Band fee payments can be made online using PayPal. You don’t need a PayPal Account to pay with a credit or debit card. During the payment process, you will have a chance to enter your credit or debit card information.
Because Paypal deducts a fee for each online payment, the Band Boosters prefers payments by check or cash. e.g., For a $300 payment, Paypal deducts $7 and the Band Boosters receive $293.
Paypal forbids adding a surcharge for its use so if you would be willing to add an additional amount to your fee payment to cover the Paypal cost, that would be appreciated. You can voluntarily offset the Paypal cost by using this schedule:
Marching Band fees and Winter Guard fees are both $300 and can be paid below. Marching Guard allows fee payments in installments. Examples of voluntary fee payments: . Fee $100 + Paypal charge $3 = $103 payment Fee $200 + Paypal charge $5 = $205payment Fee $300 + Paypal charge $7= $307 payment
After you press the Pay Now button, you will be taken to a Paypal page where you can enter your payment amount.
