How to pay entry fee via Paypal ?
If you wish to pay by credit card it is same step to use Paypal. The difference is if you pay by credit card, you have to give all details (card number, expiry date, security code etc) to seller each time. If you pay by Paypal,
you give same information to Paypal when sign up then you do not need to give these information to any other sellers because Paypal will pay on behalf of you and sellers will not ask your details so it's very safe.
You do not have to pay any registration fee when you sign up.
You can send money immediately after sign up as much as you are allowed to spend for your credit card.
You do not have to pay any monthly maintenance fee to Paypal so you can keep it as long as you wish and you can close your account at any time.
When you pay entry fees by Paypal, enter our Email (email@example.com) and amount in GBP.
Before you send, Paypal will ask where to deliver? so please select 'No physical delivery required).
As soon as you transfer, the payment will appear in our Paypal account so you do not miss deadline.
