Online Renewals using Credit- and Debit-Cards and Personal PayPal Accounts
For Members in Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe

Renewals are due on January 1 for the year ahead, but may be made at any time (for example, if a member wishes to renew ahead of time).

You can make renewal payments by credit- or debit-card via your personal PayPal account. Rates are quoted in GB Pounds, but will be billed to your credit or debit card in your own currency. (Refer to the currency converter at the end of this page for an approximate indication of what your payment will be in your own currency.)

You can also cancel automatic renewal payments if you opted for them in the past.

Please note that a surcharge of £1 (approximately equivalent to €1.20 / $1.50 ) has been added to all PayPal payments to cover the associated administration costs of this service.  

Annual Renewals ("Pay Now" button)
Select this option to renew for one year
or convert to a lifetime membership.

Automatic Renewal Payments ("Subscribe" button)
Select this option to renew your membership and have your credit card billed automatically each year.
*See note below regarding cancellation of automatic billing.


Complex Transactions ("Donate" button)
for multi-year renewals and renewals combined with other transactions

Select this option --
  • to renew for more than one year
  • to combine your renewal with a donation
  • to combine your renewal with purchase of a gift membership
  • to combine your renewal with other purchases.
  • Note: when making payments for donations and complex transactions, please enter in the payment (PayPal) window an itemization and/or explanations of payments using the "Add special instructions to the seller" tool on the payment confirmation page.


    *To Cancel Automatic Subscription Renewals
    There are two ways to cancel automatic renewal payments. Once you have cancelled them, you can then renew at the end of the year, if you so choose, when you receive the regular FoMA renewal reminder.
    1. If you created a personal PayPal account, or already had one, and are making your payments via your PayPal account, you can log in to your account and cancel automatic payments.
    2. You can also send FoMA a simple request to cancel automatic renewal payments.
