Ways to Pay

You may pay for your BIOS membership with a single lump sum or by joining our Direct Debit scheme to pay monthly.

Single Payments

You are able to remit your membership fees in one payment via a variety of methods:

  • online via PayPal at the time of purchase
  • online via PayPal at a later date (click through your invoice or log in and click through in your Profile)
  • by Internet transfer, quoting the reference shown on your invoice
  • by cheque, following the instructions shown on your invoice

Direct Debit Scheme

You may join the Direct Debit scheme to pay your membership fees at any time. Event registration fees cannot be paid in this way.

To join the scheme, simply click here  DD Form.pdf,  (and be sure to sign it), and please return the form to the Freepost address on the form.

The DD payment year runs from January to December of the membership year.  For example, if you pay for your 2017 membership over the membership period, you will pay from January 2017 to December 2017. Memberships will be automatically renewed for the following if BIOS is not notified by 30th November. For example, if you do not wish to continue with your membership in 2018, you must notify BIOS via email no later than 30th November 2017 that you do not wish to continue, failure to do so may result in a cancellation fee.

If you join the scheme late, the first payment may be larger, we will contact you to advise you of the amount that you need to pay to bring your account up to date. If you have any questions please do not hesitate contact the office on +44 (0) 203 853 9797 and we will happy to assist you.


If you are not currently a member of BIOS and plan to rejoin for next year, your membership will commence from 1st January, please do contact the office +44 (0) 203 853 9797 if you have any further questions.
