice). Transferwise is in the top 10 of best Bank Transfer website of 2021.
The Debit/Credit card payment method goes through ShopifyPayments and accepts the most commonly used Debit/Credit and Euro cards.
Please note that when you pay by Credit Card, we do need to add an Administrative Fee to the total price of your order, which is 2.2% plus £0.20.
Changing Your Payment Method
Even if you have chosen a specific payment method when placing your order, you can still e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us you wish to change your payment method.
If you rather choose to pay by PayPal or Credit Card, instead of Bank Transfer, for example, we will send you a "Pay with ..." e-mail that has a link to a safe payment portal online, which you can use to make your payment.
Please note that when you pay by PayPal or Credit Card by "Pay by ..." e-mail, we do need to add an Administrative Fee to the total price of your order.
Because "Pay by ..." e-mails are done directly in PayPal or Stripe Credit Card, the Administration Fees are:
PayPal Payments have an Administration Fee of 3%.
Credit Card Payments have an Administration Fee for European Credit Cards of 1.4% of the total amount, plus £0.70. For Non-European Credit Cards it is 2.9% of the total amount, plus £0.70.
