Payment Information

When joining for Basic Membership you will need to Register on this site. To join for or to renew your Full Membership please Login first. Then use the Profile tab on this site: then select either Join as a Full member or Renew Full Membership.

This will lead you to a page where you can pay with your credit-card via Paypal.

When you pay with PayPal (our account name is, you can choose to do this using your own PayPal account, or using your credit card (without creating an account, see below). In either case, once your payment transaction is completed, your membership on this site will be activated immediately, and you can access restricted sections of the site, or check out past issues of Pagoda Notes.

Pagoda SL Group cannot receive payments from Singapore. Due to regulatory requirements, users with Singapore PayPal accounts cannot make payments to Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs) and charities registered outside of Singapore. Contact if you are a Singapore resident.

Credit Card Payment

When you pay us using PayPal, note that you do not need to have a PayPal account. You can pay with a one off credit card transaction, without having to hold a balance with PayPal, and without opening an account with PayPal. Your credit card details are not stored by PayPal, and the Pagoda SL Group never even sees them.

Just join or renew as decribed elsewhere, and press the Pay Now (with PayPal) button. The screen as shown below will open. Click on the Create an Account line - even though you are not creating an account.

On the next screen you will get an entry form, clearly identifying it as a PayPal Guest Checkout where you can add credit card details and approve a single payment to Pagoda SL Group. Visa, American Express and Mastercard are accepted. If asked, do NOT click the create an account checkbox.

Check Payment

Check payment is no longer supported. The board of the Pagoda SL Group has decided to accept only PayPal payments. Do note that you can make a PayPal payment with your credit card, without opening a PayPal account, and with the usual credit card anti-fraud protection.
