Payment methods

  1. If you want to pay by credit card you can use MasterCard, VISA, Maestro, American Express or JCB. You will pay in GBP, through WorldPay. This is our preferred method. Paying in different currencies is always more expensive, both for you and for us.
  2. If you live in the UK or have a bank account there:
    • We recommend you to pay by bank transfer to our UK HSBC account.
    • Alternatively you can still use a cheque in GBP for the time being. It should be payable to the Foundation for Endangered Languages. Please follow the instructions on your invoice. This method is less preferred as it generates a lot of extra administrative work at our end.
  3. If you live elsewhere in the EEA (European Economic Area, i.e. EU and Associated countries), or have a bank account there, we strongly recommend that you pay by SEPA Bank Transfer. This is by far the cheapest method as in most EEA countries there are no or low bank charges for private transactions. You have to make your payment in euros. Your invoice will be in GBP, but the corresponding amount in euros will also be shown on your invoice.
  4. If you live in the US or have a bank account there You can pay by bank transfer in USD to the Bank of America account of FEL Inc, our US branch. Please follow the instructions on your invoice. The amount due in USD will also be shown there.
  5. If you live outside the UK, EEA or US and don't have a credit card:
    • You can make an international bank transfer in GBP, using the 'our cost' option, i.e. you pay the costs of the transaction. This method is not recommended as bank charges for international transfers tend to be very high.
    • We have positive experiences with alternative methods, such as Wise (formerly known as TransferWise), which can be used to transfer amounts directly from your into our account from many countries at a low cost. The website is https://wise.com
