Frequently Asked Questions:

What are membership rates?

Subscription rates can be seen on the Subscriptions page https://webcollect.org.uk/wkc/subscription

I have a renewal notice for a single payment. How do I choose monthly instalments?

Click on the renewal email, and log on to WebCollect. When you see your renewals, select the RENEW buttons next to any memberships that you want to renew (they will be added to the basket), but leave the Annual subscription. Now click on “Buy a different Subscription” to add a monthly instalments option.

Do I need a PayPal Account to pay by Credit/Debit card?

No, PayPal allows you to pay by credit/debit card without creating an account.

Why should I use direct debit?

Direct Debit can be used for single or repeat payments. It’s extremely simple to set up (no signatures required, or difficult questions), and then you will have the option to renew your membership, or pay for future events using your Direct Debit. Payments are backed by the Direct Debit guarantee.

Can I pay for someone else?

Yes. There is a page at checkout where membership(s) are assigned to your name, and a link next to it saying “Change”. Click on that, and you will get the opportunity to add someone else and pay for them.

How do I change the membership type e.g. to renew with monthly instalments?

When you are renewing, you can

1) click on the “Renew” button for any subscriptions you want, then

2) wait a moment for the basket list to disappear
