How can I pay?
You can pay by
To make a national or international transfer, please see MET's bank account details. Make sure you include your name and purpose of payment when making the transfer. All transfers must be sent free of charges for MET. If you are transferring money from a non-euro country, you may wish to consider using Transferwise.
If you pay by bank transfer, membership will become effective once payment has been received.
Direct debit is an option only if you have a Spanish bank account. Print, fill in and sign the direct debit authorization form and return it to MET by email (scanned) or by regular mail. The MET membership fee will be debited directly from your bank account on receipt of your application form and at the end of January every year thereafter, unless we receive instructions to the contrary.
To pay using your credit card, select the “PayPal/credit card” option. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay by credit card via the PayPal system. Although the first thing you see when you choose this option is a form asking you to sign in to PayPal, further down there is a less prominent option for those who do not have a PayPal account.
If you are outside the European Union or in any situation where it is difficult to make a bank transfer, you may find it more convenient to use the PayPal online transfer system. Please do not forget to include details of your payment in the space provided on the PayPal page.
Why choose bank transfer?
Bank transfer is the best option for MET regardless of where you are based, and may not be as expensive as you think. If you are a eurozone resident, under Regulation (EC) No 924/2009
your bank cannot charge more than it would for a transfer within your home country. In contrast, for a membership payment of €38 MET pays a PayPal charge* of €1.64, or 4.3%.
