How to use the online system

Please follow the method listed below. If you have any problems please use the contact form to email Roger who will assist you.

New Members can join and Current or Lapsed Members can renew by using the method below


  1. Click Members' Information on the top menu.
  2. Choose "Renew by Card", "Join by Card" or "Pay by Bank Transfer" (see point 17 below) from the menu on the left. Please note that paying by Bank Transfer using internet banking avoids the charge made by PayPal for processing card payments and helps keep the membership fee down.
  3. The Enrolment, or Gift Aid renewal Form appears.(HMRC rules have changed and a new gift aid form is required from all of us).
  4. Please complete this either as a single member or if you are including a second person at the same address please fill in the second person's details.
  5. If you pay sufficient tax on your income and wish Guildford U3A to benefit from part of this tax please check the gift aid declaration. Note all pensions are taxable.
  6. Submit the form.
  7. The form is automatically sent to our Membership secretary who will create or update the membership record.
  8. You will be redirected to PayPal to pay the £22.00 per person annual charge.
  9. Renewing members must enter the membership number of the person completing the form.
  10. Please note members who share a surname have just one membership number: co-resident members who do not will have two but only one is needed.
  11. New Members please enter 1,000 as the Payer's Membership number, because the field is required and this will complete the process.
  12. You can pay with a credit card or a debit card you do not need a paypal account.
  13. When the payment process completes you will be returned to our home page.
  14. When our e-commerce system updates our secretary's system your membership will be fully validated.
  15. You will receive an email which you should print off and produce as proof of membership when attending enrolment day or your first class of each group each year.
  16. If you choose to pay by Bank Transfer you will be sent an email with the account details and the reference to quote.
