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 choose to either pay traditionally (which will lead you to the payment information below) or with 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. Singaporean paypal payments to us are cancelled due to Singaporean money laundering laws. Contact if you are a Singapore resident.

Cheque Payment (US only)

Traditional payment should only be used as a last resort - but we really do not recommend this. You can pay using one of the methods below, but we really prefer you to use PayPal. The reason for this is that check processing takes longer, and we need to undertake many manual actions, we need to reconcile your payment with your account, and we need to wait until your payment has cleared. When sending payment be sure to include:

  • E-mail address
  • Membership name as supplied during the registration process
  • Your first and last name.

As an alternative you can mail your payment. Do note that check processing will require much more time to activate your membership. It is a manual process which we carry out very infrequently due to the small number of payments. Activation can take anywhere between 30-60 days.

Prepare a check or money order payable at a US bank for the annual dues in the amount of US$35 (which includes the $5 handling fee) to the order of Pagoda SL Group, Inc.

Mail the requested details (your e-mail address, membership name and first and last name) and your payment to:

Pagoda SL Group, Inc
P.O. Box 24802
Jacksonville, FL 32204
United States of America

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 Don't have a PayPal account? line. On the next screen you will get an entry form where you can add credit card details and approve a single payment to Pagoda SL Group. Visa, American Express and Mastercard are accepted.
