Alternative payment options

Currently we only accept transaction via Paypal on this sign-up and renewal page. Paypal transactions will be processed automatically, whereas (international) bank transfer need manual processing on our side. We encourage you to use Paypal whenever possible.

When Paypal is not an option for you, you can transfer the membership fee via (international) bank transfers. If arranged in advance, it might be possible to pay at State of the Map events. Contact the MWG to see what is possible.

(International) Bank Transfers

This process will take multiple weeks, since we need to wait for the bank statement and one of our volunteers need to process the payment manually.


  1. Make the transfer (GBP 15 for normal and associate members) using the account information below.
  2. The information we get via our bank is very limited and therefore is sometimes missing crucial information. Every time you make a payment, meaning every year for a membership even if you set up a recurring payment, fill out this form such that we can best match your payment with your account:
