PAYMENT OPTIONS (sorry we don’t have card payment facilities or PayPal)

  1. CASH – Payable only at the Open Day Morning. The Treasurer will be on duty to issue cash receipts for all payments.  (Note – For security reasons tutors are not authorised to accept cash payments at their courses so you can’t pay on the day of your class).
  2. CHEQUES – Membership and course fees can be paid by mailing a cheque to Computerpals, PO Box 73, Broadmeadow NSW 2292. For membership new members should attach their Membership Application form (downloadable from here) and existing members a note with their name advising renewal. 
  3. BANK TRANSFER (including Electronic Funds Transfer from your bank account and over the counter deposits at your bank or financial organisation) – There are only a limited number of characters which come through on our bank statement so please use the following protocol in the reference section. Your SURNAME and INITIAL, plus M (for membership payment) and C (for course payment) followed by the course number(s).  For example if Fred Bloggs was paying his membership renewal ($25) and also enrolling for course 52. Basic Computer Skills ($10) and course 54 Windows 10 ($20) the reference would be – F BLOGGS Mb C 52 54 and the payment to be transferred would be $50.00.  If you are enrolling for multiple courses which will not fit into the allocated reference characters please break it into two or more EFT payments.  You will find this method is quick and easy and saves you the time and expense of mailing an explanatory form to our PO Box number as was required previously.  Our bank account details are – Computerpals with NPBS BSB 650 000 Account 962205402.
