Information about the payment of contribution
From 1 February 2014 the DPG will switch to the standard payment system SEPA.
SEPA – Single Euro Payments Area – enables the introduction of a standard European payments area, which treats credit transfers to other European countries in exactly the same way as credit transfers within Germany. The participation of the 28 EU states, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Monaco und Switzerland, enables the DPG to now also offer the form of payment SEPA direct debit throughout the whole of Europe. From 1 February 2014 the DPG is switching to SEPA. You will find all important information related to SEPA here.
Using debit entries
We ask you to make use of this payment method. Please quote your banking account for the direct account of your membership fee. We will debit the fee about 4 weeks after issuing invoice.
The current direct debit system will be replaced by the SEPA direct debit system on 1 February 2014. Please note our information at “SEPA – standard regulations for credit transfers and direct debits in Europe”.
Using bank transfer
We ask you to transfer the membership fee within four weeks. You find our banking information on your fee bill.
From 1 February 2014 the account numbers and bank identification numbers you are familiar with will be replaced by the IBAN und BIC. Please note our information at “SEPA – standard regulations for credit transfers and direct debits in Europe”.
Using a credit card
Members from abroad have the possibility to pay the membership fee (or a donation) by credit card (VISA or Mastercard) (minimum amount 15.00 EUR).
For this purpose our co-operation partner, the "Bank für Sozialwirtschaft", provides an online form.
Due to permanent attacks with stolen credit card numbers the minimum amount is 15,00 €.
We ask for your kind understanding of this decision of the credit card service provider.
If the minimum amount is larger than the required payment, the overpayed amount will be credited to your membership account.
The data will be sent by secure connection.
