How To: Pay Band Fees Through PayPal Directly (not through Charms)
How to pay band fees through PayPal
If you’d like to make a payment directly through PayPal, here are the steps to do that. You do not need an account on PayPal to pay with a credit card.
Remember though, PayPal charges a fee of approximately 3%, so we’ll apply to your student’s account the amount that PayPal gives us. By multiplying the amount you wish to pay by 1.03, you get a total that will cover the PayPal fee.
Example: Band fee is $40. To pay this entire amount through PayPal, send PayPal: $41.20
$40.00 x 1.03 = $41.20. PayPal fee is $1.20 and $40.00 will be sent to the student account.
First go to this link:
Enter the total dollar amount you wish to pay.
If you would like to pay with your PayPal account, click “Donate with PayPal” and login to your account.
If you would like to pay without a PayPal account, click “Donate with a Debit or Credit Card”.
On the next page, where you finalize the payment, you can leave a note with the ‘Add special instructions to the seller link and let us know it’s a partial payment for your student
Fill out the remaining information and click “Donate Now”
